SOLD: Patagonia Micropuff hooded jacket

SOLD SOLD SOLD Patagonia Micropuff hooded jacket. From their Winter 2017 range, it's a men's medium and weights in around ~250g. I can't find the name of the colour, but it's a steely blue, with a lime green trim. Not seen much action, mostly worn as a casual jacket. No rips, tears and the insulatio...

Re: Lights - is this available?

I'm wary of Exposure's reliability and things like 'reactive technology'... I IME the repairs service makes up for any issues with reliability. I've only had stuff fail through my own stupidity and they've always been very quick (and cheap) to fix issues. You might be able to steer clear of most "a...

Re: Lights - is this available?

If you go up a few models with Exposure to the smallest Strada*, it could be quite easy** to fit to the fork crown as it'll have the screwed cleat. Break the loctite on it and you've got just enough threads to attach to various mounts*** EDIT: Just realised they don't make the small Strada (600 lume...

I'd be up for frame, forks, headset and other leftover small parts. Where are you based? Could potentially take the lot and arrange split for others if that's too much hassle.

Re: Something for the coffee snobs.

Rather than open up a new thread... has anyone got an MSR Pocket Rocket 2 (or similar compact stove) and checked if it would fit inside the plunger of an AeroPress Go? To self-answer, it turns out the Pocket Rocket 2 does fit inside the plunger of an Aeropress Go with room to spare! This has been c...

The original Pocket Rocket doesn't fit, but I see on the 2 the pot supports fold differently so that might?

The Alpkit fitted easily, in its bag with enough room left over for the stirrer.

The primus, which I once thought was a small stove had no chance.
Thanks for checking :-bd

Re: Something for the coffee snobs.

I've got a Aeropress Go and I also have an original pocket rocket so I can try that when I get home. I've also got a small primus gas stove and the alpkit one so I'll test all 3. I can also measure the inside diameter of the plunger. That'd be great! I can measure internal diameter but was struggli...

Re: Salsa Warbird, 55cm

Hi Huw Is the frame classed as a medium or large. Salsas web site has a 54.5 and 56 cm frames in . Just trying to compare it to my current bike fit wise You can find geo for most previous models of Salsa in their archive pages e.g. https://salsacycles.com/bikes/archive/2017_warbird_carbon_ultegra

Re: Packable folding saw recommendations please

I asked the on another forum recently. Seemed like Silky was the arborist's choice, but a Laplander was more than suitable for regular folk. Only issue I had was finding the latter in stock, so held off ordering. Will look again when things get back to normal(ish).

Re: Salsa go SS Gravel.

The salsa website described the thinking behind it as a cheap singlespeed to use when conditions are too bad for the good bike? So £1200 for frame and fork is somewhat wide of the mark? It needed to be half or a third of that to be cheap? I like the new flat mount alternator dropouts. You've got to...

Re: BIKE LUST

4500 AUD ~ 2300 GBP at the moment, so yeah, marginally cheaper until you factor shipping/import if ordering direct.

Guess that's the price for having a carbon flute on the front of your bike...
