Hi, if there is anyone who lives near Cambridge who could pick something up for me (a bike shaped object), could you give me a shout?

Thanks

Re: OS mapping for garmin

Does it have to be OS? OSM is pretty good and if nothing else, you can try out and if you don't like it you haven't spent anything!

Re: Bike for a “Lump of a Lad “ !!

Roscoe sounds a good shout, I think the X-Caliber is the same frame but with 29er wheels. The specialized fuse looks to be a similar bike.

Rocky Mountain Growler also looks fun if you can find somewhere to buy one.

Re: You can put a positive spin on owt.

Does breathability have to equal less warm? No reason why a breathable windproof fabric would be less warm than a non-breathable or less breathable one. I can see the angle they're using and I myself have used bin bags to produce a vapour barrier effect and thus a warm if somewhat damp micro-climat...

Re: If we close up for a bit...

The WW2 spirit comparison is an interesting one, because we're being asked to do the opposite, and it clearly doesn't play to a strength of national character in the way the 'blitz' spirit might have. The other issue with that is that it's steeped in mythology and propaganda. The general population...

The gorilla tape also comes in a version with serrated edges to make it easier to tear and that really picks up dust! It's also much harder to apply from a reel than from backing paper.
