Re: Clunky fork

Sounds like a loose headset as per PaulB2’s comment.
Try loosening the stem bolts, then tighten the stem cap until the play stops, but not so much that the forks won’t turn, then retighten the stem bolts and you should be good. If it persists then yeh, possibly the headset is humped.

pretty bad flies in the Highlands in july to Sept if there's no wind!! fortunately that's not that often.

Re: Iceland from the East to the West?

Headwinds aside, the bleak desolation is what appealed to me, its very attractive to be honest. When people say is just black and grey maybe they were just unlucky, the colours(especially the greens!) are amazing.

Re: Bargain Alert Thread

That does look like a great deal. Might even be tempted myself. Though maybe something from their range that can take a bike being strapped to it, especially if that’s an indication of the pricing.

In terms of food costs the aforementioned garage/diners were ok for pizza, burgers that kind of thing, which is where I usually ate when not away from populated areas and living on dehydrated meals. Also as has been mentioned, restaurants and bars are really expensive. Supermarkets are a little more...

Re: Iceland from the East to the West?

Given how relatively cheap it is to fly too Iceland, it might be worth doing a recon trip of something like rte26(Sprenginsandur, as ripio mentioned) or rte35, which starts at Gulfoss(more or less) and can be ridden from the airport or take a bus too. I would say planning a trip through the interior...

Re: WTD: budget bits for a secret santa budget build

Actually I’ve got a Deore chainset in a box too if that helps? Full disclosure I files the inner tabs for it to fit an ebb adapter so is basically 1x, it does have a ring on it though. If I’m posting a box I may as well go all in right:)?
