    Any suggestions for a feature phone that can run WhatsApp? I want to detox but need WhatsApp for work. I’ve found the Nokia 8110 but i hate the sliding design.

    Any tips?

    Unfortunately he zoomed off before I could get deets. No cctv that I could make out either. So annoying. But not unusual....

    Oh. And it was completely his fault. Me riding along straight road past Transit. He pulls out from behind it. I hit him side on. Says he didn’t see me because it’s raining.

    Thanks all for your replies. Really helpful. Motorcyclist made off before I could get details (only after I had to lift his bike off him mind) so I’ve no idea who he was. Grrr.

    Hard to photograph but the frame looks fine from a distance, but the bubbling is quite pronounced on close inspection both under the top and down tubes, and paint has also flaked on the top of the down tube slightly.

    Everything else seems ok - a bit of scuffing here and there. I’m amazed it wasn’t more serious tbh because I did a full somersault with the bike before it hit the road!

    I got hit hard, head-on by a motorbike last week. Mid-air somersault, helmet cracked in two from landing directly on it, rib broken. Nice.

    Was riding my lovely Skinny light tourer, which is a steel frame built by apprentices at Enigma.

    To cut a long story short, I’ve got bubbling in the downtube and top tube (see pics). Not terrible but clearly damaged.

    Is it worth repairing? I love the frame but it’s not hugely valuable.

    Thanks for any advice.
