Re: Etrex Stem Mount

Been following this as I don't have much space on my bars I seem to have found a simple, free solution, so far good for a few hundred off road miles I used a countersink drill bit on the square hole that would retain the rubber seat, so that the star fangled screw sits down nice and flush. Dispensed...

Re: USB-powered AA battery charger

Think you can run the Garmin directly from a USB cable from a Powerbank

Need to select Garmin mode instead of USB / Storage

Maybe just Etrex30

I will await either confirmation from the forum, or to be corrected.

Early E Bike

Saw this on the local Gumtree

Probably solid testimony to many happy hours in the shed !

Not sure of the handling - but think the SA on the front wheel is an interesting take

Terra Nova Laser Large 1 Tent (like Starlite 2).

This is a high quality lightweight tent in very good condition - fairly sure it was made in Derbyshire. I bought it new a few years ago for backpacking with my partner, and used it overnight for just a few weekend trips before storing it indoors. It was always used with a homemade protector under th...

Re: OS Mapping now on cycle.travel

I really like their site and use it quite a lot. It's a shame that you have to pay when I already have an OS subscription. I tend to create routes in their site and export to OS for editing I don't want to put anyone off, I am sure it is free. If you register (for free) you get some extra features....

OS Mapping now on cycle.travel

This maybe of interest https://cycle.travel/news/cycle_travel_now_has_ordnance_survey_maps I believe that cycle.travel uses a more sophisticated algorithm than Google maps etc to identify quiet roads. Maybe not as useful for off-road routing, but my go-to for getting between two places on tarmac.
