Re: Found - Twenty Quid

Years ago before coming back to Wales, to live and bask forever in baradws (Snowdonia), whilst staying at what was then a ‘funky’ pre refurb Bryn Tyrch Inn in Capel Curig for a couple of nights midweek. I’d been out walking with a new exciting beautiful girlfriend up Moel Siabod on a really grand la...

Re: durace 9 speed bar end shifters.

This post isn't at all helpful :( I've got two more new/spare sets of 8 speed Shimano SL-BS64 levers as well as 3 current bikes with older (one set is 7 years old and going strong) ones. Both new sets bought from Ribble a couple of years ago as back ups for a ridiculous cheap price - new, not boxed,...

Re: Trends in windy days

Well I disagree with that. I live not so far away. Nearer to the coast which is drier than the mountain massive. My observation and records show notably Nantgwtnant to be windier over the last few years - given that I cycle most days of the year. Even Porthmadog sometimes sees greater wind speeds, ...

Re: Trends in windy days

It definitely is here in my part of Snowdonia. I've kept a daily record of my cycling over the last 5 or so years (average cycling days per year 354) and always logged whether it was benign, breezy, windy, gales or too dangerous to cycle. Last year and this year there are large increases in windines...

Re: Oakley M Frame Carbon effect + 7 lenses

Hi John, there's the odd light mark on some of the lenses commensurate with use of plastic, but nothing that ever annoyed me when wearing them. I'd say they were in good condition but not A1, as that implies as new. Hopefully they're priced accordingly? You're more than welcome to try them 'on appro...

Re: Can anyone recommend to me a breathable, brightly coloured & reflective waterproof jacket?

As you say, it's a very personal thing. I bought a red Gore Bike Wear 'JGPATH' model Paclite jacket at lease 9 years ago. Very light due to not having a separate mesh liner. Fitted me like a glove even though it's a SMALL and I'm a 37" chest, which suggests their guide is a bit peculiar. It's n...

Peel them off completely? They're only logos which may or may not impress your mates or thieves? :lol:

Re: Can anyone recommend to me a breathable, brightly coloured & reflective waterproof jacket?

Hi julk, Jamesh, Mike & NUKe, The Paramo Men's Quito Jacket - the colour of the yellow hi vis one is good but it says that the jacket weighs 500g and to me I worry that this might be a bit thick/ heavyweight and it could lead to me overheating. It also has a hood and when cycling I wouldn't use...
