  1. so much of the prasa land could include a cycle track alongside the rail. it's the many pinch points that would need work. full scale conversion to zero rail is definitely a pipedream
  2. who? http://results.racetec.co.za/results_by_event.aspx?RID=2019&EN=2019 Cape Town Cycle Tour (109km)&GG=Female&AG=F U15
  3. if we had comments on this one, it would be wild. okes tuning him about buyer's remorse okes saying it's fugly people asking if he could take a kidney rather the full range!
  4. Not really the place for this as it's new management so maybe be a bit more openminded going forward. However I think you'll find a lot of people have had Giant anthems in particular successfully warranteed by dragons in the past.
  5. cyclist with draft cyclist with draught
  6. Sure, obviously Kigame has an ego that needs stroking. You don't put Visit Rwanda on your favourite football team because of the ROI. BUT, this is the first I heard that Africa was allocated a definite hosting slot. Surely the conversation was had to submit a bid? Or was CSA to busy infighting at the time?
  7. I see Morocco also submitted a bid. It was earmarked for Africa. Did we (CSA) not even bother? A week of world class riding in the Winelands would be off the charts
  8. Where do you live? They play in the online space, especially since swallowing CWC. If your local drinking hole is the Masonic Pofadder then it's not knee jerk pricing
  9. great Freudian slip there! I'm against you on ebikes though. I don't own one but see them growing the sport. hating on them is bad for all of us.
  10. i was being VERY sarchastic. it's an obvious marketing gimmick. ever since admin took away comic sans my humour has been underground.
  11. my response to this problem was a little bit leftfield. older sister can stay on her 20" bike for now and let's get something similiar but different for boytjie. now that's an early birthday present and now sister wants a new bike too. I think a kickstand might actually solve the problem
  12. Shebeen


  13. sina frei the only one here with XCO top results in 2021, this will be an interesting year in many ways. dark horses Preen and Rabie...sjoe wonder if they can get in the mix
  14. UCI is a broad church. just because they approve of something doesn't make it cool and acceptable. http://www.stickybottle.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Socjs.jpg
  15. Wonder if this one went ahead. seems like the liquidation order was the week before. so probably more people out of pocket.
  16. Cycling shoes, socks, mankini, helmet. I don't do gloves on the road
  17. Easy. That bike thought it was fighting communism!
  18. I thought you were a Johnny come lately! Seriously though it's quite amazing that admin has turned a varsity side project into a viable and long term business that has staff, premises, pays tax and all that other legit stuff. I'm sure he's taken a lot of bribes in the form of bike porn in the name of journalism along the way. He will deny this, as he should. I think I joined during the TCS era, bike hub was a bit wild but still building up to peak crazee. I came from the back ground of the warthogs Mtb mailing list. Turns out a forum had so much more functionality! Mailing lists are mostly dead. Many forums have been superceded by web 3.0 Facebook and twitgram stuff, but here we still are. It's not by accident that thehubsa is now the biggest cycling resource on the country. I'm shocked to see actual hardcopy cycling magazines still existing in the supermarket queue. Who on earth funds that recycling machine? Remember the news24 comments section, well this here website predates and outlived that monster! So ja, a cycling forum it is. If the medium term goal is a focus on quality classifieds and blocking controversial NCR discussion I am happy in the knowledge that it is not a decision taken lightly. I also have that yellow thing on the left mainly because I believe there is a place for a local cycling forum cooking and these guys are doing a good job at it so worth supporting. The only thing that doesn't seem to change here is people thinking they know better than Matt and nick on what is required to make this place work. Bless their optimism. Finally, I got an email last week from the cyclingtips people. I think I'm on their radar due to being in their simple but effective fantasy games. They have... Shock shock horror... Just launched a forum. They're smart aussies, and clearly wanted to expand their community (which also has a subscription component). I'm automatically a member so had a poke around. Early days but the threads are all totally cycling related and damn interesting.
  19. ok got it. I did the formula now. you are correct.
  20. all i'm saying is that it looks like they aren't adding the 10 penalty points. due to time since march 2020, i should have a seeding index of 53 now.
  21. I think my CTCT 2020 has the 10points penalty waived for the 21 CTCT. Well that's what it says on racetec at least, my index of 43 from that result gets me into 1E.
  22. floyd making dope zabriskie making ball cream
  23. so what does that mean for pricing in ZAR?
