  1. Stolen: Specialized Epic World Cup edition 2014 When: 29 January 2015 Where: Worcester, Western Cape Customer was unloading his bike from his vehicle. While trying to lock his vehicle, his immobiliser must have been jammed, as he could not get the vehicle to lock. During this distraction somebody jumped on his bike and raced away. Get further details about the incident in the Stolen Bikes section
  2. ManiC Cycles will once again be offering our tech support at the 2015 Cape Epic. Just recently we were very honoured to be invited by DRYLAND EVENTS, to be part of the official tech support at the recent Cape Pioneer Trek. Worcester is also a host town in 2015, with the race village no more than 200m away from our shop. We can also help with training ride or training camps in the area. For more info on our service package options please contact us at: francois@maniccycles-cw.co.za
  3. Is there anybody that knows who we can contact if we suspect that a bike is a stolen bike?
  4. When: Saturday afternoon around 14h00 Where: PArking lot in the school grounds at Paul Roos Gymnasium, during the last Spur Schools mtb event How: Very easy, bikes were parked next to my bus while we were attending prize giving.
  5. Hi Flymango, sorry for the late reply, been running around trying to find my bike...... I was guilty of being too trusting of my fellow man. We were busy helping school kids at last Saturday's SPUR Schools XC mtb event at Paul Roos. Bike was parked next to my bus all day. During the day there was constant movement with people and bikes around the parking lot. I would ride my bike to help kids, then leave it parked next to bus while watching the next event. Bike disappeared during price giving, while we were celebrating our schools victory in the mixed category. Obviously somebody disguised as a fellow cyclist walking around the parking lot, loaded the 3 unattended bikes and left. Lesson, never leave your bikes unattended, even in a crowd. There are people amongst us that look like you and me, helping themselves at events to others bikes. VERY VERY expensive lesson learnt, as bikes were not insured. R100k out of my pocket.
  6. Two others bikes also taken: 26" Silverback Mercury dual sus - Set of Mavic Crosstrail rims Scwinn Mesa (White with black & yellow details)
  7. Morning Hubbers. Especially Stellenbosch and surrounds. Please be on the look out for my stolen Momsen SL929. Couple of unique features to make it very easy to stand out. 1. Powertap oversized rear hub. (Thru axle). - Very few mtb's riding around with these. Even fewer on 142+ thru axle bikes. Built on ZTR Crest rim. 2. ZTR Crest front wheel with tied & soldered spokes. Stickers quite faded from the sun and washing. - Again something you don't see very often. 3. Carbon Fizik Antares saddle with red details and carbon rails. (Some scuff marks on the sides). 4. Very narrow and well worn Easton EA90 carbon h/bar. 5. 2013 Sani2C bracelet on h/bar. Bike is not insured so offering a R5000 reward if complete bike is returned. Thanks Francois

  9. My new L1tespeed - SS. All my old unused bits & pieces lying around. - Frame: Litespeed Ti frame with welded seattube with a shim in to keep from going again) - Fork: Very old SID fork, not sure of exact age, but definately at least 8-10years old. - Cranks: Old set of Superlight Stork Powerarm carbon road cranks that cracked and got repaired by carbon guys. - Wheels: AM Classic v-brake rims & hubs. Had my 1st ride with it this am and had an awesome ride! I'm definately HOOKED!!
  10. We started at 05h18 which was a 1st for me. In past DC'c that have started in Swellendam the feeding zones were chaos. Especially top of Op de Tradouw, through Montague and narrow road to Ashton. a Big part of this was due to top teams catching rest of the field. Well done to organizers for this new start format. I just wish we can convince the traffic dept and community of Swellendam to finish this awesome route by riding into main road of this beautiful time and not at the top of a lonely hill in the back part of town welcomed only by a few marshalls.
  11. you got it wrong. Scale 29 Expert selling for 22k. (IF, big IF, you can find a shop with any stock left....) Scale 29 Pro to retail for around R30k. With the high demand for 29er carbon frames, I'm sure plenty people will be willing to pay the 17k for a Scale Pro carbon frame. ManiC Cycles in Worcester has a 2012 Elite and a Comp on the shop floor. 29er Comp going for R7,499. 29 Elite for R14,999.
  12. My customers are all very happy with the GEAX SAGUARO with TNT side walls. Also waiting for arrival of 1st batch of Maxxis Crossmark UST in 29er version (arriving later today) I suspect it will be a heavier tyre than the Geax, but probably the most popular tyre in 26" UST around here. Hopefully Conti will have UST tyre in RaceKing or new XKing soon, but doubt if it will be before this years Epic.
  13. RYDER not also offer a tubeless repair kit, almost identical to the Weldtite offering at half the price. We sold the WELDTITE repair kit for R149. Now stock the RYDER option for R75. (They also offer the spare strips as spares) Happy to post them off to you, if you take a few (min 10), I'll pay the postage and send them via Speed services.
