  1. 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
  2. As some of you may know, myself and "Wendy" have been talking about moving from SA back to Europe for quite a while now. Our "dream" is to run a B&B / Guest House somewhere near the Pyrenees mountains, either in North Eastern Spain or South Western France. We will cater for anyone wishing to stay, but plan to offer extra services that make us especially appealing to fellow cyclists from around the world. Given our limited budget (and our love of hard work ) the intention is to buy a reasonable priced property in need of renovation that we can tailor to suit our needs. We will then
  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. Was checking out this AutoDrop Dripper post from BMC. Anyone know if Pidcock is using it? https://www.bmc-switzerland.com/rad
  5. The Pyrenees - I never get tired of looking at them. . . . . As the title suggests, I'm going to try and fill this thread with all manner of interesting, funny and/or informative cycling related things from this beautiful part of the world and the surrounding areas. :-)
  6. I apologise in advance if this topic already exists somewhere, I did search. Has anyone signed up for the Val de Vie MTB Expedition? It's happening on the 14th to 16th of May (inclusive)? Entries close on the 10th of May. It was originally a team event but now they also accept single riders. My friend signed me up for it It is 127km of riding around Paarl over 3 days. It consists of: A time trial (in their emails they keep calling it a Time TRAIL, aaaargh): 20km on the 14th Stage 2: 75km on the 15th 1650m ascent Val de Vie Estate| Hawequa Forest | Wild Hog Welvanpas | Drakenstein M
  7. Looking for outsole lugs for a Specialized MTB shoe 2016 model as per pic attached. Size EUR 43. Freewheel cycology don't have my size because they apparently not making them anymore. Olympic cycles I suspect called them and simply cannot assist. It looks like I have to call on the hubbers for #assistance.
  8. Hi All Im looking for a JHB based company who can assist with Frame protection i see cycle lab sell frame protection kits etc, but i would like this applied by a proffesional any advice ? similar to this .. https://armour-ride.com/
  9. Objective was to build a bike that can handle anything I personally ride: technical routes @ Tokai etc yet not black routes where I'd require more travel. A comfortable biike. And a fast bike, I always ride fast! Really had to balance all of these factors. Bike has reasonably progressive geometry. I wanted ideally an XL frame so I could slam the saddle to the front but this large came up second hand on Bike Hub at a great price. 68 degree HT angle so it's quick to turn and climbs well with a short stem and really wide bars. I didn't want to go cheap but certainly didn't want anything that
  10. Hi all, Cant seem to find any info on the forum regarding Pivot frames. So opinions / views on the Pivot? https://www.evobikes.co.za/product/pivot-mach-429sl-carbon-frameset-large/ I like not going with the norm, and looking into a bike build. The above Pivot frame really appeal to my liking. So bad idea or not?
  11. Spotted this very simple design on Youtube this morning Anyone with more ideas for the DIY bikers out there?
  12. Hi Guys Looking for a venue for just the wife and myself to go for long weekend in June. It's my birthday so we're leaving the kids behind (for the first time) and looking for somewhere no more than about 2 and 1/2 hours drive from JHB with awesome mountain biking and great accommodation (no camping please - weekend away in lieu of 50th birthday party, so a spoil). We both ride MTB and usually about 80 - 100km rides in and around JHB. Looking for scenic and nice flowing routes and trails to ride three days in a row. Not looking for downhill or really gnarly singletrack trails as we want

  14. Please share your thought! Titan Racing are really doing some great work lately and my I got caught into this bike: https://www.titanracingbikes.com/product/cypher-rs-ultimate-carbon/ Very well spec bike for R107k and 5 year multi user warranty Also go and have a look at the new Road bikes on bike addict website, they are also hot looking / well spec and good prices! I would like to give credit where credit is due, so Titan Racing ......very well done for improving the brand! Watch out world!
  15. My father-in-law has recently purchased a holiday house in Pringle Bay, I can see myself spending a good few weekends there, any trails worth checking out in the area?
