Re: Minimal use mobile phone 'upgrade' advice sought by confused person

I'm with EE Here's their explanation: https://ee.co.uk/help/help-new/getting-started-and-upgrading/using-your-phone-features/how-do-i-use-wifi-calling It looks as though as well as having a phone that can do it, you need a contract that will let you. Thanks again tc for your helpful suggestions and...

Re: Minimal use mobile phone 'upgrade' advice sought by confused person

If you were happy with the Nokia, just get a Nokia smart phone that supports wifi calling. Nokia, 3, 5, 8 and some of the Lumia models support it. You also have to have a service that supports it. EE do & offer some advice on their website. https://ee.co.uk/help/help-new/getting-started-and-upg...

Minimal use mobile phone 'upgrade' advice sought by confused person

Advice sought about ‘upgrading’ from an old Nokia 6303 phone with an EE SIM only monthly bill. I hardly ever use the thing, other than as a means of telling the time, an alarm clock, the odd txt. and a possible emergency communication device when out and about. It never costs me more than £3 a month...

Soon to be 8 :shock:

A lightly used brown B17 Imperial should be with me soon, courtesy of gelvis OTP

The thing is, bikes don't look right without saddles and it's good to have a spare + they must have shiny silver chrome rails 8)

Brooks B17 Standard width?

Brooks' website states their B17 Standard saddles are 175mm wide.

I wonder why all 7 of mine, ranging from 1992 to present day, including normal, titanium and Imperial, measure 170mm at their widest part?

Re: Stainless Steel water bottles

I've had no problem opening and closing the KK rubber spigot with my teeth. Though I have yet to solve the "rattling cage" problem. The small 532mm KK bottles I have rarely rattle in pain old alu Blackburn cages. But the taller insulated KK bottle* did :twisted: So purchased some 5mm inte...

Re: Stainless Steel water bottles

Resurrecting a moderately old thread. I also ordered and returned two of the 800ml Klean Kanteen bottles. I loved the bottles, but the top was a huge frickin' fail. There's a carry hoop in the way and - much more importantly, since the hoop could sawn off - the rubber spigot in the top takes a grea...

Re: Merino wool why so special

And yes, you must make sure your house is a moth-free zone! I have a selection of merino jerseys from Jura and Oregoncyclewear and three have suffered from moths :( How best to prevent the blighters? The jerseys from Jura and Oregon are by far the most comfortable garments I've ever cycled in :D

Re: Moulton TSR rear pivot

BTW If you disconnect the rubber buffer and work the suspension up and down while you use the grease gun, it will be easier to purge the grease through. cheers As the rubber suspension cone/buffer is only held in place by self tappers - one wouldn't want to habitually remove and refit these though :(
