Ultimate Hubber (6/6)

  1. Hi Arandre. Well done on getting back into the saddle. So in the past there were 2 clubs..Howick MTB Club and Karkloof MTB Club. There were also 2 separate trail networks and each club managed its own network. Howick traditionally had the forest on Curries Post side, Northwards up to the Shafton Road and Eastwards to the Karkloof Tar road. Karkloof traditionally had from the Shafton road further northwards and East of the Karkloof road, including Karkloof Falls area. Howick MTB club has since disbanded and Karkloof has absorbed all the trails into their network. Trail signage has been changed but I am not not sure how many of the Howick trails have remained open/cleared. There are some private land owners in-between which may have their own trails on their property. There is also a new trail network at the Nelson Mandela Capture site. These have incorporated the ex-St Ives trails as well as some new trails. These don't form part of the Karkloof Network.
  2. Ola. Chansaw is correct. Still happy to advise on the area though.. let me know if there is anything you wanting to check out
  3. Late to the party... Can get both Avalanche and Giant at dealership prices + VAT so happy to help out if that's an option. Stock is the challenge but might be in luck. If you would prefer to chat direct to the distributor then I am also happy to make the introduction and leave it with you ..and I would suggest asking them to come on board with a deal + accessories or something like that. Well worth the PR and positive message in these very strange times.
  4. Sooner the better but realistically I can wait 2 weeks or so
  5. Hi All Looking for some quantities of 20' BMX wheels, front and rear. Most suppliers seem to be out of stock and have no idea when stock might arrive. Would like 20 of each wheel but am open to taking whatever you got. Quality of the wheel should be equivalent to Avalanche DV8
  6. Seems like there is some definite interest out there for this I will start planning and liaising with the breweries..
  7. PS .. E-Bikes be welcome Why... cause we support all riders. Fast and Furious. Fat and Flourishing. The Beer does not judge and welcomes all thirsty lips. Race Snake or Puffing Python. Long draw or short sip. In this case, size really does NOT matter. 26"..27.5"..29"...e-assisted or leg- lambasted we shall not discriminate. Ye shall not judge before ye is judged yurself.. May the Froth be with you Power to the Pedal Viva the Volt of your Battery

  11. Have a idea brewing..yip..brewing.. KZN Midlands 3 Days 3 Craft Breweries (or maybe 4) 3 days Riding along established routes and some brand new trails Long weekend in 2021 Self navigated but semi-supported (i.e. download the route, navigate your way to the on-route "water" table and thereafter to the days finish) Brekkie at each start, lunch at each finish. Fun,smiles and a couple of beers compulsory. Affordable, fun and only enter if coming 1st means you get to have the 1st draw of beer from the Keg I am happy to put in the work and get something established if there is enough interest .. please comment if you think you would be keen to do this event
  12. Likewise for Stuart. Have yet to meet a more dedicated yet humble athlete.
  13. Hi all I am putting the lock down to good use and using the time to finish a donor build for a local rider. Its a Cube Reaction frame (2011 I think) but has a busted derailleur hanger.. Any idea where I could find a replacement ?
