Re: Tubeless

The method in the link seems a lot of faff, could be fatbike tyres are more hassle? I use Roval tubeless tape (£10 roll is plenty for 10s of rims) and roval or superstarvalves (£6 or £7 a pair). The one thing I'd do differently from S8tannorm is try pumping it up before adding the fluid as if you ca...

If anyone is looking for somewhere to stay the night before Oswestry Travelodge can be had for £15! The Tripadvisor reviews aren't great but then I'm not sure that'll upset many of you.... :lol:

Re: This might be a silly question

Every down item I've ever had has lost down to one degree or another. Might be worth a real close look over and check a seam hasn't split, etc. Is it possible to check the original weight to see if its lost a noticeable amount of filling.

Re: Tube size for 29 by 2.2 tyre

Oh, I just noticed the Schwalbe bit properly. The Schwalbe SV19 29er tubes are fine but avoid their super light tubes. They are paper thin! My puncture problems have been with Maxxis EXC Beavers.

Re: Tube size for 29 by 2.2 tyre

I've just ordered some tubes from on-one as I assume their tubes are made by maxxis like their tyres. I've been getting a puncture on every ride until I changed to maxxis.

Anyhow, I digress, they list two sizes of 29er tube widths and they're £2.50ish.

It's going to because busy three days or so for the post man, here's today's offering: The now legendary karrimor down jacket. It comes with a stuff sack but utility squashes into its own pocket readily enough. http://i1232.photobucket.com/albums/ff370/johnnystorm1976/20121126_214010.jpg Large works...

Re: The post man's been ...

I've only got the Gilet and haven't tried it in testing conditions but.... It feels like its decent quality, packs into its own pocket and is cut well. Certainly better than a Peter Storm one for similar money I've got. I got it mainly as it squashes into a small camelback easily.

One of the cheap Karrimor LT Down jackets in large. Seems just fine. Thought it was heavy but weighed it (WTF :roll:) and it was (only) 310g including supplied stuff sack. The Karrimor is much more in the weight / style of Uniqlo stuff. Ah glad to hear it. I've just ordered a snot green one, I've g...
