Re: Blue Lake - an end of an era

I'm sorry. And I dont usually use bad language. But... Tossers! Reminds me of what the state of advanced base camp is described as (in the book The Death Zone). Its literally full of sub standard and a nasty mess with worn out tents and O2 bottles and whatnot littering everything. Someone needs to p...

Re: 550 Sweepstake

I'm not a betting person (religious reasons) so.. Nor do I understand what's a sweepstake :-bd

Re: Wahoo elmnt ROAM -at intervals - review

Just to throw on some stats whilst its still fresh in the head... Firstly, it was a road ride but from looking on the map it seems Wahoo have put in some serious details and you could even see some of the walkway bridges over some massive roundabouts near/over the A64. So well done (again :wink: ). ...

Re: What you done t' your bike today

So. Managed to swap the front tire without much fuss and it pumped up instantly. 2.6 inch actual measured and an extra 150g over the Maxxid Minion but that should bring more peace of mind.... Chopped rront hydraulic brake hose and managed to get it on without bleeding. At the end the lever felt a bi...

Maxxis Minion DHF WT tyre (27.5 × 2.5)

Before I put in the rainy day cupboard/box/loft/messy shed I thought I should give someone else a chance. One ride old (or maybe 2 but I'm pretty sure it was just the one) which was the MTL... Treads still look new. Measure up closer to a 2.4 on my 35mm internal rims. Has 2 thorns (one very tiny and...

Silnylon or Silpoly

Is there any real advantages or disadvantage of one over the other https://i.imgur.com/QFU6tIK.jpg Does one sag more than other or does the heavier material last longer/stay more waterproof etc etc etc...

Anyone got any suggestions of some decently sheltered/non exposed areas for a quick bivy along this road route ( I'm happy going of the track and walking/riding a bit off route in retunr for a nice private sunrise in the morning and away from traffic).
