Re: Carbon handlebar thumb rest (Like a TOGS) £9

Ben took me 30 seconds each ESI grip to remove last night and about the same to refit. To remove - remove end cap, place foot on side of stem - pull grip with both hands worth of finger tips on inner end of grip. To re-fit - slide ESI grip back on using 3 cable ties between grip and bar. Pull cable ...

Re: a dislike of bikepacking luggage. anyone else?

Polaris style :-bd add sleeping bag in rolled up closed cell foam sleep mat on rear rack for full points.

Think, use what ever works for you Tony. No wrong answer. Im ok with frame bags, but has taken a bit of perseverance to get them right.

You won't be, I will have a Little Richard Doll strapped to the bike. You will get to see the route at sub warp speed for a change.
Hang on? You didnt accidentally drop it around the time Richard G had his off did you? :shock:

Re: Wheel Building in Sussex Hampshire

If Jim willing, that would seem the obvious choice. Otherwise I learned using the wheelpro book by Roger Musson. Takes you through it step by step. I bought a tension meter because I really am tone deaf so cant tell tension by pitch when pinged.

Re: Tour Divide 2019

Looks like Sofiane has had an issue trying to get over the pass above Brush Mountain Lodge. Navigation in snow in the dark? His tracker shows he missed the path and is now retreating back.

Re: Spokes and Nipples

I have used Alpina from Cyclebasket for a while. Seem to work well and are the cheapest I have found. Cheaper than DT Swiss from Rose bikes, which was who I also used in the past

A lot to go yet, Josh has a lot of knowledge of the southern part of the route. As for bored, not something I experienced until the last 50 miles. Thinking the same about Josh Kato, but Sophiane is so tough. Edit; 4 miles between them as Sophiane arrrives at Brush Mountain Lodge. Blimey! Ughhh the ...
