Re: How far north can you get ont' train?

When I did my jogle on the dummy I flew into wick from Birmingham airport with a change at Edinburgh, half the cost of the train, my dummy was sent with a courier and arrived at my guesthouse an hour after me :-bd

Hey Guys,
I am going to swerve this one, sorry but I reckon it's going to be horrific out there! I went out last weekend and it took me nearly an hour to go 300M of the worst sticky mud.

Re: money belt

Get something like a Revolut card, there's a few choices so pick one that suits. Foreign exchange is done at the "bank rate" (I think that's what it's called), so the rate the banks get for currency exchange, not the rate you get as a consumer. Use it as a cash point and/or payment card, the exchan...

Re: I think I can. Can I?

Diodes are cheap as chips, actually a lot cheaper, can’t see why they should increase the cost by any great amount. Diodes act as one way valves, if you were to connect one to an AC supply it would flash at the Hz of the AC, the wave form of the output would look like a typical AC output with one ha...

If it helps the OP I’ve just tried my micro redeye Connected to the support cell via the support cell charger adaptor, works a treat :-bd To be honest by the time you’re sourced the cables and adapter you may be better off getting another rear light, if you have a joystick that would run it I think.

Re: I think I can. Can I?

You May have hit the nail on the head there, perhaps the revo uses the led’s as a simple half wave rectifier? Hence poor performance.

Re: I think I can. Can I?

LED’s work with dc Is that true of all led Steve? If so, the the Revo must feature internal diodes to covert the dynamo output. I believe so, if you reverse the battery polarity to a LED it won’t light as current can only flow one way, it’s possible that pairs of led’s are bridged but in reversed p...

Re: I think I can. Can I?

LED’s work with dc as they are as the name implies a type of diode. I would imagine it would be fine with a typical power bank if you can find a connector, an exposure usb charging lead and barrel-barrel adapter as used to charge the exposure support cells might work. I’d ping exposure an email just...

I would avoid the Grand Union as it's a puncture fest.
There are a lot of hawthorn twigs, I regularly pull thorns and twigs out, the towpaths were one of the reasons I went tubeless, I think my record was around 12 punctures in one ride
So yeah, avoid if not running tubeless.
