My trailpark (I do like saying that) has seaviews. And I bought here 6 years ago. I had two vintage Porsches which cost 300 each (midlife crises and a big loss) Then 911's starting booming. In 2 years I sold them and paid for this land which had an old cr@ppy farmhouse and then built my own offgrid timber house. The cost at the time was a 1 bedroom seapoint flat with no views

I can see the mountain and the sea

I miss my 911's but did I mention I have a bike park in my yard (well will have soon)

Pack your bags, the Garden Route rocks

Perfect

But can it at Crysis? Or Flight SIM 2020

 

That is always the question haha.
 
The 1080 may be an old card but still kicks, combine that with the 3700X and 32GB of RAM and you are sorted.
 
Crysis 3 at 1080p (very high + FXAA) you are looking at 111.4FPS. At 1440p same settings, you are safely over 60FPS.
 
MFS2020 is a kind of its own. 1080p ultra settings you are looking at 41FPS.
 
But hey, I am all for frame rates (so lower the quality is not an issue at all for me), need to fully utilise my 144Hz monitor.

Finished this one today for my boet and obviously had to go for a test ride ???? bike came out nice and light and a decent spec (SID rlc, XT 1x11, ecc hubs and carbon bar and seat post) only thing he disliked was the seat so anybody looking for a power saddle copy let me know.

Only thing with the Rockshox is that pushloc probably the most unreliable lockout lever so I stripped it and reworked it and now it works first time every time.

 

PS. The name means beast or savage fitting of the rider ????

Meet Mbuzi, Epic Evo Comp. Wheels upgraded, DT 350 hubs with DT XR391 rims, grips replace with Esi grips, Conceal tool added and XT pedals moved over from my old steed. Put an Ikon on the back and an Ardent race on the front (both 2.35 and Exo) because the Control casing stock tires that came with it don’t last a second with the razor sharp quartz here in the magaliesberg. Will add a Mountain Bandit tomorrow, saddle bad and dropper are not friends. Swapped out the Power saddle for a Phenom, my ass’ favorite.

 

Now I just gotta ride her, been friggin ill since last week so couldn’t ride this past weekend, there was a lot of forlorn staring going on.

It's been a while since I have made a bike related purchase. Last weekend I splashed out and got this little purple device.

 

post-10758-0-93634300-1600977737_thumb.jpg

 

It wasn't cheap. Cost me $179 (nearly R2000 in SA money)

 

But if I use it correctly it's GUARANTEED to make me fitter, faster, improve balance, and skills.

 

It's pretty much like a Power Balance Band... except in stead of holograms this one is PROVEN to work. Many of the top pros have devices like this. It uses revolutionary technology called PRAK-TIS.

 

What is this miraculous little device?

... It's a 6 month pass to my local bike park.
