Re: Restrap route planning competition

I guess the Restrap competition is only for Uk submissions, anyway here's my contribution, 3,164m up and exactly 80km, 100% ridable and doable on a Gravel bike, I'm not a fan of taking my bike for a push. https://www.wikiloc.com/mountain-biking-trails/mont-caro-80km-3-100m-climb-48275497 This is th...

Re: Restrap route planning competition

I'm not sure but... Seems like there is competition potential here from the site itself, no?? Is it of the opinion that this (if it was a local BB competition) route should/could just be made for now and ridden later post 'troubles' situation... Or is it a comp where they wnckurage riders to go rid...

LOL. That's just one we've already talked about. If there is no requirement for it to loop back home then I could play around with it.
Go wild Colin. I said a linear route is ok purely to enable me to plot a rout withe more than 1000m of ascent :lol:

edit - does this need to be a loop arriving back at the front door?
Makes sense to. Although it will make my available climbing even more miniscule. So no! Wherever you want but starting at home.

Re: Restrap route planning competition

Just worked out one from home (doesn't include our 25% grade lane - I'm not that daft) 77km with 2008m of climbing and the furthest it gets from home is one bit about 10km away. There are still five climbs I've not been able to fit in :shock: Bloody good going that Bob, reckon you can do better? Le...

Restrap route planning competition

Could be a fun exercise: https://restrap.com/pages/competition How about a BB local edition of the comp? What's the most climbing you could do from your front door, sticking to their rules: " plan a route with the highest elevation gain possible within 50mi/80km without using the same climb more tha...

Re: derailleur hanger alignment tool

I've always used an old solid axle threaded into the hanger and a bit of threaded bar or whatever is straight and handy in the dropouts. It's easy to see if these aren't parallel, and you can bend it with the axle. Not as accurate or user-friendly as a proper tool admittedly, but a lot cheaper and ...
