Re: Water Bottle with Filter and Cap - recommendations

Have a look for Travel Tap at www.drinksafe-systems.co.uk. I have their micro purification water filter bottle; believe they may have offers on now though website not the easiest if IRC. I think that is what you are after.

Re: Lightweight Sleeping Bag suggestions

I have several PHD bags, can’t fault them. Really good company who’ll provide what you need, give them a call, strongly recommended.

Re: Sabbath September

Graham, very happy with mine, will do light touring just fine with rear rack & panniers/rack bag or just decent sized saddlebag.

Re: TRP Spyre Vs Avid BB7 mechanical disc brakes

BB7 work well with 105 STIs, both double and triple 10 speed IME. NB, make sure you get the road version, not the MTB ones.

Re: Healthy drinking bottle.

Try Elite Corsa MTB or their Iceberg, both have protective caps that work well on my cross and MTB, the latter is also very useful on winter rides to keep your water from getting too cold.

Re: Secula light - seatpost to mudguard mount

I have the mudguard version, it is shaped to fit onto the rear mudguard and uses a nut and bolt to secure it. I can’t see how it can have the same back as the seat post version so I suspect they are different models. SJS certainly sell them. I'm a trendy consumer. Just look at my wobbly bog brush us...

Re: Carradice saddlebag sizes

My Pendle is just over 30cm internally so it won’t take your pump. Maybe as Brucey suggests, buy a pump to fit the bag you’d like?

Re: Seasucker roof rack - anyone used one?

I’ve had one for about 18 months and it is really easy to use. Very quick to set up and mount the bike onto it. I’ve never taken it over 60mph as we’ve always used it with the horse trailer attached. Check the roof of your car doesn’t have ridges that might prevent the suction pads working. Only sli...

Re: Ti Audax frame recommendations...

I’m very happy with my September, an absolute joy over any distance. Meets your requirements in terms of spec, not sure on your geometry detail but their website has the relevant facts. Haven’t tried the others so I can’t compare, I do have a sister made bike to Van Nic (defunct US only brand called...

Re: What CX Bike Models do you know?

Kinesis Crosslight 5T Disc is superb for what you want, takes mudguards, panniers, 2 water bottles. I use mine for my 18 mile commute and have no worries about stripping it down to hit the mud either. I also did the C2C on its better cousin, the Pro 6 Disc, very comfortable for hours in the saddle a...

Re: Tent recommendations - is what I have overkill?

+1 re Big Agnes in the UK. I've a Copper Spur, lovely tent for hot places, too airy for here. I'm a Terra Nova for the UK man myself. Shuggie
