  1. Hi Hubbers! CALLING ALL LADY RIDERS!! My husband recruited me into the wonderful world of mountain biking pretty recently - Although I love hiking, Mountain Biking takes being in nature to a whole new level with a competitive edge. Im a beginner - still waiting to upgrade from my entry level Giant Revel. I would really love to set up a social biking group for women who want to ride together and meet new friends while enjoying the awesome trails in Cape Town and surrounds. Is there anyone out there that would be interested? - no fees, just fun! Guys - Tell your ladies to join the Forum! - its a bit of a sausage fest out here.
  2. Hello everyone I am curious to see what the ladies are riding. Please post a pic of your bike (if you're a lady Hubber) or wife/ girlfriend's bike. Here is my steed. Entry level, but hoping to upgrade to something awesome later this year.
  3. Around about June last year (2016) I was wondering around Cash Converters and came across this very sad looking ladies Peugeot. I thought it would make a great restoration project but they wanted waaaay too much for it. Then in November I was again wandering around the same Cash Converters and spotted her, now even sadder and hiding under some wet suits and dumbells. She was so tired of being neglected she had to seek the comfort of the neoprene and the security of the heavy weights. and someone had taken away her front wheel I needed to rescue this old lady and give her a well deserved and precious retirement. Pics from when I brought her home. Gave her a wheel from one of my other road bike so she can at least stand up straight. http://krunkrace.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/IMG_20170101_155240.jpg http://krunkrace.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/IMG_20170101_155305.jpg Was loving the details that were still alive from her younger days http://krunkrace.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/stickers.jpg Because these decals are so precious and fragile I decided to preserve them and the paint rather than repaint. So after much cleaning and careful sanding I covered her in 3 coats of clear gloss paint. This preserves the color and decals and keeps her looks. The front fork had Chrome calf height socks but the chrome was very pitted and couldn't be saved without rechroming. So I gave her thigh high white socks. http://krunkrace.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/forks.jpg Looking fantastic after the cleaning and gloss coats http://krunkrace.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/IMG_20170106_082117.jpg http://krunkrace.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/IMG_20170106_082318.jpg Next were the brakes. These are very special. They seem to be a hybrid between caliper and cantilever. They got stripped, cleaned and polished. Added some modern brake pads to help her stop better. http://krunkrace.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/IMG_20170106_233101.jpg http://krunkrace.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/IMG_20170106_233126.jpg The front derailleur was cracked and could not be saved. I cleaned and polished the chain rings and brought the inner one to the outside. http://krunkrace.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/crank.jpg to be continued....
  4. I found out recently I am pregnant and really don't want to quit now and get completely unfit and have to start at square 1 in 8 months or so... My doctor said it is fine to keep going 'moderately', no more than 70% of my max. heart rate. That would mean strolling at 140bpm, and since it doesn't take much effort to get there, it feels rather on the 'easy' side than to the moderate side. I am planning to get at least an hour a day in outside on the MTB (only on the tar road and easy gravel, nothing dangerous), and once I get too top-heavy to continue on my indoor trainer. Are there any lady hubbers who kept on cycling right through their pregnancy? At what intensity did you keep cycling? How did it work out for you?
  5. Hi, My girlfriend started riding last year and is really enjoying the riding but unfortunately we only get to ride on average twice a month. I am the culprit here as I am working and finishing up my MBA studies so I have limited time to ride with her. Does anyone perhaps know of beginner friendly rides or ladies groups in Pretoria East that she might be able to join on weekdays/weekends or whenever possible. Perhaps any leads on beginners skills development sessions or clinics would also be appreciated. She loves riding the green route at Big Red Barn as its nice and flat, we do around 20km at 15km/h average when we ride the barn. She has done several other routes in Pretoria and surrounds with me. Any help would be most appreciated. Kind Regards, Ewald
  6. Good day! I am a total beginner mountain bike rider, and I was wondering if there is any other beginner MTB ladies who would be interested in riding with me? I also want some advice on routes to do around Pretoria? I am located in Monument Park. Thank you in advance!
