  1. What about the 1.8l Apidura Backcountry top tube bag? easier access, more stable and *cough* more aero.
  2. Probably more important what carbon rims you are running. too wide and they will blow off. hookless and the tires will not work. Some guys trying to run MTB rims and they are often too wide.
  3. Event Name: The Cabal When: 13 April 2018 - 15 April 2018 Where: Trails End Hotel, Western Cape Category: Cyclocross kəˈbal/ A secret clique or faction. Based at the Trails End Bike Hotel in Grabouw on 13 & 14 April 2018, The Cabal is a limited-entry event that will change the way you think about cycling. Bring any bike. We don’t limit what you ride, focusing on the ride entirely. We recommend a Gravel Bike with at least 40mm tyres to get you through the day. Any less and you may not make it. Go to Event Page
  4. Hi All. On Monday, we took a group of 20 - 25 guys and girls on a new kind of cycling Tour. Here at Privateer we have a switchback problem. We love them. We hunt them. We dope on these beautiful pieces of road in our back gardens. In fact, we like them so much, we go out looking for the roads less ridden.

  14. Kosmonooit we had almost zero mechanicals. 1 x flat tire, with a mini sidewall. One of the bikes had a cassette and chain replaced 2/3rds in, but this was due for replacement before the trip already. As we are not riding hard and there is limited single track on the trip, the bikes were great, but here is a short list of spares that we carry: 1. deraileur hangers 2. shift and brake cables 3. plugs and sealant 4. crank bolts 5. cable ties 6. duct tape with duct tape and cable ties, you can always make a plan.

  21. looks so amazing. are the colors customisable? might have to put these on a special 2011 project I am working on...
  22. its nice to see that there are so many opinions. its also worth noting that you cant satisfy everyone, and I think the kit looks great, and kit always looks really bold on paper, but once out in the real world, its far more subtle. imagine the kit on a bike, out on the open road, leading a solo break. awesome...
  23. or they should take one of each. but its quite funny. The Whasp Kit is very Joburg and this kit, is a little more, well, Cape Town.
