Rookie (1/6)

  1. Thanks for all the replies! Somehow missed that the Trek is not a 29er. Feels like I am being pulled in different directions... And I cannot make up my mind. I thought you get hardtail and softail, nervermind XC and trail ???? I guess I'll be doing XC? Mostly tar and gravel and flowy singletrack. Nothing too hectic or technical. I am leaning towards the Specialised epic comp 2019 in the classifieds. Will do some research ????
  2. Hi guys, I currently ride an old small hardtail Scott Scale 940 with mixed SLX/XT components so I want to upgrade to dual suspension and 1x. Unfortunately, small secondhand bikes are quite scarce. Will be used for tar/gravel and a little bit of trail riding/racing. My budget is about 35k. I am leaning towards one of the below: MERIDA ONE TWENTY RC 9 XT-EDITION (2020) https://bike-addict.co.za/collections/mtb/products/merida-one-twenty-rc-9-xt-edition-2020 New Trek Top Fuel 9.8 (S) https://bikemarket.co.za/shop/bicycles/mountain-bikes/trek-top-fuel-9-8-s-bm3742/ Pre-Owned Specialized Camber https://bikemarket.co.za/shop/bicycles/mountain-bikes/pre-owned-specialized-camber-s-bm4499/ Please help me choose Very unsure of the SRAM SX so at least want to go for NX - if I can find a small frame. Thanks Rouxle
  3. Have you posted this on other sites as well? Maybe the public servant on Facebook?
  4. I don't think I'll be able to keep up with them so looking for another beginner or three. I'm in Sherwood so relatively easy to get to Grass Roof/seaview. Anyway, I'll keep training and then join them in the future. Thanks
  5. Hi Guys! I entered the 5150 NMB triathlon and recently bought a road bike. I want to ride on weekends (I live in PE but work in Uitenhage so training in the morning is a bit tough). Any beginners/average fitness cyclists out there wanting to join me? I'll probably park at Grass Roof and go from there. I am 23 and a female. Rouxle
  6. Hi Guys I am a 23 year old girl, a bit overweight so I set a goal of completing my first Olympic style triathlon in November (the 5150). Only been training for a week - swimming in the morning before work and running when I don't have evening class (which is over weekends). Anyway, I need to buy a road bike. I am in no rush as I can train on a mountain bike in the mean time. I'll be going to a recycle sport shop tomorrow and will report back here In the mean time - what do you think about https://www.bikehub.co.za/classifieds/204788-merida-scultura-juliet-904-carbon-small/ I have been on gumtree as well: http://www.gumtree.co.za/a-sports-bicycles-fitness/port-elizabeth/fuji-altair-for-sale/1001757504980910412502409 http://www.gumtree.co.za/a-sports-bicycles-fitness/port-elizabeth/raleigh-tri6000/1001757164740910266163709 http://www.gumtree.co.za/a-sports-bicycles-fitness/port-elizabeth/road-bike-for-sale/1001699564350910444487609 Budget isn't really an issue but I'd prefer going second hand in case it's a one time thing (which I am hoping it's not) Thanks!
