If you fancy dipping a toe in the warm waters of ultralite cooking but don’t really know where to begin … this could be the answer. It’s both simple in name and nature. Pour your meths in, light it, wait 30 seconds and place your pot on top … told you it was simple!

Unlike the Bear Bones 8g and 22g the ‘Simple’ stove is a single wall meths stove, it’s not as complex or time consuming to manufacture and is painted rather than polished. If I was in marketing, I’d say that they’re a limited edition and only available for a short time. However, the truth is, I found a box of bottles under the workbench that I must have bought by accident. They’re not 8g or 22g size, so they’ve now been lovingly crafted into ‘Simple’ stoves. It’s true that they may only be available for a limited time but then again they might not. Each stove weighs 8g and measures 31mm x 40mm, a pot of 80mm diameter up to 120mm would be ideal.

If you’d like to get your hands on one, send £10 via Paypal to stuart@forestfreeride.co.uk (inc your address) and I’ll get you one in the post … I’ll throw in a 100ml fuel bottle too.

‘Simple’ stoves waiting to make your tea!

BB200 – when the mud settles.

Despite my best efforts, I’m sat here writing this surrounded by the intoxicating aroma of bacon butties. Why do I smell of grilled pork products? Because yesterday was the second edition of the 2021 BB200 / 300 and it’s my job to feed all those returning. Each October since 2011, a group of riders have […]
