  1. Are you using a narrow-wide chainring? It helps with chain retention, other than that chain length and derailleur spring tension are pretty important - I am running 1x on my road and gravel and have noticed it’s exceptionally responsive to these things. Hope you come right.
  2. ironic that the event organizer is a marketing lecturer at Stellenbosch… if I remember correctly.
  3. It’s pretty crazy, even running events with much lower entry fees have way better prize money.
  4. If I recall correctly, 100 Miler prize money doesn’t even break even with the entry 🤣
  5. What’s the cash prize looking like for the 12h?
  6. Yoh I bailed hard so hard. Still hurting.
  7. Yo @Furbz if you haven’t come right swing me a message, if you still have my number from last year?
  8. Might be able to help you out as those wheels are now using the xdr. I’ll let you know when I get in to work tomo
  9. I will cry tears of joy if they turn this into a road race for elites. I dream of 5h races and stage races where the longest stage is over 4h and 2000m vert. DC as a road race would be my happy place.
  10. That’s a bummer. Hard to justify a week of leave to go do a race which barely gets any coverage, on the same week as South Africa’s biggest road race. +paying for more accom and and and… Hmmm
  11. I’ll be honest, I’m gonna put that down to freakish genetics, that bike was a hand brake in comparison to a carbon gravel bike with generous climbing gears, in my opinion.
  12. Anything can be a gravel bike if you’re brave enough. Check out the rig Matthys Beukes just used at Swartberg! 28c front and rear, rim brake, down tube shifters, steel.
