Re: map subscriptions

If I had a 1.5mx1.5m computer screen that might be different :grin:
43 inch 4k monitor is pretty much there - I love it in general, but going full screen when planning routes is a real "Boom!" moment!

A new buzzrack eazzy3 bike rack, to replace the Thule 9503, which has finally bitten the dust after 10 years of sterling service.

Will be setting it up tomorrow, prior to doing the usual Saturday chores

Chesterfield. (Nearly) as far from the seaside as you can get.

Re: Another cable compression solution.

Thanks for your ideas on here. I have used the accessory bar from SJS Cycles to mount my Wildcat Lion harness. - I am delighted with the results - It doesn't squash the cables and it leaves all the hand placements available. I had 2 x 25mm spacers and just swapped out the bottom spacer for the acce...

Re: Any interest in some new 'boo?

Having been very impressed with my large grey t-shirt, from the last batch, I'd be up for another one.

Probably in one of the blue shades, and maybe with a different phrase (although the existing one is fine)

Re: Another cable compression solution.

Wow thread resurrection, bit confused by the problem though as it’s possible to set the wildcat lion up to leave a cable gap :wink: Not necessarily - it depends on the brake levers, hose exit angles and headtube size. Wildcat harness fits fine to my Merlin Malt, with no hose issues. My Trek marlin ...

Thanks - will do some measuring, later.

That is between the upper and lower bolts, which mount the faceplate to the stem, isn't it? (Should have been more specific)

Re: Making a mini BB200 (green) custom BPing bag

Belugabob, I did indeed make it inside out but upon educated guesstimates, I gathered that doing the back section inside out would render me with an inside out bag as it was starting to become rather stiff to turn it the right way round... It can be a bit on the stiff side, but usually possible - d...

Re: Making a mini BB200 (green) custom BPing bag

Next time you make one - and there will be a next time - here's a tip... It looks like the rear panel was the last one added, and that this was stitched from the outside, revealing the seams. If you assemble the whole thing - including the last panel - inside out, then you can turn it right way out ...

Re: Veloviewer map - explorer tiles

Currently at 17x17 and a cluster of 569 - but got some routes already planned, to extend this somewhat.
There are a couple of tiles which are going to require some imagination, but that's part of the appeal, in my opinion

Interesting, as I could do with acdrybag of particular proportions.
Couldn't find anything specific about custom drybags on their 'custom bikepacking kit' page - do I just need to drop them a line?

Re: Groupsets

As of 15 minutes ago, I can confirm that 50/34 and 11-40T works with a Shimano R8000 rear mech. I needed to fit a longer chain - 118 links. That's on a chainstay length of 445mm. Cross-chaining to the max works with no rubbing. The rear mech isn't too stretched at 50:40 and still has some tension l...
