Re: Underquilt extra warmth?

A question for you hanging cyclists, how do you carry all the gear, especially in the winter months? I’ve been hiking with hammocks for many years, more so in winter these days, but the bulk of a decent rated winter TQ & UQ means my pack can be 60 or 70L depending on the duration. I had thought abou...

Re: Heavy weight day to day coat recommendations

The Fjern eVent stuff looks pretty good on SP, there was a shop in Chamonix selling their stuff last year so I had a touchy feel of it. There were some cheap OMM Aether smocks on ebay last week, not sure if they've gone yet. Columbia Outdry were on Amazon for £90 too I still like a layered approach,...

Re: 'A' poles instead of a single pole

Yeah Ive used this setup in a Solomid and Khufu A couple of 12” lengths of old graphite golf club shaft and a bit of rubber pipe for the join. Or you can buy a few options online, I have the Locus Gear DPTE which is a bit gucci. Not sure how it would work with skinny carbon poles but fine slipped on...

Re: Riding shirts

Long sleeve merino base and a t-shirt over the top usually, not into the jersey thing at all.

If it's too warm for the base layer then just a merino t-shirt

Peloton worth more than Ford

Just seen on a GCN youtube vid that Peloton is now worth more than Ford, $40 billion and $30 billion.

I know plenty of people who drive Fords, I've had four myself, but I don't know anyone with a Peloton.

Re: Luxurious one person accomodation - HexPeak, Duomid

I've had a dcf Solomid and Duomid and sold them both when I got my Khufu dcf-B, it's a really nice compromise between the two and the weight/room is tough to beat. I've got a Solomid Xl in sil on it's way as I prefer sil over dcf in windy weather, it's just more forgiving and a lot quieter on expose...

Re: Which filter?

I use a Hydroblu, similar to a Sawyer but with a better flow rate.

Regular back flushing is key to keeping these little filters flowing. The rubber tap attachments work well for a good blast through.

And don’t let them freeze overnight or they need to go in the bin
