Re: Myog anything cage

Cheers.

I didn't have any stainless counter sunk bolts but that will be a good idea. I suspect round heads would be better than square heads.

Myog anything cage

Fancied getting an anything cage for occasional use but put off by the price. A bit of rooting round the garage and found some 8 mm aluminium tube and 6 mm plate. A couple of happy hours with a pipe bender, hacksaw, file and drill and I've got this. Solid and perfect for a tarp on my stooge fork. ht...

Re: Alpine Bike

Gairy, Eddie was talking just this week of a trip out to ride your trails and now we're all full sussed i'm very tempted. I have a cotic flare max in large and i think you would get a half frame bag in above the shock. I am very impressed it rides very nicely. i have no full sus experience to say it...

Re: Retro

Never had a Saunders, but I do have a Phoenix Phreeranger EB which was my 18th birthday present. I still think it's an vaguely exciting tent (my wife doesn't), it's last outing was a garden camping trip for the kids at the in-laws farm.

Re: info req on gps watches

I have a TomTom runner 2. it's good at tracking and nice having HR, although people question the accuracy of optical HR. Battery life is good. something like 10 hours in tracking mode, a week easily in activity monitoring mode. BUT I would not buy another TomTom and wouldn't recommend you do, the bl...

Re: Tuscany Trail 2017

Hi Gairy, I'm Eddie's friend Mike. No I'm not riding, although i did have a funny and confusing conversation with eddie about it last night. I'd love to ride it but no way i could get a pass out for it at the moment.

Re: Appetite for another alt- bar

so I guess Stu's not interested! ;-)

I've looked at the stooge moto - they're very wide. I don't want to go that far, also they have lots of rise and only 17deg sweep.

my thinking is I want a slightly wider bend 2 but with more sweep.

Appetite for another alt- bar

I'm going to post this here first to gauge a little bit of interest, I hope this doesn't upset anyone, it's not an advert more research. Would there be any interest in another alt bar with these attributes: wider than (the widest) jones and salsa bend 2, but with a sweep angle somewhere in-between. ...

Dunk090 - your condition sounds exactly like mine.
