Re: Like a lanshan 1 but cheaper?

there is no mention of an outer and it comes in one bag and its says the material is mesh
I think that is inner only from the description

Its pretty hard to be certain and if i was buying i would ask them first

Re: selling all and getting a cheating bike.

to achieve something I could otherwise do manually currently feels wrong and I think I'd miss that. I agree but none of us are riding away form the ageing process. The question then becomes which is better not doing them or doing them with an ebike? I am confident I will be picking the ebike option...

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

I have see sense lights that seem to the same - not sure what " alert you to stuff behind means in the marketing blurb]

TBH its just like a normal light once you put it on - does it make me more visible no idea as i dont follow myself to know - they were free though

Re: The 2022 Tour Divide watchers thread.

I heard a rumour you can ride bikes through mud - though not american ones with their tiny rear tyre clearances [ i learnt that the hard way]
So now not only does the " race" route change every year they dont all even ride the same route - a rather odd " race" by any standard

Re: Hit me with your Bivy Stick

No different from a phone or MP3 or some such and I assume most either
1. use a dynamo

weather and conditions are in the lap of the gods but the course should at least be the same route or its a bit pointless to have a record for a course that is not the same route[ or distance or elevation]
