Re: Front mudguard for a Stooge MK2

Thanks for the info everyone. I found a Fat Hugger in the garage so I’m going to try & reshape it using hot water or an air gun. Agree they’re a bit spendy for a bit of plastic.

Re: Front mudguard for a Stooge MK2

Thanks Mike. I’ll get the FRX model as I think it’s the widest they do.

Front mudguard for a Stooge MK2

Can anyone recommend the above
please. I’ve got a a 50mm rim & 3” tyre.

Mudhugger FRX looks good but they say it’ll need modification & seem unsure if it’ll work.

Cheers

Re: Wanted Synthetic insulated trousers

Yeah I really like the look of the Montane’s. I’ve got a pair of the ex army ones, they’re warm but bulky & the fit is enormous.

Re: Quick Drying Flat Pedal Shoes for the Wide of Foot - Any Recommendations?

Bought a pair of these recently, so far so good.

I signed up & got 25% off through the Adidas App.

Re: Fat wheel, Surly Rabbit hole rim

I’ve been using a Rabbit Hole & Chronicle set up tubeless without issue for a number of years.

I’m considering a Bontrager XR4 for the autumn/winter though.

Re: Tarp and Bivi curious

I like the look of the Khufu but it’ll likely work out about twice the price of the Gatewood.

Then again there’s this which looks similar and is just a little more money.

Re: Tarp and Bivi curious

I like the look of the Gatewood especially as it’s been confirmed that I’ll fit inside without too many issues.

Combined with a piece of Tyvek & a head net it looks just the job.

Thanks everyone.

Do you think a Gatewood Cape would fit me at 6 1”.

What would you recommend for a bivi with a bug net please?

Tarp and Bivi curious

I've been following the various shelter threads recently but still seem to be going around in circles. I have a Golite SL3 which I like and use from time to time. It's not too heavy relatively speaking except for the pole which weighs about 300g from memory. Appreciate I could get a carbon pole from...

Ross at straight cut made one for me. Opens & closes one handed, doesn’t wobble & has mesh on the right side for stashing wrappers etc. It’s also got a glow in the dark puller on the zip.

Re: Suggest a coffee grinding machine

I’ve got an Aergrind, it was a little expensive but expect it to last a very time. With hindsight I’d have bought aerspeed as I don’t grind for espresso. It’s particularly satisfying use & takes no time to grind for one person. Not sure I’d take it on the bike but it does fit perfectly into an aerop...
