Re: Top tip for mechanical disk users

Any idea of the cause (e.g. dirty cable, dirty actuator arm pivot, worn return spring)?

Re: Chilterns Winter Bivvy: 15 Dec

15 Dec is a Sunday night, Tim. Are you intending a late pub meet, followed by a quick-and-dirty bivi and a bleary-eyed pedal into work :-bd?
If so, there's a vague possibility. There's many balls to be juggled that weekend.

Or have you just typed the wrong date? :roll: :lol:

Re: Bivvy a month 2019

A tad nippy last night so the Buffalo bag was pressed into service, complementing the down clothing perfectly. Another superlocal in the woods, returning to my favourite Christmas tree.

9/9
A return to Reg's woodshed of last week, to get September BaM completed at the warm, dry, end of the month :wink: .

Nesting birds kept me company. Fitful sleep on deflatables, before an early ride home to coffee and brekky ~O).

In the excitement of C2W on the MTB through Woburn woods for the first time in aaaaaaaages I forgot my phone was in the kitchen :roll: ...with half my lunch :shock: .

At the weekend: swapped a component (the frame) and transformed the bike from a snapped Inbred to an intact P7, courtesy of that nice Mr. Psling. Thank you, much appreciated :-bd . It's a proper "Trigger's Broom" :lol: . This is the 3rd frame in 10 years; 5th wheelset; 3rd saddle; 3rd handlebar; 2nd...

Re: Bivvy a month 2019

7/7, July done.
Nothing quite so dramatic for me. Local bivi, local woods, warm enough just for down socks, trousers and jacket.
Arrived at 01.30, saw a badger and rabbits, slept until 04.45, rode home.
First outing on the "new-to-me" P7. It's good to be back on an MTB :-bd .
