Re: Woodrup cycles

Wouldn't be the first place I'd think of for accessories and clothing, but they've been building well regarded custom frames for decades.

Re: Hub dynamo comparison

Flange spacing on the SP is somewhat narrow at 50mm versus 62mm for Schmidt. Hence the wheel may not be as resistant to side loading, which may or may not bother you. It could be an issue, but the one Mick mentions appears to be 60mm http://www.sp-dynamo.com/8seriesdynamo%20hub.html Whoops, read th...

Re: Pictures of your tents.

I'm new to this concept of taking photos to show off your tent. It's just a place to pass the night. May help a discussion with other people regarding some features/likes-dislikes/pitching options/etc.? Forums are about discussion and exchange of ideas, not just "showing off" :D Is that w...

If you search for the Alps, rather than specifically Annecy or Chamonix, you will find dozens of threads over the years. In one of your previous threads, I vaguely recall you ...

Re: A Holland-touring newbie seeks wisdom...

Thank you, all, very much. Some really helpful insights there. I was completely oblivious to the possibility of causing offence by calling it 'Holland'!

Re: A Holland-touring newbie seeks wisdom...

I'm not a Holland expert especially as I don't speak the language, but I did that route about ten years ago, and I enjoyed it. Can't advise on current status though. The ride across the Afsluitdijk felt interminable. There's some monument halfway across that seemed to be a pilgrimage site for the Du...

Re: Securing bikes in the back of a (big) car.

I can get two road bikes or two MTBs or a road bike and an MTB, upright or upside down, and only needing to remove the front wheels, into the back of my Jazz. :D
