So > this guy < needs a minor bit of repair work on a steel frame, namely a cable stop rewelding onto the TT, and I just wondered like if anyone had anything done? I am, for my considerable and variedly disturbing sins, in that London and think it is therefore the centre of the Universe so Im not interested in anything outside of 'the Great Capital'.

Also looking to have this doen to a Knoa frame for my lad, so far drawn a blank and it seems a lot to ship to Argos and back for an £8 job.

There is Ken Baker in colchester. He is who I use. Very resonable as well.

I did it myself, easy enough and cheap to do too. My guide and a pic or two here:

Since then I've done some more work adding a canti hanger and moving the rack mounts.

Good work, but I dont have a garage/the inclination to do it myself - figured it should be a cheap/easy enough job for someone local though, after I have removed the rack mounts etc...

Roberts Cycles in Croydon. Don't know if they'd do repair work though?

Sterling work from Messrs Roberts no doubt, and if it was for my Roberts that where Id go, but the frame was cheap, and its only a cable stop. £20 at Oak Cycles - seems reasonable.
