    I've got a relitively cheap samsung galaxy mini that I use for knocking about,
    It's on '3' and I do a £15.00 p.m. package that gives me unlimited internet for 30 days+(300 talktime/3000 texts).mk.

    This sounds like my young daughter talking :D, I don't know what she is talking about either, :D

    I have a very cheap mobi which sits in my glove compartment, gets knocked about, its on hand, and I do that on PAYG for £0 pence p.m. and it gives me no nasty shocks, but I cant make it do speedo

    i bought one of those but took it back, there's no where to put the bit with the phillips screw in it. Because that bit is designed for bicycle spokes, and both sides are usually magnetic

    Yes.....absolutely agree.......

    but would have been nice if it could have been fitted, which it could have been with a bit of messing around but too many other things to do

    like ride the bike :)

    Yes this is what I meant, the bit with the Phillips screw in was the magnetic bit, which could have been cut down and affixed to the rim, and so on and so on

    easier to find something a bit more adapt :)

    The problem which came to mind with sticking the magnet to the rim was the inherent upsetting of the wheel balance
