Three Dawg's wee comment reminded me of this wee utube video
Alpkit are opening a shop "in Edinburgh".
No info on where or how soon but it's a live/current project.
I have a notion I posted a link to a test that someone did on Tent Peg insertion/strength some time ago but this link is to a new test.
The Mannie's style is a wee bit dry imho but all credit to him for doing the work and creating the video.
I think the content is useful.
Andy, you are clearly on the case and obviously not feeling tooooo stiff !
I wouldn't try parking it like that on Skye , even if it did get the best background.
Hola, to you two too.
P.S. I like that rear wheel pic.
Suggestive of something rufty tufty about to happen !
The pannier certainly seems to be mounted very "correctly" and square to the bike !
Doesn't look like one is going to happen this year 😟😟😤😬😬!!.
Into November and the weather is still being kind but other factors are at work.
Me , I am stocking up on Fly Tying stuff and plan to tie lots of flees.
and today's offering
The Black Devon making its way around the Tower Brae and down to the Forth.
It was called the Black Devon for the perhaps obvious reason that it was black with coal stour and that distinguished it from the other Devon , identified by Burns as The Clear Winding Devon.
The Keeper's Bridge, over the Black Devon , which funnily enough leads to the "Keeper's" cottage which has not a had keeper living in it for many a long year.
note the rather meagre height of the "parapet" ---- no fol-de -rols or builders flourishes !
one from last week and one from today
Lock 16 on the Union Canal with the Union Inn just behind
Tower house and Church with a distant Dumyat in the background.
ah, another Steve.
Hello and enjoy the blethers.
Bruce, good job again.
Three Dawg, When I had the Tiger I bought a pair of Moto Skiveez and initially thought they gave a bit of added plushness. Eventually though I decided the padding felt constricticting and uncomfortable. Consigned to "back of the drawer"
When the GT came along I tried them again -and if any seat would have benefited the GT OEM would but alas they were no help.
It did get me thinking about shorts again thoughj.
I took a pair of cycling shorts and cut out the padding. Long legs and high back now seem gto me to be the way to go.
I have now worn the padless cycle shorts a few times and i Do like them. Base layer tucks in and has no chance of easing up and the long legs do feel comfy on the bike.
i forgot you said you were back to work.
It certainly got s response on that other forum -38pages.
Good to see that it didn't just wither on the vine but is being developed.
Neither does Brex but he likes taking things apart !
And putting them back together again !🤸🤸👍👍
Ah ,the age of the phone !
Personally I miss the full size plate and my man with a donkey carrying them ,!
Mind post loads of foties.🌞
I have bought an Indridason for my dearest to introduce a new Author to her.
I bought a couple of Danny Baker's to while away a wet November day !
Steve, have you got your eye on that old sign ?
I trust you missed the worst of the NE dampness ?
