Re: New Bike Gear Out And Due Out...

I've realised that I think I might be dead. I've just looked back through this thread and virtually nothing looks interesting or seems appealing. Now, I'm not saying that's actually the case, hence my concern that I might indeed be dead. Anyone else or just me? You're getting a puppy. WGAF about th...

Re: Similar to Exposure, but not... is there such a thing?

Would the dedicated Exposure lanyard fit? I dont know the race model.

Failing that some string or, if you want fancy, dyneema cord (spliced for that no-knot look).

Tried it after I saw it mentioned. Seemed to work. Some challenges to keep it in place.

Re: Cheapest/lightest option to add warmth

My experience is similar to Bridget and Stu's. "Lightweight" bivi's like the Ti Goat Kestrel (though it's a bit small so lofting can be restricted - bad) and Borah Gear (gynormus) can add surprising warmth given, in themselves, they are not what you might think of as "insulated". Plus they are a rel...

Re: FS - gravel bars - genetic / whyte / on one

Dont want any bars but my personal favourites are Ritchey Venture max XL.

Stupid expensive and a bit rare in uk (at least when I was looking a few months ago) but working great for me.

Aye that was mum and dad. She'll be a big girl but soft as a brush. She has her last injection on Monday, so I'll go and collect her next weekend and the fun can begin.

Re: Yay, it's cheery Friday.

Not quite such a cheery Friday as I wait for a plumber to come and sort a boiler leak that was discovered this morning. Oh the hilarious irony that after cleaning up, fiddling, probably wrecking it and making the leak worse in the process, that Amazon sent me this notification for the vac I ordered....

Re: Black Friday deals

I'm usually an XL in most stuff due to chest and arms (sadly also a bit due to gut nowadays :wink: ). All my Outdry jackets are size Large. If in doubt I would size down. The range is a bit confusing (IMO) and not always well described (so difficult to tell the difference between various jackets). H...

Re: Similar to Exposure, but not... is there such a thing?

Get the Toro. I don't have one but want one, just as a step up from my Diabolo. Wouldn't running the two together be a bit of overkill?? Or would you need sunglasses at night :cool: Possibly. I had wondered about it as a bar&helmet set-up/ TBF the Diabolo is doing fine and there's no need for a Tor...

because you want to ride it on the road sometimes, and dont have the luxury of a roadbike.
Or

Because you want to.

Though more sensibly, possibly, because it's the bike you've got.

Re: Build thread: 'lotsa' expense spared super-commuter: Boardman SLS 9.8

But if it isn't there, and something comes loose, then you are screwed (or rather not) to tighten it all up again? Possibly. There are some "field" alternatives if you really needed to re-load the bearings. How many times has that happened to you or people you know though? I would imagine rarely. I...

Re: Build thread: 'lotsa' expense spared super-commuter: Boardman SLS 9.8

So, is the suggestion that if you took off the top cap on a bike, then rescrewed the bolt back in firmly, that the top cap is actually completely superfluous to the functioning of the whole headset set up? Top cap is just there to preload the bearings. Once that's done and the stem is tightened it'...

Re: Build thread: 'lotsa' expense spared super-commuter: Boardman SLS 9.8

I think that's a carbon steerer bung (rather than a SFN). The top cap bolt will thread into it.
