Re: Anyone able to review/comment on my NorthPeaks100 loop

Suggestion, based on my previous post: https://www.komoot.com/tour/196684272?ref=wtd Caveat 1: I've not ridden the BW sections across the top of Upper Windleden Reservoir, just to the north of the A628, and along Swindens Lane.

Re: Anyone able to review/comment on my NorthPeaks100 loop

My immediate thoughts are that I wouldn't want to spend that long on the A635. Rather than head to Glossop, there's some nice riding between Wessenden Head and Dunford Bridge.

Re: Wtd: 1” 700c fork

I've got an old threaded steel fork. I think it was originally built for 27x1 1/4" wheels. Canti mounts added for CX duties. A-C is 370-375mm ish. Steerer is 175mm long, with the top 35mm threaded. About 45mm between the legs where the tyre would run, so probably good for 35mm ish tyres? Painted blu...

Re: anyone suffer from Hotfoot ?

My understanding was that your feet tend to swell as they warm up when you go riding. I always start with my shoes a bit loose to allow for this, and may further reduce the tension once riding.

Re: Yay, it's cheery Friday.

I've not kept track really. They've had a nice sunny window sill indoors to get them started, and been outside about a week. As soon as I moved them out to the garden, they got a stray football, courtesy of child 1. No idea what variety they are.
