Front radial laced wheels should be fine as they are undished with a wider hub flange spacing than rear wheels allowing even more triangulation. I would be scared of a rear radial laced wheel not a front. 3 cross laced front wheels are actually just overkill as they are much stronger than rears. I've only ever bust rear spokes, ....touch wood :roll:

Today i won another tent :D Again its another Vango and again its a force 10.
But this time it's a Mark2 version Woopee doo :D :D
The MK2 is the 1 man force 10,possibly stronger than the higher sided models :? much sought after for touring and I just got mine for 1/2 the price of the last one that sold.


Chuffed is an understatement :D




I've got more tents than bikes :shock: :shock:

is that the one that just went for under £50? I was looking at it too but spent too long in Tescos after work :roll:

(however - I did get a spare Mk3 flysheet earlier this week - to go with my spare NOS Mk3 inner) :twisted:



BTW - if you ever stumble across a spare Mk2 cotton fly - let me know :wink:

I quite like this one... http://www.sportswarehouse.co.uk/produc ... -Tent.html

been thinking about it for a while for the canoe and bike. Totally compact but a decent porch and only 1300gms - even lighter if you don't take the poles and use a tree or paddles.


There is a Mk4 force 10 on ebay just now with cotton fly for 100 buy it now.

edit: in looking at the sellers other stuff I think I know who it is :)
