Re: Wtd - Kelly Kettle

I've got one I've not used in years. It's one of the bigguns.

Where are you based? I'm in Surrey but could post.

Do you want to msg me and I'll go find it to take some pics.

Re: Is a Signal Ti preposterous for long trips?

Dunno about the Signal but.... I've done bike parks and bike packing on my Stanton Sherpa and that comes in Ti flavour. Honestly the best bike I've ever owned.

Re: Suggest a drop bar MTB frame?

Cheers for that. Couple of questions... Not sure on sizing? I'm just shy of 6ft, normally 54cm road bike. I suspect large will be too large. I see its 1x, assume being CF it would have to stay 1x? I.E. can't just clamp a front derailleur on? Kevin I'm just over 6' and it was slightly too short for ...

Any Boners riding this year? I'll be there for my 4th installment.

Say hi if you see me. Most likely on a grey rigid Stanton Sherpa this year. My mate will be on a Fargo.

Looking forward to some goat stew...

Re: Bladder in frame bag

Yes i use one in a half frame bag. It's and osprey one that has a magnet near the mouthpiece that sticks to the handlebar.

It's not super convenient as the tube is a bit short and i have to stop looking ahead to drink, but it's more fun than 2.5 litres on my back.

Pictures don't seem to be working. I've been idly wondering about a lightweight 29er, so could be interested in the Flyxii. Whereabouts are you based?

Selling a chinese carbon Flyxii 202 frame in large. Used with some scuffs but otherwise all good. Comes with headset, crown race, stem cap, and seat clamp. It's a BSA threaded bottom bracket. Internal cable routes are sheathed so very easy to build up. I've left the rear brake in in case the buyer w...

wtd. 29+ front wheel (non-boost) or 35-40mm 29er rim

Looking to go 29+ up front only as the rear won't take it.

Ideally a 40mm rim but could go 5mm either way.

Alternatively just the rim and I'll build it up myself.

Thanks!
