Re: Three Lions Tour: June Chilterns beerpacking

Hello you crazy diamonds...

I've been a little over busy so have only just seen that this was happening.

Looks like you had a great time, I'll be paying more attention from now on so will hopefully catch up at some point.

Re: Castle Quest ITT, Sussex

I often find myself wondering where to go with my bags on.

I'll look forward to this happening, probably not as a whole but a couple of over nighters.

Great job.

Re: Is a Signal Ti preposterous for long trips?

I had a good go on the Signal Ti when trying to decide which HT to go for. If I was to have one bike for everything it would be the Signal. It felt spot on fit wise, loved the geo for the more full on side of things and it rolled/covered ground with ease. The space for big 29'' rubber gives great op...

Re: Dirty Reiver advice

Thanks all.... sounds pretty much what I was expecting. The thinning process at the start should be helpful for not going off too fast. Good point about the feed station, I'll have a stem cell full of my special trail mix that can normally see me through about 60 miles or so. My mate is a sensible g...

I got talked into entering this event a few months back by a mate.... not really my bag but the reason for entering was to go and have my yearly catch up with said mate.

Re: The money no object thread

I've spent a lot of time, effort and money getting the bikes I have to a point I'm happy. That said I am eyeing further changes to the suspension of the Enduro. Why, because it's an integral part of the appeal, I love trying things, gauging the changes and trying to work out the compromises. As Reg ...

Re: How to insert pictures

How'd I get that there ^

I give up... finally get a picture up and the quality is poor... then I can't find how I did it!!! Think I'll stick to riding my bike.

Was going to stick a few pics up and do a mini review but lost the will now.

Actually, super mini review.... the bike is mint.

Ah Pickers that is harsh news.

Sadly I'm not going to make this... the close proximity to Crimbo means I have 'do's' that I have to attend.

I'd much rather be swanning about in the dark with you lot.
