I’ll take the Rival shifters if ZeroDarkBivi doesn’t want them.

Re: The post man's been ...

Not yet no, I’m still waiting for some stuff to arrive to finish it off.
Lovely frameset though, the finish/welding is very neat, as you would expect at the price I guess. It’s the little details that I like and the attention to said details, internal dynamo cabling for instance:).

Re: E-Bikepacking

I can entirely see how that could, in fact is an issue in terms of kids effectively “chipping” e bikes. But from a personal standpoint it would make it illegal for me to go biking once I get to the point where I can’t manage unassisted. Given the fact that I’m pretty confident that continuing to rid...

Re: E-Bikepacking

I get the worrying about 50mph uphill etc, but certainly on the flat there are probably lots of folks on here that could actually ride through town breaking the speed limit on a normal bike:) I’m at that point now where I am better on a bike than on foot, as my legs are slowly getting more and more ...

You said “perhaps” a case could be made for the disabled. I removed the word perhaps.
Maybe I should have added “surely”?

Re: E-Bikepacking

I imagine that recharging options severely limit the choice of routes unless carrying multiple battery packs/. Personally I don't think they should be legal off road . An argument could be made for those with a disability. Isn't part of the joy in bikepacking the sense of acheiment in arriving at s...

Re: Wtd: Sub 600g bag or quil

I mentioned this in another post about vat etc. I received a mesh inner from them a couple of weeks ago and there were no additional charges. It did take about 5-6 weeks to get here though if that’s a consideration.
It’s really well made and pretty light and he mailed out quickly too.

Re: Tarp and Bivi curious

For use when peeing, I have two small pieces of rubber, one for each foot. They have some grip to prevent any slipping in the dark. They are attached to my feet via an upper layer so that a "pocket" is formed which my foot can slip into. If need be, this pocket can be tightened up via a lacing mech...

Re: Tarp and Bivi curious

I just use a sheet of tyvek I bought from Stu as a groundsheet, works fine and is pretty non slip. I don’t peg it out but it would be easy to hand stitch a loop at each corner I imagine. Very cheap and effective solution to my mind.
