Re: OT: Rich People in Space

It’s a shameful waste of money and resources. Quite frankly I think space tourism should be banned before it starts. It’s bad enough that people feel entitled to fly wherever and whenever they like, now the 1% want to piss about in low earth orbit. The whole thing is f’ing awful X_X Yeah very much ...

Re: Bear kills cyclist in the US

Oh and reading up thread about not having a chance against a Mountain Lion. In the last 100 years there have been a total of 125 attacks, 27 of which were fatal, documented in North America. So minuscule numbers and another example of media hype.

Re: Bear kills cyclist in the US

I was lucky to tour the Great Divide in 2016. I nearly bailed the first night due to bear-fear. I have had plenty of wildlife encounters in the past. eg Lions outside my tent and Elephants 50 metres away in Africa. This was completely different. I cant explain it. A totally irrational fear. I was lu...

Re: Wanted 30mm 29er wheels

Wiggle have WTB i29 rims silly cheap if you have the hubs mate. They actually come up at 580gms each which is ok for an eyleted rim for £23

Re: 27.5+ wheels for my Big Bro

I believe Halo wheels are rebranded Kinlin rims and Novatec hubs. Hunt are rebranded Kinlin rims and Novatec hubs, but hand built and backed up by excellent customer service, so cost a bit more FWIW I have some Halo hubs and my experience of their customer service and tech support was excellent.

Re: Converting an old Ti HT to a gravelwanger

Looks good that. Do gravel bikes have to use drop bars? You could ride it as is, or put on some bendy bars like Jones or Ritchey Kyotes for different hand positions, and then ride it for a while to see how you get on with it?
