Re: Backcounty 3000 bivy: thoughts?

I think I was looking at the regular Hunka (~330g claimed). Out of complete work boredom I weighed the long version of the 3000 and it comes in at 474g with bag and tags, claimed to be 440g without, which seems ambitious.

Re: Backcounty 3000 bivy: thoughts?

I have one but haven't even opened the envelope it came in, let alone spend the night in it. Seemed to make sense at the time and nothing else was available, but might send it back given nothing's really gone to plan this year. Made in China if you're still boycotting them. If you're not, it's not r...

Re: Why Did I Sell My Stooge Bars Again? WTD

Soma Dream are the same style and rise, but with a touch more sweep. 25 instead of 17 IIRC. Shame they've gone from £40 to £75+ recently. I have a couple of sets and they're very comfortable.

Re: Dynamo Light of choice - fork mounted gravel use mid range

I had the seatpost mounted Son for a little while. Sold it on and am using the mudguard mounted Secula after riding behind a friend with one. Seems brighter and to throw more light out, but maybe that's just the positioning. Feel more confident with the Secula now anyway.

I've seen a few similar wheelsets go for ~200, so say 100 for rims and tyres? Guess postage might be a tenner on top of that. Looks like I should have a bit of time to clean them up on Saturday and will get some photos.

Re: FS: 29+ wheelset - Hope Pro 2 Evo/Rabbit Hole/Dirt Wizard

Just an observation - if these wheels still fit one of your bikes (or, indeed, some of the components do) consider hanging onto them for a while. The components shortages we're now experiencing are likely to get worse for a while and you might regret not having workable spares in your garage. Don't...

Re: More things that fly than usual?

Encountered swarms of flying ants up the top of Shutlingsloe (edge of the Peaks) yesterday. Usually busy, especially when the sun's out. Can see why no one was sticking around though. You could see them swarming and there was a constant mosquito-esque drone round the trig.

I picked up a Widefoot Litre cage from Keep Pedalling the other day. Klean Kanteen goes in easily but seems fairly secure.

Re: Wtd stooge frame

There is/was an MK3 on eBay recently. Was a full bike but you might do ok parting it out if the bits are in reasonable condition given that no one can buy new bike stuff at the moment.

Re: Could someone check me their Rear freehub Hope Pro weight..

If it's silver, it's steel. 160g is about right. The alloy ones are gold and weigh in around 80g.
