  1. Hi Hubbers.... Does anyone know off virtual spinning classes available online or Tablet Apps where you can subscribe and do some indoor spinning sessions? Don't have a smart trainer so only something I can do with normal spinning bike and add some fun and decent workouts ?
  2. Quick question for those who use a Stages PM. I have the new Gen3 Carbon on my mtb. When riding hard off road i get 2 or 3 instant (less than 1 second) power and cadence spikes often while going down hill. They are 2,000w+ and cadence well above 200. It's nothing 'major' but it's just irritating. I use it with a Garmin Edge 820. My issue is that once my ride gets uploaded to GarminConnect and thus Strava automatically, the max power and max cadence values are wrong with no way to remove/correct them. I've tried using stages-link as i can apply the power/cadence rules to remove the spikes, but stages-link still uploads the original data to Strava with power/cadence spikes? Is there a way where the power/cadence spikes are removed before it gets onto Strava?
  3. Would you buy a Stages power crank or a 4iiii power crank for R2500 less? I can get a stages for R14500 or a 4iiii for R11000. Should I buy the 4iiii? Both are Dura ace crank arms.
  4. I'm currently riding a Scott Spark 930 and I've upgraded it to a XT 1x11 and I have a XT stages power meter on it. I really enjoy the ride and I'm considering a new set of wheels (American Classic Wide) or "maybe" carbon South Industries. The issues comes in when you start looking at the numbers to upgrade VS buying new. My core challenge I have with "upgrading" the wheels and perhaps other bits and pieces, brakes (from deore --> XT), is whether or not the "platform" as in the frame is worth it to upgrade on. Considering costs, I'm looking at the following: - Wheels 8-20k - XT brakes 3k - Misc (handlebar, stem etc) - R3k - And we haven't discussed possible DI2 / 2x11 config. - And and we haven't looked at the front fork. So the upgrade costs (ex DI2) puts me in the R15k - R20k range to spend. Considering the bike is 18months old, I feel I could get R25k for it second hand, putting me in the R50k range to purchase new. I'm a touch undecided on the path forward. Any cool ideas or tips would be appreciate. Cheerio
  5. Fox Metah Helmet Fox's Metah builds on their original trail helmet the Flux with the Metah adapting to the demands of modern trail and all-mountain riders. The design principles behind the Metah were to create a helmet with broader coverage and protection while maintaining good breathability at a light weight. FeaturesFirst Fox All Mountain helmet with lower coverage on back of head for added protection 10 Big Bore vents provide improved airflow and reduced weight Fox Varizorb multi-density impact reduction system provides superior protection Fixed anchor Y-Strap system offers simple on and off and improved fit Premium liner with sealed edges for increased comfort and moisture management Single hand dial actuated retention system provides easy adjustment The Fox Metah retails for R1,579 and is available at all Fox Concept Stores (Baywest, Canal Walk, Menlyn, Forest Hill & Gateway). Read more about the launch of the Fox Metah here. Specialized Power Pro Saddle Specialized's new Power saddle shape is essentially a hybrid of several current Specialized saddles, borrowing the longer and wider cutout of the company's women-specific models, the broad and fairly flat cross-section of their MTB-focused Phenom, and the stubby nose and length of the TT and Triathlon Sitero. The Power saddle's nose is about 3cm shorter than more traditional saddles and sits at a different angle at the tail end. Specialized recommends to install the saddle so the nose is level with the ground, which will make the tail flare up. When you’re bent down in the drops and pushing on the pedals, the flare in the back keeps your behind planted, rather than sliding backward on the saddle. SpecificationsStiff FACT™ carbon fibre shell tuned for support and ride compliance. Super-light PU padding for comfort and support on longer rides. Lightweight and durable, hollow titanium rails. Tough, lightweight, water resistant cover. Level 1 padding: Lightest level of padding for the most direct connection to the bike. SWAT compatible mounts molded into the saddle base allow for sleek and integrated storage solutions. Size 143mm / Weight 211g Size 155mm / Weight 214g RRP R 2,599 From the Manufacturer: The super lightweight Power Pro saddle features a stiff, FACT carbon shell with durable titanium rails to keep the weight down. Its Body Geometry design caters to both men and