I rang the bike supplier, and obviously tweeted the images to my friends. The company said that i was outside my 4 week defect period but they would consider paying for the repair.
Taking it to a reputable bike repair center they said it was the thinnest piece of bracket they had seen. It took over a week for the repair. The insurance company said they could get a replacement bike to me in 10 days and the excess would be £150.00 ( I could buy a new bike for that!)
When the bike came back, all seemed to work fine, but im still waiting for the supplier to refund the cost of the work done.
