    Can anyone reccomend a good email app to use with my HTC one mini? The standard app is useless because you can't see any emails that are older than a few days. I tried the Yahoo mail one (I have a yahoo mail account which seemed like a great idea 7 years ago) and it worked ok but a bug meant it rinsed 3GB of my data allowance in a couple of days.

    What I really mean is does anyone have a link to one that doesn't cost 3 times what I paid for my dodgy eBay knock off?

    Do you have a link to a replacement battery? I managed to lose mine a while ago.

    Any particular reason you don't want to use acetone? it'd almost certainly do the job and only costs a couple of quid if you ask for it behind the counter at boots.

    What's the advantage of compressionless housing and how does it work? I've never used it.

    That's a good point! I hadn't thought of that and I don't have any cleats I'm afraid.

    It doesn't seem like a terrible idea but I guess the majority of people who would know about the service would be relatively keen cyclists who probably know better than to go out without the equipment to repair a puncture etc. Is there a similar service that charges per pickup? Could be useful for people that very occasionally go out for a Sunday ride with the kids etc but don't really know what they're doing if something goes wrong.

    If you want to try out the shimanos I've got a pair with some cosmetic scratches but in good working condition you could have for cheap. message me if you're interested at all!

    The trouble is that the cost of the paint job to mielec is much less than the cost to Murphy's Law would be. I don't think it's unreasonable to expect at least a decent amount of that cost covered if he actually intends to get it repainted. I do think it looks cool as it is though!

    It's because it's designed to be 700x700, unfortunately if you start messing with geo putting different sized wheels in it ends up looking like the gross thing on the last page. Did you have your heart set on steel? If not, look at the mielec thread on here. They'll build you anything you want out of aluminium for peanuts.
