Re: Am I being churlish/picky?

looks pretty realistic to me. I prefer it to the HDR superboost max (TM) filters that get applied to a lot of stuff.

Re: Buffalo shirts on bikes

Sweaty bastard here too. Best thing I’ve done is ditch merino, it gets wet, stays wet and then gets cold.

Patagonia capeline baselayers all the way for me now.

Re: Tubeless puncture repair

The weldite ones I have seem to last ok. 15mm cut might be on the limit of what they would seal though. I’ve jammed three in a hole to hold enough air to get home before.

Re: Scotland - Beta on Etive and Rannock

no, but I've ridden the west shore. 90% rideable with a km or two of bog hopping at the end before reaching the road.

get in early as they have a limited amount of google data, which I guess it what killed the bikehike functionality.

Re: (A bit of ) the Southern Way

I’ve ridden Tavistock to totnes a few times. I actually prefer going over the top via princetown as it’s one big long slog of a climb and then mostly downhill to totnes. If you go around the edge of the moors you seem to be constantly climbing in and out of valleys.

Re: New member questions - how do you pick your camping spot

I thought the standard approach was to ride past all the good spots because it too early/windy/exposed etc etc and then finally end up in a midge infested ditch because going back would be stupid?

Only to ride past the perfect spot 100yds further on after packing up in the morning.

Re: Highland Trail 550 - 2018

Yep, agreed, a pisstake. Those two will be overtaken by many of the field, especially if Ben Alder Cottage is a first night stop for one, so will be contending for the already limited resources
Didn’t realise it was closed course racing.

Ride them whenever I feel like it. Rarely challenged. If I am, standard response to ‘your not allowed to ride bikes here’ is ‘I know, silly isn’t it’.
