I did that with an old pair of SPD shoes and an old pair of trainers. Surprisingly easy
I think we can close this thread now
This feels like a bit of a hack. I’m kind of semi-fussy about coffee (within reasonably sensible parameters) and getting the water at more or less the right temperature is something that does make a difference. I’ve got a kettle that does it for me at home, but for camping I whacked this little sticker on my mug. Now I can just chuck the water into it and wait till it’s the right temperature rather that guessing. I did consider putting the sticker on the thing I actually boil the water in, but I figured it’s going to get burnt off.
I think that is the one of the most lateral thoughts I have seen in a while, I love it, good job.
Looks horisontal to me
Pardon my stupidity, how does it work?
It involves a bit of juggling: I boil water in the little pot my stove lives in, then I pour the water in to the mug, wait till the coloured indicator is at 85, then pour it back in to the pot, whack the aero press/pour over cone on my mug and then pour. The main thing is that I have something that can tell me what water temp is when I’m camping.
Edit: did you mean literally how does the thermometer work? Yeah magnets. Or midichlorians.
Where did you get it from?
Google is trying to sell me ones for your forehead.
I’m ashamed to say I got it from amazon.

Updated my saddlebag support from an old pannier mount to an old mudguard stay. Seems to support the bag a bit better, without being so rigid.
Not sure if this counts as a hack. I use a Hamax child seat on this bike and the mounting point lives on it.
I spotted a dumped Hamax seat in the woods. Binned the broken seat part and kept the frame bit to use as a handy removable rack. It works well.
Smart. Also, cleaning up after twats who dump broken shit in the woods.
Yeah I got this double worthy feeling: reusing something broken and cleaning up some shit in the woods.
