Granger's spray on dwr and then tumble dry is what Goretex reccomed

The wash in stuff will also apply dwr to the inside of the jacket which can affect the effectiveness of the membranes moisture transport

Just take a plastic bottle to pee in, once ‘filled’ it can then be chucked in the bottom of the bag to keep your feet warm :lol:

Re: Similar to Exposure, but not... is there such a thing?

Another +1 for moon. Had the x-power 1800 until my bike got nicked, it was an amazing light for £70.

Parker’s had the x power 1300 on sale a couple of weeks ago so I got it as a replacement. It’s a good bit smaller and lighter than the 1800 so makes a great helmet light and is still plenty powerful.

Re: Does this bike exist?

A Google search returned this which looks to be what you're after, fox forks and deore group set. Not cheap but not ridiculously expensive either

Re: WTD - quite a few parts !!!

The shifter would be great! I already have a left hand xtr so this would be perfect

I’m going to borrow the forks from my daughters bike for the time being so could well still be looking in a couple of weeks, what forks are they?

I’ll pm you for PayPal email address for the shifter

Cheers

Due to my transition bandit getting nicked from the garage and insurance not paying out, I'm looking to get my old Ragley 26" frame built up so I can get out riding again. I've got a few bits and pieces in the spares box but I'm missing the following major items : Forks - preferably 26" around 120 -...

Re: An interesting idea

Loads of walkers/climbers use bikes to get them further into the wilderness so they can spend more time climbing so this would likely appeal to them more than your traditional “bikepacker”

Re: RockShox Pike RC

Third dibs !

I don’t mind what specification they are, just need something cheap as my bike got nicked out of the garage last weekend and I’m trying to get parts together to build something up to get me back out :sad:

Re: Chainring Spacer Question.

Did you move the spacers on the bottom bracket? This will also shift the position of the chain ring (I forgot when first moved to 1 x )

Re: Dropper post mounts.

I use the enduro collar you get with reverbs and then just use electrical tape to protect the part of the post above the collar (where the strap from the bag sits)

Not sure if enduro collars fit other brands of posts but you can get them on eBay for about five quid.

Re: Hikeabike / portage strategy

This is the thing to strap using an existing pack - you would need to be careful of the crank position to avoid a pedal/face incident when turning your head.
