Re: New Bike Gear Out And Due Out...

I've realised that I think I might be dead. I've just looked back through this thread and virtually nothing looks interesting or seems appealing. Now, I'm not saying that's actually the case, hence my concern that I might indeed be dead.

Anyone else or just me?

FS: Supernova dynamo lights. SOLD

Front and rear Supernova E3 Pro dynamo lights. I bought these new, fitted them to a bike and then never rode it :roll: Superb lights, well suited to road and gravelwankery but sufficient for some manly off-road work too. Anyway, there's plenty of reviews on-line about how good they are. The pair wou...

Reccommend my mum a headtorch.

My mum wants a headtorch (?), so I thought I'd ask the collective. I'm thinking battery powered rather than USB, although both would be useful. Nothing too bright and something that's easy to use ... read that as, no need for lots of modes, coloured lights or anything confusing or complicated :wink:...

Re: Cheapest/lightest option to add warmth

Just remembered - some time ago I made a small Apex blanket to use as an additional layer over my torso / shoulders inside my quilt. I recall I used Argon for the shell. It measures 90cm x 70cm and weighs 113g.

Re: Cheapest/lightest option to add warmth

I thought it was just me being weird until I saw it mentioned on here.
I get better results if I take my jacket inside my quilt / sleeping bag and use it as an additional layer (like a blanket) over me.

Re: New member saying Hello & tent advice

Have you had a look at the Alpkit Soloist. 1.2kg and £120. Should provide enough room to 'live'.

The OEX Bobcat is another which doesn't look bad. Can be had for £60ish.

Re: Cheapest/lightest option to add warmth

I've often found that wearing trousers / jackets doesn't add quite as much warmth as I'd hoped. I've always assumed it's partly the fact that I'm crushing at least 50% of the insulation. I reckon 250g of down would produce better results elsewhere.

Not overly cheap but these folk will make you an Apex over-quilt.

Re: New member saying Hello & tent advice

On a similar thought to Tim above, the Luxe MiniPeak is similar but both sides open which could prove useful in summer or with kids.

Cranked magazine.

I suppose this is more of a warning than anything for those who enjoys Cranked magazine ... because the latest issue features yours truly and it's the only article they've ever attached a parental guidance warning to. Enjoy :wink:

I can only imagine what the toe overlap must be like. Seeing things like that does sadden me because you can half guarantee that the culprit now believes Arkose to be a poorly handing death-trap.

Rumbling
Is that an included noise or will the rumbling be silent and more of a feeling - like when wheel bearings are on their way out?

Simpson?

How does the visor work? Does it pop on and off?
No, not Simpson Ben. I've always had Simpson helmets but these days I don't ride enough to justify the price - I think an RX is about £650.

Visor? It doesn't have one :wink:

Aye that was mum and dad. She'll be a big girl but soft as a brush. She has her last injection on Monday, so I'll go and collect her next weekend and the fun can begin.
