A 24" islabikes carbon hubbed front wheel to go on the tiny Kona hula I'm doing up for my daughter.

Some 152mm cranks and bright orange BMX pedals, also for the above Kona.

Interested hear how you get along with it. Use mine on every trip now. Packs small with an elastic band round it. I find it's easier to use than a schnozz, and it's comfier than a basic inflatable.

It was a few days ago but got a Gatewood Cape sized pole from Stu last week in double-quick time, a little extender to allow me to discover, all for myself, that he was entirely correct and the original pole height is all I will ever need :wink:

Excellent, generous and rapid service. Lovely bloke :cool:

Also a couple of metres each of tyvek and t'other one (permavent?) - remind me again is there something about which side to use, when etc? I've just been using some old section of plastic sheet until now. I recall it's work washing the Tyvek (or both) to reduce inherent slippiness.

... and delivered an Alpkit barrel bag. I feel like a proper Gravel Taylor now. Time to go for a short spin to test it out, I will not be dangling a mug, or wearing a checked shirt, but I am sporting a beard.

The grey side with Dupont written on it goes face down. At least that's the side that faces out when you slap it on a house...

Taking poor Taylor's name in vain - what has the poor chap done to deserve that moniker?

Either side up. If you wash Tyvek it'll soften it and make it feel less 'wax papery'.

No. From the Alpkit website:
Due to its stitched construction, the Toploader isn’t 100% watertight so we would still recommend storing electronics in a waterproof dry bag. But thanks to the VX21 fabric and the YKK Aquaguard zip it’s still exceptionally weather-proof.
