Someone tried pink a good few years ago, boy did that ever go down badly, I've seen better recieved hog roasts at Friday prayers at the local mosque

Barlist, any chance you might be able to take the trackpump (or possibly Cupcake) as you guys are the only people I know who are taking sherpas, so maybe they could take it as part of their weight allowance?  We're going to be struggling as it is?

Sadly my sherpa's baggage allowance will have all our stuff for our week's holiday after the event, as they charge a stupid amount of £££ per bag, we're travelling light! We could all throw £1 into a pot any buy one over there?

Ah, just a thought. No worries.  Well, I think Raf mentioned that one he is taking and fingers crossed Schmunks might take one if Barley asks her.  Aside from that, I've always just wandered around transition and borrowed one. If weight allows, I'll chuck mine in the bike bag.

Mouse - yeh, I'm taking a mini track pump, buts its good - its has built in pressure guage and is rated to 160psi so will do the job

There we are then.  Sortio.

Next!

Would you also bring some cable ties and gaffer tape please?  The whole world can be fixed by those two items alone.

Never leave home without them....and my latest discovery - industrial strength self adhesive velcro!!

02/05/2013 at 08:40

oh oh oh - I cut all the velcro straps off laptop cables.

You will see my makeshift Garmin mount for my bike, built with velcro straps.  (I don't like it on my wrist on the bike and the tri bars get in the way otherwise.)

No Pingu, fortunately not, although it might be an interesting sight 

02/05/2013 at 12:50

I'll be taking my track pump if anyone wants to borrow it.  There's 3 of us going and only me competing so no problems with weight of luggage.
