So a new cable was needed as well.
And the cable end. I should have waited, it's only 20 pence for heaven's sake.
The old wire.
New cable fitted. Proper cable cutters for a clean cut rather than using my teeth or my wife's nail scissors!
I was feeling quite ebullient in the bike shop so I went for red. Safely crimped into place - no more fraying now!
How dare you! It refers to the tires, not me.
700 x 28 Gator Hardshells. I'm pleased with them so far.
I like using the external bottom bracket cups. They're light and durable.
