You can pick them up for...

Re: Wanted -Skoda Octavia Roofrack/Selling thule 3door Fiesta...

Its for a 3 door car. It moves the attachment points so they can attach to the front of the drivers and passenger doors instead of the rear doors of a 4 door fiesta! It will also fit a 4 door fiesta, you just dont use the short roof adapter. Google some photos and Im sure it will explain it better t...

The rack I have for the fiesta is Thule 774 Rapid System Short Roofline Adapter, 750 Foot pack (Older version of the 754) and 1025 Fitting Kit. The 07 fiesta needs the 1322 kit. It doesnt mention anything about the short...

Re: Dead Leg- Does any one else get this problem?

Have a look at your thigh braces, if they are too tight they can cut off the blood supply to your legs! Have a search on the forum and there are quite a few topics about your problem!

Re: TNP Rapa kayak paddle.

We brought a load for our freshers to use, and they didn't like them one bit!

According to some the blades are not very stiff and the shaft are not very grippy - I would however try them out and see what you think!

Blue Palm Combi Bib Trousers (Medium)

Hey

I have recently brought a dry suit so these are surplus to requirements. Last winter I had the feet and some of the panels replaced due to de-lamination so they are in very good condition and dry! Size Medium.

Looking for £90

Re: Big boat choice

I noticed AS watersports have a Pure sitting outside. It looks solid and the outfiting looks good, it has strange footrests that do up with a seat belt style pulley system.

Re: Wide roof rack?

Hey Darren,

We just brought a Saunders roof rack for our minibus. The bars are bolted on to the feet using u shaped fittings, so any length of bar can be used. They're pritty expensive but they are strong (Free replacement bars if you bend them!).
