Re: What's your current dream bike?

Like some said earlier, I am reducing the number of bikes currently.

The dream bike thing comes to me wondering if I should just have one bike. If I did, it would likely be a Ti Chumba Sendero. Since we are in dreamland, it would have some sort of 3 speed hub that doesnt exist :grin:

Re: Anyone made a dropper-specific bag yet?

Apidura. But it's not very good. At least mine wasn't.

I now use a revelate terrapin. But add a piece of inner tube taped round the post. I lose about 70 to 75mm of drop.

Re: FS:OT: Vango poled sun canopy

Kador strip yep. It's attached.

You can get magnetic ones, where you need the two sided fig 8. And has long straps that throw over the van.

Or you can get an aluminium 1 sided 'female' ones that fit to the roof rail bolts. I had this, it was good.
