Re: ‘Gravel’ bikes?

My steel (+ carbon forks) CX/Gravel bike weighs in about 20.75 lbs, I'd be surprised if a Fargo could get anywhere near that? It doesn't make me faster in any way but a nice lightish bike just feels nice to ride in some ways, lively. If I already had a Fargo I liked I would probably just use that th...

Re: Wildcamping toxic?

I wrote this very nearly 5 years a go to the day.

Re: Anyone ridden the Reiver Raid route? Any good?

Convoluted about sums it up when I looked at the route. I live there about and I’ve probably ridden most of it but not as a route. The way it goes through my village was nuts when I looked.

Re: What are you listening to now?

Been listening to quite a lot of Warren Zevon lately, WIllie Nelson, same as In Reverse some early Depeche Mode (saw them live in 1984/5?), Pearl Jam's new album, caught up on Blues Kitchen podcasts...strong chance I am going for either Terrorvision or Shed Seven in a minute

Re: When?????

So does that mean July 3rd wild camping is ok (Scotland)? No travel restrictions and no shared facilities I can't see why not.

Though it's a farce with other stuff I see going on anyway...

Re: wtd: 27.5 plus tires (2.8")

Outback is for the country gent! I have a Forester, that's for the farmers...though mine is the 2.5 turbo, 07, £550 tax I think (I try not to look)

Finally managed to get my self levelling headlamp warning light to go off this week so pleased with myself :lol:

Yeah apart from the car tax rate which is frankly eye watering!


Rekon weighs 935g on my scales so probably too heavy

Re: wtd: 27.5 plus tires (2.8")

I have a 2.8 rekon but 1. I'd have to weigh it 2. I don't like to condone people running non matching tyre brands 3. Of all the places on a bike the front tyre is the last place I'd try and save weight over function, besides a nice big gyroscope on the front can be a good thing 4. Since I think we b...

Re: Retro 1x bodgery

Have a wolf tooth ring on my cx and it was even more than the Middleburn!

Also run an 11-40 sunrace on that and it works fine just made this 11-42 out of bits

I do have an 11-46 9 speed cassette but the mech did not have the range to make it work

Retro 1x bodgery

Had a bit of a gearing revamp on the Inbred mullet Because - my front rings (old 5 bolt compact) where pretty worn the front mech has always been a mud magnet I just like the simplicity of 1x on my other bike and I was probably a bit bored and like to tinker Middleburn direct mount 32 NW (they call ...

Middleburn (BETD) do a direct mount 32t narrow wide which looks nice and neat, just put one on my Inbred
