Re: Tubeless sealant

If you're concerned whether its dried up or not, just remove tire and give it a good ol shake. If you can't hear sealant shuffling about then time to add some more: check tire for thorns... if there's loads stuck in there then you know thats where its leaked from... So dismantle and remove thorns, a...

Re: Suggest a drybag that'll fit me this

In the distant mists of time some people just used a plastic bag for stuff. They still make them and they still work, though of course they don't scream "FANATICALLY ORGANISED BIKE PACKER" quite as loudly. :wink: and :cool: I think you my friend, are onto summat. Might try n weld one together out o...

Re: Suggest a drybag that'll fit me this

Another one for "just cram it in". It's down so will mould around whatever's already in the bag avoiding wasted space - useful for padding around (non-sharp) solid objects. Having everything in its own bag wastes space - drop a load of tennis balls in a box and you'll see that there's loads of spac...

Thanks people... I was hoping to try and get something a bit more compact and cylindrical so it can sit independently of the othrr sleep system so can be pulled out easier before bedtime. Also being cyclinder shaped I could stuff it into frame bag without too much issue but seem as though all the 2L...

https://i.imgur.com/ud427mh.jpg Its my Rab Microlight down jacket. Fits into its own pocket but remains super bulky.

Some cheese, well any fatty food, eaten about 30-60mins before you go to bed. I'd always be taking some form of insulating mat to a bothy.

Revelate handlebar Harness

Its an older version . Doesn't have a logo as such but from use (and the fact its fits the front pouch perfectly and the colours match up) its obviously a Revelate. Doesn't really budge an inch. Pictures upon request. Not totally convinced I should be selling it so gonna call it £49 but feel free to...
