  1. Have a look at Trainerday if you want a similar experience to TrainerRoad, or MyWhoosh if you prefer watching a little person on the screen like Zwift
  2. If you head towards Ballito, Holla Trails offers a bike hire and they offer Trek Marlins and some E-bikes too
  3. Thanks. Let me know if you would like to get rid of it at a later stage
  4. Have you decided what you are doing with the rim yet?
  5. If you are getting ride of it I would be happy to take it. Could you PM some pics?
  6. Looking for a 29" Roval aluminium rim if anyone has one lying around?
  7. Thanks, either is fine. I don't think she will be too fussed at this stage
  8. Hi guys, Im looking for any 10 speed goodies for my daughters bike. Cassette, derailleur, chain, shifter and possibly a 1x chainring. Let me know what you have. Also willing to pay
  9. Check out trainerday.com There is a monthly fee of ~R70 p/m but the plans are great
  10. I think e-bikes are great but for those that use Strava as a yardstick on their training or progress against other normal bikes, it does skew the results. I don't know why everyone is giving the OP so much flak, maybe he likes the results to be on a level playing field. This might be important to him and a whole bunch of people so just because it isn't important to YOU, it doesn't mean he feels the same. Stop being d00$es and be lekker. Its not difficult for those with e-bikes to change the setting on Strava to omit the results from the segments.
  11. How did you feel on the ride? Was it very slow?
  12. Max ride was 70km MTB - I do not ride road Not training for anything specific, just seeing what is achievable with the MAF method and I still do an improvised version to this day. I am however trying a new approach with a sort of progressive overload in 3 week blocks but still maintaining the MAF ideology. Nothing at all....
  13. No not really. I enjoy some of the good things like chocolates and beer. The MAF training that I mentioned is not 100% in line with his plan because of my additional high intensity workouts. I personally don't feel like training at your MAF limit ONLY, will have the highest benefits. Mixing it up like I mentioned above seems to condition your body for both the endurance and high intensity that would be experienced come race day. I also managed to lose ~4kg by using this method
  14. I started MAF training last year in both running and cycling. Running is a new sport to me and I am not conditioned to run whatsoever so trying to run at a max of 144bpm ended up being quite frustrating. I was walking more than running and I felt like I wasn't doing enough. After about a 3 months of it with incorporating MAF into my cycling, I started to see results. They weren't groundbreaking but my endurance in both sports improved dramatically. I went from running 5kms to 21kms, I was riding with my heart rate below the 144bpm limit without event trying to keep it down. I would recover way faster after sprints and I generally felt better after exercise. I didn't however follow the MAF training religiously.... I would incorporate 1 HIIT session per week on the bike and try my best to achieve a polarized plan. It does work but you have to be disciplined and willing to go really slow. A great way to quantify your results/progress is as follows: Run - Take note of when your heart rate reaches the MAF max at the start of each and every run when running at a medium pace Ride - Choose a flat route on Zwift or outdoors and ride for the full duration with your heart rate at the MAF max and record your distance over 30 minutes. Do this once a month You will see the small victories everytime you do it. Just to add, I didnt do any rides longer that 2 hours when training below 144bpm.
