    Have you put a 8/9/10 speed cassette on it? You might be missing the spacer that goes on the freehub before the cassette.

    Thanks, looks like a good alternative. I can get a bit of a deal on MSR but the metal fuel pump, simmer control and no need to change components/jets when switching fuels on the Primus make it a tempting option.

    I’m currently looking at the Whisperlite Universal which can use gas cans when available and liquid fuel when it’s not.

    Planning on going to a few places where gas definitely won’t be available.

    Good to know the pump easy to remove and store separately, does any residual fuel evaporate off before you pack it away?

    I've never had a liquid fuel stove before and have visions of everything in my bag smelling of fuel.

    Where do people store their fuel bottles for a MSR Whisperlite?

    My current thinking is to have a bigger bottle with a screw cap (for extra fuel) in the under BB bottle cage but I don't know where the 600ml bottle with the fuel pump should go.

    Do people leave the pump attached to the bottle? Is this too fragile to have in a bottle cage? I'm worried that the pump will get damaged if it's exposed.

    Having the fuel bottle and pump inside a bag seems risky, having a fuel leak inside a bag would be fairly catastrophic.

    How long? PDW do a longer than normal version, it’s not super long though

    Try going to one of the shops if you’re in London or Manchester, you should be able to call ahead and check if they have stock.

    Thanks both, good to know this is possible.

    Can you also get the ride data off and upload to Strava?

    The Micro SD card could be an easy way to do it but I've never had a phone with a card slot so have no idea on how this works in practice.

    I got my Touring in 2015 and it's worked pretty well, the turn by turn is good when it works but often glitches (especially on out and back routes) and doesn't think you've done a certain direction so the instructions never progress beyond that point. It's easy enough to follow the line on the map without all the directions when this happens.

    Some of that could be the route files / map set I'm using or it could just be a buggy Garmin.

    The on-board point to point routing is terrible, it creates very convoluted routes that don't make sense.
