Triple Campagnolo Groupset and Wheels - SOLD

These components came from a bike I bought in 2000. It was stripped down in about 2010, and the parts were cleaned for a "future project", but I don't think it is going to happen. Everything was working well when the bike was stripped. The steel parts are a bit corroded or dull, but the al...

Fixed Wheelset/Track Wheels

Ambrosia hubs on black Mavic CXP33 rims. Professionally hand built and great to ride. The rear hub is a flip flop and has a 16 tooth cog on it. With rim tape. Solid axles with track nuts. In excellent condition, but could do with new shiny nuts. £50 and would prefer collection or meetup, North Wales...

Winter Studded Tyres

Almost unused two Schwalbe Snow Stud tyres in 700C * 38. These were fitted and "run in" (to set the studs before they are used in ice/snow) so probably 100km. I ordered them one cold winter, but by the time the supplier had delivered them, (7 weeks), the winter was over. We are moving to P...

Pompino Fixed Wheel frame and Wheels

pompino.jpg I'm having a clear out and have an On-One Pompino fixed wheel frame which is surplus to requirements. Size medium and showing signs of use, although it is by no means a tatty frame. Frame and forks with a new headset £40. I also have a set of wheels to go with it, Mavic aero rims on Amb...

Re: Gas stove or petrol?

Petrol is dangerous. Having seen a couple of incidents with the stuff it would be hard to convince me to give it a try. I've seen more incidents with gas than I have with petrol and even 2 with Trangias. If you follow the correct procedures, then the risks are probably about the same with any of th...

Re: Buffalo clothing and sleep systems.

The Buffalo sleeping system is a difficult one to quantify. I used to have a single bag and always found it quite cold, but adding another layer made it much warmer than I would have expected. It was almost a case of 1 + 1 =3. They do work well in cold wet environments and I designed some for offsho...

Re: Buying petrol for multifuel stove in UK

So much interest in a camping stove! It is the same model as this one https://classiccampstoves.com/threads/monitor-no-1-high-speed.40625/, but the box is "painted" brown inside and out. On that website, there is a list of things to look for in deciding if a Monitor is pre 50s or post 50s....

Re: Buying petrol for multifuel stove in UK

Hi Graham, if you know your old stove was made in 1936 then I assume its a primus 71??? It's a Monitor stove still in the box with original instructions. You'll probably tell me now that Monitors weren't made until the 50's :) My dad said that his mum used to cook on it in Malta when they moved out...

Re: Buying petrol for multifuel stove in UK

When it comes to priming a petrol stove, I always used Optimus priming paste which was "jellified meths" or a piece of Esbit solid fuel. It saves having to carry 2 liquids around with you and they can be used as a heat source on their own. The priming paste is no longer available, but meth...

Re: Anyone dabbled in MYOG?

Yes, I'd like to sew some classic design paniers out of cotton duck cloth. Where could I buy it? Thank you? That and waxed cotton are two of the outdoor fabrics I've steered clear of, but I think that British Millerain in Rochdale are the manufacturers, but whether you can buy it in small quantitie...

Re: Anyone dabbled in Make-Your-Own-Gear ?

I've not shortened a down bag, but have done a couple of synthetics. I have re-stuffed a down bag and it can make a lot of mess; if you aren't careful, you will be finding down around the house for weeks. When I re-stuffed a bag, I put everything inside a large poly bag and did all the manipulation ...
