Re: Stupid ideas you can't shake.

Mine is a very simple idea I cant shake, I have a spare 29er rear wheel with a acr45 rim and i keep debating getting hold of a 29 plus front wheel with same or wider rim to try on the ramin plus bike, 29 2.4 rear and 29 3.0 front but it's an expensive test if it doesn't work

Re: Packing up a tent with your bag and mat

Re: Packing up a tent with your bag and mat

No I have a sweet roll and if I roll the full tent, bag and mat it will squash in the double end bag but if I pack the tent in it the bag is a bigger diameter than the tent so it has space around it but it's kind of unusable space if you get me, I might try shoving bits in one by one but I'll still ...

Re: Packing up a tent with your bag and mat

Yeah that was a worry, I'd thought of wrapping the inner up with the tyvek first then the outer but like you say it could force moisture through, back to the drawing board, I had it all figured then lol full sleep system in one bag, doh....

Re: Paramo Ostro and Ostro light - experiences?

I'm not certain I light the light outer tbh the velez adventure is a lot tougher but then again heavier and probably warmer still
But for ventilation the quito actually looks hard to beat tbh though does lack pockets
I just find the light outer a worry :(

Re: Paramo Ostro and Ostro light - experiences?

I have the ostro windproof it's very good for running in. It does wet out after a while but as its windproof you keep warm and you dry off between rain, I've used it in a number of ultras and really rate it for running, so much so that if I enter an event where I need a taped seams jacket I take bot...

Re: Something for the coffee snobs.

Porlex arrived, very nice coffee , incredibly clean I may have to try a metal filter as I'm used to a bit of residue from my machine and I believe they let a bit more stuff through it
