    the ferries are i think only a few hours but agree with the potential for grim weather in mid wales! though elan valley area is some of the most beautiful in all of wales (on a sunny day!)

    my experience of the kennet avon canal path was very frustrating. so many kissing gates and little bridges and mini detours.

    I'd suggest turning platypus's excellent route into a giant loop by going from Bristol into Wales, across the Brecon Beacons to Fishguard, then ferry to Rosslare and over the Wicklow mountains to Dublin, then ferry to Anglesey and down through Snowdonia, Machynlleth, Elan valley, Black mountains (inc gospel pass) and back to Bristol. So much stunning scenery in Wales!

    Really fancy trying out a Fuji x100. (Always lusted after one)

    I know they're pretty popular on here, anyone thinking of selling?

    ive had the exact opposite problem with these brakes.

    the gap between the (new) pads and the disc is cavernous! could park a whole other bicycle in there. do i need to get some more oil into them?

    Thanks for the SRAM s500 recommendation

    I'm a little confused now... They have an adjuster on the arm that changes the amount it can travel but there's no way to adjust the pads inwards? (Like on cx75 or bb7 etc)

    thanks. any recommendation for a suitable single speed drop bar lever? not sure why the TRP RRLs arent working well. Its like they dont draw enough cable.

    the only way i've got them to work at all is by pre-tensioning the lever arm to bring the pads closer to the rotor and then tightening the brake cable, but this gives very poor braking power indeed.

    what levers are you using with the JuinTech R1s? Ive tried with TRP RRL levers and they feel very spongy with little power. Way worse than the Shimano CX75 I had previously using the same cable and outers!
