    If they aren't dry the next day, put on wet socks and you won't be able to tell. Problem solved.

    I accidentally came across the #4 route (which I'll keep secret as the SE group prefers) but saw it's 10k feet of serious off-road climbing. Well out of my league.

    Yeah fingers crossed!

    I'm putting all my currently amassed brownie points into the second Offroad Escapade on the 30th of March if you (or other badgers) are keen?

    I have a track bike and a thru axle disc brake bike. I have some spare ultegra skewers going tho?

    I think the biggest benefit of TAs with disc brakes is mitigating all the fucking rubbing and mis-alignment with QRs. You (hopefully) won't be taking the wheels off and and all the time, but you will be putting a lot of flex and punishment on the wheels, so the strength of the TAs will hopefully keep them quiet when you're bouncing around off road.

    I mean I like the sound of that, but it seems the long way round to get there. Plus I'm not really up for drilling. I think either the Di2 under the TT or a wrap around @gillies is right, I think there should be space under the frame pump as the pump contact points are very near the joints and with my Zefal there is a nice amount of room between the pump and TT. Maybe @gillies pictures and my experimentation will help you decide....

    easy switching road and CX wheels was my dream ever since I started riding CX/gravel

    This too is my dream....

    Ah if it's not your size then probably good to get something with a clutched rear mech with the gravel and CXing you're doing
