Re: Ride Suggestions For West Sussex Please

I did the Bosham Circular back in May: https://www.komoot.com/tour/68767867 Great route, which I chose as my other half is a beginner cyclist. It was really flat, a mix of on / off road and you even get a short ferry crossing to boot. The route above may need a slight tweak after Bosham. We ended u...

Ride Suggestions For West Sussex Please

If anybody knows of some nice rides around the West Sussex area that there are GPX files for, ideally fairly quiet routes of either country lanes or gravel rides and not tooooooo many hills between 30 and 60 miles they could share I'd be really interested. I'm based in The Witterings 8 miles south o...

Re: Heavy "ish" Saddle Bag Mounted on Seat Rails ???

The last two links do not work. And bear in mind that you don;t want a lot of weight cantilevered away from the saddle, makes the bike feel funny. Ideally, the closer to the saddle, the better. No surprise why Carradice are still widely used :D Cheers for that much appreciated ... have fixed the li...

Re: Going Tubeless - What Size Tape??

Cheers for everyone's input ... it's much appreciated ... I'll probably use electrical tape to measure as that's pretty easy to get off and the rims will need a good clean afterwards anyway :D

Heavy "ish" Saddle Bag Mounted on Seat Rails ???

I'm looking at a couple of different saddle bag options and was given an Altura Aran 2 as a B'day present which attaches to the seat post as in this pic here https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mailordercycles.com%2Fsmsimg%2F2%2F1568-5790-main-arranexpandingpostrack-2.jpg&imgr...

Re: Going Tubeless - What Size Tape??

How do I know what size tape I need to convert to tubeless ... The rim tape needs to be wide enough to amply cover the spoke holes but not so wide it won't fit inside the rim. The rim tape usually stretches a little and so you can get away with a rim tape a little bit wider than the rim, or you can...

Re: Going Tubeless - What Size Tape??

...Reason for going tubeless .... where we cycle there are a lot of thorns .... You can put sealant in the existing inner tubes to counter that. I know you can but the ones with it already in but the reviews are so mixed it's unreal which kind of put me off trying that option and I'm not adverse to...

Re: Going Tubeless - What Size Tape??

one question are you rims tubeless Specific ? if not then non of the above. No they're not but I thought you could still go tubeless but it was just harder to get a good seal and if the rims were tubeless specific (I guess that's tubeless ready ????? ) then you didn't need any tape / a conversion k...

Going Tubeless - What Size Tape??

How do I know what size tape I need to convert to tubeless ... initially I'm probably going to do my gravel bike which kind of falls in between road bike and MTB in terms of size but if that works well and I like it I'll probably do my 29er as well later on. I've provided 2 links below for Road or M...

Re: Winter Glove Recommendations Please

Just go into your local Aldi. They should still have them in. My local store had the yellow ones shown in your link, and the black ones, which I bought. Have just found these ... are they the ones you mean and what are they like at zero degrees in 15mph winds if so??? They say weatherproof but I re...

Re: Winter Glove Recommendations Please

They also have neoprene gloves for slightly more, but I’ve not tried t??hose. Do you have a link ... I just tried googling and it ca...

Re: Which bike, advice please?

I've just done a load of research / looking into bikes for a friend (as he doesn't know anything about bikes) in the same price range, he had 26" MTB but was struggling to keep up with everybody else riding 29er's and he came out last night for his maiden ride on a new Giant Roam Disc 2 which h...
