Jones like Ti bars. R1G 21 Tarp, Delorme InReach SE

Titanium Jones look alike bars, but a bit shallower. I bought these off Ian a while back but have now replaced them with a different bar. 710mm wide 31.8 clamp £120 posted https://i.imgur.com/ZYB02Wk.jpg https://i.imgur.com/mt5uPMI.jpg Alpkit R1G 21 tarp used a handful of times in excellent order £7...

Nice old bike on ebay

Not my listing, but this would have been one of the earliest custom MTBs in the UK?

That was my first MTB. Biopace, thumbies and a U Brake out back.

Bits on ebay for that era are not cheap anymore.

Re: BB woes giant toughroad slr gx3 2018

Is the chainset the stock FSA Vero Pro?

If so maybe it has been over tightened and the hole in the crank is splayed?

Re: Old legs need Lower gears.

Another option would be swapping out the chainset for a GRX which would give you a 30 inner ring.

Re: Condensation

On the subject of Dyneema, I've always liked the look of the DCF TeekkerTent Phreeranger , but it's not much lighter than a SMD, and it looks like airflow would be an issue. I had an OG Phreeranger and I recall on a few nights in high winds it blew flat on me. Having said that, I don't recall conde...

Re: Condensation

When we've been on trips sharing a Vango Helium in the past we'd carry a flannel size microfibre towel to mop up condensation.

Even when the tent has felt super wet inside, you'd not fill an espresso cup with the wringings out.

Re: Help needed with (retro) custom framebag

I'd run a shorter bottle on the R. That space above the current bottle I would say would be of little use.

Though on a commuter I would keep the framebag for tools tubes and an emergency waterproof or gilet. Such an awkward space is a pain to pack and unpack on a daily basis.

WTD: 29" Shimano 135mm 10sp disc Wheeeeel and a cassette

If anyone has a 29" 700c 135 spaced disc wheel that will take a 2" tyre and a 10 speed cassette I'm after one.

Also a 11-36 cassette.

Thankyou!
