    Make a claim against the builders – they should have insurance for this sort of thing

    i'm sure the shock is ok but the frame looks FOOKED to me, you should be thinking liability insurance from the 'builders'

    I suspect that is a write off – the dent reduces the size of the tube a chunk.

    I'd be after the builders to replace it on their insurance

    Well the builders are (not to be un-PC or anything…) Bulgarian and I'm guessing may not have insurance. Anyway, I've told upstairs (this happened a week or so ago) to pay out, I've asked for £300 and they seem to agree with this (though no cash has been forthcoming as yet 🙄 ) Yes, I know it's not worth £300 secondhand, but I may as well get some benefit from the faff!

    Is that mould under the windowsill?

    You do need some kind of compensation.

    not sure… though there is a nice rust stain running down from the stair's above!

    Just wondering what to do with the frame really… Is it a write-off, or could it be ridden (general XC duties)?

    If it makes any difference to your opinion, the dent is from a large piece of wood being dropped on the frame (by builders working on the stairs above; would've been nice of them to mention they were starting work, I would've moved the bloody thing! 👿 )
