Re: Sport only travel insurance

I read that bit too, but I'm pretty sure they mark the activities in two ways. One as you mentioned above (marked with an asterisk), the other (which includes kayaking) is marked with a triangle with just specifies that it doesn't cover anything off shore. Via ferrata for example is marked with an a...

Are the large ones that big? Or better off going with the medium where I am in the middle of the weigh...

Anyone else ever had this? White fluff in cag.

Just pulled my cag out of the cupboard, and as I pulled it out loads of what I thought was feathers started falling out from between the outer layer and the deck tube. Turns out its a very fine white fluff that disintegrates when you touch it. I always dry it before putting it away. Was it mould? Sp...

I haven't used it in anger yet but my new Lomo knife is looking good, sharp and serrated blade and a few possible attachments to BA. Good locking mechanism on sheath too. And it's only £12.50!

Re: VE Glass blades

Awesome. Great to see so many good reviews. Think my mind has been made up!
Always had Werners in the past but saw these and fancied a change, was drawn to the carbon crank shaft with glass blades.

What sort of shaft most of you using?

Re: FS: Werner Sidekick - Carbon - Cranked

I have just done a bit of Googling and Paisley Freight have a specific option for sending a paddle. Costs £15.

The insurance to cover against loss/breakages upto £250 is £12.99. So £27.99 fully insured.

But I would be happy to post if you are okay with this?

Looking at shifting on my Fluid Solo M in green Had it for a few years and it's seen a bit of action. Took it out to the Alps this year and split it twice; once under the front of the seat and once under the rear. Both have been welded (one slightly more aesthetic than the other) inside and out, and...

Re: Tired of normal gopro super wide angles? Check this out

What is the mounting system like? I had a Tachyon a while ago and it was great but was let down by the mounting system. Also is the lense rotatable? Not a huge problem with kayaking, but with mountain biking its useful if you can turn the lense round allowing you to mount the camera at any angle. Do...

Anyone use a Transit Connect as a paddle wagon?

Thinking of getting a Transit Connect (The LWB high roof version) whenever my car decides to die. Are they any good? Big enough to sleep in the back? I'd be looking at putting in a removable sort of raised platform as a bed so I have the option of taking it out to put bikes in. Is the 90 HP version ...
