Carradice, I have a serious addiction,no one needs a barley and super c audax both 9 litre bags,plus nelson long flap ,panniers ,rack bags ,seat packs. I've just got a zip roll bag ,convinced myself it was in effect free , because of the coffee and cake money I saved during lock down.

Sounds like Steve Abraham. I saw him ride up a 1 in 4 hill on 86", break his handlebars with the effort, clamp them back together with a light mount and ride another 80 miles.
Yup, our Steve. I once rode a fixed 600 permanent with him, round the hillier parts of East Anglia (so not that hilly, but some inclines to grind up). I was on 67", he claimed to be on something around 90", but was comfortably ahead of me on any hill. Later that week he rang to say he'd mis-counted the teeth on a cog when preparing the bike and was actually pushing about 104".
