  1. I am sure that I have something for you. Let's chat, I will most probably have more than just the adapters
  2. How long does the bike shop claim it will add to your drive train? I don't think it's worth the effort. You can get 5000+ km on a single chain if you take care of it and easily around 8000 - 10000 on the cassette and ring without rotating the chain. But yes, rotating the chain will increase the life of the train but is it worth it ๐Ÿ˜
  3. I would suggest, that he takes baby steps. Start with something like walking or something to get the HR going. If the main goal is to lose weight he can literally just cut the calorie intake and do some carb counting to get the weight under control. Then once he gets closer to the 100 - 120 kg range then invest in a bike and jump onto the trails. This is going to be quite a long road to change the lifestyle and or habits. Buying a bike won't break those habits.
  4. There's another thread about the 2020 Baviaans which technically is the 2021 one ๐Ÿ˜. But my opinion: there's a lot of reasons why it can be pushed again but I hope things go ahead
  5. Why not have the frame sandblasted?
  6. Neither ๐Ÿ˜. Fulgaz is better IMO
  7. I have a snap and mine made a similar noise but the noise went away on its own. But I doubt that it will be a massive job to fix the noise if it does come up again.
  8. I have what you need, sorry for the late reply. I don't always check this thread ๐Ÿ˜”
  9. Ya, I am bored and just wanted to increase my post count: It's like Chrisf said, what you paid for it is sometimes irrelevant coz you bought it for a better price than new. But it doesn't change the fact that if you had to get that exact same bike now it will cost you the full amount. So yes, you are underinsured and it needs to be adjusted to the replacement value and not the purchase price. I am currently sitting in the same boat, my bike is also insured @ around 50-60% lower than the true value. This needs to be rectified ๐Ÿ˜
  10. I am also using Brave and have not had any issues ๐Ÿ˜
  11. Good luck Cois, if you don't come right with the log in details I will provide mine as well.
  12. Got this mail from them today Trans Baviaans 24hr MTB Marathon - Covid-19 Update 2021/06/30 Dear Rider, It feels like we have hit rewind and we are exactly at the same place we were a year ago. However unfair or unfortunate this may seem, it is simply the reality that we are facing. We have realized that we made the call too early last year and, in hindsight we could have presented the Trans Baviaans in August 2020. Based on those directives from last year, we are planning to wait for the current 2-week Level 4 restrictions to pass, before we make any decisions. Our first and utmost priority is to present the event as it should be in August. If the conditions are not favorable for the event to take place in August, we will postpone the event to September or October 2021. We will make the exact date available as soon as we have made the final call. We understand and respect the fact that everyone needs to plan their lives, accommodation, and travel plans, and we therefore will not linger on the decision making. We will make an announcement after the 11โ€™th of July, when the 2-week imposed Level 4 has passed, and the President addresses the nation again. We have a whole event to organize and plan and assure you that we are just as eager as you are to get moving on this. The curfew remains a big question on everyoneโ€™s minds. First, we need to understand that we are talking about 20% of our riders that for whatever reason might not make the cut offs. For them, we will make a plan with a curfew sleep out. We will move CP5 from the โ€œPakhuisโ€ to the Komodomo Campsite where people will be able to camp and sleep the curfew out, then continue with their race from that point to the finish. That said, our priority remains to get a curfew permit grant to host our event in its traditional 24hr concept. Currently we are still planning to have a 5am free flow start system from Willowmore, giving everyone ample time to finish in Jbay before curfew. We are constantly talking to the authorities, role players and our sponsors to monitor the situation. Please know that we want the Trans to take place as much as you do, and we are doing everything in our power to make this happen. Kind Regards, Team EcoBound
