Hello ouens,

I am gearing up for the san2c next year. Would you do the sani2c with an RM4 or not?

No reason why not. If guys can do the Epic on a rigid, then riding the RM4 should be plain sailing.

Not to mention on a single speed. 

 

I know a guy who's done it Sani 2x on a Raleigh RM team, HT with V brakes.

Hmmm... hardcore or sick??

 

Probably a bit of both LOL

 

Wouldn't be my weapon of choice, but for someone else.....

I did two 24hr solo rides on a RM7 (and countless other enduro events).

 

An RM 4 will be fine. Just make sure you train lots on it.

I don't think you should do the sani2C with a RM4, I think you should do the Sani2C with me. Dammit, I wish i could get an entry!

I dont get it? Why is it so "HARDCORE" to do any MTB event on a hardtail? Confused 

 

Of course it isn't.........but a RIGID is another story.

Racing? hardtail.

Loving it? full sus.

Hardtail, you have to minimize time on the bike to reduce time for fatigue to set in. This happens faster on a hardtail cos it's harder on your body.

On a full sus you can enjoy the daisies a bit more cos you body doesn't takeas much of a beating. Your recovery time will also be faster after a full sus. Less damage to your poor body.

 

In my opinion anyway.

Not I, I hang out in Cape Town nowadays. It was post probably Annalee, very strong on the road bike. Simonstown and back on Thursdays. Boring as it gets but the only safe-ish flatish bit round here.

Glad you didn't see me then - I has trying to hang onto the back wheel of a farm labourer wearing jeans and takkies on his rather worse for wear mtb bike.

 

I took a bit of a detour via Eden home - well worth it.
