Ribble CGR Ti Vid

Bought myself a new Ribble CGR Ti on Cycle Scheme, turns out is a pretty capable off roader. Im kinda tempted to do the HT550 on it...Although having never done it, has anyone done the HT550 on a Garvel Bike, is it an utterly stupid idea? I have no issues tacking the challenging terrain, but just wo...

Re: GPS computer recommendations?

If you go off route the navigation to put you back on the track has been excellent. I assume this bit only works on roads ?

Hamerhead Karoo

The Hamerhead Karoo has a big discount on it at the moment (£196), so i have just bought one. Looks like a great unit, but quite large!

Anyone got experience of using one for Bikepacking / mtb type riding?

Re: Hello

Hi, im 6'2 and went from a small one man tent to the Big Agnes Copper Spur 2 man tent. Ok its a bit more than your budget, but its like a hotel, and very light. Im not compromising on space any more, i like to site up and get changed without being cramped. plus i can always take my kids with me now ...
