    If this bike was mine I'd probably ride it slowly and carefully till I got another frame (the sooner the better). Not saying what you should do, just what I'd do.

    In fact, if I start and finish at home I won't eat or drink anything extra, so $0. Maybe I'll eat a little more when I get back home.

    Just resumed training and found my MHR is still high - 190 at 64yrs old. I used to do 2x20 intervals, the first one at 170, the second a bit higher.
