    Hi, I am considering using the TA for some gravel riding. What will i need apart from TKC80's ? Anyone seen a headlight grill for the 600 and a bash plate that looks really good (seen only not so nice but practical bashplates for this bike around). Is it a suitable bike for gravel touring...

Got progressive...

    Jas being the good sort had a screen for a RD04 kicking about that he let me have for price of postage, top man:thumbright: I wasn't too bothered about the condition but when it came through it was more than sell-able with only a few scratches. 10 minutes with t-cut had the lighter marks off...

    At what point would you say panniers are too wide. Had racks made up for the RD04, great workmanship, but, they are 60cm wide. My panniers are big but not that wide, 25cm each, which would then give me an arse like Doris at 110cm. I'll not be doing any filtering with them on so I'm not bothered...
