  1. Welcome Shafeek! Good luck in your search. Being in the Cape, I think you are in good hands here on the forum. Make sure you get the right size bike. Also take into account that you may need some extras (helmet, pedals (sometimes not included in the deal), bottle cages, bottles etc.)
  2. If I don't say it, someone else will - If you are willing to buy second hand, perhaps also have a look at the classifieds on here. Depending on your size, you may just be lucky. Also, since you are considering buying new, I recommend checking in with the shops whether they have stock in the size you want.
  3. Valuable info, thank you very much. I have since established that the rims can accommodate maximum 28's. I will probably settle for something like this: (or not?) https://www.cyclelab.com/product/vittoria-zaffiro-iv-road-tyre Edit: or rather Thickslick tyres..?
  4. Well done! And many happy kilometers! I am just a bit jealous. Let us see dad's bike as well.
  5. This helps, thank you. How do I find out where on the scale this frame fits in? Can I send you a pic?
  6. Welcome MongooseMan, please keep us posted. While I cannot comment at all on the quality of the Rook, I can guarantee your street cred will increase exponentially overnight! Happy shopping.
  7. Thank you for the input. Where does the width become a problem on the rear wheel, I suppose where the chainstays start narrowing?
  8. Hi, I am still busy with my single speed commuter project and I need to consider tire options. I don't have old road tire lying around so I am looking at buying a basic set of road tires. My thinking is to rather go with a wider tire for commuting. Does anyone know what is the widest I can go on a steel Hansom road frame?
  9. I was thinking exactly the same thing! Cheers!
  10. UPDATE: I took a chance and ordered this little jar from TakeAlot and it fits perfectly! Not bad for a R43 fix. I am happy to be grinding again. https://www.takealot.com/bormioli-rocco-quattro-jar-250ml/PLID53188273
  11. I had a Titan Drone Comp for a short while before it got stolen and if I had the choice and given the opportunity, I would take exactly the same bike again.
  12. Thank you all, I have also contacted Cape Coffee Beans and apparently Hario do not ship replacement parts. Another supplier is currently looking for me. I have also read that some mason type jars may have the same neck size and thread. The search for anything that will fit, continues.
  13. Hi, does anyone know where I can find a replacement glass jar for a Hario Skerton Plus manual coffee grinder?
  14. I picked these up yesterday from Barry, who just happened to be at the right place at the right time. Thank you Barry, you are one of the good ones!
