Re: pennine bridleway, anyone ridden entire route?

Argyll trail with a few extensions & a spin over to Mull maybe?? That would be 5-600+ miles. Definitely not dull!

Re: FS - Singular Swift with Alfine11 (punting sale of bike in need of love)

I have a Swift with an alfine 11 and its ace. When I had it 3x9 it had toured in France, been across Spain with Duncan and round the Cairngorms etc. Brilliant bike. I have a set of rigid forks if anyone is interested in them to go with the OP's bike https://bearbonesbikepacking.co.uk/phpBB3/viewtopi...

Re: Bob Yak trailer - in need of TLC, £50 plus post

Is the fork for 26" or 700c? I believe it came in 2 different versions.

Plan was to enjoy the route and see all the places i hadnt seen before so no night riding. I started at 9am the 1st day then it was 7-7.30 ...

Re: SRAM mech compatability

If you have fitted a new rear cable you have clamped it in the mech correctly?! I somehow managed to get it wrong.....even tho it looked right :roll:

Re: Spokes and Nipples

The F1 is 2mm-1.7-2mm. Nice and light and makes a nice wheel. Used them to replace the cheap and nasty spokes in an Alpkit wheelset and it transformed them.

Re: Spokes and Nipples

ACI Alpina F1 get my vote. Built a few wheels with these that have taken some abuse and they've been faultless. I'm also a very average wheel builder.

Re: Synmat leakage

I had exactly this problem Colin and spent ages looking for leaks. Try inflating the mat as normal, bit of spit on the bung, stick the bung in then twist it a fraction. Works for me. I think Stu had the same problem.
