    Looks roughly like the direct one I knocked up a while back.

    If the wheel is already dished and tension on the NDS is lower then when it gets close I'd maybe add more to it rather than take away from DS depending on how it all looks/feels/measures.

    I'd go half a turn off one side half a turn on the other, probably side of a wheel at a time for ease, until it was in the right place. Dunno the maths to check how much thread you'll need but I'd probably have a look and if the side I'm tightening looks a little short and the other a little long just have a go, if they were both perfect I'm guessing it'll 2-3 turns for 6mm so might be worth trying anyway.

    Longridge Fell is about 45 miles if you take the directish route, which is a lot of canals and bike paths through Bolton and Blackburn, I'm guessing wild camping would be fine near the tree line somewhere and apparently the views are amazing on a clear day, can see the sea, Wales and a bunch of other stuff. I'd planned a longer, hillier route round the side to get there when we stayed at Gaddan's but massive headwinds and fitting it in after work meant we couldn't get there before dark. Canal blast to Todmorden and across would probably be alright too for a different route there/back.

    I find a lever of some kind, usually the 5mm Allen key I'm holding already, passed through the rotor works best for "long" buckles or warped bits that take up about 1/8th of the rotor, gently acts on a larger area. If there's smaller kinks in it then bending from the outside, usually with a small adjustable, is better but they're much harder/impossible to sort out. Don't try and lever fancy icetech ones with alu fins from the inside.

    No point doing that, you'll just have to wait for me at the top of the hills.
