Re: WTD - Backcountry research Tulbag

I'm looking for one too.

http://backcountryresearch.com/ is offering free international shipping for orders over $60. If there are any other takers I'd be happy to organise an order and forward distribution.

Anyone?

Re: Fatfighters 2018 Weigh-in Thread

It was all going so very well. One and a half stones lost since the new year then I fell off the wagon and undid a lot of the hard work. A slow circuit of the Fred Whitton last weekend has since provided sufficient incentive to get me back on track.

I've got a pair of TRP Spykes for sale. Used but still fully functional. I'll throw in some Avid brake levers, cables and some sintered pads too. £100 the lot, posted.

Re: WTD Cheap Garmin GPS or similar

I think I've got an old serial-to-usb adaptor lying around somewhere. Would that help?

Re: Route Analysing Website

Yes, you can upload your own tracks. Fourth "row" down, fifth button from left. It will try to route using the selected transport type, so maybe first set it to Cycling - Mountain Bike.

Re: Makeshift (emergency) bivi bag

Hi Stu. I've got a couple of spares (Rab Pertex & Goretex) if you want to borrow one. I can drop them off at registration; leave it there when you finish for me to pick up.
