Re: Any Fat Boners out there?

https://singlespeedsimon.files.wordpress.com/2014/03/dsc_0483.jpg Hands up, I have a love hate relationship with my fat bike. They are brilliant when they are loaded up and are off road. Nice and stable to ride and in some respects, make great bikepacking bikes. I’ve had many a great trip on the fa...

Both dream places to go and see for me, so ermmm, which one first really? Thinking of 2021 for a summer time trek, probably will only get a weeks permission/child care, so looking at a trek* of 4 days with a day either side for travel. What have you done?

Re: Off Road Issue 3.

I’ve enjoyed my copies, sadly now in the recycling. The photography tends to be off a high quality and some of the trips are to grand places. Bike testing is of the upper range, as is some of the Gucci kit, but the articles are well worth reading. If nothing else, it will keep you motivated to ride ...

It's getting bad now, just been looking at unicycles !!
I’ve just bought Chinese Lego (ethically wrong I know), 700 piece car coming not-so-soon for £20!
What car is it?
McLaren road car, picked more by price and amount of pieces rather than shape :lol:

Re: Space saving bike storage?

The bikes that don’t get regular use in my garage are stored top and tail upside down with their front wheel off. Saves on some space. The bikes that are used are left built up and are ready to ride, two on the floor and two hanging by their top tubes next to each other (top and tail to save on space)

Re: Stuck between two bikes

What bikes have you got Shaff*? I'd be matching the type of bike you've got to his new ride (but of the two, the Salsa...!) Also, consider what he may ride next year? Is he likely to go off to the woods with his mates to muck about on bikes? If so, a gravel bike may not be ideal *That is right, isn'...

Re: Microshift 10 Speed - No New Standards, No Silly Small Chains Or XD Drivers.

Looks nice and it’s nice to have alternatives to the two big S brands but try getting a spare for it just before a weekend’s ride. Think it will be a frustrating weekend

Re: So it's come to this ...

Mop and bucket is fair easier in my experience, you know when you’re hoovering and the cord isn’t long enough? That but with the added annoyance of water/steam

Edit - sub standard, it’s come down to me giving steam mop opinions :cry:

Re: Combination Pedals

One of the reasons I use Crank Bros Candies. The small platform helps spread weight rather than it all being through the cleat. Candy’s for me too! Lovely small platform and easier to clip into then the egg beater style (well, it was a long time ago I used the egg beaters but from faded memory...)
