Re: Glueless Patches

I've been using the Parktool stickers for 5+ years now without issue until I left a bike out, all day in the sun, in the most recent heatwave (30+) - 2 peeled and lifted on the same tyre in the same way at the same time... Must have been the heat?

Yes I do love a durano and the 25 plump to 27-28mm on the 19mm rims so I find they are very comfy.

The "ones" are lots more pricey!

Re: irony of selling a plastic cap from China to highlight climate change

Yes - I think I am more annoyed at myself more than anything for falling into buying a new thingy. I'm usually pretty good and ebay/chazzers. Ah well lesson learned.

lightweight, packable down jacket for exploring?

Need a new one for off the bike colder evenings/camping (although anything a bit more taylored to riding would also be a bonus) - people keep saying the uniqlo is excellent value - but it would be good to hear whats out there on here.
