    I am after the above. Not really bothered about whether it has eyelets or canti studs. Drawing a bit of a blank online so does anyone have one for sale or can they point me in the right direction?

    I really rate the Yepp seat. My boy loves it.

    Word of warning though, you will have knee clearance issues. There's a reason you mostly see these mounted on dutch bikes. It works on my old rigid MTB but I have to ride knees out. I would recommend mocking it up on the bike before building it up for real.

    Thanks for that. I think I'll go for it.

    6 years after starting this thread I'm back!

    I need to buy a laptop for my mum. Just for internet, photos, iplayer and typing.

    I'd like it to be a i3,i5,i7 running Windows 10 (ideally) with 4gb ram and any sort of hard drive really. Just want something solid that will do the above job without any bells/whistles. Around £300-400 price point.

    I'm conisdering a Dell Inspiron 15 5000 http://www.dell.com/uk/p/inspiron-15-555­8-laptop/pd?oc=cn55801&model_id=inspiron­-15-5558-laptop

    My limited knowledge of PCs bloated with big company spamware screams no but this does seem like a solid deal. Any other suggestions?

    Does anyone have any experience of sending shoes back to Loake for a touch up? I need the dainite heals replaced on my boots. That's a pretty simple job so I'd have probably taken them to my local cobbler. But now a couple of the lace hooks have come off. I'm thinking of sending them to Loake to fix that and do the reheal. Anyone done that before?

    The thinking behind Bepanthen was that it kept up the moisture levels. This stopped the tattoo drying out. People have used it for decades and it works just fine. But the non-nappy way makes sense as well.

    Isn't E45 petroleum based? I really can't recommend Aveeno enough. I've got eczema and it's been a revelation. Oats are the answer!

    I have been told to shower as normal, use normal soap and apply any fragrance free lotion few times a day. Also to ditch the cling film soon as I get home.

    This is what I have been told. My artist mate said that people are moving away from the nappy cream as it can stop the skin from breathing if too much is used. Wounds need air to heal. This method did lead to nicely healed tattoos for me, no scabs or colour fall out. But you have to be meticulous with the cream (aveeno for me) and applying it regularly.
