Boring topic, granted, but any opinions?

Not cycleguard.

No end of issues, finally resolved with a legal threat and a phone call of apology from the MD....

They also don't insure you if you frame is left locked up and the bike is stripped of components......as happens in Bristol allot.

Use E&L. When I got hit a couple of years ago they paid for repairs before reclaiming from the driver who hit me. Including my excess.

No process particularly quick in the insurance world, but on that basis I stuck with them
What do you mean you think 64cm is a big frame?

Interestingly, I note that British Cycling insurance might not be appropriate, owing to one of their exclusion clauses:

6. Wear and tear, gradually operating causes, wet or dry rot, atmospheric or climatic conditions, frost, insect and vermin

I need to get something sorted for the new bike. All the household bikes are insured under our home and contents, but need something more specific for the Specialized.
