How many takers for a ride tonight? I start the bidding at 1!
I see Histon is on the list, sounds good to me.
Yes, on my half assed tubeless tyre (I've only tried one!), I will be out
The forum keeps chucking out my post replies as spam.
Anyway, I may or may not be out tonight, but what I really wanted to say was latex tubes are as good as tubeless (or better) in my opinion.
I didn't get on with latex tubes, I still got punctures, and them half deflating all the time was annoying. Do they stop pinch flats, as I seem to be the queen of pinch flats every time I go somewhere with a few rocks.
Where do you go that has rocks? The Alps?
The Lakes and Afan were both rocky enough to give me several pinch flats. Admittedly this was my fault as I was running a Racing Ralph on the back.
As i'm back from my altitude training in Kenya...i should be out tonight....if i can find some charged lights!
Since it's the Red Lion beer festival and I won't be out, I'll be out later for some beer.
Will it be a short ride and early arrival - subject to Claire's punctures?
Can't think why the forum thinks Mark T is responsible for posting rubbish.
Dammit - the one ride that ends up near my house and I've got a dodgy knee.
I might hobble along for a beer later on though.
Planning to be out. Hope we get to the Red Lion early
I'm also riding to the Red Lion beer festival (via Brookside)
i'm planning to come out for a ride tonight and i may have a drink or two.
Me too - I think we should aim for 9 pm at the pub if we can. (My attempts at leading last year's ride to arrive at 9 pm failed miserably.)
See you tonight. How will I recognise Mark, though?
I'll be there - following this year's summer expedition to the S of France :-)
Topic for discussion:
I've had my commuting bike 1/2 inched (Cube Hooper Pro). I'm currently hot on a Roadrat to replace it, but i've got Billy's looking at a sub-£1000 Surly Straggler build. (so it comes in under the c2w scheme).
what bike purchasing opportunity am I overlooking ?
I'm going to try and come along work permitting.
Wow! Will this be a record for this year? Alison and I will both be out (for the first time in about three and a half months) so I make it 13 or 14 riding so far, with another couple joining us at the pub. We better check they'll have enough beer!
What an excellent evenings weather for riding, and drinking ales outside. After extolling the virtues of latex tubes imagine my embarrassment to find a flat rear on emerging from the pub. Yes, a thorn straight through . Got home ok on the spare but inflating it was tiresome without gas........😠
Tallack, I hope you're reading this!
I had plenty of gas after the beer and that pork pie...
As regards tubeless or latex, I'm very happy with my latex, especially at the weekends. I'll have a go at tubeless when I get around to it.
