Re: SPOT Tracker Renewal Fees - Being Gouged?

I've just emailed them to ask for clarification as the notification I had from them last week advised my renewal would be EUR 199.98 but the yearly plan on the website is EUR 143.40 which is quite a difference. I advised them I have yet to decide if I'm continuing with my subscription so we'll see ...

Fiberfix kevlar emergency spokes

I have heard Bob mention carrying one, but has anybody actually ever used one? Lots of reviews on the web, but nobody seems to have used one. They seem like a great idea. I have only broken one spoke in all the year I have been riding and I guess this would have been a good idea to have had.

Re: Powerbank tip

I assume its because the batteries cannot cope with both outputs in use at the higher rating so you get one of each. Guessing though Properly true on the cheaper ones. The Good brands like Zendure tend to have two high output 2.4a sockets. Still if it supports passthrough like they do, you do tend ...

Why is there a 1A port if it is so lame?
I guess some devices only consume low power? you would think just make all ports high output and let the device draw what it needs?

I carry Sudacrem in an old film roll pot.
We use some old makeup pots of Cath's, they are about 1/3rd the size of a film roll pot.
Jen gets all her stuff refilled so if I nicked a pot I would be in trouble !

Carrying Cham Cream

Rather than carry a massive pot, I made some sachets using our vacuum sealer. It's a pretty thick film so hopefully when I stop to use them the cream with still be in the sachet and not all over the inside of my bags! I've also made up some bags to keep my sweet snack separate from my savoury snacks...

Re: Super slow exposure 6pack Mk10 charging?

Go into the mode selection, pick another mode and then retry. Changing mode is the exposure equiv of re-boot they told me.

Worth a try.

Super fancy brand new Swissstop pads, which never made it on to the FMS as I only got them last week. I swear the dog must be hiding things to screw about with me.
UPDATE, the pads have been found, both packets were inside a bike helmet. Can't blame that one on the dog I guess!

Powerbank tip

If you have a powerbank that has two or more different outputs, here is a tip. I put a piece of duct tap across the 1A port so that I will only plug devices into the higher 2.1A port. My lights won't charge on the 1A Port and the phone's charging is much slower on 1A, as it want's lots of power. The...
