Re: SPOT Tracker Renewal Fees - Being Gouged?

It’s not possible to suspend it. You can cancel with no refund or they have offered a free extension if three months as that is how long I asked to suspend it for. I guess that’s better than nothing.

Be surprised if the government doesn't end up forcing their hand. It's just a matter of time.
Sweden seems to be taking a very relaxed attitude to the outbreak and most are carrying on as normal.

Re: Cabin Fever 2020

BA have now cancelled the outbound flight and of course offer a voucher. To actually get your money back you have to get hold of them which is pretty much impossible these days. I certainly don't want a voucher as it could be worthless if they go under in six months as pointed out by RG. Of course t...

Re: Cabin Fever 2020

Sadly in light of the current climate, I'm not going to be attending this year. It's still on according to the organisers, if you are brave enough to go. I'm now just waiting for BA to cancel the flights so I can get a refund rather than me canceling it and getting a voucher as we will be taking any...

Re: Restrap Adventure Race Range

Restrap tends to deign very good kit and yes it well before release. I used to sell it at one time and never had single problem from any customer that bought it. I still use the bar and saddle harness and they are both still as good as the day I got them.

I do have one of the garden sprayer types but it doesn’t put out much Pressure. I had seen the sub £30 eBays ones and was wondering it they were worth a punt.

Re: Bike Pressure Washers

Which Hydroshot do you guys have as there seem to be serval models and even the manufacture doesn't have a comparison table?

The portable Karcher OC3 looks quite good. I have a big Karcher at home that's 15 years old and it still works perfectly.

Do I want a Geared Hub?

What are the pro's and cons of a geared hub over a standard derailer based system? What ones to look at and what ones to avoid?

I'm getting fed up with the state of my bike in the winter, with dirt and wear and I am wondering if a geared hub might be better

Cheers

I've ordered one off of ebay as the amazon one won't let me buy it. It will come in hand on non dydmao bikes when you can't recharge a power bank.

I also think the SRAM 11 speed is all compatible, drop and flat bar.

As a singlespeeder I find the SEAN MTB shifter somewhat offensive :lol:

SRAM Rival 1 Mech with Sean mtb shifter

Does anybody know if you can use a Sram Rival 1 rear mech 1x11 with the seam mtb flat bar shifters 1x11? I have a spare rival 1 rear mech and cassette I would like to use in a mtb and 1x11 shifters are quite cheap on eBay.
