I run an Exposure Axis (half way between a joystick and Diablo).
It was expensive, about £130 in a sale but it’s lightweight, nae cables and bright enough on the middle settings.


keep thinking this way go, but unfortunately never have the funds at the same time as the thought :roll:

Last year I started using the Li ion (disposables) in the etrex for bikepacking and walking... what a difference they make, especially in the winter hills, the cold doesn't affect them at all

Only half correct Mr P.

"Tarmacadam is a road surfacing material made by combining macadam surfaces, tar, and sand, patented by Welsh inventor Edgar Purnell Hooley in 1902"

Only the MacAdam surfaces are a Scottish Invention :wink:

Cracking ride today with the North & West Yorkshire Retrobike guys around Nidderdale in the Yorkshire Dale's.
Sunny blue skies but a sharp frost and patches of ice to contend with on some of the tracks, still, made for an interesting ride :)
