Re: mini aero bar thingy

Maybe they thought that with the Lauf the bike would be gopping anyway so they might as well go for broke.

Either that or someone who knows that their lance won't shatter into a thousand sharp splinters of wood.

Back on the other photo, is that a rohloff shifter that's been mounted on the stem faceplate?

I should have said available in the UK rather than manufacturer - the planet x thing was more like what I was after.

easily swappable pump mounts

I came across this on Path Less Pedaled and I was wondering if anyone had seen anything similar from a UK manufacturer: https://originalfreerange.com/collections/riding-accessories/products/quickdraw-single-co2-holster Being able to swap a pump from bike to bike by attaching it to the bottle cage is...

Re: Rear Light recommendations

I can't help with the recommendations but I've lost 4 lights while clipped to the wildcat seat harness straps so I've given up on that approach. I've lost a moon, 2 lezynes and a bontrager. They all had a very similar clip arrangement but they've all bounced off.

I looked it up on their site and there's no mention of power-out cables.
You'll need one of these I believe.

They do a micro usb one too, it just doesn't seem to be on their website at the moment.

Re: Lights - is this available?

Does the Joystick have a charge-out line? (will go and look them up..). If I could get 2000mah out of the light battery into the Garmin and have enough left for lighting on weekend rides it'd be a wider-ranging bit of kit. You can get a Boost cable to charge devices - just plugs in to the smartport...

I've used the 15l ortlieb bar bag between drops - just had to put a few extra rolls in it so it was probably closer to 10l capacity.

Re: Winter gravel tyre - Resolute v Ravager

I put resolutes on the bike last winter but one to replace a set of riddlers and I never did get round to swapping them out again for the summer. I've even done the coast to coast by road with them on because I was too lazy to swap them back out again. A really nice grippy all round tyre that's cope...

Don't forget to make sure all electronics he wants taking are fully charged and you have a spare cache battery.
Make sure you've got enough snacks, because hell hath no fury like a hangry tired child in the outdoors.

Get a phone call saying they're rolled back an entire customer update because a view which didn't exist on the test system is now broken and can I just parachute in and fix all the mess by Monday when it goes live again.
