Vivo barefoot do the job for me, my old pair of fabric topped black ones, with the insoles removed. Roll up to about the size of a normal mug each.

Re: FS: Terra Nova Moonlite Sleeping bag cover

If by any miracle is still going, I'll have it please. And I still need to sort out getting the Alfine wheel(s) from you - surprise Ofsted inspection and 2 exam board deadlines made me pretty much out of communication for the last few weeks, sorry!

Are they the disk version, and have they got the anti-turn washers included? I'm only really after 1 wheel but would take both!

Wanted: 34-50 chainrings

Does anyone have a set of compact road rings, 34-50 or 34-48 going spare? Ideally black, but not too fussy! Can swap for pretty much any other part of a bike or send cash...

Re: Bargain Alert Thread

Only opened the box, and put the first few bits on so far but it looks good. Room for a 40mm tyre in the back with a bit of clearance, and I think you could get about a 2.5 up front so long as it wasn't too tall!