  16. After almost 2 years of going back and forth on with what to replace my trusty Santa Cruz 5010, I finally left holy ground and pulled the trigger on a Deviate Highlander frame. A FREAKIN' 29er... I'm getting the black edition with 150mm rear travel. The aim is a more trail orientated bike, rather than full enduro, ie. no Zeb or 38 or piggy back shock. I haven't 100% decided on the build, but it will most probably be: RS Lyrik Ultimate 160mm; CaneCreek DB Air IL DT rims laced to Hope hubs Hope X2 brakes from my current bike SLX 12x group set (this is a big change for me: I haven't rid
  17. Meet the Onza Canis which I’ve been testing out over a good few rides. The Canis is somewhat of a crossover tyre, classed by Onza as “Cross country / All mountain” it is said to give a combination of low rolling resistance and good grip. Specifications I tested the Onza Canis 29 x 2.25 C3 RC2 Tubeless Ready. And yes those numbers all mean something. C3 is Onza’s Cross Country Casing with 60TPI - sturdier, thicker sidewalls for a little more puncture resistance vs. the thinner and lighter 120TPI. RC2 denotes the dual compound rubber materials used in the tyre makeup: harder 65a in th
  18. Though a little before my mountain biking time, Onza (or OnZa) was one of the big brands in mountain bike tyres and other components in the late nineties. While the brand faded away in the early 2000’s more recently a swiss-based company relaunched the Onza brand and range of tyres. Click here to view the article
  19. Hi all, I have always wondered if a large frame 27.5 would be similar to a medium frame 29er. basically, I fit a 29er medium frame perfectly but am looking to ungrade. All i can find are large frame 27.5s. Would this serve me the same or close to? (I am 173cm) Many Thanks
  20. Hey Hubbers Friend of mine started a Cycle shop with a difference.I do not know if this is a new concept in SA but its the first one that I know of.On site Bike repairs and sales just a phone call away. They are in PTA but travel in and around Gauteng. I would like your thoughts and input on this. If you are interested contact Andre 082 551 1868
  21. Good day all, We will be down in Kommetjie in the Western Cape and I was wondering if anyone knows of any gravel road or beginner trails in the area? As per my intro I only started MTB a week ago so for me it is gravel roads and easy trails to get into the swing of things. I did do a search and went through the trails thread but cant seem to pick up anything for the Kommetjie area. Thanks
  22. Hi I am building a Fuji gran fondo 2,5 I have bought a frame from a fellow hubber but the thru axels where not with the frame and I can’t seem to figure out what I need to buy ? All the info I can find says 12x 142 however nothing about thread pitch, and if the front and rear are the same size (I assume not ) Any advice would be hugely appreciated.
  23. Hi Hubbers! I recently taught a friend to ride a bike (after pestering him for years) and he's now got the bug. He wants to get a bike and I want to make sure he gets some value on the cheaper end of the spectrum. He would likely need a medium frame (1.75m, 95kg). I think a MTB is the most versatile for general cycling and (probable) lack of maintenance on his side. We are in Cape Town. - New versus used? I assume the value is in the used but there don't seem to be too many options. - Where's the sweet spot? He wants to spend 3k-5k but will stretch up to 7k if the value is there. - Anythin
  24. Hi Hubbers, Does anyone know who the current supplier or retailer is for Northwave. Shoes / socks /apparel ect. Any bike shops that stock their products and is there a demand for Northwave in South Africa? Your thoughts?
  25. Hey guys, Random problem, my Specialized shoes and XTR pedals creates an awful lot of squeaking, to the point where I'm considering chopping the shoe sides away to minimize contact with the pedals. The sound it seems are all from where the rubber on the sides of the cleats touches the pedal surfaces next to the clips. Anyone else have this problem or a good solution for it - before I take my dremel to my shoes? My Shimano SPD shoes did not do this - so I'm used to a pretty quiet ride, and especially at 4:30am when it's just me on a climb, the sound just seem amplified.
