FS: 3 x Gorilla Cages and 4 x Monkii clips.

As per title, I have 3 gorilla cages, fitted, removed and never used.

I also have 4 monkii clips, 2 in retail packaging, 2 without.

I'm open to offers on combinations of the above.

For reference, gorilla cages retail for £19.99 and monkii clips for £10.50.

I should add, if I'd had to buy a bikepacking specific bike for Iceland I wouldn't have been able to afford to go.

Re: Sleeping mat upgrade

I tried a airo 120, lasted one night. cold, thin and i don't sleep well with cold feet.

I then bought a neoair xtherm. best thing ever, wasn't cheap but really warm, really comfortable and is smaller and lighter than the airo

I'll sell you a airo 120 cheap if you like?

Re: best adventure mattress?

I tried an alpkit airo 120 and decided thin 2/3 length mats aren't for me. I got cold and uncomfortable.

Bought a neoair Xtherm instead. Smaller, lighter, much warmer, much more expensive even on sale.

With on of the mounts from the gorilla cage on top it should be fine, or a couple of washers should space it out.

Re: Forkin cages!

I take it back. Found the long bolt in the packaging for the monki clip. Seems to clip onto a RS revelation pretty securely.

I think a zefal gizmo at the bottom to stabilise the cage and it might just work.

I've just ordered a set of gorilla cages with a monkii clip for one leg and some zefal gizmo's for the other to see which is best. turned up. cages look good but a schoolboy oversight on the monkii clip means it was never going to work. designed for 38mm circumference tube is never going to fit a t...

I hadn't, the gizmo clamps he reviews have been modified though to be adjustable though.

Dartmoor - way of the dead.

After reading about this in STW issue 98 and seeing as this is on my doorstep I decided to go and have an explore as a test of some new bikepacking gear. Epic views, remote and barren. Navigation was fairly straightforward on a nice sunny day but there are sections where the right route is vague at ...
