Re: Thinking SS...

:grin:

Apologies, i should have said "isolated hell hole". :-bd

ftr I've ss'ed a couple of bikes and it's genuinely astounding just how fast you can go with the right gearing. I'm far from being strong enough to do it over any distance/elevation though. :cool:

Re: Impending SP Dynamo death (again)

I'm also in the lucky camp - I've had one since March 2015 and it's pretty much bombproof, if anything the output seems to have improved slightly with age. That was always the thing with Ford engines. Got faster and faster as time went on until they blew up. :lol: I've got a Mondeo with 170,000 on ...

Re: What suss fork for a Ramin 3+

Assuming you're running 650b then you should be fine in a non-boost Fox 32 or 34. I've run 3" 29er Dirt Wizards in them and they're fine for width.

tbf to Whitestone the Streetmap link is just to the area "North America", he wasn't detailing a specific spot for camping. If you went to that location you'd find yourself at the bottom of a big peaty hill which has a visitor's centre and car park on the other side of the reservoir so it's hardly a...

Depends on the actual route Gairy but as a rule the trails around Edale/Hope valley are some of the best-maintained in the entire Peaks. I'd be more worried about getting hit by an unruly mtb-er. :grin:

A stopwatch for timing how long it takes your stove to boil a mug of water? I've always quite fancied one of those laser watches like in the James Bond film "Goldeneye".
