Re: What are you listening to now?

I'm having an orchestral thing at the minute. So today it'll be mostly Rachmaninoff with a smattering of Morricone.

EDIT. Having watched "WuTang: of mics and men", recently, I'll probably put 36 chambers on at some point.

Re: No expense spared kit wish list

For the first time, im pretty much done. I've got what I need. The only thing I might consider is an upgrade to my sleeping bag.

Re: Wales open

I cannot wait. Lockdown has meant I've managed to get out for more day rides than usual but not being able to strap the gear to the bike and "do it properly" for over nighters has been very frustrating.

The question is, where first? Reckon the Clwyds are winning so far.

Re: Bar tape recommendations

I've used the Evans own brand FWE tape on my Arkose and some Lizard Skins DSP tape on my MTB. I like both, but i felt the DSP went on smoother and has a tackier feel.
When I retape the Arkose I'll probably switch over.

Re: Vbrake blocks

Cheers Stu.

I was looking at the Clarkes triple compound blocks. God knows if they're good or not, but the reviews would suggest they're not rubbish.

Vbrake blocks

Hi there.

I'm not familiar with vbrakes, are the brake blocks pretty much universal? Or are they brand / model specific?

Thanks

Re: WTD: Budget bike, to fit 5'4"

Thanks for getting in touch, I do appreciate it. But that would be a bit over budget, and I've now managed to pick up a mint GT Agressor locally at a really good price.

So, all sorted now. Thanks

Re: New jerseys - orders are now open.

The last jersey order I went with 2XL for my 46” chest, if anything it’s slightly too big, the fit is more like a MTB top, I’m thinking close? For the next order? Thats weird. I went XL for my 44" chest and it nearly cut me in half. Hence gone 2XL this time. I figure if it doesn't fit, I'll get mos...

Re: New jerseys - orders are now open.

stu, do you have one in hand? Can you compare sizing to the old style "bear" Jersey?
An XL in the old format turned me to sausages but my Altura XL fits lovely, so just trying to gauge. Thanks
