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

I tried to keep up with what he was talking about but failed miserably, turned the volume down and it was much better!
Would love to go riding like that at the moment though with a few friends.
I cant remember the last time I went to Wales to ride my bike :sad:

Re: Best trail / multitool of all time?

Crank Brothers 19, quality kit.
They do a 20 now and I have just bought my wife one, the extra tool is a think for pushing in tyre worms and it has a little case clipped to the side for said worms, very snazzy.

Re: Which filter?

I have a trailshot and the Be Free, I prefer the Be free its smaller lighter and quicker and you can use it for water storage as well. If you clean it with warm clean water when you get home the filter stays tip top.

It was cooking hot last year too and although it stayed dry this year it was rarely warm. I met up with Dave (see Above) on day one and Gary who was punishing himself...
