Re: Nipples!

I've used them. The specialised tool for use from the outside of the rim is nice, makes building pretty easy. I borrowed the tool from my LBS. When calculating spoke lengths, the DT site allows you to select them, so that will account for nipple/spoke length. I've been running the wheels for a bit o...

Re: Route advice WTD: Inverness to Fort William

The Badger Divide route covers the Ft Augustus to Inverness stretch, isn't super technical, and is pretty direct.

Re: Garmin

Worth noting that Inreach services are currently down.

A bit more serious than not knowing if you've finally beaten your PR on the hill up to the local post office.

Re: Look like a booby trap?

If it's on a public right of way, I'd suggest reporting it to the local ROW officer as a minimum, and potentially the police.

I've seen speculation that either they've forgotten to renew their SSL certificate, or they've suffered a massive hack and/or ransomware attack.

Re: Mitt recommendation?

My preference is for light/no padding (I use gel inserts under the bar tape), towelling on the thumb, and no adjustable wrist closure (I always find the velcro uncomfortable). If your tastes align with mine, you could do a lot worse than consider the Madison "Track" mitt: https://www.madison.cc/shop...

Re: Economical way to lower a bottle cage

I've got one of those Di2 mounts. I find it a faff, and wouldn't recommend them. Those Topeak ones look a much better bet.

Re: Bivvy a month 2020.

A rather enjoyable jaunt for July, with my fell running friend Mr S. He ran, I rode, and we met up at the chosen spot for the night. Dusk was drawing on, and the winged death were out and about.

I've got a drybag that came with the PX/POD bar harness. When laid flat it measures approximately 60*23cm. Any use?

Re: Underwear for riding

garot my nuts, form awfy sharp creases and just generally be a sore, sweaty, wet mess.
There's folk who'll pay good money for that sort of treatment.
