FS/FT: Pair of Clement X'Plor MSO 700x50c (29x2.0)

Hi all, Lightly used pair of these 50mm gravel tyres. Ridden <50K and were never punctured. Looking for a similar but narrower tyre, ideally 700x45c. EDIT: Will include the 2 inner tubes that were fitted with the tyres (Vavert presta 29 x 1.75-2.25). £22 posted, £18 for collection from East London, ...

Re: Bike for commute and bikepacking - a hybrid?

Sounds like theres room in the budget for a nice warm sleep system :-bd Haha! Yeah, have to spend the rest of the budget somehow :lol: I think I will wait with upgrading the groupset. Can always do that. Will see how I gel with the current setup first. Good idea. Get some use out of what you’ve pai...

Re: Bike for commute and bikepacking - a hybrid?

So... things evolved quite quickly today, and it's a new bike day :grin: https://i.ibb.co/SNspcXQ/1.jpg Got myself an pinnacle lithium 2. 2015 in Large. It is practically new, and costed me £200. 5K ride home was quite nice. It's definitely heavier than what I'm used to, but that's expected. It feel...

Re: Bike for commute and bikepacking - a hybrid?

I've got a KTM Ultrafire 27.5 hardtail... Thanks for the suggestion! I think I prefer a 29er with 1 chainring though. I use a Carerra Subway 2, for both those and more... Looks like a really good bike for the price and a good starting point for an upgrade. There are also loads of these 2nd hand in ...

Re: Bike for commute and bikepacking - a hybrid?

Thanks everybody for the suggestions. Super helpful! I lived in a flat in Sheffield: commute bike in the hall. Road bike artfully on the wall. MTB under the bed.... :-bd Now when I think about it... It might work. Will end up costing quite a lot more than I expected but the final result will fit bot...

Re: Bike for commute and bikepacking - a hybrid?

Thanks lune ranger for the suggestions! I think the salsa fargo is way out of budget but the other two are quite relevant. Regarding having two bikes, one for commute / city rides and one for bikepacking. It sounds great but living in a shared flat I don't have enough room for 2 bikes. Even if I cou...

Bike for commute and bikepacking - a hybrid?

Hi all, I'm new to the forum and so far it looks like a super valuable resource. So thanks everybody for sharing their knowledge :-) I'm looking for a new bike and need some advice. Yep, another noob question. It's going to be my only bike. I plan to use it for my daily commute (~5km) and general ci...
