Re: Added memory eTrex 20

Thanks for the replies. The reason I was looking for extra memory was if I look to load up one route and look at the available space there doesn't seem to be a lot. I have only been using it for day rides and Audaxes but was thinking of a two week tour this Summer so was going to load about 20 diffe...

Added memory eTrex 20

I've got a Garmin eTrex 20 and would like to get a larger (than the 4 GB) memory card. I've not bought such a card before and don't know if there is a standard size and compatibility. Does anyone know one that's suitable. This for instance? https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/SanDisk-Ultra-16gb-Micro-SD-SDHC-M...

There have been cases of people contracting CJD in the USA from eating squirrel. But they were eating the brains.

Re: CONDOR Frame/fork/racks EROICA 22" reynolds 531

47 mins later and this bargain remains unsold :shock: I imagine it is the collection issue. It does limit the market. The header has said 'Taken' for over two hours. I live near enough to collect but don't currently have a use for it and would be buying it for the sake of it being a good price. Bet...

Re: CampinGaz adaptor

As I'd been meaning to buy an Edelrid Camping Gaz adaptor but not got around to it your post prompted me. I couldn't find one so I bought these two instead. http://www.mercatorgear.com/index.php/kovea-products-listing/product/28-kovea-adapter-pack-push-and-turn-pat-butane-adapters It should allow me...

Re: Best bike

No . It depends what your commute is like. If you are going 3 miles on a muddy path you will want a different bike from a 20 mile commute on a road and where you are. My current commuter is a singlespeed, even less maintenance than a hub gear, BUT I live in Cambridgeshire, I cross the 10m contour l...

Re: Schwalbe Winter Tyres

I've had mine for 4 years and ride them on my commute whenever it looks likely to have ice on the road/paths.

Not lost a stud and can't see any discernible wear as yet.

Re: Keto Diet and Cycling Fitness

Never followed any diet, just adapt my intake depending on what i'm doing. I'll do more breakfast when i'm doing a big ride, I might just have a coffee other days etc etc. By trial and error I know what to have and how much, I don't need someone else to tell me. I used to work with a compulsive die...

Re: Keto Diet and Cycling Fitness

It's most certainly not the Cambridge diet! That was a near starvation regimen. It's low carb moderate protein, high fat. I'm on it 5y and have my weight down on it for more than 4.5y. Minus 40lb. I got used to it very quickly and have twice done Lejog on it, and had done it heavier, twice before t...

I've been riding for years and my max at this time of year is the same - The cold can really take it out of you! I think the OP is in Thailand so the cold probably isn't affecting them.
