Re: Can We Have A Nationwide Post Lockdown Group Bivi Ride?

That's the original I think. There have been other variations since.

Re: Can We Have A Nationwide Post Lockdown Group Bivi Ride?

I'm hoping to do the Virtual Winter event in the next couple of weeks. Trails are looking better - in particular, the ice has gone.

A central weekilend thing sounds grand. The OS have Dunsop Bridge as the place but I guess someone local could come up with a suitable route for riding and socialising.

Re: Cafe lock recommendation please

I have a very similar version to this. Must be an older model. I have two in fact. Plus some keyed versions like a knog one. Forgot the key when I took them out so stick with the combination version https://www.wiggle.co.uk/abus-combiflex-2501-cable-lock?lang=en&curr=GBP&dest=1&sku=102065552&kpid=1...

A big thank you to Mr Lazarus of this parish for his sterling work promoting Joe's shop at every opportunity. If you see the chance to link to one of Joe's products in a forum site somewhere (who knew the London Fixed Gear and Single Speed forum existed?!! Who knew?!!) then it would be massively ap...

Re: Todays ride

A road/gravel trip down to Feshie and back. Water levels are back to normal and the tracks are drying out nicely.

Still found some snow to play in.

Re: Straightening A Silwing Ridgeline?

I'm paying very close attention to this thread. I bought a Silwing from GregMay last year (out of curiosity) but didn't do any more than pitch it in the garden. I'm trying to decide whether to keep that or the Alpkit R!g 7 I've also not used 😅

Re: Today's Run

10.85km in 58 mins. But as it's mostly downhill should I use feet or metres? :lol:

Quite surprised really as I thought I was burst after my big(for me) walk on Tuesday.

Re: Shimano Stock Levels

This is going to be an issue throughout 2021. Even the largest bike brands are struggling to get components. I usually have a small stock of consumables so I've been topping that up whenever I see availability / a bargain. I've a couple of larger bits still to buy (like a spare rear mech) but hope t...

Yeah - it's a long (but very direct) drop down to Loch Einich :-)

It's an appropriately-named peak.

Is it possible that the frame was damaged before the mech problem - and in fact caused the latter?

Re: Veloviewer map - explorer tiles

Has anybody else noticed this on VV? On the map screen a small camera icon has appeared in the top right corner..... If you do an update and dab the check for new segments button, VV imports all the pics (or at least a URL thumbnail) from Strava so you can view them in VV. If you select the VV map ...

More VeloViewer squares today. I was planning the walk last night and it came to 22km which I thought was a bit much given I've not done high/long for a while. Got it down to 17km but it was nice today I actually went further than planned and ended up with 24km. Crampons & ice axe wielded for the f...

Stu, I really don’t know why you’re trying to ‘spot the difference’ here.
I assumed that this introspection was caused by writing a book. That's got to tease out a few whys and wherefores, not least in determining the target audience/market.

Cheap lycra shorts for use on the turbo.

And a set of Raceface chainrings for the fatbike. Not required immediately but I'm building a stock of parts on account of current and predicted shortages.

With regards to Santa Cruz, they may be expensive but their warranty support is outstanding. That's as a previous owner and as someone who has worked in the bike trade.
