Nope, but asking Shona and Rich would be my suggestion.

Re: Full suspender riders...

2016 Hei Hei is a stunning bike. I spent 3 days in Austria for the launch with Kona and was stunned, literally STUNNED at how capable it was for a short trail XC bike. The new 120mm version is a very different beast. Friend of mine has it on test at the moment. Any excuse for a photo from my journo ...

Re: Before Cuben, carbon and Dyneema

I had one of the early TNF Tadpoles as well, lovely tent. Made the mistake of selling it on to buy a MT25 (Which was crap) when I was doing a lot more mountaineering. Sold that a few years later and bought a Mountain Hardware Trango 2 - still have that 20 years on.

Re: SS Boost Hubs with freewheel thread?

Ahh, some bike fondling. Sorry, fettling.

I've my old Ti Fargo set up SS - surprisingly light and fun. Used my old XC race wheels and cranks - probably about 8kg all in :???:

Re: SS Boost Hubs with freewheel thread?

IIRC the Hope bodge can work - if it is one of the new Hope hubs. Though I've not bothered!

Re: SS Boost Hubs with freewheel thread?

I settled on a frame with normal spacing, was easier at the time :) DT do some hubs that work with a bodge- 240s singlespeed - had a chat with Chris Plesko about this over email he's been using it with a lot of success. Also had a chat with a few other SS riders I know... all sticking to "normal" sp...

I figured it was a house spider - but I don't know much about them!

Slightly more ominous version as well:

Re: Photos you have taken in the last month of which you like.

Experimented with an ultra wide 16mm Russian lens on my old Canon AEp.

Fomapan 200 is the film. Not 100% happy with the processing, but it's ok for what it cost.

Re: Way off topic, Photoshop

GIMP wors well, learning curve is a bit steep. But so are most photo editing software packages.

You've never said what it is he needs to do - depending on this, it may not even need something so complex.

Third Speafish now. Also have a Pivot Mach 5.

I'd have to think back a long way since I haven't had a full sus as well as a hardtail. At least 1999 I'd suspect.

Re: Ragley Luxy bars

Best bars I've ever owned. I will happily take them to the grave. Regretted selling my original pair, then when I found another pair I snapped them up.
