  1. Some work I've done recently in customizing a stem for a Ciocc build and a chainblade for a Gios.
  2. Perfect cruising weather at the moment 🤙 I need to fire up my bikes again soon, they've been on trickle charge for too long.
  3. Investigator... "So Mr vd Poel, could you please confirm your exact whereabouts when this accident took place?"
  4. Unless he's pulling off the biggest fake in the industry then I don't think he's at the level of a top domestique at the moment so why even take him to the Tour? What is puzzling for me is they will have seen & studied all his power stats and performances in Tenerife and they'll know exactly where he is in terms of preparation and in comparison to the other guys on the camp and they have persisted with getting him ready for the Tour. IMHO.... They're either hiding it because it's bad or they're hiding it because they're planning something big and they're hoping to catch the other
  5. That was even tougher than I expected and I only did the 180. Kudo's to all those who tackled the full ride, I have the utmost respect for all of you but just shout if you need a reference for a good psychologist. I enjoyed the Rooiberg stage but that Caltizdorp stage broke me in half. Thank God I found my legs with 30km's to go. My legs still feel broken. Well done to Dryland on presenting a great event, I cannot fault anything.
  6. That's a harsh blow for Landa, just when he seemed to be coming into some great form as well.
  7. Should blow us home, route turns Easterly after check point 3
  8. LOL... my memory has never been something I brag about
  9. Make sure you finish early, the forecast on YR for Sat afternoon doesn't look very good at this stage
  10. As a touring bike, function wins over form but damn, that bike looks like my old dutch aunties shopping cruiser in that setup. But hey, it it works for you and you prefer it, then that's all that counts
  11. If 26er duals are still fetching around 6-7K then I'd guess a titanium hardtail around the 10K mark? Lovely bike, I never realized that Wheeler made a titanium frame. That's a nice collectible piece for someone into mtbs.
  12. That's an absolute beauty Morne Yep, you tend to hold a gear much longer on these old bikes as reaching down seems like too much effort
  13. This has happened to me several times when trying to purchase vintage bikes. My response is pretty much a standard reply of #gofuckyourself and then let karma do the rest. What goes around comes around.
  14. I do vinyl as well, you're welcome to drop me a PM
