  1. Hi, I'm also a first timer for the Sani 2 C. Its my first stage race. I am very excited. Will be following this thread closely. I am from Pretoria though, so I will probably drive down there. I also think less is more, and I plan to just take the necessities. I am super stoked.
  2. Hi guys, I have a question, and I am sure my fellow hubbers would conquered this issue before. I did not want to revive an old thread deadish thread, or highjack that thread, but I came from here: https://community.bikehub.co.za/topic/55832-thule-roofrack-on-bakkie/page-3. Basicly I own a 2016 Toyota Hilux Double cab fitted with an Armidillo Auto Roll Top Cover. I own a Scott aspect 910 aluminium bike, which I had from 2014. Currently I simply open the cover and load the bike on the back with the front wheel over the tailgate with a blanket or so between the bike and the tailgate. I am planning to buy a new carbon dual suspension bike and do not feel like this is a viable option anymore. The Armidillo cover does not come with rails to attach a roofrack to, and it will necessitate drilling into the cover and my bakkie, which I would like to avoid if at all possible. I must add that I would exploit having the loadbars by fitting a rooftop tent also, so this option from Skitch is quite attractive: It seems like it would be possible to mount the rooftop tent in between the bikes still: Have anyone here mounted roofracks over the Armidillo cover before, and if so, what would be the best route to go. The rooftop tent is an added bonus, and bike safety take precedent in any event. What are you guys' thoughts on the roofrack over the Armidillo, and the best way to go about it?
  3. Cool thread. Ive got a 5 year old scott aspect that is still 3x10, and this showed me I can really keep up with the trend by doing a conversion.
  4. what happened to this thread? Let us know how this develops !
  5. doesn't sound right. Maybe contact the bike shop and find out what they suggest. I would return it if its that bad.
  6. It probably all depends on how you plan to travel. How easy is it to check your bicycle in on a flight to Cape Town? I would actually like to know since I might be interested in doing a Nissan Trialseeker down there too later this year. Else it might be cool to treat myself to a nice dual suspension bike down there as I currently have an entry level hardtail. For me it might be worth renting one down there, as I will certainly know after the race whether its worth it to upgrade.
  7. Good story. Good to know GMC throws their weight behind the youngsters! Kudos to them
  8. Hi, I did northern Farms with @Letum911 today. Definately worth going out there. Be prepared to do more climbing than you think. There is also a thread under the rides section of the forum which would express some other members views. It was my first ride there. We did the red route which is a love 39km route, starting out with some hill intervals up and down the sprinkler sections. Then you get a nice twisty forest single track section and my favourate probably is the canal section along the juksei. I really enjoyed the ride. Sent from my SM-N920C using Tapatalk
  9. Hi Guys and Girls, Another newbie here on the Hub. I hail from Pretoria, Gauteng and have taken up mountain biking in 2015. I actually started cycling regularly from the beginning of this year and completed my 3rd half marathon at thr Lionman last Saturday. Looking forward to be part of this community Sent from my SM-N920C using Tapatalk
  10. Hi all, I was the reason that @Letum911 was late for the race. We were rebatched to batch K and off we went. I was under the impression that the elevation gain would be under 300 meters and went into the race with no real concern, until met with the first two climbs and I knew I would be in for a long day. My strava failed as my phone wasn't locked but I completed the race in 3 hours. I would definately be back next year, better prepared as this is truly a fun event. Water points all round was impressive. Huge thanks to the organisers for putting together this event and the trialseeker series. Sent from my SM-N920C using Tapatalk
