Re: Off road ITT purely by written directions?

I recall James rode (raced) the TD without a gps and did very well.

Some years ago one of the local farms became something of a 'science lab' and one of the local forests has a large amount of LSD buried within its trees that no one's yet found .... :wink:

Re: 27+ rim width?

There's little point in running big tyres without a decent width rim ... it's the rim that produces the volume thus, the benefit. Otherwise you're partially just dragging round extra weight for minimal gain. buy some 40mm or 45mm and embrace it properly. :wink:

Re: 100g tarp - again.

what size is it?
Sizing is a bit odd as it's actually 'shaped' rather than a square or rectangle.

Yep, 6mm crossgrain for the lines.
