Re: Yay, it's cheery Friday.

Firstly, after raining for 48 hours - it's stopped. That in itself is enough but better is the fact that last week while tillering a bow it decided to 'self adjust' which left me with a piece of Yew far shorter than I'd had 2 seconds previously. The solution was to turn it into a kids bow which I g...

Re: Bivi boots

There used to be a company in Glasgow that made (or sold) 'Bothy Boots'... like really thin, roll up, calf length wellies that were packable and lightweight. Made more for slipping over socks in camp or nipping out of the bothy, so not super hardwearing... can't find them anymore or much very simila...

I don't wear glasses very often when riding but have found Bolle safety glasses (and even their mini goggles) to be top notch.

Re: aussie grit flint shorts sizing?

6'3" tall, 36-37" waist and 105kg (I know.. no idea why the imp/metric mix :roll: )… XXL is a little loose on the waist but fine on the thigh for me... shorts have a lower waist than I'd like but, once on and riding, feel fine. Prefer the bibs for the latter reason. HTH... only XXL in bibs left.
