£30 to press a headset in!? :shock:
My reaction exactly, had to confirm that price didn’t include the cup to be pressed in!

At least I will be able to press away to my hearts content now :-bd

Re: The post man's been ...

My eBay special £18 headset press. “Toopre” tools (?!) in lovely electric blue. Was fully prepared for it to be dreadful but LBS want £30 to do it so I thought it was worth a punt. Delivery took a week but 10 mins after it arrived I had the forks in on my ‘new‘ old bike build. Actually quite impress...

WTD: 700c 142x12 rear wheel

After a rear wheel for a friend who is having issues with warranty after a cracked rim.

700c, Shimano 9/10/11 speed hub, centre lock preferred, 142x12 thru axle, easy on rim width but it’s for a gr@vel bike so around 23? He’s running 37c tyres.

Does any one have anything suitable for sale?

Cheers.

I think the clue is in the last item, bar tape (and the GRX shifter). Looks like an mtb is the tool du jour for this years event from the reports so far.... :shock:
I’d say a Brompton would be more appropriate. Easier to carry!

Re: Nighttime riding, fear and loathing.

I get the same thoughts, I think part of the issue is I tend to get more ‘inside’ my own head at night as there is less to look at and these thoughts rattle around in there. Things that help me: -more powerful lights that I have confidence in - thinking back to other times when I’ve ridden in the da...

Re: WTD - quite a few parts !!!

I’ve a 10spd XTR shifter, SL-M980 right hand in pretty good nick. £25 plus postage? Can pm photos.

I may also have some forks but I’m waiting to fit another set to see if I will sell these. (Sorry that’s not very helpful for you unless you are still looking in a couple of weeks!)

Canyon Nerve AM 26er frame and shock

Long shot: I have an old (c. 2012?)Canyon Nerve AM frame and shock which has served me well but just not the riding I do at the moment. It’s been well used and has scratches to show but also been helitaped in some areas so at least these are fine! Might make an interesting project for someone... Dig...

Re: MYOG - Climashield quilt - 100gsm

The section itself is 860mm long. Do i place It close to the foot box, with a buckle at the taper transition? This seems the most sensible.. But what do i know!? This is where I put mine, same length zip, it works well as the foot box is less draughty. I left about an inch on top of seam allowance ...

Re: Quilt Fabric

I made mine from the 55gsm you’ve got there (in rather fetching purple and orange...).
My choice was driven by cost because just I wanted to try a quilt. I’m sure there will be a difference in packability from using a lighter weight fabric but I reckon most of the bulk is driven by the insulation.

2p’s worth from bits local to me: Aside from two climbs (Old Winchester Hill and Salt Hill) going east on the SDW to QECP is mostly gravel so should ride fine. Those two climbs can get a bit greasy but should be ok I’d have thought even after the rain today and tomorrow. Can’t comment on Salisbury t...

Re: Bikepacking mistakes you’ve made

Packing a can of beer next to a rivet in my seat pack, at least I know my seat pack is still waterproof because I only knew about the can integrity issue when I unrolled the bag to a small stream of beer leaking out.
At least I had another can which was better packed!
