Re: How light can you go?

Okay so here is my equivalent list as used on my last tour to Sweden in 2019 -no tour since! weights are as weighed by me as opposed to published mfr weights. Kit is selected not just on weight but on compactness - all this could go in a single Front Roller bag which would add 597g to the load! :D ...

Re: How light can you go?

I always carry to much luggage when touring so this year I have gone for a 1 man Helm 1 compact tent this is more due to pack size than weight, I have all so reduced my panniers to 4 x 12.5 litres hopefully this should reduce the weight I carry and give the bike a nice balance heaviest paniers on t...

Re: Alpkit

We've had various odds and ends from Alpkit back to when they were just starting. Levels of service have always struck me as exemplary and value for money is good too. I have ordered a few bits and pieces from them over the years. My only gripe if any is that their stock levels can be a bit hit and...

Alpkit

Re: Unexpected benefits of Lockdown

I dabble with astronomy; there is a noticeable reduction in aircraft vapour trails, as a consequence the "seeing" appears somewhat cleaner. Looking at "flight radar 24" most of the traffic over the UK is either military or cargo. One small benefit I suppose.
