I'll update this thread with some more pics in due course, but right now i could do with some assistance please!

This is the front mech route...anyone know if there should be a roller there? If so, where can I get one from :shock:

No roller, it's a cable stop.

Are those pen marks on the left, or something more sinister?

Cheers - thought so, couldn't remember there ever being a roller there.

As for the marks on the left, in the words of The Black Knight "'tis but a scratch" :)

Just about to answer this, but pipped to the post..

The front mech should have a 'Trek specific' barrel adjuster fitted to it, and the threaded bolt is indeed a cable stop. You can just about make it out in the picture below. No idea why they did it like that though :?

That's how its goes?! :shock:
Luckily i do have the Trek specific cable stop, but could have sworn it looped around and back up to the mech.
I'll re-do it :)

Trimble use the same for the front mech. It should make it smoother to change gear.

If you lose it (figuratively, literally or mentally), there is an alternative using a v-brake noodle and a top pull mech
