I am wondering what to do with my RC200 frame which has a cracked head tube, any opinions on what it is worth, if anything. I have had it from new and the head tube developed a crack early this year. The rest of the frame is mint. Cheers James

Hi James, I've been looking for a seat clamp for ages if your old one is intact and spare? I'd happily bid decent money via pm if you'd consider selling it.

Regards, Mike.

Thanks for the replies. I considered getting the frame repaired but instead sourced an F5 frame and built that up instead so this F8 is spare.

Mike, I do not have a spare seatpost clamp I am afraid, sorry. Cheers James

Thank you very much for the reply James, I'm having to search pro-actively!

Best regards.
