  1. It is slightly tart but I only add about 10% of the bottles volume. It just makes a nice change from the sweetness of coke/water combination
  2. In the past few years I have reverted back to water with about 25% coke . Lately I have tried adding fresh ginger beer instead of coke. We don't ride for more than 3 hours and not at a flat out pace.
  3. I am in. R2500 towards entry fee and R2.50 per km travelled.
  4. Agreed. I have even done it on our tandem with my wife as stoker.
  5. We rode here on Saturday. It is the driest I have experienced. One small patch of mud and no water in the little rock depressions. Weather forecast shows rains going to start again later this week.
  6. I FLY

  7. You are talking to a bunch of cyclists. We understand the practicality of high maintenance
  8. Try living in eMalahleni ( Witbank) - all the bakkies and Fortuners are white. I used to comment that one quick way to clear a restaurant was to announce that a white bakkie had been bumped in the carpark.
  9. It is the Riverfields and you decide on the donation you want to give.
  10. We rode there on Saturday morning. Nothing quite like riding a hidden ( overgrown) singletrack on a tandem to test your stoker's faith in your ability to correct mistakes.
  11. I rode a little single track in Kempton Park yesterday near the R21 . It's 12kms long , only one little patch of mud, nice and flowing with quite a few berms. Nothing overly challenging - my wife and I ride it on our tandem. Entrance is on Blaauwklippen Ave , Glen Erasmia. Fee is on a zapper/snapscan honesty system.
  12. I used a single speed mtb for my daily commute. I think that I did 8000 kms a year. Costs were 4 tyres 1 chain 1 BB 3 sets of brake pads.
  13. Definitely a Marin with an upside down fork setup I rode next to my Epic partner who was on this bike for a week the suspension had an annoying squeak the whole week so I did look at the name on the frame numerous times
  14. I remember having one for an extended trial in 2006. Got many comments on the upside down fork setup. Made me look like a downhiller ( but without the necessary courage or skills)
