Re: TT bag under £50(ish): anything else to consider than a Revelate Gas Tank

Miss Grape Node has been very good for me. Sturdiest zip of any of the tt bags I've tried by a long way.

Re: Netherlands routes

No matter how many times I look at the title it reads "Neanderthals Routes".

If anyone is actually looking for those then Wotsits is probably the closest thing we have on here - he has a small brain, a thick skull, a lot of hair on the back of his hands and communicates in monosyllabic grunts.

Re: Jones loops vs drop bars

Hmmm, good question Ben. Wider mtb bars are a lot better for technical climbing, for me at least. Even on wide drops I still get a lot more of a wobble on than with, for example, Jones bars. The main riding position for me on drops is on the hoods, but off road my delicate hands take a right poundin...

Re: Down Quilts

How tall are you OP? The Cumulus aren't quite long enough if you're 6' or over. I really wish I'd got a custom one made with an extra baffle. They're a great bit of kit though.

Re: Cairngorms Loop 300 - September Group Start?

Sean's just got the big push up to Fealar Lodge then it's a relatively easy run to the end. Should be done by 4pm.

edit - actually his spot hasn't updated since 11.55am, so maybe he finished already. Well done Sean!

Re: Recording an ITT

Recording the track on a Garmin/other GPS device is the easiest way. Just turn it off overnight and back on in the morning then start recording again. Carries on recording as a single activity until you stop and save. If you're using Strava on a phone you can stop the Strava recording and as long as...

Re: A question - everyone can play.

Nah. If I'm paying for somewhere I'd rather do a B&B: Your own room, bathroom, 15" TV and mini kettle. Peaceful night's sleep and you wake up fully rested. Massive fry up with a load of brews then back out on the bike. Heaven. More often than not the people who run them tend to be great company too....

Agreed that cameras and phones are a bit too much faff.
I'd go with this, less than £60 and you get everything - paints, brushes, paper and easel. https://www.zieler.co.uk/product/a3-eas ... r-gift-set No need for a back-up battery or aeroplane mode.

Off the top of my head I've had Dirt Wizard, Nobby Nic, Ikon and Chronicles on them. I've got a 650b+ Dually that has had a few different tyres on too. Can't remember them being any harder to get the tyres on than any other rim tbh, although thinking about it Keep Pedalling put the Dirt Wizard on wh...

Re: Recommendation on 27.5 (650b) tires

HI Trev I used to run a Nobby Nic when I had a 650b bike, but I found it fragile. Just to counter this, I've run Nobby Nic as a front tyre on 29 and 27.5 for a few years and found them to be ridiculously durable. There are different weight/specs though which may well explain why Sean and I had diffe...

That stretch was a LOT easier in daylight - through at least one bit of it there was an actual path about 15m off the gps line that you just wouldn't have found in the dark. I rode it all, admittedly it was drier last year, then got to the end to find Sean whinging about it, and it seems he still ha...

Re: Any idea what this route is?

The north east end looks like Leek, or somewhere along the edge of the Peaks between there and Macclesfield.

South west end could be Rhayader/Elan Valley.

Not sure what the best way to cycle between the two would be. Might it include the Kerry Ridgeline?
