  1. I have a titan racing rouge sport 2023 and i love how it rides but i feel like it needs to be more maneuverable at the back. Im new to mountain biking, so if the pros and cons can be shared, if you have done it before or if it is even possible please let me know.
  2. Hi Gents, I am about to take the plunge into a new MTB to replace my aging Silverback Saturn . I have narrowed my options to 2 bikes, both offered by my LBS. Scott Spark RC 900 Team (2018): https://www.scott-sports.com/za/en/product/scott-spark-rc-900-team-bike VS. Giant Anthem Adv Pro 1 (2018): https://www.giant-bicycles.com/za/anthem-advanced-pro--29er--1-2018 Which is the better bike? does anyone have any experience on these? Thanks in advance
  3. Nino seems to be battling a little. Or has everyone just stepped up their game? https://www.pinkbike.com/news/results-jolanda-neff-and-mathias-flueckiger-are-the-2021-swiss-xc-national-champions.html
  4. So I've been wondering if you could buy your dream SA built bike, but being realistic in terms of price.... Titan Racing Pyga Signal Momsen Silverback - Thanks for the suggestions Mecer - Thanks for the suggestions What would it be? Mine would be the PYGA Stage Max GX set. Which has a great all round setup, great 130mm for a good pop, it allows for relative "easy" climbs, great session down the trails and can also be used in some marathon events even. Would be really interested to hear what other hubbers think or WISH. Cheers
  5. Hi was just wondering what size tyres pyga stage owners have been able to fit on their frames. I know spec sheet states 2.35. Im running 2.25's at the moment and it looks like there is alot of room left in the rear. Would like to try 2.4 if thats possible. However i know all tyres are different..
  6. Hi all. I’m looking for some advice on buying a 29 dual suspension XC/marathon bike. I currently have a Scott scale 960 (2017) and want to upgrade. I plan on doing some stage races like sani2c. Mostly want to compete for the enjoyment and experience but tend to get quite competitive. Looking to spend around 40k and happy to go second hand. Any advice would be helpful and please can you be specific in terms of year and components etc. thanks so much!
  7. What are the opinions of using a Rook One or Scout on trails? https://rookcycles.com/
  8. Hi hubbers, I've recently gotten into the MTB scene. My 1st event was a very wet and muddy Gravel Travel, but I loved every second of it! I currently ride a large 09 S-Works Stumpjumper. I love the bike, but I'm looking to get something newer before the value of this 26er depreciates completely. There are also days when I don't feel as if the bike is "mine" as I bought it second hand and it hasn't been set up to my spec as of yet. Being 191cm and 103kg I also feel the large frame isn't as comfortable as an XL. So here's my question. I'm looking for something that I can ride XC races on as well as the odd gravity enduro. I do a lot of riding in Jonkershoek, Eden and G-spot seeing as I study in Stellies. Factoring that in obviously means I'm on a student budget. I've thought about it a lot and when describing a good climbing bike that is also a decent descender, one tends to revert straight back to the stumpy. It is the benchmark, but for some reason I just want something different. I've looked at various options and the ones that stand out are the Giant Trance 650b and the Santa Cruz heckler. I love the sound of the heckler, but just curious as to availability within South Africa. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, Regards, Gareth
