Re: Veneto Trail can anyone help and feel free to tag along!

Sorry, maybe is should call Rich out So directly? If the choice was to do a big adventure in the UK, that would be a best of luck enjoy. I think it’s the (to me) seemingly unnecessary travel. Though I do have to admit that I’m being a bit hypocritical as we (Helen & I) went to Canada early March bef...

Re: S*dding bearings

I learnt this one the hard way at work.... My new rule. Measuring bearing then order off size. Not the code on the seal :-bd Being an engineer I should really have known better l-) Though I do find the mis-numbered seals a bit weird as that numbered seal doesn't fit between the two races, it's too ...

S*dding bearings

A mini poorly conducted rant.... Trashed the front wheel bearings on the road bike during last Beercycle Club BAM (Brewery-a-Month) ride, which was done in rather damp conditions amid storm Dennis. Only having ridden it recently whilst hidding inside on Zwift, thought I'd replace the bearings in the...

Re: What you done t' your bike today

Figured an extra 10mm would be ok, when cruising I tend to sit the palm of my hands further forward on the top of the bars - think I’d be better of with a longer top tube in the long run. Had the bars for ages but have been hesitant to put them on as having swapped from 30deg OG bars to the 16deg SQ...

Re: What you done t' your bike today

It seems the last time rode my singlespeed was back in Jan, when the Reba’s collapsed on my last bivi. In the meantime some rigid forks and a front wheel turned up, so had a sunny afternoon in the garden swapping stuff over. Off - Reba’s, SQ Lab 311 bars, 90x10deg stem, Stan’s Flow & Nobby Nic On - ...

Re: Garmin Edge 530 External Battery Pack

Haven’t got too far on it so far, have been trying to get some stuff done around the house.

Going to explore it a bit more now, working out the pinout for the connection could be the stumbling block at the mo!?

Re: Garmin Edge 530 External Battery Pack

This one’s got me thinking.... I have a 530, CAD software, a 3D printer (turning up this week) and time to spare while furloughed. Now does anyone know the pin outs on the back of the 530 and how these need to relate to a USB connector? I guessing the central pin is a common connector, with the surr...

Re: The story behind your BB name (and whats your usual form of address)

Seemed to grown up in a era of Tim's so school friends decided (probably over beers before Friday afternoon Physics)that I'd become Timoth. This evolved into Moff which gave me a cool name (I was never cool) to go to uni with, where every yacht I raced on seemed to have another Tim on board so Moff ...

Re: Bivvy a month 2020.

BAM 1/1 - 2020 is a go. Gave myself a challenge of a start, which meant I had to haul myself off the sofa and out the nice warm house. In doing so I left a nice deposit of grit and mud in the hallway from loading the bike up, but got out the door at 10pm for the 19km up to the woods between Farley M...

Re: Alpkit Kloke bivvy bag

I got bored with waiting for the Kloke to come into stock, so ended up getting a Borah Gear one. It a touch lighter, was roughly the same price even after paying the import duty. It's only water resistant, but I'll mostly be using it with a tarp and it did a good job during a wet night on Dartmoor w...

GPX Route v Track

When plotting out routes I'm never sure whether to save it out as a Route or a Track.
I'll be transferring them to a Garmin Edge 530 if that makes a difference?

Sorry, know it been covered on here before btI can't find it and my Google-Fu is lacking today.
