Re: New Bike Gear Out And Due Out...

I raced on the green Mud clincher last cx season. Very good in cx-style mud. Easy tubeless set up, they've still all the air in since the last race and bike's use in January. Wear quickly though. Going Vittoria Terreno Wet next. Pretty much identical tread, bit more hard wearing

Re: Anyone ridden the Reiver Raid route? Any good?

I did most of it in a day. It wont occupy a fairly experienced mountain biker - large parts are on road, off road is mostly tame (although memory hazy about that) and did it on the 33mm CX bke. Parts seemed convoluted doubling back for little benefit. Suggest doing the South West and then staying ou...

Re: The Acepac luggage I mentioned.

16ltr dry bag and saddle harness arrived today. Bag is cavernous, as large as any other saddle pack I have (aipidura, lumo, podsacs, alpkit). A very wide mouth for shoving stuff in. Thick material, heavy weight. There is a slight, very fine weave on the outside - I wonder if this will hold dirt more...

There is no equivalent clause in the Scottish regulations or associated guidance. I'm wrestling with myself over what I can/n't do currently, reading the regs and guidance for a steer. We dont have that reg but we do have: Restrictions on movement 5.—(1) Except to the extent that a defence would be...

Does anyone know how to get a kmz file onto a garmin that doesn't involve me launching it at...

Re: The Sandstone (No) Way

I did it a few years ago. The Strava title was:
Death by a thousand gates.

Open a gate through cattle-churned ground. While doing so, looking at the farmers field you'll have to plow though and another gate at the other end of the field. And repeat

I bought this last summer but afraid i've not actually tried it yet. LanShan 1 https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000303876219.html But it cost £66, partly due to a site-wide sale that Ali regularly have. It has a few ties and lines that are chunky and could be replaced with lighter lines. And I recal...
