Both my wife and I get all our baselayers, and any other under layers (including stuff for hot weather), from Mountain Warehouse or Tresspass. If its good enough for skiers, runners and cyclists then its good enough for us.

Far cheaper, good quality, so were happy.  :028:

On Two Wheels / Winter clothing
« Last post by chubbleybear on Today at 11:33:26 AM »
For many years I have relied upon the quilted, padded nylon linings often found in textile bike suits to keep out the winter chill. However I've grown more and more dissatisfied with these as they are bulky and fiddly to insert and remove from the suit, often requiring much faffing about with zips, toggles and Velcro. This wouldn't be such a problem but for the fact that in spring and autumn, you can find the weather so changeable from day to day that you have to keep putting in and taking out the linings. They also have the disadvantage that they are not very thermally efficient IMHO.

I'm therefore looking for any recommendations for a suitable mid layer that can be worn over an EDZ onesie style base layer.

I have the suspicion that mid layers bought from a mountain/hiking shop would be just as good as bike-specific gear and a fraction of the cost (because it is produced in much greater amounts).

I'm reluctant to buy from a website as experience has shown me that some manufacturer's sizing is completely out to lunch.

Any thoughts?

Tyres and Wheels / Rear wheel bearings.
« Last post by Midd on Today at 06:00:01 AM »
Hi,folks
             I do not possess a bearing puller,and am going to replace both wheel bearings in the rear wheel .
         I have allready taken the larger bearing out from behind the sprocket.
          The two bearings have a spacer between them ,is it possible to dislodge one spacer by hitting the other thus using the spacer as a removal aid then using a drift to knock out the last one.
          I intend to use a gas torch to heat up the bearing let it cool and hopefully let contraction of metal slightly reduce its diameter.
           Also use a heat gun on the surrounding alloy to expand the material.
          The big question is is there a lip inside the wheel where each bearing finally rests. If so i would not be able to do the above method.or is there only one lip inside ?.i cannot find any info on this point so am at a loss.
Any ideas .thanks Midd.
