Re: OT What is one of them called?

A rivet nut ("Rivnut") and a length of sleeve or threaded tube would do the same thing if you can't find a sex bolt.

Re: BB7 setup with Speed Dial levers

Agree with everything lune ranger said there, recently done the exact same switch to Juintech too.

I have had a BB7 caliper fall apart on me during a ride though, while under braking going down a very steep hill. Which was nice.

Haven't put them on bars yet, but the 55s are HUGE.

45s look the business though. Really good surface texture too. Miles better than ESI.

Re: Trail HTs with lots of mounts for bikepacking

Not everyone is as capable a rider as you Gian :wink: edit to say "vs" is probably the wrong way of phrasing it in my post, but there are bikes that are clearly aimed for different bits of the Venn diagram covering those three variables. If you find one in the sweet spot for you then happy days :-bd

Re: Trail HTs with lots of mounts for bikepacking

Same here - bottle cage is mounted to the bike and that's it. Everything else is strapped/bodged as required. If you're buying a bike for bikepacking I'd be much more interested in finding something with the right geometry - comfort vs how much climbing are you likely to be doing vs how much will yo...

I've also got an actual irl ride today - taking the full sus out for some rooty, slippy tech around Goyt Valley. Will probably be an utter disaster but it's a lovely sunny day for it. Hoping there's an ice cream van at the car park.

Have a great Friday Boners! :-bd

Re: Strictly Local

I drew up a lap of (modern) Lancashire last year after Shaf asked whether it could be done. https://www.strava.com/routes/2711956438649107050 Would be nice to give that a go once all this is over.

Re: 27.5 plus? Where are you?

Nobby Nic on the front, Rekon on the back is a very good combo for grip/rolling.

Got Minion DHF front, N Nic rear on my FS atm and that's also quality, albeit for a very different application.

Re: Whats been your favourite-est forks ever?

My favourites are easily Lauf btw. Absolute game changer. I'd have invested in some but... they look a simple enough design which I'm not sure warrant the £1200 pricetag (shirley)... Maybe if they were closer to £600 and went used for £400 or something. I bought my first pair second hand for £350. ...

Currently, I have some 2021 SID selects in 120mm. Light, stiff, work really well, half the price of fox.
Best I've had all round.
Are they 29er boost by any chance Dave? Interested in the clearance between the stanchions if so. :geek:

Re: Future plans.....??

I thought the term 'staycation' meant to spend your nights at home but to travel from home to somewhere else each day. This. It now appears to simply mean going on holiday within the country you live. Utter bollocks. Utterly insensitive of the fact that many people can't afford to take holidays abr...
