Re: Custom dry bags?

It's the 2.92oz hybrid DCF with a face fabric Reg so I'm hoping it's durable. Not had it out yet so I'll report back! Only thing I didn't like is he uses a velcro end for the dry bag which I'm not convinced with, but it's custom so you can ask for what you want! Communication and workmanship are go...

Custom dry bags?

The Alpkit 8l Airlock Xtra is very close to my ideal dry bag for mounting in a bar harness. I like the shape, the fact it’s not double-ended, and the tabs to thread the straps through. If only it was about 5cm taller... basically a 9l bag would nail it. I don’t think this is something Alpkit would c...

Also a big fan of quality instant noodles which often really cheap in Chinese supermarkets. Or try this for a homemade version...

Out on the mountain bike last night and noticed that grindy feeling in the steering towards the end of the ride. Thought to myself, I bet that headset is in a right state after a winter of mank.

Anyone heard any word on the HT550? Yes - The group start for the HT550 is still planned for 22nd May, but Nicola Sturgeon's briefing yesterday was very downbeat. Sadly I think the group start is now highly unlikely - for a start it sounds like no tourism facilities will be allowed to open by then ...

Re: 'Made to lose' :???:

So what's the point in doing a massive press launch like this if no-one (in the UK at least) can buy your product? I've often thought that doing the press launch too early reduces sales. You see a video and think, I'd like one of them, have a look around and the bike's not available for months. But...

I had a (too small) Camino and bought a PX Goldrush.
