PushPedal Oxfordshire

I use Darren Kiley from PushPedal a lot – from servicing and fault finding to full rebuilds every time I change my mind about the frameset I’m currently using. He’s a man with a workshop, a van, and a lot of experience. He’s one of those great local businesses that you can’t help but promote whenever you can.

He’s recently had this little video made so that you can all behold is awesome beard! I mean, see what service he offers…


Replacing the back of an iPhone 4

27 Jun 2012

A few months ago, I dropped my iPhone 4 on a concrete path and shattered the glass coated back. I’ve dropped it countless times, and don’t use a case or bumper, so it was only a matter of time really.

I only discovered in the last week how simple it was to change the back though. There are 2 tiny phillips screws either side of the dock connecter port, and once those are loosened (you don’t need to unscrew them right out), you can press down on the back and slide it up about 5mm. The back then just lifts off. Probably best to turn your phone off first though.

I ordered a replacement back from ebay, and while I can’t be sure if it’s a genuine part or not, it looks good and works just fine! Doesn’t have the shabby chic aesthetic of broken glass, but a lot more comfortable in my pocket…
