Rich, are you assuming these are picked up from your home? Interested in that Brompton, are you ever down further towards London?
Ben, I am occasionally down there with work, but it's a bit sporadic.

Do you need any more detailed pics or information? Give me a shout if so.

Iphone SE 64Gb - SOLD

I've bought a s/h Iphone 7 so my SE is now surplus to requirements. It's around 3 years old but holds charge well. It's a 64Gb model in black, unlocked and in mostly very good condition. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4882/39760475073_0c45c383fc_c.jpg iPhone SE 64Gb by Richard Picton - Flickr2BBcode...

Re: Garmin units and dynamo power

I think it depends on which model of Garmin you buy.
I use an Edge Explorer now (which I appreciate you're probably not likely to get), it's the first one I've had where the unit doesn't automatically shut down when the power supply is removed.
