  1. Any recommendations on what grease to use between rear cassette and the freewheel hub?

  4. Been following this post for a while, and since you started it, the wife and I have done something similar. Packed up everything in Gauteng, and bought the general dealer, the bottle store and a house in Tonteldoos!!! We are both MTBr's as well as adventure bikers and are looking to meeting.

  6. I have a solo entry if anyone is interested!
  7. Give Torq Zone Cycles a bash! Not the cheapest, but their workmanship on my Ventana service was brilliant!!
  8. Urgently looking for a Fox Float RP23 180/185 rear shock for my wife's Trek Gary Fisher HiFi Pro. Rode out to Bapsfontein this morning. When we got there, her water bottle was covered from oil leaking from the damping adjuster/lock-out on the shock. Rest of the shock can be serviced locally, for the damping it must go to Capetown. Next week is a short week, and we have to be in Himeville on Monday the 11th to register for Sani2C!!!!!!! Any suggestions on a fix or a replacement? Anybody with 1 looking fro a home?
  9. Just had a set of Flows built onto Hope hubs, 36 spoke, DB with rim washers!!!! I weigh in at 121 kg's, without kit!!!
  10. Wow!!!! Went for my 1st ride this morning on the new rims!!! Feels like a totally different bike! Don't know how to explain it, but feedback from wheels are more direct. One way to compare is riding my 1200 GSA, and then getting on my wifes 800 GS. 800 is a harder, more responsive ride.
  11. Need some advice? Best tyres for Stans ZTR Flow rims. Running Specialized Ground Control 29X2.3, and they just wont seat!! Once they are up and inflated, what a pleasure.....
  12. Got my new custom built wheels from Dave, Hope Pro 11 Evo on wide ZTR Flow rims, 36 DB spokes, 4 cross with rim washers!!!!! Tomorrow morning is the day!!!!!!
  13. Which Hope hubs would you recommend?
  14. Ok, lets put it out there!!! If I build a new rim, what would an awesome combination be? 36 spokes? Hub?
  15. I have no issue with replacing! Do I have to do the whole wheel, rim and hub, or can I get a rim somewhere in Pretoria, and someone to re-build?
  16. Is there anyone in Pretoria that can help out here. Spoke pulled out of the rim this morning, and I need to have this fixed by the morning. Any suggestions?
  17. Anybody know where I can get valve stems for a Mavic Crossmax ST rim in Pretoria? Rubber seal has broken off, and I need ASAP?
  18. Maybe someone can help. Been riding to Rosemary Hill via Solomon Mahlanhgu, Lynnwood, Graham, R431, past National Chicks, left at the school. Apparently, if I turn left into Disselboom, just before Lynwood, there is a dirt route? Ant feedback will be appreciated.
