  1. this is a 2016 rocky mountain was recently in for a shock serves and got a new rear tire.
  2. Howzite The hub If you could choose one of these tyres MAXXIS DETONATOR WIRE BEAD VS Chaoyang Speed Shark for a alternative to gatorskins wire bead. Both of them are R150 at my local bicycle shop so one pair is R300 one gatorskin is R450 Which one and why Please keep in mind that these tyres will be used for training so got to be budget friendly
  3. After having done 10,000km on Chaoyang and before that Maxxis I decided to try out a new cheapie brand from China and settled on the Innova-Pro Transformers. Now normally when you want something fancy you get it from a Boutique. Think of fine clothing, confectionery, furniture and so on. If it is fancy stuff it will most likely be "boutique" stuff. So based on that these must be really fancy because it is the first "boutique tyre" I have ever had in my life Sew fahunseh ! Fitting them on my Giant P-XC2 rims was easy enough, I added 100ml Rhino sealant in each wheel and pumped it 2.5 bar and it seems to hold that without any leaks. They do seem rather skinny compared to my old 29x2.2 Chaoyangs. Tomorrow I will test them out on Piket-bo-berg, a route I am not familiar with on tyres I am not familiar with. Let's see how it goes.
  4. Hi there i need some advice Im a big ex rugby player. I weigh 135 kgs, 1.88m height and want to get a bike for some fitness and to lose some kgs. I dont want to ride in competitions. Mainly i want to use the bike to ride to work and would also want to use it maybe for some fitness on the road and maybe some off-road but not hectic mountains and dangerous places. Could anybody give me some tips for a make and model that is cheap but it won,t break after a month. Thanks alot. Regards
  5. Hey guys, i was hoping for some quick and helpful advice. I started cycling in May last year and grew fond of the sport and improved my gear in moderation over time. I started on a cheap mongoose tyax and now enjoying a scott aspect with some xt and deore group sets thru out. I dont think one should jump into the best gear when i try something and i now want to feel the road bikes out. Generally speaking i like cycling on the road more than i do single tracks and down a cliff and have grown fond of my Hardtail, what i like is the speed and consistency of road cycling. THen again i like to jump a sidewalk when its required or just voiding traffic. Thats why i dont want to go spend big moneys on road bike and getting limited to the road annoys me or its just not my taste i have to feel it out first. . . and those thin wheel . . . What i want is some general tips to look at buying my first road bike and where i should be looking as key point. On the mountain bike i know going good tires and a propper group set is where you want to spend or something along those lines. What about this frame to start https://www.bikehub.co.za/classifieds/164772-raleigh-rc-9000/ what wheels and groupset would you slap on it. im about 1.83cm tall and weigh about 100kg but avarage about 20km/h over 60km on 880m climbing on usual rides if that helps.
