    How does one achieve the trail running equivalent of turning up to a local club ride in the "I spent 20k at Sigma sports" full MAAP/PNS/Rapha/S-works SL7 look? Asking for a friend...

    On a more serious note, I'm doing some slightly longer runs where I need to drink and I want a very minimalist (ie minimally sweaty) pack to hold either squishy bottles or a small bladder, plus a light jacket, a few bars and my keys. Any suggestions?

    Coggers is still pretty savage. Would be preferable to riding up surprise view in a group though.

    Personally would prefer the weekend before, if it’s going to be rescheduled.

    Keen. I’m working nights that weekend but hopefully can swap out of the shifts.

    Just need to sort a bike…

    I’m thinking of buying my dad some kind of watch for his 60th next year. Perhaps a birth year vintage watch. In my vague preliminary searches, I was thinking perhaps a Seamaster, since there seem to be a lot of them around. Any suggestions on how to find a good one, and any other watches to consider? Budget up to £1k, ideally less.

    I think with a car of a certain age, you can pass the MOT with the engine management light on.

    How much do these weigh? Thanks

    As a counterpoint, with some n=1 anecdotal evidence, I’ve commuted for almost 4 years on Gravelking slicks, regularly riding over glass in the cycle lanes, as well as some longer winter road riding in the countryside and light bridleway riding in the summer. I’ve had 3 punctures. One sealed on its own and I plugged the other two with no issues. Eventually replaced the rear because the tread wore out, but it wasn’t excessively cut up when I removed it.

    I’m potentially also after one, if anyone else has one for sale? Not too bothered whether it’s the new OLED one or not.

    Why are these so valuable? My parents have a table like this which was left in their house when they bought it about 20 years ago which they still use. I always assumed it was worthless!
