Re: Any feedback about Hilltrek Kintail Shirt?

Not able to comment on the specific Kintail shirt - but can offer feedback on the single Ventile Greenspot jacket, which one assumes is a different grade/weight of 'Ventile' to the Kintail? https://hilltrek.co.uk/clothing/jackets/greenspot-sv-light-jacket/ if at all helpful? What I do know is dealin...

Re: Bread making

Assuming your have the space, I'd suggest making two loaves at once, and putting one in the freezer until you need it. Saves energy! But use the 1-loaf-a-week regime if you prefer. Thanks Pete for all your help and details, much appreciated :D I only have a small freezer and sometimes there's not e...

Re: Bread making

Advice sought re ongoing sourdough 'regime'. For the last 10 years or so I've only eaten home made bread. Usually 650g variations of wholemeal, strong white, rye and sometimes spelt flours, and normally mixed with up to 200g of sunflower and pumpkin seeds. One loaf lasts approximately a week. Most, ...

Re: 20" aluminium mudguards

Last summer before I sold my TSR, and fancied a pair of these, https://www.cyclesense.co.uk/ quoted me £68 inc postage.

I bought a rear suspension rebuild kit from them previously - and was pleased with their price and service - unlike Fudges :(

Re: shimano cassettes - 7-speed good : 8-speed not so good

5 of my bikes have 8 speed 13-32 custom cassettes. CS-HG50 13-28 7 speed (cheap from Germany) de-rivetted and dismantled + whatever the cheapest Shimano 8 speed cassette happens to be at the time (as long it's silver and has a 32 sprocket.

Re: Increasing cyclist numbers?

My impression is of a large increase in cycling 'roadie' numbers here in Snowdonia over the last 10 years. And it's no longer rare to see solo female 'roadies'. I cycle approx 360 days a year and have done for the last 6 years. Even on a short 7 mile pootle to the nearest village and back am almost ...

Re: Base Layers ... Much Difference Between Them

I wear a cheap merino long sleeve top as a base layer and can confirm it stays stink free for longer! It's true - must admit I found it very hard to believe at first. As long as you are clean before putting it on, you don't need to wash merino that much at all, especially when not doing tough day r...

Re: Parcel Farce

I live at the end of a rough track in the mountains of Snowdonia without any signage for the track nor the 4 inhabited dwellings up at its end! The centre of the postcode is a mile and a half away and there are a lot of other remote properties within it. There is no mobile phone coverage. Mike the P...

Re: Ten Miles a day - 2018

After 5 consecutive years of 10000-12000 miles per annum, I'll just about scrape in with a daily average of 20 this year. Partly due to finding my hill walking legs again and the love of getting away from the ever busier roads of Snowdonia. In previous years there's only been 5 or 6 days when the we...
