  2. The "....500" events a series of 4 events put together by an oke called Rae Trew-Browne. THey are a free entry, no prize series of 500 km unsupported endurance events. The Ceres 500 was the first of the series and did a loop from Ceres across the Karoo to Sutherland, then re-crossed the Karoo back to Ceres. Very different to repeating 10 laps of a 50 km course with a nice refuel at each stop. I did the Ceres 500 and it was a pretty gnarly challenge with up to 200 km between water and fuel stops....
  3. Hi All In a moment of absentmindedness I unfortunately left my Oakley Jawbreakers (Prizm Trail, black and blue frames) in the showers at Karkloof Country Club on 13 July. I returned the next day but they were nowhere to be found...Its a long shot, but I would very much appreciate their return... Cheers, Jon

  10. Raptor 14 has got to be the best medium sized cycling bag out there. I have done over 2500 km of bikepacking with it, and its definitely the next best thing to not carrying a bag at all They're not cheap though...
  11. The Spank Oozy 345 (30 mm internal) rims are absolutely bulletproof, and its not a rim that every moegoe is riding....
  12. Thanks guys. I rode the route during November and December of 2017. Suffice to say it was physically the toughest thing I have ever done, but also one of the most rewarding experiences of my life I apologise for not keeping Bikehub updated; my internet connectivity was limited I will be doing a write up on my trip over the next few weeks which I will post here. In the mean time, there are plenty of pictures of riding in the Ecuadorian backcountry on my instagram account - @jagged_horizons
  13. I had a similar problem the other day when I changed pedals - try screwing the outside pedal pins down slightly; this will relieve pressure on the outside of your foot. It solved the problem for me....
