Re: Base Layers

I've got a mixture of base layers, everything from £4.99 at Decathlon to £120 worth of yak wool. They're all fine, however I do prefer the wool options, they don't stink so you can wear them for days without washing, the synthetic can pong (I bicycle rather than motorcycle commute these days). The b...

Re: Will it be cancelled?

Hopefully IT will continue even if we reach a pandemic - they can remote access while self isolating ;)

Re: Electric MTB

A bought a 2019 Turbo Levo HT back in Nov, now I've moved to Brighton it's taken the place of the motorbike for commuting. If you've never ridden one up a hill you're in for a treat. Game changer. The distance you get on the battery has a tonne of variables, your weight, the mode you're riding in bu...

Re: Wales

What I love about Wales, whether you ride it in a few hours or a week, it's still a pleasure. I prefer linking the b & single track together but there are some stonking A roads when the speed urge takes over. I didn't go in 2019 so need to rectify that in 2020, I usually do at least 2 - 3 trips a ye...

Re: Huel Discount code wanted

Hey monster, You get a 10% discount if you sign up for the subscription which you can always cancel if you don't like it. I may have a discount introduction card but it's probably been recycled. Alternately any of the youtube reviewers have a discount code active (which is what I originally did) but...

Re: Zero Review

I demo the Fxs last year & really enjoyed it (nothing boring about them). Apart from pretty hard suspension I thought it excellent. I didn't buy it for 2 reasons.....cost, but mainly range. My daily commute is a bit less than yours & a charge would have just about made it through, but if I needed it...

Thedktor & other interested parties After breaking numerous leads or losing the controller on my AlpineStars heated vest 3 years ago I bought an avade heated top. Lithium battery operated, power switch on the wrist cuff. Not cheap but it is a fantastic bit of kit, has it's niggles & riding at -2 you...

Re: The next step....

I'm hoping the muscle memory is still there. I rode only bicycles until 13 years ago, when I moved from London to Surrey, but when I had to come back in most weekdays I bought my first motorbike. I used to happily commute a round trip of 35 miles along towpaths to college & would always cycle into c...

Re: The next step....

Thats exactly what I picked up today garyboy, except if you buy it from a Specialized store its £1800. I'm pleased, I haven't ridden a bicycle properly in about a decade, 8 mile journey back to work & I could still walk & talk :lol: I'm going to potter with it for the rest of the week & if all goes ...

Re: The next step....

Thank you for the replies gents, Ive had a Pro Rockhopper for 14 years & it's been a solid piece of kit. I had a look at a Giant but it didn't appear to offer anything over the Levo apart from an extra £900. I would love the full suspension but I don't need it & it's considerably more expensive. It ...
