Re: The (almost, kindof) perfect down/synthetic jacket and spork/fork?

My insulated jacket of choice for many years has been the Montane Prism. Currently I also have an Endura Flipjack (also synthetic) which is working out well. What problem did you have with your current spork? I reckon they're all much the same, though the folding one I have is a bit short for eatin...

Re: Don't try this at home kids ...

Sounds like a load of rubbish TBH. Our Guy (Martin) actually had a bike/frame modified by Rourke (I think that's who he went to) and a specific drivetrain to actually pedal at the higher speeds. Then when they let go of the truck he was slipstreaming he actually pedalled to gain the record. Maybe it...
