Re: Bargain Alert Thread

tend to agree but there is no harm [ except to your wallet] in a broad spectrum placebo :wink:

I would still just get a cheaper multivitamin than that if i was worried as vit c and Iron can be purchased cheaper than that.

Re: Highland Trail 2019

It’s NOW just over 5 weeks until I will start taking requests for places on the 2017 group start. Still not too late to get a qualifying ride in! These include Lakeland 200, Cairngorms Loop and Yorkshire Dales 300. All should have been completed inside the time limits. I’ll also accept the northern...

Re: Stans in very wet conditions.

i think just more sealant added before any event and remember it only lasts three months and the race stuff is even less. I cannot see how a wet ride can alter the tyre - if its sealed it sealed and if air is not getting out then water is not getting in - and remember the tyre has a positive pressur...

Re: Aiguille bikepacking kit

How would it work on full suss frames or if you use a dropper post (or both)?

Re: drilling drop bars handlebars for di2 ....anyone done it

the only place that would concern me drilling wise is near the clamp and even then one hole would not bother me- its just a wee hole and whilst i am sure an accurate machine could measure how weakened the bars are there the reality id for cycling use it will have no measurable impact

YMMV
