Re: Brompton slow Puncture saga...

So which bits haven't changed? And have you checked them?

I.e. are there any sharp edges on the rim that are causing a tiny leak in the tyre?

Weird with separately and new tubes. Sounds like someones messing with you!

Ah, don't think I need that many... :grin:

My BB t shirts are now among my favourites and get worn regularly, even though the puddle drinkin' one is so faded you can't actually read it anymore!

Re: Can we do wood burning stoves again please??

Ha, that is a chinese copy of the Emberlit! I've had my Emberlit and Bushbuddy for many years now, over 10 maybe? Back then they were the originals and were pricey. Now there are so many clones out the prices are now far more reasonable The advantage to the Emberlit style ones is you can use long st...

Re: Any interest in some new 'boo?

If you offered some colour options in the SS tee I’d order two if that helped?

Re: Can we do wood burning stoves again please??

Tim, have a look at the emberlit stoves. i heave the UL version, it’s good

I also have a bushbuddy (original wood gasification stove) and a pocket stove ti

Emberlit is small and neat, but is much easier to feed and takes heavy pots. Don’t take mine bikepacking though

two questions, probably for Rich

Re: Something for the coffee snobs.

Luxury for me is the GSI ultralight Java drip, otherwise I use kenco millicano or nestle azera

I want that magic blend of low weight, bulk and faff (to make and clean). Aero press and french press ok at home, though I still mainly drink instant because it’s so quick!
