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.

Clarified one point. Simplified sentence structure elsewhere.

I never use this gear, except for when testing that my service has been done properly. Updated the question to be more clear about that, thanks.
