no pics though i could do if required
just looking at my dad's "winter bike" and it's in pretty rough nick! the main issue to me being the headset - a LOT of movement, like maybe 4-5mm
it's an old alu road frame (edin bike coop) and i imagine fitting a new headset would be pretty tricky given its condition (i.e. everything will be welded in there solid)
obviously not right, but is it actually dangerous to run a headset like that? braking and control under braking would be affected i suppose..
basically he wouldn't scrap it this winter unless i persuaded him it was actually dangerous to ride.
