    First complete shorts day today, albeit Endura baggies over Lycra. Just a shirt on the way home too, and short-fingered gloves. Marvellous.

    If it’s well worn then you’ll very probably need new chain and sprockets and all cables & outlets replacing. You can get a new rim built on to the existing hub (if the spokes are ok you can re-use them too) - you’ve got the older rims, so for that you’ll need a NOS older rim (think I have one). After that you can spend as much or as little as you like.

    Post some pics up so we can give you better pointers for what might need doing to it

    Not sure I can offer advice as such, but one of my customers is a giant of a man - 6’10” and must weigh 20 stone, he has a custom Roberts frame (the saddle reaches my armpit, at 5’9”) and he breaks components like clockwork. He’s has two Thompson seatposts snap on him, and the clamp bolt snap a couple of weeks back (with pretty painful and expensive results), loads of cranks (Madison stopped warranting them after the 5th or 6th) and pedals etc.

    I think what I’m trying to say is that he’s going to have to buy quality stuff cos the cheap shit will snap like a twig.

    Bit late with this but Trek frames have a lifetime warranty, and that will include broken stops. Get your dealer to organise a repair - I did one last year, no problem

    Hope you have better luck than I do. Dizzy has her own catch and release programme - she catches mice at night in the garden and then brings them into our bedroom.

    Ridiculous amounts of floof, it gets everywhere. Everything I own is covered in it. She’s gorgeous tho

    @ExTra, the head is at the top. The black tip right in the top middle is the top of her left ear. I only know this because I looked after I took the pic this morning. I sometimes can’t tell myself. Here she is now in a more normal pose after a good groom
