comment How come my bike has such a short seat post?
It's a 27.0mm, not a particularly popular diameter but still easy enough to find, thanks.

comment How come my bike has such a short seat post?
I'm guessing that it's the original seat post because I've owned two of these bikes (an '83 and '84 model) second hand and both came with a similarly length post. I've since fitted a considerably longer post with nothing blocking it.

comment What can I do about a cracked frame?
I can answer that just as soon as I bring a spanner to the bike. I strongly suspect that it's about where that crack is though

Yeah, it's Reynolds 531 tubing, and I'm not quite ready to give up on it yet! I've considered Argos before for a respray and decals. Maybe this is the perfect opportunity to go for it!

@Blam I've not yet pulled the tube - I keep forgetting the right spanner. I'll post a photo when I have, thank you.

I've stopped riding the bike for the time being, it might just get one more ride out to the shop for someone to look at.
