Just been in loft 2.4kg inc pegs wild country tent if anybody is serious and fancies it for £35 posted I'll put it up and take some pics?

FF has first refusal but I'm never going to use it again so up for grabs. too low for my old bones.

It goes down a lot smaller than this, if you take the severed arm out of the bag.......

FF at 6'5" would be a little large for this as at 6'3" I just got in.

I will share this solo bikepacking Adventure from couple months ago.
Not retro but full suss, me and my bike ... nice
The plan was to cycle from Stratford in East London to Beachy Head In Eastbourne Sussex following sustan route 21. with wildcamp on the North downs in Surrey and camp on the beach near beachy head.
just over 100 miles mix of roads ,trails though country parks etc.
took me day and a half to get their taking my time to absorb the healing greens of the country side, Inflatable Alpkit mat and army goretex bivy ,cheap sleeping bag and meths burner for quick meals hot drinks.
some flicks of my endevours ignore the time stamps ,

Afternoon all, just picked up a used frame bag off eBay but having just done a quick mock up as per the piccy, what’s the best way to prevent the brake cables being hindered by the large Velcro strapping? Plastic donuts? Or are these bags not really meant for retros with exposed cables...?!

Cheers
Matty :D
