Re: lanyard for a Garmin

19mm x 19mm - 99p for 2

Or just a bit of 1.5mm cord, blob of strong glue and use that as a small loop to attach to.

Re: Todays ride

A quick ride to Lauvvik on Høgsfjorden (Norway) over the mountains, with a good mix of gravel roads, empty paved roads and a bit of single track for added variety. You do not get many days like this in Norway, but when they do come, its magical. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/32713395277_4ee7b4...

Loads of space in the rear but forks are very close with the 40c? the book MAX is 700X38c. For anyone interested in this frame, its a beautiful ride - I...

Re: Nano 2.1 - how grippy?

The Nano's did not work for me in winter in south wales, far to easy to spin out on climbs on "unmade" trails i.e. anything that was not a track of some description. We have a different type of clay soil down here - sticky - and fills the treads way too readily IMHO. On a track/trail they were OK - ...

Re: Prescription cycling glasses for the older and very short sighted

hello Yes I went down the prescription route - you cant get "wrap around" style cycling glasses (normal or "sun") with anything over around -2 (IIRC) which, obviously rules us out. But you end up with wraparound style cycling glasses, with flat-ish lenses behind the outer wraparound lens...like the ...