women and helps deliver superior performance while in a more aggressive position. Proven through blood-flow testing and pressure mapping, and featuring the lightest level of padding available, the extra wide and elongated Body Geometry channel and proper sit bone support provide all day comfort. Patented Body Geometry design is lab tested for both men and women to assure blood flow to sensitive arteries. More information about the Power Pro saddle available on the Specialized website. Stages Cycling SC3 Indoor Cycling Bike In 2015 Stages Cycling increased its product offerings by adding the SC3 and SC2 indoor bikes to its already-popular line of crank-mounted power meters. The new SC Series bikes are a line of high-end indoor cycling bikes with an array of top-shelf features.The SC3 is the flagship model and includes a Stages Power meter, while the SC2 offers all the same features except for the power meter. The SC Series bikes share two new patents pending concepts: SprintShift and FitLoc. SprintShift is a dual-action resistance adjustment, which pairs a traditional micro-adjust dial with a three-position macro-adjust lever. The SprintShift lever allows large, consistent jumps in resistance for intervals and rest. FitLoc replaces the standard twist-to-lock pop-pin height adjustments with a new cam operated pop-pin, making fit adjustments for height faster and easier.The SC3 model sports Stages' new rider-powered EcoSCRN console. EcoSCRN uses a hub dynamometer, rather than batteries to ensure ease of use and keep the motivation to keep going high. The addition of the Stages Power measurement system enables riders to train indoors and outdoors with the same technology. Data capture via Bluetooth 4.0 or ANT+™ enabled sport devices (iOS and Android compatible). The power meter crank arm provides a claimed 2000+ hours battery life via two standard AA batteries For more information visit the Stages Cycling SC series website. https://vimeo.com/145918940

  7. Stages Cycling is pleased to announce its continued supply of power meters to the defending Tour de France champions, Team Sky, in 2016. This next year represents the third season in which Team Sky will ride Stages Power, further solidifying the manufacturer’s position at the top of the power measurement category.

  8. “As more and more players crowd the power segment, our constant developmental contact with Team Sky is a main factor in our differentiation and leadership in the category,” said Pat Warner, Stages vice president. “We treat every new year with Team Sky as an opportunity to make our products even better—2016 is no different.” Team Sky will ride the second-generation Shimano Dura-Ace Stages Power meters that the Team helped vet for the retail market in 2015. As the Team strives to better their performance on the tarmac of the World Tour, Stages will continue to strive for its own marginal gains in the product it manufactures and sells to riders. “We took a chance on Stages Cycling in 2014, and we were delighted with the results” said Carsten Jeppesen, Head of Technical Operations for Team Sky. “We proved their product meets our needs and they offered us great support. Even in the worst conditions this year, the new Stages meter was always reliable, consistent and accurate.” “Look at the success Team Sky had in 2015 with the Stages Power meter,” said Matt Pacocha, Stages marketing manager. “They won the Tour de France, and a second individual world time trial championship with this technology. We’re up to 11 world championship titles across our many cycling sponsorships, and there are very few meter manufacturers that can compete with our success on the racecourse. We feel this is continued proof that our system is more relevant and reliable than ever, for every rider looking to improve their performance on their bike.” "For Team Sky, the Stages Power meter is one of our most valuable coaching tools,” said Tim Kerrison, Team Sky’s head of Athlete Performance. “And Stages continues to be a great partner that meets the needs of cyclists at all levels—from the amateur enthusiast who wishes to use power data to better inform and refine their training, to catering to what Team Sky needs at the highest level of professional road cycling.” Stages Power meters featuring the new—Team Sky proven—generation-two housing are on sale now with models available for all disciplines of cycling. The new meter is slimmer, sleeker and stronger than the first generation meter, not to mention available at a new, more economical, price. Stages plan to begin shipping carbon power meter models before the end of 2015.
