Re: Carbon Seat Posts

I have had the alloy top of a carbon post fail in the bonding on the last WRT. It meant that my saddle could spin 360 degrees on the post. not helpful with a 17l pack on. That was th ed Carbon Kinesis post for ref. Lucky for me there was a bike shop within 10miles so i could buy a cheap alloy one.

Re: Kinesis Tripster

If its a Ti one, be weary, i have snapped two of the Racelight Ti's. The new one is now made in a different factory so hopfully will be better quality. But buy second hand Ti, and it snaps you have no warranty to fall back on. The new ones now have a 5yr warranty over the old one which was 3 years.

Did a night ride and tested new Shimano MW7 Goretex boots. Very impressed, feel super comfy - like slippers and very warm and dry.

Moist https://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/2656311 Beyond moist. The Norgies are saying 65 mm of rain for Dolgellau between now and the start, and 31 mm of rain during the event. :| Even by Welsh standards, that’s a lot. But it’s the same for everyone, so just put head down and get on with it :-bd Edit: o...

Re: Bb200 Waffle Thread.

I've just swapped out my 2.5 DHF for a WTB ranger 2.8. looks similar tread pattern to the Rocket Ron.

On another note...anyone know if there are showers we can use at the finish or should i expect no luxury like that whatsoever, and resort to babywipe bath / dip in the nearest river.

Re: What you done t' your bike today

Switched out the 2.6 DHF front and rear for a faster rolling WTB Ranger 2.8. Fitted bike bags and sleeping bag and made a huge list of stuff to pack. Also stripped my Crank Bros Msllet pedals and packed with grease, fitted new chain and oiled! Ordered some new Shimano MW7 boots for delivery tomorrow...

Re: BB200 route on the way.

When i spoke to exposure they said if you do this test, run a fan over them to simulate air flow. They are designed to be run with airflow to cool them.
