Re: Resco

I had one of the originals with the Slava movement--it was a nightmare. Movement had to be replaced twice. Lume pip didn't line up with 12 and always bothered me a bit; bezel movement was pretty sloppy, too. They seemed like nice folks, but my c/s experience was not good. They originally wanted me t...

New MTB help

It kind of depends how much climbing you plan on doing. Out here we do a lot of technical riding (NH), but our climbs don't tend to be as long. Most riders here prefer the 1x systems for that reason. 2x's are nice to have when you have a lot of climbs, and the jumps between gears aren't as noticeabl...

Re: Maldives Diving info request

Granted it's been a while, but I stayed at the White Sands Resort in South Ari Atoll in 2004. I little bit further down, but the diving was great--one of the best shark dives I've ever done, along with Manta cleaning station (all seasonal, of course), and one whale shark encounter. Not sure what it ...

Re: Gunny Straps, are they always this bad?

The color is uneven, I'll give you that. However the dimensions are uniform as are the stitches. I think the rough edges were by design / choice of materials. I'd say the craftsman probably intended what you got. If it were 22mm I'd consider buying it off of you. I don't have anything that's 23 mm ...

Re: Gunny Straps, are they always this bad?

Email him and he will take the strap back. He will make sure you're happy. I've got a bunch of his stuff. Did he not send you pics of the strap before they sent it? He usually does. My last order I actually rejected the ones he made (based on pics he sent) and he redid them and then I approved and ...

His stuff has been pretty solid in my experience, although that was years ago when I wore leather. He seems pretty responsive, have you tried to return it or get a different one made? Just got it in the mail today and was really disappointed. I'm going to write him tonight. From my post order conve...

Re: Gunny Straps, are they always this bad?

I never wanted one of their straps. But I thought they were made by some old Marine in the basement making straps. Didn't they make a LE version for Arnold? I don't know, they always looked like they were 10mm thick so I never bought one. You know what's interesting, it's basically a thick leather ...

Gunny Straps, are they always this bad?

So, wanted a canvas strap for my Tudor Bronze, and as both Art and Drew are busy, I contacted Gunny straps and ordered one. I guess I should have done a little more research, as I didn't realize until after the strap was made that they are in Indonesia. I honestly thought with that name it was a for...

Get one of those stands and turn your current cycle into an exercise bike Watch porn or whatever on ya tv This.

Conditioning leather straps?

I've been looking at a couple of my leather straps and asking myself if I should put some type of leather treatment on them, if it will help them last a bit longer. I'm fond of using Mink Oil on my boots--anyone ever tried this, or use anything similar on their straps?

If one is going there, the Turkish side ...
