UK.
Lives/is from nowhere near London.
Rides fixed most of the time, mostly not in London.
Races fixed for LFGSS.CC (TT & HC) or Team Shred It! (crit), sometimes in London.

Four track bikes and one road bike.

LFGSS is dead.

    Hehe, Boardman frameset came up cheap locally and I wanted something non-precious for drilling/nutserting, crashing and winter use.

    My Boardman in road fixed and endurance racer mode. Excuse the sweaty camera lens.

    Following the replies you received in the other thread, the best course of action might be to email DengFu (who are likely to be the manufacturer of those frames) with your problem and the above photo, asking if they can supply spare parts (direct from China).
    Also, as @Goyt suggested, Cycle Space (http://cycle-space.co.uk/home/contact-us­/) import and sell similar frames under the ADR brand, possibly from the same manufacturer, so a politely worded email to them might uncover some spare parts. However, be aware that the part you need is likely only imported/supplied with entire frameset, so expecting a UK shop to carry spares is a long shot. Also, as it's a Planet X frame you bought (and not an ADR one) you won't have the same rapport with Cycle Space/ADR as you would with, for example, Planet X (even if you didn't buy the frame from them), so be polite!

    Also got stems if you need; couple of adjustables (95 & 110mm) to lend for the cost of postage.
    £100 for the fork with that length of steerer is a good deal IMO.
    @Pifko Coincidentally, was rebuilding (and polishing) that bike (and fork) yesterday before reading this.

    Update: found one last month courtesy of Toshi at NJS Export. All sorted.

    I share that sentiment.
    Mine started with reasonably fancy bits inherited from other bikes (e.g. Thomson finishing kit, few carbon bits) but pretty soon (as it received progresively more use), cheaper more basic parts went on to the point that it resembled base factory spec.
    If it was my only bike, I might have been more tempted to spec it out, but because there were others that were nicer or faster, I tended to saved bling parts for those.
    I reckon fancy parts work better on frames that have been customised; they look more out of place on a frame with a stock Pomp paint job or with On One repro decals.
