Re: Bargain Alert Thread

Hopefully a bargain, as mine will be delivered on Monday... Aluminium cx frame, carbon forks and nice through axle wheels for less than £300. https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/Shark-Traverse-Frame-Forks-Wheel-Set-Acid-Yellow/112642759047?hash=item1a3a081987:m:mm0Mm2v-jf8g7xovVVEqUKA This week I have searche...

Dissent 133 'glove system'. The showerproof glove isn't waterproof, unsurprisingly, but is drizzleproof. Not tested the waterproof ones yet. The liner gloves feel nice

Re: drop bar width, how to decide?

For what intended purpose on what bike? 42cm on both my road and CX (CX, not gravel, adventure,...) bikes. It was initially odd going that narrow coming from 800mm on my hardtail. I think I'd probably go 40cm or even 38cm on the road bike now for extra #aero #tuck. 42cm is the default so you won't b...

Re: Which Apidura Packs?

I have the full set of the 'normal' Apidura bags. Although I bought early, before the price increase. I also have bags from various other brands. Bashing Apidura for not being waterproof is poor form - most similar bags are similarly not waterproof. I would recommend, based on what the various I own...

Re: WRT - Scary? Unappealing?

Finally, I do enjoy a tough route, but generally I see a hike a bike as being a means to an end, and a connector between two good bits of riding. I’m slightly put off riding in a new area if it’s going to be guesswork whether any or all of it is rideable. This^ I've zero interest in HaB as type 2 f...

Re: Spanish C2C 2018 Hands Up Who's In?

Jamie, so you'll arrive in Barca on thursday 10th at 10.20am with Ryanair and depart on Sunday 20th at 10.40 with Easyjet? We finish on Saturday 19th in the afternoon and given your departure time (the others are not until teatime) it may be sensible to get a taxi with your packed up bike. It's abo...

Re: Spanish C2C 2018 Hands Up Who's In?

Jamie, the flight from Edinburgh to Barcelona should be on the 10th ie Thursday to give you time to get to Tarragona for a morning start on Friday 11th. There is another rider coming from Edinburgh ive advised him to get the flight that gets to Barca at 10.20am as another guy is flying in at 10am s...

Re: Spanish C2C 2018 Hands Up Who's In?

The dates suit me. I'm still interested, still apprehensive about being veggie and not liking eggs.

Edit: will the route be possible on a cx bike?
Edit2: fly from/to Edinburgh
