Thermal Breaking Window


something wrong with this advertisement
proof is , heat up a piece of aluminium and see how long and how close your hand is to the heated section before you get burnt
then wrap a piece of fiberglass around the aluminium and heat it and see you get burnt at all
aluminium is used in all radiator fins for the heat transfer properties

The frame of my bike is cracked where the seat post goes into the frame.


You'll need to take it to a welding shop to have it properly repaired. Look at how much a similar "used" aluminum bike frame cost, then use that as a gauge to set a cost limit. Say for example a similar used bike frame cost $100 from a bike shop. If the welder charges $80 or more, then you might as well spend the extra $20 and replace the cracked bike frame instead of getting it welded. Of course, you'll need to take the parts off the cracked bike frame and transfer them to the used bike frame, assuming you know how to do it yourself. If you need to pay a bike shop to do the job, then having the welder repair the crack is cheaper.

On my bike the silver frame that holds the back wheel on and connected to the main frame has snapped where can i buy this part and at what cost pls


This is called the dropout. It depends on what material the frame is. If steel, a bike builder will be able to braze a new one on. If aluminium, this is still possible, but specialist bike builder or aluminium welder needed. If carbon fibre, need to take back to manufacturer.

Mud stain


depends on what material is stained.. Aluminium stains can be very tricky to get clean if not impossible...some cleaners will also cause a orange/reddish stain wich will not come out unless you use some harsh chemicals to get them out. problem is it's hard to get to those chemicals. IF you happen to have a truck wash nearby where they wash the big trucks (18 wheelers)take your parts there and tell them to use some brightener on it , it's a chemical that really cleans aluminium.it may cost you a little bit of money but that stuff really works and i haven't been able to find that stuff for private sale anywhere. the number 2 reasons for stains on the bike are : 1) waiting to long to wash the bike , some types of sand/mud especially the red dirt we have down south here will stain a bike if you leave it on the bike , not only that it dries as hard as concrete and is very difficult to remove , so was your bike ASAP. 2) washing chemicals. Some chemicals / soaps when they are left too long on aluminium will leave stains as it reacts with the aluminium , these stains are almost impossible to get out.
