Re: Interesting for those with a mechanical mind - contains bikes.

The sound of Spinergy wheels failing. Not something I ever want to relive.

technicaly you were beaten by a girl with one gear, not no gears,
Surely its Ok to describe a SS as a bike with no gears?
I agree she has one gear but she does not have gearS
Three gears:
Sitting. Standing. Reverse.

Old track joke.

I think I may have found a colour film emulsion I actually like.

Re: Wanted - Nordisk Lofoten 1 or 2

You may be for a while.

FYI, those in the MM community I run with have had issues with theirs - the poles have not been the best in the last run. A bit too light for cack handed pitching.

Sad also about the young racer. She didn't need to mention the name, anyone who's following the race will know who it is, I didn't realise they also had a film crew.
Agreed.

As per TD - ITT it. It's the only way I intend to return to it.

Re: Tour Divide 2019

Interesting post on theradvist from Rue. About the why of Laels scratch.

FWIW, I'm impressed at her not mentioning the name of the young male rider who took kit from his film/support crew.

Sad to hear TBH.

"still got Boners top"... must be getting a bit aromatic by now with all his amazing exploits... unless he's sporting a BBB bamboo T underneath as well :smile:
One top, not baselayer, did me just fine for the trip. You get used to how you smell pretty quick.

Re: Ortlieb frame bag - Genesis longitude

Note, the zip is on the wrong side when you lay your bike down. Despite it being pointed out at the design phase, and before they remade the second lot.

A lot to go yet, Josh has a lot of knowledge of the southern part of the route.

As for bored, not something I experienced until the last 50 miles.

I gave up being vegetarian on the TDR, just ate what I could find. Made it easier.
