Washed the bikes on Sunday and after cleaning the chains decided to do a quick wear check. To my surprise my GX chain was sitting at .5 after only 1750 km's. Wifes GX chain still good, but she has done about 1000km's. (12 speed groupsets)
Replaced with an XX1 Black chain and did some hard uphill pedaling in the most worn gears, no slippage so cassette is still good it seems.
@Quagga that looks like a symmetrical 96BCD. Went through the same last year when converting my wifes bike to 1x12. Could not find a chainring at all, only asymmetrical 96BCD was available.
I went and bought a new bottom bracket and crankset+chainring from Lyne.
Last time I rode at Tarako was 24 April 2021, the river section was included in the Green and Red route if I am not mistaken.
First time I got to ride this section, was not blocked off at all and boards directed us straight into it.
Thanks Shahilj, not too worried about myself, just a couple of my mates which only has interest in riding road or non-technical routes. Will get them up to scratch by then, I think the Buffel route at Buffelsdrift should be a good measuring stick.
Hi all, We are heading to San Lameer in January and I was wondering of there are any worthwhile trails in the area? According to San Lameer website they do have a MTB trail in the grounds of about 10km, but I do not want to pack the bikes if this will be the only riding to do. Your suggestions is appreciated.
Just adding here as I did not think this warranted a new thread. I rode at Rosemary Hill this weekend again, and for the first time decided to take the rock garden turn off close to the end of the trail. Saw a crazy amount of safes standing around. Some cut open, some blown open and some seemingly still in perfect working condition. Does anyone know the story behind these safes and why they go there to die? Also saw one security guard watching over these safes. There are also quite a few abandoned SAPS Caspers and older police vans which can be seen from the trails as well. Interesting place.
Was in the same dilemma, could not source one at any local bike shops. I then had someone 3d print one for me. See below print file. Free to use, just supply to someone with a 3d printer. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3010476
