Isn't James Hayden a roadie? Guess the Highland trail route will provide an opportunity for a rapid mountainbiking learning curve.
He's been tweeting today about ending up bum-first in a pile of nettles, sounds like he's progressing nicely along said curve...

Re: Hybrid Bike... Gearing Identification

Do you want to ride this bike only on a stationary trainer? Or do you want to be able to take it out for rides too? If the former, geometry shouldn't matter all that much, as you should be able to get all the contact points in the right places (e.g. with comically long/short stems or seatposts). If ...

Also run AT Ride, albeit it tubeless on Mavic Open pro UST disc rims.
These do look good. They don't seem to be specced as tubeless, did you have any problems setting them up?

Re: Advice please - Converting a commuter to a gravel bike

I've ridden two, both on borrowed bikes. The first bike was horrendously neglected, the chain was worn to the extent it kept coming off the sprockets, and the shifter cable was utterly gunged up, so I couldn't release tension on it to shift into lower gears - I had to stop at the bottom of each clim...

Tyres - I ride round the Peak quite happily on 38c G-Ones (actually come up as 40.5mm) in the summer, WTB Resolutes in the winter (43mm actual).

Boiling water into pot, leave for a minute. Shovel into gob. Then, ovaltine into cream pot, with rest of hot water from Ti mug.
Why not just add the Ovaltine/hot chocolate/instant coffee to the remaining water in the Ti mug?

May comprehensively ticked off. Two nights on the WRT.

Then I spent this weekend guiding five folk from the LFGSS forum around th...

Re: WRT 2019 Story Telling

Reg*, the metalled** track went pretty much as far as it shows on Google maps. Then there was a couple of hundred metres of grassy track, then about a hundred meters of tussocky stuff past Llyn Lort, but not so bad as to be unrideable. Suspect it could get boggy, but fine at the time. I tried to kee...

That's fair enough, it'd be a significant weight if you were carrying enough for 150 riders.
