The cable may not be completely broken, but it sounds like a few strands are broken inside the shifter. You should probably take it to the shop and hope they can fish out the cable without leaving...

I have a Cricut and it does a great job of cutting vinyl decals and paint masks. I'd be happy to cut some for you, if you have a file. If it's an available font, I can do it without a file.

I've found that a lot of hangers don't have a long enough b-screw shelf. Modern wide range cassettes make that problem worse. As the b-screw is extended, it rotates the derailleur around the...

The cups should only be connected by a plastic sleeve with some o-rings holding it together. There is no reason why you can't just keep turning the drive side and pull it out.

I have the ability and equipment to repair that, but given the value of the frame, I would just leave it alone and ride it. If it cracks in the future, I would repair it at that point. Just think...

The White Industries G30 crankset will work with that frame and get you the gearing you want. Otherwise, I think you may be stuck with an MTB crankset. SRAM makes a few 2x MTB cranksets with 42/28...
