    The problem is our tank is steel so the problem must be the hose.

    Re: Show us your Mountain and Road Bicycles

    I'm not going to lie, I am jealous. The Hyrax is an awesome bike. If I had to replace my Pascoe, it will be a difficult decision between the Hyrax or longer travel Slakline, but Pyga it will be.

    I have an old'ish Waeco 18 litre exactly for that purpose and it works great. The problem is they are quite expensive for the size.

    Out of curiosity, why avoid filter papers? I found them quite useful as I don't have to clean them.
