Re: Advice again pls

It will be 141 QR boost. So just as 142 through axle hubs are 135 quick release with different adaptors, so 148 through axle hubs are 141 qr with adaptors. If they are Sonder wheels recommend you email Sonder to see if they can do the adaptors.

Re: Exposure redeye extension

Cheers Lune Ranger. Sounds like your set up is really sorted! Mine was on a Fargo and your solution sounds excellent for ease of use. If go the charger route again I would like to try the Igaro, although they seem to change the version quite a bit, but that maybe reflects the development work effort...

Re: Bloody ‘ell ,,, Boonerang Bike !!!

#nevergiveup Well done its a brilliant experience to get one back.

A mate sent me an email in 2009. "You like old Konas what about this?" The police bumblebee auction page was to a '98 Explosif with pace proclass forks. My bike, taken in a burglery in 2001. So chuffed to get it back.

Re: Exposure redeye extension

Sorry Colin, only thing I still have is the custom mount I made for Garmin/Revo. It has the lead going into it from the Dynamo and two output leads coming out with a switch to select each one. The output leads are Revo male and B&M E-Werk female. You are welcome to it if any use? Think I'd probably ...

Re: SS query - Rohlhoff alternative?

fascinating - I can run a 32x18 which is very close to a 34x19 for off road and then a 34x16 for the road. Thank you for that brilliant idea wriggles, I'm definitely going to think about that for ages :D The sum of the teeth count of front and rear need to be the same to avoid changing the chain le...

Re: SS query - Rohlhoff alternative?

My last SS was a Singular Rooster and I ran a full dingle 32/36 on the front and 20/16 on the back because I had a tedious 10 mile flat commute to where I rode it most so ran it as 36-16 to get over there which was perfect on the bigger 29+ wheels and then switched to 32-20 for the loop round the tr...

Re: SS query - Rohlhoff alternative?

I'm gradually moving to the possibility of having a 2nd SS 700c wheelset I can use on the road for winter duties as well as hacking about in the woods. This would mean an old rear mech instead of a £60 Rohlhoff tensioner.. Are there any others that spring to mind that would allow a bit of chain len...

Re: Bike Pressure Washers

Works hydroshot +1

Good enough pressure to clean, not too much to blast bearings etc. Prefer it to the mains hose. Fantastic bit of kit. Well worth the cost. Need a wide mouth plastic water holder 10 - 20 litres.

Re: Prong > Lauf

At £700 they are comparable in cost to a medium level Rockshox SID. There is also no onward servicing costs? A basic service will cost £100 including postage if you send it off to TF Tuned or similar. I've never paid anything like £700 for a set of suspension forks and you can do a basic service at...

Re: King Alfreds Way.

When this says it’s a 220 mile off road route do the mean proper off road or just on board a cycle path ? Just wondered what their idea of off road is 😂 If dry, it runs very quick. 15 kmh+ easy to maintain. Probs more for you. If wet can be a bit claggy and slippy in places. Runs pretty close to my...

Re: The post man's been ...

Some Hope X2s for a new build on an old frame for £200. Cant afford them, but didnt like the lever feel on the Magura MT6s I was going to use and run hope on other two bikes so it keeps it simple!

Re: Front mudhuggers??

Swapped my front mudhugger out for an RRP Pro-guard. Makes the front mudhugger look puny.

The worst ever front guard is the Syncros Fox 34 bolt on front guard. Its tiny and even has cut outs to expose the stanchions :roll:

Re: Hang On, There's ADDERS In Kielder?!

See Adders all the time on the trails in Swinley forest. As Scotroutes says they come out to warm up. They really are tiny and the chances are you have ridden past or over one and not noticed as quite well camoflaged. Quite cool when you do see one actually. They are also more scared of you.
