Re: Is this being unreasonable

Are they sold explicitly as 'waterproof' or water resistant, weather proof, winter, etc? Lot's of sellers describe as waterproof. Shimano go as far as saying "Built for riders without an off-season" :roll: but don't mention waterproof etc. Dryshield is described as waterproof but the boots aren't d...

How sure are you that the shoes have actually failed, and it wasn't ingress between the bottom of your trousers and the top of the shoe...? You could always fill a basin and sit the shoes in it, if they leak, then it's confirmed they've failed?

Re: Exposure redeye extension

I have a Dynamo/Revo/Redeye combination on my Amazon which works really well. I may, however, be fitting a rack for a trip later this year and the standard Redeye lead won't reach to the rear of the rack. Is there a standard extension cable for this or will I have to make one up? If the latter has ...

FS: PHD Minim 200 and Elite Racer sleeping bags

The clearout continues... Both these bags are few years old but have had relatively low use, always with a liner, and, for the most part, were used in the back of a van rather than outdoors. PHD Minim 200 - £140 - bought 2015, approx 430g, 900 fill down, PHD M1 fabric outer. Standard size (suits tho...

Re: Do you own an unsuitable bike?

The reason I asked the question is that I'm considering putting an event / ride together and the notion of riders doing it on 'unsuitable' bikes appeals to me. It doesn't appeal because I'm some sort of sadist but because I think it would be fun and maybe add to the element of dare I say - adventur...

2.4 holy rollers on a 50mm rim were a lot of fun.

Surly extra terrestrial 2.5" seem like they'd work well.

Re: I could get one made, but... steel Audax/fast tourer frame/set wanted, ~57-58

I have a set of snazzy stoppers designed by a chap named Paul that should handle 45mm guards fairly easily.

I'm regretting passing on a Pacer that was up for sale locally. Not the fanciest of frames but would have ticked enough boxes as I try and get back into audax and the like :sad:

What's the clearance like on that Roberts? Tentatively in the market for something similar, both in terms of size and intended use, but with clearance for ~32c + guards.
