Re: What Going On With The Track Taken From The Highlands;

I’ve crossed the Strath na Sealga twice

- first time barely ankle deep
- second time last year it was above the waist

Depth depends on the amount of rainfall
Can be crossed in most states

Re: who rides Ti ?

Yes - I’ve got a Singular Pegasus MK2
Love the ride and the weight.

The Mk1’s were prone to cracking
Spoke to Sam about this and he said they had too thin a tube. These were made by Nevi

Not sure where the Mk2 frames are made but i like it a lot. :-bd

Mike.... do you have a framebag made for your Spearfish? Photos? Ta.

Creaky seatpost on today’s ride so stripped, cleaned and regreased all the bits.

Surprised me when i pulled the seatpost out the frame. I thought it was well lubed, but it had dried out

Test ride tomorrow :-bd

Blimey, GRX hasn't been out for that long and you've already got it rusty and worn :-bd 🤣 Mostly that's just the colour of the dust from the last long ride I did into The Brecks.

Loan of a saddle

Anyone got a Cambium C15 they could lend me to try out? Either carved or solid doesn’t matter
I’m using a C17 at the moment and wondered if slightly narrower would suit better
