FS Garmin 650 with UK 1:50K maps -

I upgraded a while back to an Explore 2 so this has been sat in the drawer.
It comes with a Garmin 1:50K UK card.
A couple of tiny marks on the screen.

Re: Folding Bikes - Experiences..

I've been looking for one of these for ages. A Reisse and Muller Birdy. A full suspension folder. Today I drove a long way to pick it up. Needs new tyres, otherwise in amazing condition considering it is over 20 years old.

DCF MLD Duomid and winter inner.

I have for sale my DCF Mountain Laurel Designs Duomid along with an Ali Express solo winter inner. They are elasticated together so that they both pitch as one. No pole or pegs, but all the guylines are included. No faults Selling as I've just bought a freestanding tent for my winter trips. £350 inc...

I can't help thinking, as someone who has not done it, that the run in from Fort William to Bridge of Orchy is a real sting in the tail after the distance already ridden, especially if you fall into that mental black hole of thinking 'almost there' :shock: The section from Devil's staircase to Tynd...

Re: The post man's been ...

After looking in vain for a Hilleberg within budget I came across the Kuiu Storm Star. It makes for a tight pitch with its X-Pac reinforcement even though I know this has already been used for a few nights. 200 grams heavier than a Soulo but lots more room and two doors. https://i.imgur.com/PIhXQAV....

I had a gatewood and yes, I agree it would be a worthwhile experiment.

MYOG Duomid A frame

I've been frustrated by the central pole in my Duomid so today I put together an A frame which seems as if it will do the trick. Alpkit do a 170mm pole (Vertex), so I started with two of those. I took the knobs of the tops of the poles so that the pole would fit into a sleeve. Though I left the inte...
