  1. Uuuummm, what does this even mean? https://bikehub.co.za/classifieds/item/mountain-bike-brakes/472368/formula-gold-brakes-a
  2. In case there is a random chance anyone finds value in these, I have a bike frame box (for an XL frame) and 29er wheelset box available if anyone wants them (collection in Pinelands). I'm planning to recycle them but first thought I'd check if someone can use them.
  3. I have a few things for collection in Cape Town (PInelands) if anyone is interested. Would prefer that someone takes the lot. PM me if interested Two used camelbaks (one bladder has a small leak by the fill hole), two pairs XL gloves (well used), used 32t NW ring (104 BCD), pack cover, arm protectors (size: M/L), ladies First Ascent bike shorts (size M), tyre repair tools (no plugs): Two Maxxis 29er tyres: Aggressor 2.3; Ikon 2.35. Both have been plugged once and I think could be revived with a bit of a repair. Both tyres still have good tread life left.
  4. Sounds like OP will be losing the argument...
  5. The build looks lekker! But you're also trying to sell it?
  6. Hey Hubbers. I have some parts and books that I'm wanting to get rid of. I'm not wanting to split this up and would rather have someone who can pick this up in the Cape Town area (I'm in Pinelands) to take this off my hands. The pics should hopefully be self explanatory, but PM me if you have any questions or are keen on taking everything. I'll work on a first come first served basis here.
  7. The first number is the internal diameter of the seat tube. For the OneTen you want a 30.9mm seatpost
  8. Seems like Zarras alone will help bring this thread to top of the pile for 2021 - most viewed and most replied-to!
  9. Plus the rear tyre is in the wrong direction (can see the rotation arrow pointing the wrong way in the one pic). Can't ride a bike like that!
  10. Luca Shaw isn't dating Emily Batty! He is dating Jolande Neff, who is on the Trek team
  11. https://bikehub.co.za/classifieds/item/helmets/442910/bell-sidetrack-youth-helmet Is it R400 or R500? And does the same apply in classifieds as would in a retail store, where the lower stated price is what would apply even if it is incorrect priced? Plus, where does the saddle come into it...
  12. Yeah, I had this issue. Disappointing to say the least
  13. That sounds like an awesome build! Thoroughly enjoy my Primal 29!
  14. That's much like Giant's OD/OD2 steerers... "Oversized headset bearings (1 1/4-inch top and 1 1/2-inch bottom bearings) and a tapered steerer tube combine for unprecedented steering performance with no additional weight" Yeah right, thanks for nothing besides a PITA Giant! Similarly expensive exercise to get things aligned with what everyone else used
  15. What if you don't moto? Besides, I don't think this is a bike industry "standards" thing. It's more personal preference IMO. You can still use brakes from 10 years ago on a bike today if you wanted, can't say the same for wheels (for example)
  16. "price slightly negatable" - does that mean the bike is free if you ask nicely?
  17. The number of active threads of cyclists being targeted, attacked, bike jacked, knocked over etc. at the moment is too damn high!
  18. That's one for the books! Amazing. Can a Silverback be a Silverback if its actually a Titan?
  19. If the hub fits in the fork, surely the end caps are irrelevant? In the one pic of the disc against mounting to the hub, there is clearly thread visible between the "back end" of the rotor and hub. The disc should presumably sit flush against the hub? Is there a spacer between the hub and disc? Clearly something is pushing the disc further away from the hub then it should be, almost as if there is a boost adapter behind the disc to use non-boost wheels in a boost fork.
  20. I have another suggestion for how to overcome some of the challenges with the way in which ads are posted inaccurately/incorrectly (given this seems to largely be what the thread points out these days). It would again be a (potentially) significant task for Admin to undertake, but given how many ads have been posted over the years on this platform (and many very accurate) there should presumably be the database of info somewhere to facilitate something along the following: When listing an ad, have a selection of drop down menus for your bike brand, model and year that would then auto populate the respective fields in the ad. Much like you already have to select the category you want to post in, you could select bike brand, model etc. Fields could still be left as editable in case necessary (e.g. to point out all the upgrades!) but it would be something along the lines of online forms autofill in that it provides the relevant info for a bike without having to list all individual items (the 'Yes' ad comes to mind here). As mentioned, there is is presumably a database of all ads previously posted over the many years that could be used to gather the relevant details. Or even if it were a database of the spec of all stock bikes over the last decade. If you bike wasn't there, well then it's manual field completion as is currently the case. Granted, this is likely no small undertaking from a data perspective but again a suggestion as an alternate to the loss of comments and perhaps improvement on the classified listing system to keep things as accurate as possible. The above is not infallible and there are almost certainly still going to be incorrect listings, but then the report button comes into it and perhaps a "quick" fix for admin. Also the suggestion is most applicable to whole bikes and less so individual parts, but given what has largely been raised here as "issue" ads, whole bike listings seem the most problematic. The above suggestion almost certainly needs to be unpacked further as to whether it is workable, but again it's an idea to actually reach a resolution of some sort.
