    I'm hoping so! After this weekend I'll just be focusing on doing 4/5 rides at a time rather than big epics I think unless I find that I need to tweak my set up more

    I'd be happy with that. My only ambition is to make the finishers party.

    I'm hoping that the relatively flat terrain after cp3(minus the transfaragasan) will work in my favour being a heavier rider

    Haha, thanks! Probably should have trained more... Done about 5,000km this year.

    How are the resolutes in the wet/mud? Thinking about them for an all round gravel/dirt tyre but it is quite rainy up here so want to make sure they're ok in all situations.

    Should have mentioned the silk liner also.

    Testing planned for this weekend - will see how I get on in Scotland without the sleeping bag - but will have the bag with me in case I get cold.

    Got offered trade price of RAB bivvy and bag, and already own a rapha brevet insulated jacket. I sleep pretty warm generally and don't anticipate getting that cold at night in Europe, so won't take the bag.

    Fairly sure that a bivvy, a mat and the jacket will be enough. Will bring a warm beanie for me head, just in case.

    Presumably to scare off the dogs, rather than to treat the wounds...

    I was quoted 3 weeks for a course of rabies jabs - but after having read more about it, seems like I'm not gonna be too far from help in the case of a dog bite anyway. I'll take a wee vial of iodine with me I guess.

    Anyone getting rabies shots?

    Want to change my Praxis cranks from 175 to 170. Have 175 on the bike at the moment. Do I need any special tools to switch the cranks?

    This seems to indicate that I only need a 8mm hex key so long as the BB stays in the frame (which it will)
