Re: Ready steady.....

Ha the wild camping nonsense! Just go do your thing and pitch your tent or bivy. Seems you get more agro on social media talking about it than u do actually doing it! Rode past Culra bothy at the weekend and it was like tent city. Haven't you just proved the point of the current guidance / rules wi...

Re: Wildcamping toxic?

I hadn't realised "wild camping" was such a thing and it was such a big deal. Hey ho :| Name stuff though all a bit "woke" isn't it?

Re: How to glue this, to this?

Velcro strip. Half stuck to bag, t'other stuck to frame. Allows a bit of flexibility and means you don't always have a shriveled scrotum of a TT bag in your sight line. Plus, when the zip goes, it'll require less drastic measures to replace.

Re: Pillows

Think mine is a Sea2Summit one. Has improved my sleep muchos.

I've spent too many nights sliding off silnylon stuff sacks and Bob's note about ropes had me shuddering from memories. Think the only reason I managed to sleep on a rope in those days was with the aid of a lot of cheap french red.

Magura Julie disc brakes (free*)

These are the budget end plastic brakes (from a Cotic Roadrat).

Calipers and levers only, no brackets or discs. Also need new hoses as I had to cut the rear to get it off.

Free to a good home for the price of postage.

Re: Do I need an Exposure (6 pack Race or Diablo)

I have lots of good lights. I bought a Diabolo. I have found the compactness very convincing, convenient etc. I almost always ride with a Duabolo and/or joystick now. Stu's right about need. I've not got one but I think the 6 pack would be too big and negate the light and compact advantages of the s...

WANTED - 29" plus-size tyre - 2.6 to 3.0" wide

Going to try something plus-sized on the front of a Singular Gryphon. Wheel will be a Hope Fortus35. Ideally looking for something at the lighter / faster / less aggressive end of the scale. Apparently the Mk1 forks will take a 3" (clearance between the fork legs looks to be about 95mm) though if gi...

Re: Hammock set-ups

You typically need a tarp, hammock, top quilt and under quilt. There are various ways of frigging this and all sorts of semi-expensive gear as and when the urge takes. If you just wanted to try it a cheap gathered end hammock will start you off. Any old tarp will do as cover, though a ridge line (5 ...

Only issue is no mounts on forks. Seems to be a few Singular frames knocking about, or you can do similar with the ...
