  13. Seeing as there are no Maxxis DHR II or Agressor tyres in 29er 2.3" in the country I'm looking for feedback on the following two tyres as a rear tyre on an enduro/trail bike! I'm also open to other recommendations! Most of my riding is done on dry hard pack, rock gardens, loose rocks and roots. Predominantly in Tokai as well as Hoogekraal, Contermanskloof, Jonkershoek etc. Grip is important but I still want the tyre to roll fast! I'm currently running a DHF upfront! I was looking at the Specialized Eliminator 29x2.3" with a grid trail casing and T7 rubber compound as well as the Schwalbe Hanz Dampf 29x2.35" in a super trail/super gravity casing and the addix soft rubber compound! Would love to hear your experiences and feedback with these tyres?

  15. Electric-assisted mountain bikes are hugely fun bikes to ride but the one unavoidable consequence of a motor and battery is the added weight and the impact that has on the ride feel versus a regular bike. The Specialized Turbo Levo SL is a bold attempt to redefine e-MTBs with a lightweight bike that has the agility of a regular trail bike while packing a functional range. View full article
  16. 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.
  17. Hi Guys Trust youre all well. Ive been on a spez Romin 143mm for longer than 3 years now on both my road and 29er. For the past 2 weeks my sit bones have been going numb/eina/dead within 20mins of my ride. Had a saddle sore on each cheek last week but thats all cleared up now but it feel like the bone itself is sore. I was told/advised that it could be time for a different saddle, maybe something with more cushion? I ride with craft/rapid sport/ciovita/assos bibs and I get the same feeling with either of the bibs? Did the Baviaans/DC/Stellies tour last year with no issues what so ever Currently averaging about 10-13hours per week All advice welcome
  18. Press release The creation of our Aethos road bike started with a question: “What if?” Download attachment: Aethos_Experience_California_8.jpg What if we built a bike focused around the purest imaginable road riding experience? What if we built a bike to maximize the timeless moments where everything disappears and human and machine become one. We all know these moments, the ones where we lose ourselves in the reverence of dancing up a climb or telepathically carving through a turn, where we feel liberated from the constraints that surround everyday life and the miles just melt into hours.

  24. Hi everybody, I have been given this Bridgestone MB-2 steel lugged bike and I am wondering if its worth doing a restore and SS conversion on it. It has Ritchey force stem, bars and rims and a specialized crank. Unfortunately the original fork has been replaced with a really cheap one. Is it possible to buy forks with this diameter steerer? Steel? Or carbon even? What kind of brakes could I possibly consider using? Or am I stuck with the centre pull system? Are bottom brackets available in this size? I have never attempted a project of this nature before so any advise would be appreciated!
  25. Hi Guys, It's time to upgrade my MTB. Looking at getting a Full Sus 29'er and have a budget of around 30k. I mostly do XC and Marathon style riding. Hoping to do some stage races like Wines2Whales and Sani. Was keen on the Specialized Epic Comp (Aluminium Frame) which was on special for R30k but unfortunately they all sold out before I could get my hands on one... So need some advice relating to other brands and options. What advice do you guys have in terms of 1. Going second hand? Heard some scary stories about expensive repairs to the shocks... 2. Specialized. Would love to get an Epic. But not sure about the Brain and the 150hr services I'll need to send it away for. Any experience with this? ....Kinda wanna just get one anyway 3. Momsen? I've seen some pretty good deals on their bikes. But their frame guarantee is only for 3 years? Anyone have any experience with their VIPA RACE ONE? Seriously considering getting this one since I'm not so sure an Epic at around 30k is realistic. Thanks in advance guys. Will appreciate any insight or experience!
