Re: Eid pressie prize! (Prize updated so gravel strokers don't feel intimidated against)

Whilst I'm sure Christianity's 10 commandments could probably be condensed into Rule 1 (I'm pleading ignorance on other religions), the actual answer is shorter than the one suggested by Lazarus! :lol:

A very happy Eid al Fitr, particularly to Shaf, but also to everyone else who celebrates. :-bd

Re: What you done t' your bike today

Yeah, 3-4 months of being covered in road salt will do that. Not sure directing your ire at whatever lube you used is the most productive use of your energy.

I briefly stepped out of the back door and was hit by such a wall of sunshine that I couldn't resist. All grey here again now, if it makes you feel any better.

Re: Today's Run

First run of the year in shorts. Up the valley and back through the local woods, past a very unfussed urban fox, blossom on the trees, birds tweeting all around, and squirrels scampering across the path. Lovely.

I see Jasmin is going clockwise. Given this is the direction chosen by the leader, is she in for an easier* time?

Hope Pro2 EVO and Pro 4 can both be converted from 135mm QR or 142mm thru to 148mm boost using the HUB493 conversion kit.

Seems fair. I wonder if they'll still be allowed to run and then be told later, just for maximum punishment?

It's been paid to future you, who now no longer needs to pay a bike shop to deal with your seized bolts.

Re: Bivvy a Month 2024

Well, my cunning plan of not compiling my report straight away, and waiting for Reg to weave his usual excellent narrative as per seems to have worked nicely. All I'll add is that Cavedale was a bloody stupid idea. Some pics: https://www.instagram.com/p/C4sGs7DNsQ6/ https://www.instagram.com/p/C4sHz...

How long does it take for your mat to lose pressure?

I awoke in the night the other month with my mat feeling distinctly deflated. Having spent more time than I'd rather stomping on it in the bath and looking for bubbles, I have singularly failed to find a puncture. From a bit of internet research, I understand that mats can go soft due to air cooling...
