Re: Spain Trans-Pyrenees Sept 2017 - Trip Planning and Ride Report

Spares/Repairs/Recovery I’ve thought about this long and hard and the combination of EU location, duration of trip, limited mechanical knowledge and lack of space has lead me to the decision not to carry much on this front. If worst comes to worst I’ll have to ditch the bike and walk till I find so...

Re: Spain Trans-Pyrenees Sept 2017 - Trip Planning and Ride Report

Toolkit I’ll start with the toolkit because this is the most thought through. It needed to be since my mechanical experience is currently lacking. The toolkit has taken a while to put together. I think it strikes the right balance of being able to get myself out of basic/common scenarios whilst sti...

Re: Klim Dakar Pants - Alternative

Not many reviews on the Thor Range Enduro pants to be found: - https://www.usdualsports.com/2014/06/review-thor-range-pants-from-jafrum.html - http://dualsportalchemy.com/2012/03/product-review-thor-range-pants-2/ Waterproof is a nice bonus but hopefully not at the cost of good ventilation. I guess ...

Re: Klim Dakar Pants - Alternative

Revzilla on the face of it looked like the way to go. That is, until you factor in the 22.5% VAT and import duty. As I've never had the opportunity to try a pair on ordering from the US might turn out very expensive if I need to return it. I'll try and find somewhere in the UK that sells the moose r...

Re: Klim Dakar Pants - Alternative

Yeah, I checked their website and even contracted them if I remember correctly because I wanted to try a pair on and they're not to far for me. I'm looking for Black 32" but they only have 30" or 38" in grey.

Klim Dakar Pants - Alternative

Can anyone recommend an alternative to the Klim Dakar Pants (over the boot)? I've been looking at getting some but my size of the old version seems to be out of stock everywhere and whilst the new version is now release Adventure Spec is quoting out of stock until 11th September. I'm heading to Spai...

Re: Kielder K2 Rally 2017
