Re: Tent for Brompton

The MSR Hubba Tour tents seem to leak like sieves. Not waterproof. Avoid. . Would you care to elaborate? Does it leak through the seams, the fabric, the groundsheet? Just interested as I was slightly tempted at the price Cotswold are selling them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Ah9TP7Qlxg&t=1...

Re: Is there any treatment to prevent mud sticking inside mudguards?

This is exactly the issue I was trying to address when I sprayed the underside of the guards with silicon shine but I'm afraid it made no discernible difference.

Re: Is there any treatment to prevent mud sticking inside mudguards?

Re: Twenty a day for 2020?

Glad to hear you are still managing to get out foxyrider.
As you say the weather has been great, the roads are quieter and most of my rides are local anyway (I'm on the Isle of Wight). 1050 miles for the month, making 2937 miles for the year so far.

Re: Claire Balding's Bike

Re: Coronavirus cafes

Pee stop was down a quiet side lane (so I thought) except 2 walkers were on the lane and then 2 cars passed (a road to nowhere) before I had a bit of peace... at least more leaves are appearing on the trees....

Re: Coronavirus cafes

Lovely lunch stop on my favourite bench by Newtown creek yesterday watching a gleaming white Little Egret which was reflected perfectly in the still water. Bliss!

I've never had any unwanted dings from mine either, though I never go fast downhill!
