Yes. Send a memory stick with some films on to my folks and it still hasn’t arrived. Stuff posted at the same time got there 5 days ago.

Re: Big Clearout.

Thanks for getting back quick Rich.
I’m going to pass cheers - I’m really after a lunar solo and have realised this is just the tarp not the serenity net as well.
Thanks

Hello - interested in the Deschute Tarp - how tall are you? Wondering if my feet will touch the inner on an air mat at 6’1”

Re: WTD Hope XC front hub 15mm adapters

Is it possible? I inherited a pair of wheels with an old Hope XC and thought they were qr only - I would be very happy to be wrong (and even more so if you find a source of 15mm end caps :lol: )

Re: Another Bar tape Q

Something else to consider - If you’re just getting the hang of wrapping bars the stuff with the strip of gel on the back is much more forgiving as you can undo it and keep trying until your happy with it. The adhesive stuff does not like being reused so much.

Edit - beaten to it by Dyffers!

Re: Feckin Lezyne Pumps

I bought an Airace Mini Veloce after my Lezyne did the same thing to me and forced me to walk half my commute to get home a few years ago. The Airace has a little hose with a thumb lock to attach to the valve so you get the best of both worlds. My Google.fu is failing me, where did you get that fro...

Trp hy rd owners?

Picked up a used set of trp hyrd callipers a while back and they’ve sat on the bench for while waiting to try them (I know there was quite a lot of scepticism in a previous thread but don’t want to drag that out again). Anyway cleaned them up, fitted some new pads and stuck one on the front of the b...

Re: Good winter (baggy) cycling pants: any thoughts

What about these - halfway between tights and trousers. Not flappy and very quick to dry.
I didn’t pay full price for mine, but wear them lots when it’s cold.

Re: Mechanical Hydraulic Brakes...

They seem surprisingly heavy Remember Al, you're not comparing the weight against a normal caliper but an entire brake inc master cylinder and hose. True, but I was going to replace a trp spyre, so it’s all extra at the end of the day. Probably won’t notice it once it’s on the bike either way - it ...

Re: Mechanical Hydraulic Brakes...

The trp hy/rd I just bought off zippy have turned up.
They seem surprisingly heavy. I think I will fit the front one and give it a whirl, but I’m feeling less convinced following this thread.
Might be an opportunity for someone else to try them soon in the classifieds!
