Re: TD Kit Grid

Might sound a little nitpicky and I suppose there is 2 of you so less need... But I always add 3 long reusable zipties. When stopping at places where I might have to leave the bike further than arms length, I just interconnect the ties and fasten the bike to summat. Just enough that if someone did t...

Re: FS: Rolling clearout (16.5L Ortlieb seatpost pack added)

Ortlieb welded seatpost bag. 16.5L. Only seeling cos hoping to save for a full frame bag on the road bike and potentially a smaller seatpost pack in time.

Tis a nice bag and been well loved (in a loving kind of way)...

Re: Large Saddle Pack

So my old trusty saddle pack from that guy that used to hand-make them in Poland, has finally fallen apart enough that I need to replace it. I'm looking for something that is a bag, not a dry bag holster. Preferably large say 14 litre-ish that can be rolled down smaller if required. Suggestions? I ...

Re: Whats a minimal hydrostatic head

Maybe higher density in winter so particles more tightly packed and don't 'fluid' through the pores of the material? :geek: Wouldn't that then mean that you'd need a lower HH in winter. Oh yes... it must've got twisted somewhere getting to my brain from the phone... the investigation continues :-bd

The minimum uk standard changes depending upon the season, think it was 1.5k for summer and 3 for winter
Odd, is water somehow wetter in winter? :wink:
