Yes, that could be an option but do you know when you get to that point that it takes over you?

I'm there.

It needs to go.

I'm not sure I'm comfortable with anyone riding a damaged frame, particularly if it came from me !

I've decided to split it and at least there's nothing wrong with the forks.

A trip to my m8s LBS tomorrow to break it all down and then wait for the dreaded £1 eBay offer. :sad:

So.

£250 payment by bank transfer only. Collection only.

If I don't sell it by 10 am tomorrow morning then it's the frame graveyard and part it out on FleaBay.
