Re: What are you listening to now?

Been listening to quite a lot of Warren Zevon lately, WIllie Nelson, same as In Reverse some early Depeche Mode (saw them live in 1984/5?), Pearl Jam's new album, caught up on Blues Kitchen podcasts...strong chance I am going for either Terrorvision or Shed Seven in a minute

Re: When?????

So does that mean July 3rd wild camping is ok (Scotland)? No travel restrictions and no shared facilities I can't see why not.

Though it's a farce with other stuff I see going on anyway...

Re: wtd: 27.5 plus tires (2.8")

Outback is for the country gent! I have a Forester, that's for the farmers...though mine is the 2.5 turbo, 07, £550 tax I think (I try not to look)

Finally managed to get my self levelling headlamp warning light to go off this week so pleased with myself :lol:

" aint they lovely.. I wasn't planning to collect via car"

Yeah apart from the car tax rate which is frankly eye watering!


Rekon weighs 935g on my scales so probably too heavy

Shaf was saying you may be selling the forks?

Re: wtd: 27.5 plus tires (2.8")

I have a 2.8 rekon but 1. I'd have to weigh it 2. I don't like to condone people running non matching tyre brands 3. Of all the places on a bike the front tyre is the last place I'd try and save weight over function, besides a nice big gyroscope on the front can be a good thing 4. Since I think we b...

Re: Retro 1x bodgery

Have a wolf tooth ring on my cx and it was even more than the Middleburn!

Also run an 11-40 sunrace on that and it works fine just made this 11-42 out of bits

I do have an 11-46 9 speed cassette but the mech did not have the range to make it work

Retro 1x bodgery

Had a bit of a gearing revamp on the Inbred mullet Because - my front rings (old 5 bolt compact) where pretty worn the front mech has always been a mud magnet I just like the simplicity of 1x on my other bike and I was probably a bit bored and like to tinker Middleburn direct mount 32 NW (they call ...

Middleburn (BETD) do a direct mount 32t narrow wide which looks nice and neat, just put one on my Inbred

Sunrace expander, I had to dremel a little inside to get it to sit on my hanger

Re: GBDURO goes from self-supported to self-sufficient

I'll just point out that the position is different in Scotland where the Government is taking a slightly slower approach. A number of cyclists travelling the length of the UK and turning up in some of the local communities will attract the wrong sort of attention. Exactly, I guess we'd need to be i...

Re: If we close up for a bit...

I don’t see anything in the Scottish guidance from 28th requiring a return home at night? So camping ok so long as it’s fairly local and part of your exercise?

Got some lightly used wtb nanos in 700x40c that I'm unlikely to use again. They're non tubeless and I've no idea whether you could set them up tubeless regardless with a bit of perseverance and know how. Any good?
Which ones are they exactly? Are they the folding Race ones?

Re: Hebridean Way

There are ponies up the wee road past Loch Druidibeag on South Uist too. If you are doing the whole archipelago then one transport option is to hire a bike taxi service from Ullapool to Oban (or Ullapool to Inverness to catch a train). This was part of my job for a while... Is that the road to the ...
