comment New headset cups loose against the frame
There could be a concern with galvanic corrosion with steel cups and an aluminum shim, especially if the frame is steel.

comment does anyone sell bicycle trailers with brakes?
What type of brakes are currently installed on the bike? My thought is this may be your best and simplest upgrade.

comment How to remove dried vulcaniser from cotton clothes?
Try freezing it and scrapping it with a sharp knife before using the solvent. Any bits that can be removed will be that much less for the solvent to remove.

comment Crank arm snapped: what could have caused it?
If it is an older model check for a recall, Shimano, Trek, Mongoose recalled thousands of cranks. I believe they were from the late 90's. A friend had his replaced about five years ago at no cost.
