Re: Shirts for the discerning gentleman

@Steve - Vulpine may be considered gravelwanker these days, but their merino riding tops are nice. Way nicer than my BaaBaa. Got mine 2nd hand and wore it to death.

Re: Shirts for the discerning gentleman

I found a short sleeve, work type shirt from Arcteryx in a sale bin across the pond a while back. Great cut for riding in. Appreciate it doesn't compete with 1 squid bamboo on the price scales...but if you can find 'em, they're good enough to ride or go to work in. Missus says I look sharp in it and...

Re: New shelter time!

Back when I got mine, my thought was more that if I'm in the middle of nowhere and the SPOT gets used, I can be seen easily. There's been many times I've wished for the camo version though. Nice pull fella.

Re: TDR bike suitability

Used a alu Superfly...once with bouncy Fox and alu bars...once with rigid Niner RDO and carbon bars. I'll use the same setup - eggbeaters/2.1 Nano or 2.0 NineLine/SDG Belair when I make time to return. Carbon bars/fork was a good combo for me out there.

Eternally jealous of the lovely pics. Stuck at the desk this weekend having managed to get picked for on-call.

Re: Need some new wheels... what’s good?

Both my Bonty Mustangs and more recently DT Swiss Splines are centerlock. Even a three-thumbed monkey like me can't get 'em wrong. No problems in 6 years with 'em.

Re: Whats the one event you'll miss, missing out on the most this year?

WRT for me....was looking forward to quaffing a few jars with you lot before, during and after the event.
I do TNR every 2 years...was hoping to return if not to start with 'em, just to ride the route. James giving the Coq to the Germans will live on forever.

Re: BB200 - your favourite bits.

The river crossing on the 2015 episode. That could get tasty if it was another 2 foot higher and rising...nothing like the 2018 crossing early on that so many people went around, but enough of a challenge and wide enough there might be a few wet bodies come the other side.

I'll be impressed if they open the borders here by July...so it's still a slim maybe for me. At least they won't be so concerned with me bringing Welsh sheep sh!t back on my tyres and more about me running a fever (it's a hangover, Sir...I've been drinking with Boners).

My nick was yelled at me one night by a drunk...it stuck. Years later when the int0rwebs went mainstream I used it as a handle. Don't recall seeing another Scattamah in the wild.
