Re: Wtd: on one fleegle bar

Thanks for the offer - it’s the 15 deg sweep (or close to it) I’m after so the jones is bit too much. Is the alpkit the one that looked like a standard riser with a towel rail on the front? If it is I think they are 9 deg sweep (but please point out if I’m talking out my arse!). The silver fleegle c...

Re: The (fat) cat sat (slept) on the....?

I’ve had quite a few sleeping mats including the exped ul lw. Have used it through the winter with no issues. It’s big enough your arms don’t fall off the sides and your pillow doesn’t go wandering in the night. Not the smallest but definitely my most comfortable sleep out doors option.

Wtd: on one fleegle bar

Trying to find the right sweep bar as wrists not been getting on with my current set up and think a need a little less sweep - about 15 deg.

So has anyone got an on one fleegle handlebar black 31.8 that’s surplus to requirements?

Gah, all this SS talk is making me miss my El Mar. Alternator drop outs were great

Maybe I'll get an EBB SS steel bike again one day. It was great for local stuff

Re: Mounting an Etrex

I modified the cable tie one by shaving the mount flat then attaching a exposure light shoe. Works really well, I did post a picture of it on here I think.

Re: My rim keeps blowing

I blew a 2.35 ikon of a stans crest fitting it (scared the crap out of me). I was using an airshot, so well over 25psi but still not something I’d ever had before. Maybe yours did the same at lower psi as tyre was new so the bead was all creased up from being folded up.Mine went at a much higher psi...

Re: WTD 10Spd Thumbshifter

I’ve got a 10speed micro shift. Right hand only - but designed to work with older 9speed mountain/ 10speed rroad pull ratios. I ran it 10speed with 9speed xt mech. Won’t work with 10speed clutch mechs though so let me know it’s any good and if so we can work something out.

Re: A bit of bivvy related input required.

What if the hanging loop was a long ish length of cord- loop on one end, passes through eyelet in net, cord lock on inside.
So you attach the loop, get in then ‘hoist’ the net by sliding the cord lock up.
Not tried it, but it works well in my head.....

Re: Laminating printed maps

Another vote for toughprint paper.
I got round the limitation of the a4 sheets by shrinking the map before printing - 1:50,000 seems more forgiving of being shrunk. I did this in memory map. You can also print them double sided.

Re: What gear options?

You could pick up one of the cx front mechs which work with smaller diameter rings and road sti.

I use 10speed 105 sti with a slx double chainset with 42/28 rings, a cx70 front mech, 9 speed xt rear mech and 11-36 cassette. Works great.
