Changed because my username appropriated the name of an ethnic group that I am not related to in any way. The name was chosen because I was reading about the cultures of Siberian people at the time and was in awe of the beauty, spirituality and rugedness of their ways of lives. In hindsight, it was a bad choice for a username.

How tall are you, what sort of riding are you looking to do, drop or flat bars?
If it helps, I'm 6ft and ride a 56 frame. 100mm -17 deg stem (so basically horizontal), drop bars. All day comfort riding position, not too high not too low. And that's v2.0 frame. v4 seem to have shorter reach but higher stack...
Another vote for Exped Synmat. Good value for money, UL ones are very light and still deliver good R value. I like mine rectangular, not tapered, for that freedom of movement (light sleeper and turn many times at night).
Dibs on TS-TA please. Thx
Tiniest pier (a fishing pad?) found here: 51°43'18.0"N 0°00'48.2"W
Fast flowing Lee, in shade on a hot afternoon. Step lightly when getting in, or wear sandals - broken up rocks/rubble, not dangerous but be careful. Nice pebbles further on, and not deep.
Errr my brain is melting right now:) For some unknown reason I just tend to use mm for non-MTB tyre sizes, but yeah I did put 1.6 below just because that is printed on the tyre itself
Gilles Berthoud silver 26" 50mm wide, long, mudguards. Never fitted, they didn't clear 42mm tyres, reckon 35mm is the sweetspot, maybe a 38mm would work.
Continental Contact Speed 26x1.60 tyres, barely used like new.
£15 for the pair SOLD
Schwalbe Big Ben 29x2.00, used but with plenty of life in them. £15 for the pair
I'm in SE4, but may be able to deliver or meetup somewhere. Not posting,

On the topic of WTB tyres^^ - Resolute are amazing. They glide on tarmac, and offroad knobs are spaced out just right for traction in all kinds of conditions.
3000km in some signs of wear, but should last another 1000 at least until noticeable wear begins?
42mm on 23 IW rim measure just over 44mm mind
Hm been synchronising ok for the last 3 days. Maybe this final unpair/pair sequence worked, did a few of those recently. Fingers crossed
