  1. Sola 2 with a new paint job and a few upgrades. I just love the geometry of this bike. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD
  2. There is few rear derailleurs with a clutch in the classified section for below R1000.00 Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD
  3. Saw this fascinating creature at GRTP in December last year. Scared the bejesis out of me at first sight, but I really appreciated the encounter at the end. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD
  4. Donation made. Thanks for the hard work people...???????????????? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD
  5. Very interesting reading all the pressures everyone is running. I weight 90kg and have 2.3 wide tires front and back with Wide Lightning rims. 1.1 bar front and 1.4 rear. This gives be loads of grip and I haven't damaged the rim as yet on trails ranging from Thaba to Van Gaalens. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD
  6. I have the 820 but I'm sure the 520 will work the same way. When connected to a power back it will charge only and the unit won't be able operate at the same time. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD
  7. I recently bought a 120mm Pike for my Camber. So worth it and definably one of the best upgrades I could ever have made on that bike. The Reverb dropper is a close second. Go Pike, you won't regret it. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD
  8. I don't trust those assometers from Spez. They measured me and suggested I purchase the 155 Phenom saddle. Had the same pain in the hammie where it joins your butt. I just thought I wasn't saddle fit and just pushed through the pain barrier hopping it would go away. Needless to say it didn't. Went for a bike set up at Cyclefit as I had the original bike fit done by Spez. Cyclefit suggested that the pain in the hammie was due to friction and pressure from the saddle because the saddle was to wide for me. I tested a 143 Henge ( a little bit more padding than the Phenom) and all my problems were solved instantly. It's been 18 month now and not a days issue since. My suggestion would be, if your having the same issues, and it sounds like some of you are, try a narrower saddle if you can get your hands on one, and see if that doesn't solve the issue.

  9. Thanks for the assistance regard the fork guys. Much appreciated. I pulled the trigger on the Pike RCT3 on Monday. Can't wait to install it and go for a ride. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD
  10. Where can I get my hands on one of these, or should I go on there website and purchase it directly?
  11. Must be the RCT 3 damper! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD
  12. Thanks, will look into the mrp 34mm. I'm not familiar with them but will most certainly do some investigation. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD
  13. Thanks for all advise. Ive never ridden a Pike before but it seems that the Pike is the fork that all other forks gets measured against and has been there for some time now. I don't believe I need more than 120 to 130mm travel. Its not an all out trail bike but rather a good mix of XC and trail. Longer travel is going to damper the climbing abilities a bit I believe. Just some thought that Im having at moment. Where would you suggest I start looking for prices? Should I buy local and support out industry even though I'll pay more or is it worth it buying online and saving a few bucks and take my chances with the grey import?

  14. Seriously? Ok Thanks, will look into it. I assume the Pike is the best of the three forks? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD
  15. Hi All I ride a 2014 Spez Camber Comp with a few upgrades that Ive done over the past two years. The parts that I've changed is as follows. American Classic Wide Lighting wheel set, carbon handle bar, SLX brakes, XT 1x11 group set and a Reverb dropper post. The original fork that came with the bike is a Fox 32 CTD Evolution. It has that noodle effect over rough surfaces that the fork became famous for. To try and combat it I changed the CTD damper to the newer Fit 4 damper last year. It made a difference on how the fork kept the front wheel on the ground but it didn't change the lateral movement or spaghetti effect at all. I've now had enough of this noodle effect and need to upgrade the fork. Id like to keep to the original 120 travel or possibly a 130 travel as I don't want to change the geometry of the bike too much. I was thinking of the Fox 34 120 travel ( I here they are pretty good forks lately) or the RockShox Revelation 120 for a 29'er. Was hoping for a Pike but as I understand it, the Pike only comes in a 140 to 160mm travel fork for a 29er. Does anyone have any advise regarding the Fox or the RockShox or have experience with both, and why you think the one is better than the other. Im open to other fork suggestions that you might think off as well. I do mostly XC type riding in Johannesburg with a stage race like Berg & Bush and some trails in Grabouw and the Garden route once or twice a year. Some advice will be appreciated Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
