You're not having much success with that route at the mo! Hopefully the third time will be the charm. :-bd

Re: FS: EBC BoB copy trailer.

Hmm... What size 700c tyre do you think would fit? 45c?
I'm guessing the limiting factor is the axle to "crown" measurement rather than tyre width?

Re: Peaks200 Northerly section routing Q

I'd assumed it just follows the TPT there, and there's just the A628 to cross (not ride along)?

Re: Todays ride

Training up the next generation of bikepackers, I managed to get the mini Landslides round the green and blue routes at Sherwood Pines today (with the odd helping hand on the smallest Landslide's back).

Encouragingly, they preferred the techier blue trail...

...I've been keeping an eye out for a cheap 35mm stem to try, but thus far haven't turned up anything.
Not sure it'll help with the rise issue, but this seemed to be the best length/cost option I could find.

Re: bikes with super short stems & a Jones bar

I've got a 90mm stem in the spares box, and a friend who reckons they may have a 60 somewhere. It's experimenting time!

Re: bikes with super short stems & a Jones bar

Having just spent my first appreciable period of time on a set of loop bars, I'm interested in this too. 35mm stem feels too short for my riding position anyway (I feel like I need a bit more stretch), but I'm also trying to figure out what the handling should "feel" like.

Re: Bivvy a month 2019

Fanciful notions. That’s what I have. A growing list of rides I fancy a crack at next year. One of them is the Peak 200. I’ve already ridden the central and North/East bits of the route many times over, but the West and South are not so familiar, so I decided to combine my August BAM with a bit of a...
