    Re: Show us your Mountain and Road Bicycles

    Nice bike! Enjoy!

    I'm actually amazed how much mountain bike tech evolved over the last 11 years since I started riding again. In 2009:
    - 29r did not exist. All mountain bikes were 26".

    Re: Bush Lapa mods

    Ons het permanent wasgoedlyn onder die bed. As daar bome is en dit nie reen, span ek gou 'n lyn. Anders is dit maar onder die wing waar dit uit die reen bly ook. Dalk is ons nie OCD genoeg nie. :)

    Re: MTB ratchet set

    Stripping the bolt holes on bottle cage holder or brake caliper hole is no fun, believe me. I bought mine on Chain Reaction Cycles in the UK and someone brought it back for me - one of my best...

    Re: Jaguar XJ - to buy or not

    I can't comment on reliability but Audi, BMW and Merc has factories in SA and a large market so parts are easier and relatively cheaper to get. Everything Jaguar is imported which attracts the full...

    Re: Jaguar XJ - to buy or not

    Oh I've sold it years ago. It was huge fun but very impractical.

    Now my itch is building an Exocet Off-road (less practical and it will cost more money).

    Re: Jaguar XJ - to buy or not

    I fell in love with Jaguars in the 90's, even visited the factory in Coventry. My itch was the late 90's XK. I eventually bought a 10 year old model, drove it for 3 years and got most of my money...

    Re: Mountain Top Drive

    Richard, you might consider opening it up to mountain bikes. It may be a bit short for a big training ride (maybe there are some foot paths that riders can use?) but it looks like some climbing with...

    Looks like a Connect-It bracket, available from Maizey's and some hardware shops. I built our entire drawer system out of the stuff.

    This is great, thanks! I assume your camera has to remain switched on all night?
  14. Re: New tendency: standing up while lane splitting

    So in summary:

    - Standing up off-road can give better control over the bike
    - Standing up on tar on the open road can give a better point of view if behind other vehicles (and also stretch legs...

  17. Re: New tendency: standing up while lane splitting

    Another biker down on the N1 on Friday morning.

  18. Re: New tendency: standing up while lane splitting

    I honestly want to know the reason for it, which is why I'm asking. For my own understanding if not to learn something to make myself a better biker.
  19. Re: New tendency: standing up while lane splitting

    That is one thing I've been wondering about. I've never been on the BMW course so can't confirm, but it is possible.
  20. Re: New tendency: standing up while lane splitting

    That actually makes sense. Sounds a bit too close for my personal liking, but that's me. Looking at what others can do with their bikes, I better remain conservative and avoid running out of skill....
  21. Re: New tendency: standing up while lane splitting

    Interestingly my observation as well.



    This is my thinking as well. We are not talking about off road where it makes absolute sense to stand up. We're talking less than a foot between you and...
  22. Re: New tendency: standing up while lane splitting

    Look, I get standing up in off road conditions. It allows the bike to move around, your body to move around and add additional +-20cm "suspension" to 80kg of the weight. But this is not off road. ...
  23. New tendency: standing up while lane splitting

    I've recently noticed a few bikers standing in the pegs while lane splitting and I can't figure out why. I've been lane splitting for more than 12 years and never saw the need to do this. In fact,...

    The best way to keep the van cool is to get the silver flysheets for the side and front bed. The sun baking down on dark green canvas creates a 2m2 heater in the van. Imagine it's 30+ outside but...

    Some hard cases can't take the shaking of riding off road and they could break open in a fall. Also, unless the hard case is completely full, things shake around inside a lot. Some hard cases are...
