RSF journal with a photo of the Wayfarer Centenary ride featuring I think our own Bigdummysteve; plus 5xCD Toy Dolls set.

a nordisk oscar 10 sleeping bag

lightweight at 330 g [as light as it gets in synthetic] then for some unfathomable reason they have used metal buckles on the stuff sack so it weighs more than 10 % of the bag ![48 g] it does have an integrated stuff sack so you dont actually need it
why so light on the bag then pointlessly heavy on the sack?

I lovely pair of 29x2.1 Racing Ralph's for my fat 29er. I can't believe they have ever been used.

Cheers Steve.

Are you bearlegged on Instagram? Just looked and they have received exactly the same in the post :smile:

Hopefully my RSF book will be waiting for me when I get home as people keep posting theirs have arrived.

RSF book :grin: even better than I'd imagined it would be. I don't know where they are for Bob's easy way (page 45) but if it's in Wales it's got BB200 written all over it :lol:

BLINKIN' NORA! Own up, who's got my book by mistake!!! I was going to read it in the bath later, now it'll have to be an old Viz annual instead.

Good find that Dave and a good result of that thread I guess. I suppose I'll put that on my 'needs' list as the Borah is a bit slippy and no full proofed... where from you found the older higher rated HH model? Yhanks

A pair of DT Swiss Rims and a 29er tube from wiggle. They suddenly had then in stock and £20 odd quid cheaper than anywhere else so I had to click buy.

A new maxle for my Reba forks. Most of a new drivetrain (cassette, rear mech and chain) for Cath's road bike. Unfortunately it had all worn too much so she also needs the chainrings replacing :roll: They should be here tomorrow.

Quite often think it’s better to ride the drivetrain to deaths and then just replace everything in one hit.

Replaced 105 with the same. Well a longer cage mech to take care of the slightly bigger cassette. The mech was completely shagged - no tension in the spring to keep the chain off the chainstay :shock:

Simon - never sure which is best: full drivetrain destruction or rolling replacement. I've gone two chains per cassette and two cassettes per chainring on my mountain bike.
