It seems sorted, before coming up with something even betterer I was thinking of using that setup.Posted 3 years ago
having said that, it seems something to speed up production more than a benefit to the end user
have a look here, some good info.[video]http://vimeo.com/36255331[/video]jamesoSubscriber
I’m a fan of the webbing ladder idea. Works better for varying pack density or stuffed-ness than normal straps ime. Frame tubes tend to be narrower than the bags so the logic works. Its more adaptable if using a half frame bag on more than one bike or combining attachment points of gas tank qnd frame bag.Posted 3 years agoCheezpleezSubscriber
I used the webbing ladder idea on my DIY seat pack and bar harness (posted on a previous page up there ^^) and have been really pleased with the extra adjustability it gives. Didn’t bother on my frame age as they were designed for specific frames and I couldn’t see the benefit.
I’m using a home made Coke can meths burner and windshield, which I’m really pleased with. Seems to boil a mug of water at least as quick as my mates’ gas stoves. Alpkit Mytimug nests in the windshield and stove, lighter and washing up scourer plus a plastic mug live inside the mug.
I’ve added some air/vent holes since this pic.Posted 3 years agosomafunkSubscriber
For cooking duties i have a choice of a Vargo Titanium wood burning stove, a mini crux folding stove usually with a 100g cartridge, and a triad meth burner/esbit stove so dependant on where i’m going along with weather conditions i tend to mix and match.
The only pot i use is the Titan kettle , and i use a pot cosy – sometimes i also take my Ti mug as i can use that as a secondary cooking vessel or just use it as a mug for a brew as i wait for my pot cosy and titan pot to cook my tea.
Once you get started it’s all to easy to go mad with the kit 😀Posted 3 years agoacehtnMember
Only got 3 gas lamps, and 4 or 5 burners knocking about, and several pan sets from Alu to copper plated stainless, enameled steel to Ti.
If i was starting out from new, Ti Alpkit pan set, and a MSR/Alpkit/Ti burner and battery headtorch….. mostly stuff that wasn’t available years ago 🙂
2 trianga burners in the workshop, soooo tempted to get a burner and try one out 🙂 the boss aquired some stainless tubing to make a wood gas stove (his triangas) a coleman multifuel is knocking about as well.Posted 3 years ago
Boss went for a vango knockoff of a MSR pocket rocket, loves it 🙂matt_outandaboutSubscriber
I still use cheapo gas stove and old home made tin foil windshield. It has worked well for a couple of decades…
But is also now have 6g titanium esbit stove and windshield. Not perfect (dirty, in really cold weather I have to shelter it really well from wind), but for a quick overnight, with a cheap it mug it is perfect and silly light.
The bag the stove came in weighs more than the stove btw.Posted 3 years ago
