I started with a road compact on my Camino and had same experience as stu - hardly ever used the big ring. Now got an slx double with 42 / 28 and 11 36 cassette. Using 10speed 105sti, a 9speed Xt tear mech and a cx series front one which copes well with the smaller chainrings. Ive had it like this f...

Wtd: 100mm 29er fork

(Apologies for littering the forum trying to post this in the right place!)

I have a 120mm Reba which I’m thinking of dropping the travel on. But before I go through the hassle, does anyone have a 100mm 29er fork with a longish tapered steerer surplus to requirements?

Re: FS: down trousers

So I’m a medium in most things and 32” in most trousers.
They fit round the waist ok, but a bit too snug in the thigh for the down to loft when i sit down and a bit short in the leg. I did toy with keeping them as I’ll only ever wear them in a tent / bothy.

On one il pompino I rode to work every day for years. First and only fixed wheel I’ve owned.

Re: Winter Bivi ,Salop,peaks or anywhere

The chip shop is decent. I’m doing the salop sludger during the day, but will try and track you down afterwards. Can offer some easy bivi options if you don’t want to travel far form the pub: we’ve got a little patch of woodland with a fire ring your welcome to to use and there is a barn if the weat...

Re: Winter Bivi ,Salop,peaks or anywhere

Beer in the tuns is a bit ropy these days - I would be looking to the castle, the vaults or the six bells.
Castle has its own bike wash and very nice food.

Re: Winter Bivi ,Salop,peaks or anywhere

Something to throw into the mix - on the Saturday the Salop Sludger starts in BC from the six bells. It’s a mountain bike treasure hunt - you get some of the grid refs and the rest you find along the way by solving clues. I did it last year and it was a right laugh. https://p.facebook.com/events/583...

Re: FS: Bit Of A Clear Out..... Inbred, carbon forks, ss wheels...

I would be interested in the nuke proof forks please if you could measure the steerer and the a to c for me please.

Are they the ones with the massive yellow ‘nuke proof’ decal down the legs?
