  1. I just wanted to say thanks very much to Frank from bike addict who went out of his way to help me at Hoogies on Sunday. Saved me a long walk, saved my tyre, new valve 4 bombs, I slashed my tyre - sealant was low, broke my valve bombing the tyre. Frank and his mates whom i had never met before stopped and assisted as i started my walk out. Frank replaced my valve, bombed the tyre onto the rim, bounced the sealant into place, used all his mates bombs to get the tyre hard, gave us valve locker gadgets and spent 20 minutes riding time getting me sorted. Then still let us overtake them on the way out ..... Wouldnt accept a thing, Thanks a stack nice to know there are some good folk on the trails, especially good folk who can fix a relatively big mess ... Cheers Anton
  2. A WORLD OF CYCLING INFO, NOW AT YOUR FINGERTIPS! In a country where around 250 000 people actively participate in cycling, a single source of comprehensive local cycling information should be par for the course. Now it is, thanks to the launch of an indispensable app, Cycle360. Cycling Information Has Come Full Circle Cycle360 caters to the needs of all types of cyclists, from competitive road and MTB cyclists, through cycling families and adrenaline junkies. It offers everything from an up-to-date race calendar, details on where to ride across South Africa, upcoming events, and local cycling/accessory shops. That’s not where it ends: Cycle360 gives enthusiasts information regarding all forms of accommodation in an area; restaurants, things to do locally … you name it, Cycle360’s got it covered! Find out about cycling school leagues, nutritional supplements for young and old, and more! Providing A Service … And Paying It Forward Cross-country specialist and seasoned Olympic medallist, Christoph Sauser, is actively involved in non-profit organisation Songo. Songo has played a profound role in uplifting the local community around Kayamandi in the Western Cape, assisting with education programmes, as well as to establish a BMX club and mountain biking group. Sauser raises funding for Songo, helping to build the dreams of young wannabe cyclists; giving them the hope of a healthier future, and a better life story. Going forward, Cycle360 will assist Songo in reaching their goals. Cycle360 encourages all players in the cycling arena to sign up to have their products, venues and shops featured on the app. A percent of all revenue will be ploughed back to Songo.

  3. I've been looking to put together a weekly, "all things cycling" related newsletter for a while, with bits of news, maintenance tips, gear reviews etc from around the web that I have been reading online and also links friends send me. There is so much info online, that sometimes its nice to have it in a weekly digest of stuff that is interesting, fun and just plain cool. I know nobody signs up for nothing, so in the spirit of sharing, I will also donate R10 per new subscriber to the Bokamoso Education Trust charity out of my own pocket for the first month's worth of subscribers. So you we all get something out of this! I am also only doing this for fun, as part of my hobby. So this is in no way affiliated with any business or website. If anyone is interested you can view the first issue here and subscribe too: http://handlebar.news/issues/1 If anyone has any tips or suggestions for things they would like to see in the newsletter feel free to either email me at: michael@handlebar.news or just post it in this thread. Oh and if you like what you see, feel free to pass forward the links and newsletter on to your friends and cycling buddies.
