Re: Craft softshell, Altura transformer and windproof

what sort of temperature range is the Craft one - is it more autumn spring/coldish than full on winter freezing?

Could do with something quite bright for my commute

Re: Forum clock / time

i use it as a reminder to do all the bike jobs i would forget - strip and service forks, cup and cone bearings etc - still not sure why I want it to be darker earlier at night in winter - its not like we are all outside farming so i fail to see the point of the change

Re: Garmin RAM mounts worth the extra £sass

Mine got ejected so many times I put the RAM Amount on - a few points 1. no need for a lanyard it is not going anywhere 2. Its protects it from OTB and impact in general 3. you can fit a spare set of batteries in it underneath - probably four if you really cared 4. I dont care how pretty or ugly it ...

Re: levarg goes main stream

Not sure i would ever actually attempt anything that required me to drop my seat on a drop bar bike - if you cannot easily pick a line [slowly] I am going to be hammering my rim anyway.

I have ridden it in the lakes but if i think i could do with a dropper right now I will be off and walking.
YMMV

Re: levarg goes main stream

You will have to read it to find out what Gravel levarg means
So good they named it twice

Dropper and suspension on a gravel adventure bike just seems all kinds of wrong to me ,IME gravel requires neither of these things and if you need suspension and a post take a MTB and be done with it.
