    Hey @Jon. When do you want it? Happy waiting until May?

    I'v got an XL Krampus, 2015 I think, Green. It doesn't have mounts on the forks, so not optimum bikepacker, but plenty of fun, and plenty capable. And I've strapped a few day's worth of supplies to it without much trouble.

    I'm looking at getting something different in the spring, and would happy to part with it for £550. Unfortunately, I'm in the Switzerland, and the Krampus and me will be here till end of April.

    I'll find photos and check the size (it might be an L) if you're interested. Or anyone else, for that matter.

    I'm in Manchester from the 4th - 8th October. Just thought I'd see if anyone's got a beater to lend me for the weekend?

    I'm 6'1"/ 186cm, will bring a D lock, lights, etc. I'll be doing less than 10km a day, so will consider anything.

    I'm happy to give you some moneys, and leave a deposit if needs be.

    I'll take the Truvativ crankset if it's still available. PM on it's way...

    Hey, How tall are you? I'm thinking it'll be too small for me too, but looks perfect for my needs. And I'm not too far from Peckham.

    Thanks for the heads up. That's certainly tempting. I went to the Jolly Pumpkin pub in Ann Arbor last year with the intention of trying various things. I just had glass after glass of Bam Biere. I love that beer so much. I didn't have anything else all night.

    So there's a good chance I will be there tonight, just smashing Bam Biere...

    Sure thing, I'll take it off your hands. I'm sure it'll only take me a few weeks before a calamitous incident occurs, reminds me that I don't have the co-ordination or the testicles for such tomfoolery, and it will be back on here soon enough.
    PM on it's way.

    Awesome. So as long as I have a 68mm BB shell, and a 73mm crank, I should have a bit of room for manouvre for a wider chainline? Thanks, that makes sense.

    Did you go for a double, or a triple and just use the outer rings? The build that I'm emulating has an inside chainring stuck on the outside of the crank, which narrowed the gap between the 2 chainlines. Did you get up to similar witchcraft? `Not sure if the same game can be played with MTB parts. I've had a look at chainrings, I think I can get what I need, ratio-wise. The only truvative chranks I can find are 175mm, but cheaps, so I will probably venture down that path.

    More searching needed. My poor computer is struggling with my feeble google skills and clueless crankset knowledge. I had over 70 tabs open on my browser earlier, a clear sign that I have as good a grasp on this as Peter O'Hanraha-Hanrahan has on political journalism.

    The hunt continues...

    That's OK. One day I'll forgive you.
