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: Ragley Luxy bars

Best bars I've ever owned. I will happily take them to the grave. Regretted selling my original pair, then when I found another pair I snapped them up. The purchase was mostly made after your praise of them, and the feeling that everyone should try building a 26+ drop-bar singlespeed at least once ...

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...

Official advice is don't bother, you're better off with hand sanitiser.

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?