  9. Seems quite an interesting development in the world of power meters. Seems like prices are tumbling everywhere one way or another. "Limits power meter smashes funding target; you can still get one if you act quickly. The Limits power meter that we told you about last month (http://road.cc/content/news/148808-limits-affordable-power-meter-launches-indiegogo-video) has smashed its funding target on Indiegogo with five days of its campaign remaining. The project currently has pledges from 1,007 contributors amounting to 212% of the US$100,000 (about £65,000) goal. You need to stick at least US$249 (about £161) in the pot to be in line to receive a Limits power meter when they become available at the end of the year." http://road.cc/content/news/152648-5-days-remaining-if-you-want-limits-power-meter-161 https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/limits-the-world-s-smartest-cycling-power-meter#/story

  11. I'm sure this has been handled elsewhere, but I got bored while searching... So, the Receiver of Revenue owes me about 10k. I think I deserve a power meter. I'm sure there is a whole thread on PM vs Wheels and all the other debates, but I'm ready to splash the cash on a PM. I've done quite a lot of research and based on my needs and budget, I'm happy to have a left side only device. Does anyone have any real-world input for me. I like the Stages, but am concerned that if I upgrade my bike, I'll need to change PM's if I don't buy Ultegra again. I like the Garmin, but am concerned about some fitment and durability issues. All advice gratefully accepted.
  12. CannondaleCannondale Scalpel For 2015, there will be no aluminium Scalpels, only carbon framed variants will be available. The range topping Scalpel 29 Team (above) will retail for around R 115 000. For this you get a 10 kilogram bike featuring SRAM XX1, Enve wheelset, and of course a carbon Lefty fork (or should it be called a pole?). The Scalpel 29 2 9 (blue/ black), retailing at R 67 000, comes kitted with SRAM XO1, Stan's Arch Ex rims and claims to weigh around 11 kilograms. The Scalpel 29 3 (black/ red) features a mixture of SRAM X9 and X7 in the drivetrain, a Stan's ZTR Rapid wheelset and stealthy black paint job. The Scalpel 29 3 will be selling in your LBS for around R 55 000. Cannondale Rush The Rush will be sold in the place of the aluminium Scalpel's, as Cannondale's more affordable dual suspension range. The Rush 29 1 (black) and Rush 29 2 (green). The Rush 1 comes with Shimano XT/ SLX group set, ZTR Rapid wheelset and apparently weights in at 13.3 kilograms. Recommend retail price: R30 000. The Rush 2 leaves the factory with a blend of SLX and Deore components, DC 3.0 wheelset and with a weight of 13.85 kilograms will set you back R23 500. Cannondale Trigger The Trigger Carbon 2 is available in two wheel sizes 27.5 (pictured above) and 29er. Both similarly specced with Shimano XT groupsets and Mavic Crossroc wheels. The smaller wheel option is marginally cheaper at R75 000, while the 29er will go for R76 000. And a Tandem... Mongoose ArgusA cheap and cheerful fat bike. Need I say more? CrankbrothersOminco recently became the South African distributor for Crankbrothers. They promise to continue the excellent after sales service that the brand is well-known for. Crankbrothers Candy 3 pedals Cobalt 11 Wheelset StagesStages power meters, another brand added to the Omnico stable recently. They are taking this one very seriously to ensure the best experience, including a dedicated support person you can contact should things go wrong. EastonEaston is no longer on Omnico's books but for now they will continuing to honour existing warranties and repairs. GTGT Zaskar Carbon 9R LTD Black is in this summer. At least GT seem to think so. Looking at this carbon beauty, we're not going to say they're wrong. GT Helion Here we have an odd one. This bike isn't set for our shores but Omnico are testing the waters with these exhibition specimens. Check out the marketing video, it explains the concept of this bike far better than I could: So did that inspire you to ditch those racey XC bikes, South Africa? Helion Carbon Team: Helion Carbon Pro: And the more affordable aluminum frame options, the Helion Elite (blue) and the Helium Comp (Grey): Fabric saddlesFabric saddles is another new addition for Omnico. While we didn't get the chance to sit on one, for what it's worth, they did looked supremely comfortable. Bell HelmetsStoker Super 2 Super 2R As the name suggests, this helmet is like the Super 2 but with a detachable chinbar. How #enduro is that? Jokes aside, we like it. Giro HelmetsSynthe The Synthe is Giro's latest road helmet. Here's what they had to say about it: "the Synthe is the pinnacle of road helmet design, combining the performance gains of aero efficiency and light weight with great cooling power to enhance rider comfort and efficiency". Giro Phase And some more...
