  1. It’s as expensive as you want it to be. We don’t need wireless shifting, we don’t need carbon frames and wheels, we don’t need xtr/xx1, we don’t need the latest frames. We can definitely manage the costs through careful selection of components and builds. These top end bikes, although available to the public, are made with one intention-to win races. I’m not winning anything, I’m not even partaking in any events.
  2. I never had a bad experience in SA, so I guess I’m lucky. But life is stressful in SA-not just crime, the economy, financial institutions, healthcare, education. You can get quality in all of these through the private sector, but that comes at a price. My only care now is not losing my job, and even if that happens, I will find something decent relatively easily. Peace of mind is wonderful!
  3. Agreed - but there is the element of other rides (and gees if it still exists these days) to help get someone through The races where I suffered the most are the ones I enjoyed the most as well - its more gratifying. I hate getting to the end and thinking 'I could have done more' or 'I could have gone faster'
  4. Do the 45 and go flat out, and when you pop, carry on with easy ride back and enjoy it Unless you going for results, do the longer ride-gives you more mileage and time
  5. Has anyone picked up on the add yet? No wonder it's not sold after 2 weeks: S Works Epic | Bike Hub
  6. After setting the fastest lap (or maybe not, but definitely faster than Bottas)
  7. I don't miss too much about South Africa - but this event is something I definitely do miss. Well organised and always a challenge, even if it's no longer the brutal 80km route. It's no longer hosted by the W2W crowd, so hopefully the standard has remained the same.
  8. Friends don’t enter friends into MM
  9. Possibly a bit harsh, but up until my comment there was no direction to the thread. Subsequent to my comment it appears there is an answer for the OP-insist on a replacement, not a repair given the seat post was new. Is this what the OP wanted? It would appear so, so in the end I feel my comment achieved its purpose. And I’ll take your comments on my posting to be a compliment, and I’m try maintaining that level of commentary
  10. What’s the point of this thread OP? Are tug asking for guidance as to whether you should insist on a replacement seat post? Or are you warning us about some unnamed bike shop where you had a bad experience? Or are put asking the hub whether we feel the seat post can be satisfactorily repaired? Sounds like a lot of ranting without much purpose
  11. I don’t see an issue with this. He is putting in his time, his money and taking the risk It’s a different story to overcharging for the same goods which can be sourced locally for less, and definitely different to a person buying cheap of the hub and immediately re-advertising at a higher price
  12. But they live to tell the tale, unlike many cases in SA
  13. The type of riding and terrain will dictate this Also, work on your cadence if you are spinning out - unless you are spinning at the max cadence humanly possibly (whatever this may be), you have room to improve An chainring/gearing is not all about top/bottom end - it affect the torgue and how yo lay the power own. A smaller chain ring wi lead to less torgue, which reduces the chances of making the back wheel slip on lose terrain.
  14. we may need to question the reputability of these manufacturers
  15. Is nobody surprised that this bike is a 26in, 2019 model? Is that even possible? Or is this a purchsed vs model debate?
