  1. https://bikehub.co.za/classifieds/item/dual-suspension-bikes/498481/giant-reign Same bike? Without the crap sales pitch?
  2. Stoke Suspension used to do shockwiz rentals. DM @droo to find out
  3. At least there is one Gavin Anthony Smith for sale
  4. @Menno Schagen This looks like my old fork that I recently sold to another hubber. Its a 2008 Marzocchi Bomber 66 RCV. 26" 180mm travel, 38mm Stanchions, 20x110mm hub. A hope pro 4/hope pro 2 evo with 20mm endcaps will work for it. I also have a GT 20 x 110 hub in my parts bin should you be interested. Even though the fork is 26", I was able to fit a 27.5 x 2.5 Minion dhf in there, no issue, with plenty of clearance. 9k for the fork is a bit on the steep side for the age of the fork. Hence me selling it on the cheap when I sold it. Still a super plush fork. I kept it as a spare for my Ibis mojo hd3 and ran it when I sent my Fox36 to RBC for services. Should you want any additional ifo on the fork/oil level/ service info etc, you can DM
  5. Autosol is any raw aluminium frame's best friend. For the frames i did I used a green 3m pad and WD40 for the initial polish, and then autosol to finish it off. If you want to clear coat, ou will need to use a self etching 2k clear coat. rattlecan won't be durable enough.
  6. Hahahaha, crazyness. Sold mine for R1500 a month ago. Still regret selling it though.. Edit: Looking at it closer makes me think its mine that passed hands again
  7. Hands down Williams. You can also check out The Hanger Bike Co or Pedalworx
  8. If you have time: elbow grease, WD40 and green scotch brite. Done that to all 3 my previous RAW frame projects
  9. First time out at Hoogekraal. Still recovering from a broken hand and flu, but was awesome being out and about today. Muddy as hell. But great fun.
  10. It was bike addict that had one at a good price. Was looking to replace my cane creek dbair IL. the rebuilds are getting exponentially more expensive, and Isiko sports moved from the Strand to the othet side of the country, so adding courier cost to service cost makes it even more expensive
  11. https://bikehub.co.za/classifieds/profile/154930 A fellow hubber helped me track his bikehub handle. His bikehub nicname is Delong
  12. They never replied my emails when I enquired about stock, went for the "second best" option. Fuming about this
  13. I cant remember his bikehub handle. Unless admin can go back on my chat history
  14. I sent him a link to this thread as well incase anyone asks
  15. Hi guys and girls Just a heads up about a dodgy seller in the classifieds, Henrico Jacobs. ( I cant remember his bikehub nikname, stupid me cleared my inbox) About a month ago i bough a Fox DPS rear shock off him, advertised as a 200x57. Upon receiving it, I found out it was a 190x50. We spoke, he promised to rectify the issue and produced another Fox DPS, this time 200x57. I met up with him, swopped the 190 for the 200 and went on my merry way, believing the issues was resolved. Fast forward to last night. I finally fitted the shock to my bike with the hope of setting it up for my ride this morning. While setting the sag in my driveway, I heard the shock clunking on full extension. And decided to deflate the shock and reinflate it, cycling the suspension ever so often to equilize the positive and negative chambers in case that was the issue. (Also found that he rebound dail is also on the frits, no positive detent clicks) On the first compress I saw that I didn't get full travel. I only got 50mm in stead of 57mm. Tried cycling it a few more time, but to no avail, no more than 50mm travel. I refitted my cane creek and went riding today. When i got home i opened the aircan and found that the damper's stanchion is warn and that the top out stopper was removed in order to extend the 190x50 shock to 200mm. I contacted Henrico, but he is igoring my messages. So school fees paid and have a new paperweight for my desk. Be careful when dealing with this bloke. Henrico Jacobs Cell number:076 330 5100
  16. I can confirm that Riyadh is indeed Riyadh (if that make sense). We have ridden together, swopped parts, talk on a regular basis, been to my house on a few occasions. Very solid guy in my book
  17. Ibis Ripley AF...because Ibis and DW link susension. And @ $1899 for a frameset, its a no brainer..for me that is (now..if I only had the money...)
  18. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7NiBzz9mp8 Seems it more directed at the ebike market?
  19. Get your fork to a proper suspension guru. Like Andrew at Stoke suspension, or Robbie as RBC (in PE though). They will be the best people to asses your fork. I have a RS Recon that is doing the same, and I will be taking it in as soon as I have funds to have it looked at again. As for the best replacement, it all depends how deep your pockets are. I am very happy with my RS SID on my hardtail, the Recon is also sufficient for most application. It all depends on your riding style and how much you want to spend.
  20. I think my heavy foot and all the stop/go to work is a bigger influence on my fuel economy than my roof racks / thule racks. I drove up to the Northern Cape easer weekend, and I got 6.2km/l on the open road (the racks were empty though). My racks stay on, purely due to convenience. We mostly start riding before sunrise, so I dont want to fumble in the dark fitting my racks before I drive to the trailhead
  21. my average fuel consumption went up from 6.4l/100km to about 6.9l/100km. so not a biggie
  22. I leave my thule racks on my car, but I insured them as well as my roof racks. Been doing it nearly 4 years now without incident. Way too much of a schlep to fit and remove them the whole time and storage space for them at my place is also too limited.
  23. Never mind that. What about all the linkages, frame hardware etc.? That's not even a complete frame.
  24. No excuses. haha. Last year there was a guy that rode the 45km with us on a rigid hardtail, I think it was single speed as well. Cant remember to well as I was dying from my lack of fitness. Really upset I couldn't go ride it this year though. Best mountain biking for me for sure. I hope that there could be a second open day later this year...
