  1. Maybe this.... https://bikehub.co.za/classifieds/item/fat-bikes/488968/titan-whopper-race
  2. A mate of mine from JHB was going to a conference in East London... he accidental booked a Return Flight to PE and had to drive the 300km there and back 😁
  3. I would recommend getting something like this.... https://bikehub.co.za/classifieds/item/hardtail-mountain-bikes/485303/silverback-stride-sport Old School V-Brakes, Coil fork, 6061 Alu Frame, and virtually ZERO maintenance for R1700, and get a new Saddle, if he is not comfortable he will stop ridding... something like these... https://www.cyclelab.com/product/velo-vl-6090-comfort-men-s-saddle https://www.cyclelab.com/product/syncros-gel-ladies-saddle This will enable him to go for a comfortable 30 min ride without any worries. If he is conformable he will enjoy it, if he enjoy's it he will do it more often, if he does it more often he will get fitter, if he gets fitter he will be able to ride longer, and this will improve his health and drop his weight. Once he has dropped some weight and "IF" he wants to take the next step, he can get a newer 29", I would recommend ... https://www.specialized.com/za/en/mens-s-works-stumpjumper-st-29/p/157590?color=253579-157590
  4. What are his Goals? Fun and being outside or Fitness and Weight Loss I would recommend getting a 26" Hard tail bike with strong (heavy) wheels. You can pick them up Second Hand quite cheaply these days.
  5. What type of Riding does he want to do ? and what is his budget?
  6. Hi Johan, I also had some Specialized (Carbon) MTB shoes that I loved and the velcro stop sticking... I bought some valcro strips ( you can buy then for anywhere , Checkers, Makro, Clicks, Crazy Store) . you only need to replace the fluffy side. Shaved the old velco off and glued the strips on ( with Super Contact or Sew-Simple). Got another 3 years out of them until the inner padding started to fall apart. This could tie you over for a while until you find something you want. I did Replaced them last year with Ryder BORA, these are not as comfortable on the bike, but are more conformable OFF the bike at the coffee shop or walking around. https://www.rydercycling.co.za/ryder-products/shoes/bora-shoe-detail It does come with a BOA too. https://www.rydercycling.co.za/ryder-products/shoes/bora-mtb-2-0-detail
  7. R2500 for the bike and R5000 for the Spez logo....it's worth R5000... to some people
  8. @Nico van Loggerenberg Where are you based? Are you looking for something local or will you buy a bike you have not seen (ie from another Province)?
  9. If you can't fix it with Duct-Tape...... you're not using enough Duct-Tape!!!
  10. @eddy I am genuinely interested... What would the claim be and how would you process it? Would it be for : R10000 - the price of the Bike ( which you haven't paid anything for, but you believe you you have some rights too) R15000 - the difference between the Exact new bike at R25000 less the bargain at R10000 R5000 - the difference between the Exact used bike at R15000 less the bargain at R10000 R3000 - the difference between bargain at R10000 and the price you could sell it in a weeks time for R13000 or something else like R1000 for wasted time?
  11. Aaah the grey area... The buyer thinks he has a 'Deal' and the seller thinks he has a 'Viewing' or the buyer thinks we have a 'viewing' and the seller thinks we have a 'deal' What if the seller, thinking he has a 'deal'... goes and commits to another 'deal' expecting the buyer to pay full price.... To me, this is why the deal is only concluded when the money clears the bank.
  12. @ChrisFWhat happens if I change the scenario a little... Seller Posts ad: Bargain Bike for R10,000 Buyer Responds : I would like to take the bike, can I pick it up this afternoon Seller: Sure we have a deal Buyer: Great 1 hour later Seller: I have someone else interested, they are at my front door with cash... are you still coming this afternoon? Buyer: Yes I am, Please hold it for me Seller: I can, but then you need to do an immediate payment for R5000 or cash send. if you are not committed then I am going to sell it to this guy. I can't risk loosing the sale. Buyer: We had a deal! Seller: I have a genuine deal standing in front of me, you might not show this afternoon.
  13. @Nico van Loggerenberg what would you have done in this situation as the Buyer? Seller Posts ad: Bargain Bike for R10,000 Buyer Responds : I would like to take the bike, can I pick it up this afternoon Seller: Sure we have a deal Buyer: Great 1 hour later Seller: I have someone else interested, they are at my front door with cash... are you still coming this afternoon?
