I doubt that your damp problem is caused by the mixing of different materials.
There could be many different reasons for it.
But that is not one I've heard of.
Good luck steve. Hopefully this doesn't set him back too far. 3 days rest is about 600 miles for this beast.
He's invested so much time and effort and has been doing the record in far more challenging conditions then Kurt. In the spirit of godwins record.
I really hope he does it.
It's not rot but more wear and tear. That area is nearly always a high friction area.
And it can be repaired. Nudie jeans in Soho have a darning machine and I've seen repair much worse. Almost seamlessly.
That will be too deep for polyfila just get some mortar and it should be fine.
Hard to tell how deep it from the pic. Most builder would use grip fill or expanding foam if the client is not present. And skim it jobs a gooden mate.
Thermal work gloves are my choice when dry but cold.
Plenty of grip and control and nice and warm
Looks like a very fun ride.glws
Really hope Steve's doing well. He's website is not great and I'm not on Strava. Is he on track?
I can't even bothered to walk let alone cycle any where right now, let alone the mamouth mileage he's churning out. Steve I salute your galant efforts.
Rourke decals always help.
Although reynolds tubes are slightly lighter then the columbus equivalent. Many people say that tubesets like columbus sl have better quality of ride, some of them (Not sure which ones) have spiral pattern inside if that even does anything....?
Glad it finally arrived... need to order bits too but it's no rush. So I'll hit the trigger.
Wish me luck.
What is with these Germans can they not get along. This like Adidas and puma all over.
