    what happens if you dont have that adaptor with you out in the wilds?

    @howsyourdad1 You only need the adaptor for screw on pumps. So, take a push on pump with you?

    Assuming you actually need it for your pump,
    I guess the same thing as if you didn’t take your pump, chain tool, kitchen sink etc with you and suddenly had an urge to wash up, get to the mid ride pub and realise you left your method of payment at home etc etc.

    You feel foolish, curse a lot and walk home.

    I see. You are presuming I take my own pump 😁

    Oh, in that case I imagine exactly the same thing as if you had the adapter, you’ll be exercising your lungs a bit.

    @blackflag its the original line up, but with a new Tom Byker replacing Tony Byker, as Tony was looking at covid transport troubles getting in from Japan and home again. Mary Byker arrived on a carbon road bike… I had a word.

    @dangeourbrain but i drove you to Swinley so you are going to have to wait for anyhow.

    @howsyourdad1 very true but (a) I assume there is a pub at swinley and as you’re driving it would be rude not to make good use of my waiting time. (b) even if there’s no pub, standing in the pouring rain at circa freezing point watching you try and blow your tyres up to 18psi sounds much better than lending you my pump, again.

    I thought bar-end plugs were kind of handy, but that’s an impressive chest-corer on that Krampus.

    But did you get to the Level? And was it worth it?

    @LongboardSi… I got there but there was that old coastal still dampness in the air. The skateboard I packed is rolling on very 99a wheels, fast but no grip. At my age you have to pick your concrete battles. The next day was still damp, so I headed home but nipped off the M25 to visit Oxhey in Watford. They have built an awesome 70’s style snakerun with a pump track around it. They call it a “pumpscape”. It’s great for speed, berts, and just pretending its 1978 again.Oxhey skatepark

    Good work getting featured @cheers_drive ! 76Projects seem to fly, unfairly, under the radar imo

    Yay! Oxhey’s rad, take the kids there fairly regularly.

    @danieljohnreynolds they’ll be back soon
    We produce in batches rather than holding tons of stock. The Bobbins have sold faster than we predicted!

    I should probably mention – I’ve a few bits of 76 projects kit and they’re all very good.

    Is there a size chart anywhere for the rainbow jersey please?

    @lister. The Hackney shirts size up very normal you can go off your t-shirt size. We are cool with swapping shirts for a different size if you don’t get a good fit.

    Krampus? I’d buy that for a dollar!

    Liking those V12 pedals.

    And that Hackney shirt. Noice.

    🤔 I’m usually a M but measuring recently for an undisclosed brand of coat I found my chest/booby size was 102cm. 40”! Maybe a large then…
