Re: Strap obsession

I seem to have developed a minor obsession with straps recently. Obviously it’s partly the fault of Norm and his recommendations, but I do need to check if this is normal - does anyone else spend their evenings scouting the internet for the perfect strap? I wouldn’t mind, but these aren’t even sexy...

Kona Rove ST Deffo For Sale!

Hey up I'm giving up the Kona to look at getting a Bombtrack frame that fits me better. I'm 6ft 1 and I think that the large that it is, is just a bit not large enough... I would be looking for £400.00 (about halfway towards the frame) as I already have some spare wheels and would need to get a grou...

Re: Planning A Route & Finding A Gate...

That road is normally very quiet. A lot of land thereabouts is owned by the Graythwaite Estate; pink "private" signs everywhere. If you're worried, you could always stop 1km to the south, then follow the footpath up towards High Dam, or find somewhere off a bridleway in Grizedale Forest; both are d...

Re: Planning A Route & Finding A Gate...

Pretty sure everyone on here will have jibbed over plenty of gates and bivvied in not strictly legit places. Just try to work out how likely it is that someone might go through it in the morning, and if you can be arsed listening to someone being an arse if they do. Brilliant, Thanks for the input....
