Re: Newbie alert - bike recommendations

If it’s Specialized, then the Diverge will be a good gravel bike, tyres can go to ~42mm if my memory serves me well.

If not and you want a mountain bike, then the Epic (Hardtail) or Chisel will suit your needs. If your mates can get you a good deal on the Epic, then you’ll not regret it

Re: Bikepacking events, but not hardcore?

Don’t want to sound flippant but you could always organise one yourself. Just pick a meeting point and a route and invite people over one weekend.

Doesn’t have to be fancy, just tell people you’re riding from place A, to which pub/cafe etc and you’re away

Re: Single Speed Help...

I’ve never Correctly tensioned a SS, I’ve always put it on tight and never had a chain jump like that. I’ve tried using a cassette once to find the right SS gear for my fat bike but gave up on that idea after a day or so (the cassette) as it jumped off frequently. As Stu says, stick with a proper SS...

amazon man brought me a rather huge world map for the wall
Ohh. I want one of them. Which did you get?
I’ve had one from The Future Mapping Company, sometimes on sportspursuit, it’s 3m x 2m, which is a little bit big to frame, so it’s Velcro’d to the wall

I'm genuinely curious - why a double-ended zip? The only scenario I can put forward is the pee-over-bibs one.
Better for venting, open from the bottom zip and it prevents the best turning into a parachute. Better for fast roadies than slow mountain bikers but still works
