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?
Just added some photos to here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/oMGpByEcfH5Wht9w8

Interested in the felt frame. You got any more pictures ?

Swap Small Apidura Frame Bag

For a large one and some money?

I'm at the WRT so can arrange something then. Let me know if you have one for me by chance. I ride large bikes, so large would be great :)

Thanks EG... btw (not sure if I'd have anything of interest but) you're also welcome to any of my gear in the meanwhile whilst you get yourself all sorted over the years/years. Remember, by quality and buy once... buy crappy (dont assume that expensive means quality) and keep buying over and over. ...

Hey up So I'm thinking my next bivvy is a solo one. #5 in total, but it's looking like it might be quite chilly. Maybe -4. My bag is rated to -6 but if i was cold, apart from pressups there's nothing I could do. I have a couple of options ; •Use my OEX 7-2 degree bag inside my cumulus 0- -6 as well ...
