Re: drj0n bagworks

yep! twinfix versions of the megaforce and lightforce available at the synthase website, bike24, r2 bike or some other German shops...tend to be generally pretty good. also check out bike-discount.de as they sometimes have them for a deal.

thanks for the kind words chaps!

Re: Bar mounted accessories setup

ive been interested in bar mounting kit for a wee while, using a Bar Yak Ultra primarily, and with a 4 point harness I made, laterally stiffened with a carbon fibre tube, it is incredibly stable even with a sizeable DCF hybrid roll bag (I also made) mounted. The trick was then to use the carbon 22.2...

Re: Suggest a drybag that'll fit me this

ive been messing around with strap deck bags - im sending Andy at backcountry.scot some soon. I make them, from various materials. they are not waterproof but are water resistant... the latter ones I made are 27cm circumference - just bigger than a waterbottle... keep an eye on backcountry if you ar...

Re: drj0n bagworks

there is a strap that is of fixed length from the bar to the auxiliary bar, then the strap that cinches down on the dry bag goes from bar, round the dry bag to the auxiliary bar. that means tension in *that* strap stops the auxiliary bar rotating back up towards the handlebar and the fixed length st...

Re: Dynaplug users?

yep, agree dynaplug likely to have worked, and brass bits not problem with tube. sometimes they come off, sometimes not, but either way ive not had issues when ive used them. ive also used innovations anchovies, and would generally always want to use a dynaplug from now on.

Re: drj0n bagworks

thanks for that! I knew about an older product very similar called a Fred Bar. I'm not surprised you've had good luck with it. the solidity over rough ground is SO much better eh? the idea is this is as small and light as functionally possible and is also detachable easily. I received a couple of bi...

Re: drj0n bagworks

yep- they are in shear. I reckoned 4xM6 bolts would probably be tough enough to take the weight, even in shear, but it would be a risk. if I pursued this, I would make it keyed in to the steerer part just as you suggest. I actually made this to fit under a stem, but on the bike in the photos there i...

Re: Garmin Etrex to Edge adaptor

for sure. you can buy glue on 1/4 turn mounts at present. Im surprised no one has made a cover mount so far, but I was never able to find one (thingiverse and shapeways being the main sources for this stuff).

in saying that, the mount I have is barely more than a cover so I remain happy with it.

Re: Highland Trail 2019

its an Otso - think he's on 29" tyres. the bb is a flipped 83mm equivalent - takes fatties, but can be set up with various wheels nicely so I hear... and I totally agree 4 days given conditions is nuts.
