    What are the least terrible looking MTB guards? Have bought a new hardtail which I need to immediately make ugly but functional for the soupy mud

    Ended up returning this endura gilet as the zip started to fray and was impossible to close at home nevermind out on the road. Any other decent insulated gilets that aren't rapha?

    Misplaced confidence more like.

    Glasgow forumites are very lucky to have it on there doorstep, loads of class riding round here. Didn't even get to explore kilpatrick hills.

    Ordered replacement fork for my arkose as fancied having all the mounts. Does anyone need an arkose fork?

    Up @ Whitelee wind farm. This place has miles and miles of perfectly coiffured gravel roads, couldn't see any today as they were completely blanketed in snow. Made for great riding, dropped the pressure down to next to nothing in my tyres and only had one minor slide.

    Highlight was overtaking the piste basher.

    Wasn't sure my tyres (raddlers) would be any good in snow/grav/ice and wished I had pulled my finger out sorted a mtb out with extra thick rubbers. By end of the ride I've convinced myself that I don't need another bike as 45mm tyres and this bike seem to handle almost anything.

    I usually go belts and braces if I know there is a chance of rain and wear my sealskinz socks. I don't find them completely impermeable which I don't expect them to be. I think they let water in abit under the front flap just at the toe box. They do however keep my feet toasty warm, even more so when worn with woolie boolies.

    Aye as I said not smooth. It's nicer going down towards Buxton iirc.

    It's fine I made my gf ride it on her hybrid, she only mildly complained. From memory there is a bunch of smashed up tiles or something near the bottom as you come onto long hill just take care there.v I wouldn't say it was smooth but its definitely doable.

    I'd definitely recommend it but just be wary of the zipper. So odd as surely that's the bit that fails first on these things, you'd think they spend the money on that component.

    Fit wise I went for a large, probably could have went medium for a closer fit but I don't mind it abit looser. I'm 6'2" 80kg ish.

    Ooft that's rough especially if you were aware of it. Yeah I might sack off the rapha 500, forcing myself to go out early when it's icy is lunacy, feel like I pushed my luck today and the weather looks abit shite. That is unless Santa brings me a MTB....he won't.
