ST&G Map

Hiya, has or does anyone use the ST&G adventure map of UK for their BP treks ?
I came across it on the OS site, it looks ok and may save buying multiple OS maps for one trek ,
Cheers

Obviously targeted by robbers , any way the house is in the Richmond u Thames area, I just thought I’d put it on here in case one pops up th...

Re: Bike for a “Lump of a Lad “ !!

I think the Stache would be a bit exxy for him at the price I saw on Evans, but the Trek Roscoe may suit , I’m going to let him have a bomb around Richmond Park on my Lapierre and see if he likes the MTB set up ,

Re: Helmets.

I have had a brain buckets over the years , the one I do really like is the Bontager wave cell, supposedly better protection a a sort of crumple zone liner , but I do find it well light and well ventilated, the chin strap has a magnetic catch , all in all a bit exxy but ok by me

Re: Smart Sam Tyres

In what way? Were they just slow, or did you not have any traction?

Just like to say they are 650b 2.25 s

Yes , the traction not as good , although they are a bit nobbly, the WTB ‘s ate the mud trails , even when almost up to the axles , I think the Sams were about 24 sobs delivered for the pair ,

Smart Sam Tyres

Hiya, when I bought my MTB it had WTB Trail Boss’s on it , which were everything I’d have expected in the mud , however, I really think , unless I go looking for it blasting through deep swampy-mud trails I do not really need them , they are are bit heavy going on the hard stuff and slow ,also I fou...

Re: What axle do I need ?

That wheel with hub has long gone, so that’s it I suppose , it did not have a rotor adapter either , so ,..... I’ll probably go for a hub that will suit the forks I get for it , I’ve got two idrive frames, my favoured one does not have a disc mount on the rear , so that’s a thing for another day so ...

Re: What axle do I need ?

That wheel is a Sun-Ringle Inferno 27, I got it off eBay to replace the one on the GT , the rim had worn out , I dug out this photo of the bike about 2013-14, as you can see the forks are Marchozzi Bombers and if you look ‘ at the hub you can make out ‘20’ and a large skewer cap, i remember now it h...

Re: What axle do I need ?

Thanks for replies, mmm, it’s not very straightforward is it , so........ on the 8th Feb I’m booked onto a wheel building course, I think my best option is to maybe change the hub to a normal QR or thru axle that will fit the forks that I get for that bike ,
Thanks again fellas !
