  1. Hey guys, does anyone have used or damaged burrs they have knocking about in your cupboards that you are willing to get rid of? It's for an 'art' project for a friend. They'd have to be flat however. Will cover postage plus anything extra you'd like for your efforts. Thank you! Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  2. Excellent news, as long as that applies to those who retrofitted it to last year's LR all good with me Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  3. Got to say, had a couple espressos today and it's incredibly forgiving. 18-50 42sec tasted great, 18-48 34sec tasted great, 18-36 32sec tasted great! Thick, coating, silky mouthfeel. Very balanced acidity and mellow milk chocolate sweetness but no discernible funk or hugely standout flavours yet. Very different to the v60. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  4. Oh! Really? Noooooooooo... I thought that post from Reiss on the forum confirmed it was already in the transducer and all that was missing was the app. And that had been my understanding from the get go. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  5. Maybe I answered my own question.. went through the Londinium forum again and saw this. I was just really surprised by the date of the FB post which made me think I missed something critical.. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  6. So, this popped up the other day on FB and was slightly confused, so if anyone knows more, please enlighten me. When I got the digital PI few months ago, which I'm very happy with after adjusting expansion valve, I was under the impression that all we were missing was the app. Was meant to be beginning of the year but due to unforseen circumstances it was delayed. No problem there. But this message suggests that an additional module will be needed in order to operate it remotely from the app which will be landing in August. Am I reading this wrong? I really hope so as I imagine this module is not going to be free for those who already purchased the digital PI.... Was going to drop Reiss a line to ask but thought I'd ask here first. Thanks Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  7. First v60 this morning. 14g-225g, 25g pulse pours, 03:07 total time. Amazing clarity and gentle acidity. First thoughts were crisp green apple. Might go a touch finer next. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  8. Actually I need a new membrane too! Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  9. Tenayas are great too, finally managed to convince my friend to go for some solutions as his oasis had seen better days. . Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  10. Starting to feel better now, but you're right, the heel is amazing! Still a bit too painful to get good toe hooks but they'll soften up soon enough. I was actually considering the geniuses as they look fantastic and love the snugness that lace offers, but now you've mentioned the toe crippling pain I can happily forget about them.

  11. Have you found them to break in nicely after a few sessions? I'm hoping they will as I'd rather drink instant coffee than attempt to smear in them I love the precision on the toe but still need to get used to the super insensitive fully moulded heel. And my only gripe is the thin fast lock strap, supposedly it's been improved on these newer ones. .
  12. Tried some Miura VS 8.5s this evening, closest the store had. There's tight and there's not getting feeling back in your toes for 5 mins! I'll reluctantly pass. I've not actually tried the VS but was considering them at some point, however they work best for high volume feet whereas mine are on the narrow side (see chart). Having used my solutions over the past couple of days I can say that I will be climbing with plastic bags round my feet for a few more sessions. I did manage to send a few routes though that were previously troubling me. Switching back to my Scarpas, which are also bloody tight, felt like wearing cosy slippers. If you want an excellent technical bouldering shoe and have slightly wider feet try the blue Scarpa VSR, or the orange VS (lace for better fit). Those were a bit wide for me. They only need 1 EU size downsizing from street shoe size.
  13. As @GrowlingDog correctly stated these tend to have much softer rubber and glove like fit with practically zero dead space. They are also very downturned thereby forcing your foot into a talon-like shape and typically have high asymmetry. They aim to direct all your downward force through your big toe. They can be excruciating to wear for long periods and you would have to remove between climbs. Depending on the materials used, the shoe will somewhat mould to your foot, but you also eventually get used to the pain. Climbers toes are not something to aspire to. .
  14. When there's a will there's a way I'm currently using the plastic bag trick to break them in. Why don't you try them on at a local store for size and if they are comfy (in climbing shoe sense ie bloody excruciating if worn more than 20 min) then get these ones but for cheaper Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
