  1. You can't go wrong with these, win all the way
  2. "It has just had a 16000 Rand service and most parts Are brand new" Man that LBS must have had a blast with that service..
  3. @Danger Dassie please can you post a link to the vintage/retro bike page on FB?
  4. I want to be able to just run/ride wherever my heart leads me and then get an alert when I reach a preset distance. Needs to be an android app.
  5. If you want to burn this guy hard everyone report his pages on Facebook, Insatgram and Twitter. Once you get on the wrong side of the algorithm especially on FB it makes life really difficult and lots of page reports from randomly located long standing/high value Facebook profiles will definitely have an effect: https://web.facebook.com/AdventureSolutionsRSA https://web.facebook.com/AdvaAuto/ If anyone knows of his other social media platforms post them here.
  6. Perhaps it's because the users aren't the core business any longer?
  7. We should just start a new forum for the chin waggers to get back to doing what they do best.... shooting the breeze, talking loads of bs and having a laugh along the long?! Bikehub is the most chilled of the bunch if you consider 4x4forum/MyBB/Bikehub as 3 of the most popular forums amongst your typical Bikehub adherent. Mybb is interesting but generally a different breed of person, things get rof there, anything goes. 4x4forum is great but pretty conservative and Bikehub was the most balanced and easy going from my experience. I still ride my bike but I'm past all the upgrading and hunting for the holy grail, so talking bikes is not as fun as it used to be, it will be sad to miss all you guys and girls with the off topic chat now gone
  8. @Nick Is it official, Tapatalk is never returning to Bikehub?
  9. That page is a bit faulty, if you click on anything from Overview to Password it takes you to https://bikehub.co.za/classifieds/settings and then there's no way back to https://forum.bikehub.co.za/settings/links/, even if you push your browser back button it will only go back to https://bikehub.co.za/classifieds/settings Actually without your link to https://forum.bikehub.co.za/settings/links/ I couldn't find those settings anywhere.
  10. Am I the only one getting random email notification on threads that I'm following(which is in essence every thread I'm following) but selected no email notification?
  11. Are we going to be getting email updates of all threads we have subscribed to randomly? I always select no email updates but I've suddenly been getting dozens today.
  12. How long after buying it did you discover the crack? I had a similar thing happen and the seller took the frame back and got it warrantied, took a while but all worked out in the end.
  13. Doing that really grates me, slimeball behaviour of the highest order, despite being able to get good deals if you haggle it just feels so wrong dealing with people like that. I have spoken to people who have gone in without knowing about this special price bs and they got taken to the cleaners.
  14. Probably some kind of alloy not too many degrees from pewter, just about impossible to repair and make the screw full load bearing again. I'd glue the whole lot into place with Pratley steel, on the shaft and them put some into the screw how and tighten the screw with as much load as it can take currently. Or another option is perhaps using a pipe clamp to replace the clamping force of the screw, make 2 cut outs in the collar to allow it to be squeezed and compares onto the shaft.
  15. They are actually R649, biggest bargain when it comes to helmets and the build quality is first class: https://www.firstascent.co.za/rapid-cycling-helmet
  16. First ascent makes a really nice MTB helmet for around R700, actually the best fitting helmet I've ever had, far better than helmets that cost twice the price.
