Re: Slightly unique Sunday night puzzle!

Thanks very much for the replies. Some good ideas. Further complicated by carbon forks and seatpost. Think gorilla or anything cages are best on forks. And sling stuff under the down tube.

Slightly unique Sunday night puzzle!

Yeah I'll take one, if there's a really cheeky option to take two I'll have an extra. :)

Re: Winter Bivvy - date?

Seeing as my manager (voodoo_simon) has booked the 14th/15th off work for the both of us, I guess were both in!

Sounds good, thanks very much for the website pointer, it's really helpful.

Re: WRT Pics

That's why I went for the troll, 29er parts are not as common outside of Europe and that states. I don't have a spec yet, got some ideas but nothing fully planned. I'm learning all the way and am fairly new to cycling, just searching through other people's specs and looking at the parts that come up...

Re: WRT Pics

Hi, no fixed date yet, my surly troll frame set arrives at the end of the month so when that's built and the funds are raised. Realistically two years I guess! Is your troll going to be for your trip?

Re: So what now?

Ill give it some thought and get some long days in to see how I cope.

So what now?

This years welsh ride thing was my first bike packing event, and it was an vaguely exciting weekend!

So what's next? Can anyone recommend any other similar events? I might regret saying this but anything with maybe a bit more of a competitive element?
