My cycling is taking a bit of a backseat at the moment. Loving trail running! Got me some of these shoes. I like the almost barefoot feel.

I have a pair of those as well.

 

These days I am running in these bad boys

Have to admit that I have not been on the mtb in almost 2 months, been running exclusively and I have to say that (at the moment) I am far more amped for a run than I ever was for cycling.

 

I think I just went over the 70 km mark from mid-April. Doing max 10kms a run in Groenkloof at the moment as I am a bit cautious of going too hard too fast.

Me to. If I was not entered for the Magalies monster I would probly not ride at all. Not that I have ridden my bike much the past few weeks... I'm still around the 10k mark will start pushing pace and distance soon.

I'm considering the run, how is it in terms of amount of technical trail and singletrack and ascent?

The more of that the better for me.

In the same boat as most other guys here. If I ride once a week now it's a lot and it's the only day I don't run.

 

My Pegasus 29s, which have a 12mm heel-toe drop, have clocked up around 1500km now and are being retired for a pair of these, which sport a 9mm drop. I'm taking the transition slow:
