  1. Nice! Where are you based in West Yorkshire? We used to live in Castleford for many years.. If you want some great riding you can head to the Lake District, Hardknott Pass will give you a bit to think about, and then it is also worth your while taking a pedal to Scotland... We set ourselves a 50 Squid bike budget and then went drinking from London up the east coast, so I guess Hull would be the nearest starting point for you. The route is pretty amazing and a lot is on abandoned railway lines. And if you are into MTB, Dalby Forest is also pretty close.. Next plan is to visit the distilleries around Scotland when we can travel again! Tom
  2. Would you mind sharing the gpx route once you have done the trip? Thanks Tom
  3. Who is the guy with the purple Stage in the southern Suburbs? Passed him heading towards the US embassy on Sunday. That bike looks flippin great! Tom

    Pyga Hyrax

    Haven't bought one yet, but have had the 110, 120, Max and Zero.. Still have the last two. Hyrax is definitely on my Next List if I don't get an ebike.... Short and sweet if you want to bomb down trails with a big smile on your face it should definitely be one of your first choices. With regards climbing, short stem - longer travel bikes often have the front wheel in the air, doesn't matter what you buy. It has never really bothered me, as I'm not a podium contender. Being up in KZN is also a bonus, as you can get lots of advice from the Pyga guys, and also join them for skills sessions.. Tom
  5. It is a minefield, I learnt this when I broke my Maxel. What brand are you currently using? Tom
  6. Dave got back to me. It will be around R20k for the course and frame. Tom
  7. Green one belongs to my bike wife. Just wish Pat would make more of these, or do something in steel at their new factory. Don't know if any of you have seen the post from Dave Mercer, but he is offering a bike building course. Perfect opportunity to get the bike of your dreams! Tom
  8. Pyga Zero x 2. Mine's the silver one!
  9. A guy on the Pyga Whatsapp group is looking for A zero. Not too sure if you are on the group? If not, post the details here and I can send it on. Tom
  10. This might help: https://si.shimano.com/pdfs/dm/DM-CN0001-05-ENG.pdf And KMC chain should be just fine. Tom
  11. Some Waltly Ti porn.... I have asked Sumi to send me a price on this one!!

    Lumos Ultra

    Must admit, I didn't think too much of the Lumos helmet, until I was given one as a birthday present a few years back... Now it is my go to helmet for early morning riding and when I commute to work.. Even rode the Epic with it! They are definitely worth every cent, and to be able to indicate in traffic is a bonus (I'm not an Audi or BMW driver so I still know what the little orange lights are used for!). I think Brights Hardware have the franchise for them in SA. Tom
  15. One of the earliest ones I believe - mine just has a straight 'P' on the front. Are they open to negotiation? Tom
  16. Price sounds about right.
  17. If you don't buy can you share the shops contact details? Tom
  18. There are two places in the complex at Black River. The one downstairs is an outlet shop, and one you'll be looking for is across the courtyard upstairs. Good luck... Customer service is not high on their list of priorities as I found out when I went there. Tom
  19. The p*ssed oke driving up Rhodes Drive yesterday morning around 7am clearly didn't get the memo!! Tom
  20. True story!! Me with my Da Brim on the Epic last year.. I'm pretty sure the only reason why partner hung around with me was because of the 2 minute rule!
  21. Or if you don't like sunburn you could go with a DaBrim... But wearing one is generally the same as going into self isolation..
