Re: Recommend an EBB & QR SS hub

It doesn't sound to me like your frame has an appropriate BB shell to take an EBB?

Re: Waterproofs

I had a Keela Saxon, and wasn't massively impressed. The DWR seemed to wear out very quickly, and I had no joy reproofing it.
After many recommendations on here, I've now got an Outdry. Too early for me to comment on its durability, but the waterproofing seems excellent.

Not seen any chat on the non starters, but there's at least one bike that failed to make it to the start. :sad:

Silk Road Mountain Race (SRMR)

Anyone else dotwatching? I'm keeping my eye on Stef and Dave from Pannier (219a/b), and Sheffielder Megan Wilson (57).
Apparently Megan got hit by a car before the start. She's riding but has some nasty wounds. Fingers crossed she can stay free from any infections.

Aye - but from the App?
In the app, if I scroll down to the very bottom of my list of routes, there's a message saying "Build custom routes on the web at strava.com/routes/new", so I guess not (unless it's something bundled with the paid for version).

How do you access it? I can't see any menu option.
Via the desktop website version:
Log in, then go to the "Dashboard" drop-down menu and select "My routes". Just under the page heading, there's an orange button marked "Create New Route".

Re: saddle to sit on not in..

I like flat saddles, and have been getting good results with Fabric Scoops (both the flat and shallow versions). If you want something narrower, maybe have a look at their "Line" series?

Re: 29er Drop-bar Mountain Bike options

As you want a drop bar MTB won't in need to use a MTB groupset and not a road one anyway? Will depend on shifter preferences. For "road" STI units, one needs to pair them with road mechs.* Or use something like a JTEK shiftmate. And then you find that road front mechs don't reach far away enough fr...

Re: Pedal dilemma

I ride flat pedals on everything now, including my #gradventourer. It started off as getting fed up with having to change pedals or shoes when commuting, then with scrabbling for grip on pub floors, or when HAB-ing up muddy slopes. Having a nice big pedal platform seems to be a good substitute for s...

The line between drop barred mountain bike - gravel bike - adventure bike is all a bit blurred.
I thought we'd already cleared this one up: Gradventourer.
