  1. I have been riding 1x10 on my MTB for a year now and it is working out great for me. I have a 11-36t at the back and a 32t NW on the standard Acera crank that came with the bike. So far it has seend 6000+ km of bliss This weekend I did a ride on my road bike and was wondering if I can make it a 1x setup like on my MTB? My roadie has a 12-23t at the back and 30/42/52 FSA triple at the front. After some messing around in Excel I found my current 3x8 setup covers ratios from 1.3 (23t/30t) to 4.3 (12t/52t). If I put a 10 speed 11-36t MTB cassette at the back and a 48t NW at the front I cover that perfectly however that would mean new chain, derailleur and shifter. Sticking with 8 speed and opting for HG41 11-34t at the back gives me 1.4 (34t/48t) to 4.3 (11t/48t) and all I need a the MTB cassette and a 48t NW chain ring. My two questions are : 1) has anyone done this and is it a good idea? 2) where can I get a 48t BCD 130 narrow wide chain ring in SA?
  2. Hi Guys! I entered the 5150 NMB triathlon and recently bought a road bike. I want to ride on weekends (I live in PE but work in Uitenhage so training in the morning is a bit tough). Any beginners/average fitness cyclists out there wanting to join me? I'll probably park at Grass Roof and go from there. I am 23 and a female. Rouxle

  5. Hi... So i've moved to Blairgowrie and looking for places to ride - both road and mtb. Drove past Delta park, down past Victory Park shopping centre and up towards Cresta today and saw a lot of people on their mtb's all around... So i'm wondering if anyone knows / have any info on these areas and possible trails to ride? Delta Park seems to be fenced off with a lot of people heading there with bikes, dogs and picnic baskets, so i'm guessing / hoping it's a good option for a nice ride? Also - on googlemaps it looks like there's a Braamfontein Spruit trail that goes all the way from Emmerentia dam to Witkoppen - how's that? Anyone ever rode there? Thanks
