NW Slovenia Route Options

I'm looking at a few days (up to 5ish) this summer in Slovenia and have started stitching together some GPX from various sites, but I'm worried it's all looking a bit road-based: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Ah2OrKn-3xdtF6gg2cGKaAHWENjEJV90&usp=sharing Anyone got any route options around this a...

Fitting a Wildcat Lion

Hi all, I've got a wildcat lion for my bar roll, but not sure I'm fitting it right as it gradually rotates/slides down,especially on rougher ground, so the bag ends up rubbing on the tyre, and I have to stop to hoist, reposition and tighten everything... I did have the instructions somewhere to doub...

Re: FS Croix de Fer

Is this still for sale?

Couple of questions:

Where is it?
How tall are you? (6'4" would be ok for a 60cm frame I think?)
Can I see some photos?
