  2. Please share this very urgent warning to all South African athletes, especially cyclists. After the trauma I have experienced in the past 24hrs, I hope no one else falls into this trap. If you intend to travel overseas with your bicycle, or any other sporting equipment of a similar size (surfing, wind surfing, paragliding etc). Please please PLEASE don't book your flights with Emirates!!!!! You will regret it as much as I am doing now when you pitch up at the airport with your bike bag/box and get slapped with a $500 US (R7500) charge to have your bike on the plane. Emirates advertises a new b

  9. Hi guys and girls... I have had the good fortune of being able to ride my bikes in a variety of different places over the past little bit. So I threw together this little video of the journey. Sometimes I forget the vast differences in riding type, terrain and eco-systems we get to play in and on... And when they're all stacked up one after the other in a video the contrasts become quite obvious... Hope you guys enjoy it! Philth

  13. Has anyone come across a situation where they want a more progressive feel to their fork for for aggressive trail riding and found that said for cannot accept tokens or spacers as with RS & FOX? I have fantastic Suntour Epixon TR (Trail) 15mm thru bolt with 130mm travel on my hardtrail which I am bumping to 140mm but, I want the fork to feel just bit more progressive. Instead of a top cap like RS where you can screw the tokens in to and then add more tokens these have a top cap that has a yellow sponge cylinder that you can cut down to make it less progressive but, you cannot make i
  14. Hi fellow cyclists Voete_bike_fanie, wants to go to Nepal and ride along the country side with bicycles. I would like to go during the December holidays, its not to warm and not too cold that time of year. I really don't mind any age, but preferably between 26-36 years of age. Moenie skaam wees nie, ons gaan nie te hard trap nie . My thoughts are sleeping over in tea houses, (ek wil nie kamp nie want dis nog uitgawes), at night and during the day doing some sightseeing, getting mauled by little children for sweats, trying not to fall off the cliffs to sudden death and exciting stuff like
  15. Looking for some advice. I want to take family (3 kids between 6-10) on a train trip to Prins Albert but would like to take our bikes along. We have traveled on Shosholoza Meyl before so comfortable with the conditions, etc I cannot find any info on whether it is possible to do this and how it will work. It used to be possible, but you need to put your bike into a storage carriage, which is risky and tedious. They don't formally allow you to bring your bike into the cabin. A long time ago, we also did a bike/train trip from Jhb to Nelspruit taking our bikes into cabin (folding back bottom bu

  17. So this race/event/trail festival has become something of a bucket list event, and it's in a bucket list place. I have been agitating on the hub intermittently for years promoting the riding in South America, so I've decided to put my money where my mouth is. I'll be going through next year (maybe to participate in the actual race, but mostly to enjoy the riding, atmosphere, and do some ground research for a project proposal I'm working on). My plan is to rent a house for a couple of weeks (one before, the week of the race/festival, and the week after). Dates for the racing are April 23-29th 2

I do not pay for patrol or toll gates, so that is covered. I basically need some one that will help with "padkos" and accommodation. I will go down on the Saturday and come back on the Monday. I can tow a bike tailor if needed, but also have a bike rack that can take 3 bikes. The arrangements for the accommodation will be the responsibility of whoever decides to be riding shotgun. Please let me know if your are interested in tagg
