Re: Belgians Don't Eate Ketchup

I take it from your somewhat prompt and fervent response you have a penchant for coordinated apparel, are you wearing it now, or is it reserved for the “weekends”? Perhaps the beer you speak of is also Belgian at £4.00 a pint. :shock:

Belgians Don't Eate Ketchup

Opinion Needed Out on my iron donkey this morning for one of my weekly “spin ups”. Chap shot buy on an all carbon job wearing a complete matching outfit, I think his sartorial colour coordinated ensemble was advertising some sort Belgian laundrette; although by admission my French is somewhat limit...

Re: May's ultimatum to Russia

PS: Sergei Skripal is neither a whistle blower nor a dissident. He was apparently a colonel in some part of the Russian military and a spy. That's not to say I think he's fair game for this sort of thing. If there's any long-term damage, it could be to reduce the willingness of others to do the sam...

Re: Jetboil or Trangia

Trangia tip: If you want to eke the fuel out whilst running on meths use the simmer ring. We quite often get into camp first thing out of the panniers is the trangia replete with simmer ring in place. By the time we get the tent up and get generally organised there is the water there for a brew. Als...

Re: Original Spec For Orbit Mercury

Thanks pete75 but I have tried Orbit as it stands at the moment but they have been through so many reincarnations over the years although personable they were unable to help. I think that the wheels are possibly original (but soon to be replaced) and don't appear to have any eccentric dishing but wi...

Original Spec For Orbit Mercury

Any body out there happen to know the original specification for an Orbit Mercury ladies tourer, just in the process of converting it from a butterfly bar to drops with bar end shifters for SWMBO. At present there is an 8 speed cassette fitted but chain alignment seems to be a tadge suspect. Any hel...

Re: Crockery

When on a tour of more than a couple of days it is nice to have a few luxuries, subsequently SWMBO and I tend to carry a plastic plate and bowl each replete with our own individual titanium KFS sets. Although this increases the weight of the overall "package" we are carrying. We also carry...

Re: Fine Idiot Drivers

Send them to the Isle of Wight instead, or better still force them to read back copies of the Daily Mail; the ultimate deterrent. :wink:

Re: The Letter "B"

Dreadful diatribe, doubtfully delivered demonstrating dire deliberation, displaying disagreement deliberately.
