Re: Anyone seen Bob's Torque Wrench?

I needed a 1/4" torque wrench the other month Dave (all mine were too big). Anyway, I went for a Sealey Premier and it's very good. 5 - 25Nm plus ft/lb scale and they're also certified calibrated unlike a lot of others. Just below budget. https://whiterosetools.com/products/sealey-torque-wrench...

Re: Hanging bikes by wheels

Hanging's too good for 'em etc. :wink:

In theory, if you hang them by the front wheel then any air in the brake system will find its way into the master cylinder rather than the caliper ... probably doesn't make much difference in real life.

Re: Lanshan 2?

Very true :wink:
Wouldn't a Luxe MiniPeak or HexaPeak be a good option for Dog packing Stu?
Maybe, I was just thinking that the Lanshan might pack a bit smaller. I think I'll get her in a TS first and see how she goes on.

Re: Yet another 'Divide'.

Maybe it was ever thus. Not where bikepacking's concerned Duncan, or at least I don't think so. Once people see the potential to make a few quid, then many will simply maximise said potential. Social media has made this reasonably easy and there's a good number of people who will lap it up. I'm als...

Re: Yet another 'Divide'.

Yep, my fault entirely ... apologies to everyone for anything and everything. Weirdly, I bought a T shirt last night that on the front says "sorry about whatever I say next" and on the back it says, "see, told you so". :wink:

Re: Yet another 'Divide'.

Once it started to become gravel-packing You know, that does trouble me sometimes - I realise it shouldn't but it does. Look at any established bikepaking event and the majority of bikes in attendance will be mountain bikes, yet 'the industry' continually push bikepacking and gravel as going hand i...

I really wouldn't take any comments about pricing personally Marcia. It's something which will nearly always come up when events are discussed and obviously opinions will always differ.

Lanshan 2?

Does anyone have a Lanshan 2? I'm thinking about some type of shelter for Ruby and myself. I'm not sure I'd trust her beneath an open tarp all night and any tents I possess aren't big enough for the pair of us. The Lanshan looks like it might fit the bill while being light enough for me to carry on ...

No, I don't think so. You can be genuinely content yet still lead an active, productive and generous life. It doesn't mean that you've become stagnant.
