  1. Kelly Slater is probably the only one.
  2. Conti Race King is one of the lightest with low rolling resistance BUT they don't last very long if you do a bit of road riding.
  3. Started FarCry5 again in anticipation of FarCry6 launching in October. Also play some Borderlands 3 for fun and a laugh.
  4. 2020 was supposed to be my 5th 2021 might be my 5th Who knows going forward.
  5. Do the 25km and go flat out , it will give you an indication of how fit/strong you are going forward.
  6. I don't have a Spez bike but had the Tactic helmet which was replaced due to delamination eventually(long story), got the Ambush after that, had a crash which cracked the helmet and only had to pay in 50% for a new one. Got 2 pairs comp shoes(MTB) still going strong after about 5 years. I love my Power saddle. The saddle has been replaced twice due to the rails coming loose in the moulded part. The store owner said Spez won't replace both times but I can chat to the gent who handles warranties , the warranty gent replaced both saddles no charge and I left a happy customer. I like the Spez gear but probably won't buy a bike unless it's an MTB eBike, the Spez eBikes seem to be better and more popular than the rest.
  7. That's a beaut bike, well done and many happy miles.
  8. I have 2 bikes on my household policy, R80k and R40k together they about R400/month with Momentum, the bikes are covered for everything including my own stupidity. The only exception is if I was racing pro and earning a living out of it. I've never claimed for either bike in the last 5 years of cover so I don't know how that goes.
  9. Post a couple of pics and some more info like year model etc and you will get some feedback.
  10. I have round on a bike and oval on another, both MTB. I hardly ever ride the bike with the round(hardtail). For me the first thing I feel when riding the round is the crank arms feel longer or the pedal circle feels bigger. I had some knee pain/discomfort after my last ride on the bike with round ring.
  11. Buy a nice new light modern geometry bike and you will be more committed to training and...... ????
  12. We went through Nieu-bethesda yesterday Karoo 100 miler, nice little town but it was the start of a very tough return to Lormar.
  13. Turn off the blue tooth on the 520 and it should make it , have a battery pack in your Bergplaas box or at the Pakhuis stop with your support.
  14. I think you might well get your price, it's realistic and good value for someone wanting to try the sport.
  15. Not a KTM, but it's a permanent fixture on my bike, never snagged on anything I ride. I've also used the XL tool bottles for long rides and sometimes a bottle just for refilling my main bottle.
  16. Also check your rim tape has not shifted or damaged.
  17. I have Phenom on roadie and Power on mtb. I see some other brands are starting to look very similar to the Power/Phenom design.
  18. What conditions can we expect for the weekend K2K? Been raining for 2 days in PE.
  19. Built up as commuter/gravel grinder/spare, it goes fast downhill.
  20. I have a frame like that, bought on the Hub, made by BXT China.
  21. Your 26er frame might allow 27.5 wheels which will help a bit.
  22. The coastal loop is fairly flat with nothing to steep up or down, there are other options closer to the clubhouse like a pump track and some proper XC racing loops but nothing technical really.
  23. I see you are on MTB, tomorrow 6;30 from Virgin Active Lorraine the TITS(time in the saddle) group ride to St. Albans Church for pancakes etc at the open air market. Gravel and tar non technical and flat route about 50km with beginners on all rides looked after and nobody gets left behind. You can also join from Kragga Kamma Checkers 6:45 for a bit shorter route. Both places have safe parking. Just pitch up in time and introduce yourself, you will enjoy the ride.
