This week's featured product: Specialized Enduro Comp jersey

Mylene Paynter

Specialized thinks that you deserve performance without the price tag, which is why they've pulled out all of the stops for their Enduro Comp Jersey. It's made from their high-end VaporRize™ fabric that's light, airy, breathable, and incredible at wicking sweat away from the body.

And for the eco-conscious among us, it also has the added benefit of being made from an eco friendly fabric that is constructed with recycled S-Café coffee yarns. But more than just a feel good sentence to talk about over coffee (before you compost it), these features actually work to accelerate moisture management, neutralise odour and dry fast.

With the fabric dialled-in, they set about creating a fit that will work for riders over the entire mountain - not too loose, not too tight - and they'd like to think that they’ve nailed it. You'll find the roominess to be just right, and there's still plenty of room for pads and body armour. And to round things out, you'll find a comfortably casual crew neck collar that interfaces nicely with packs.

  • VaporRize™ fabric is made from environmentally friendly recycled S-Café coffee yarns that dry quickly and neutralise odour.

  • Crew neck collar keeps things casual and comfortable.

  • Deflect® UV 30 protects your skin from harmful ultraviolet rays.

  • Relaxed Mountain Bike Fit is generous, comfortable, and leaves plenty of room for elbow pads and light armour.

  • Now available in-store at Greg Minnaar Cycles!

This week's featured product: Santa Cruz Palmdale Grips (black)

Mylene Paynter

greg-minnaar-cycles-santa-cruz-palmdale-grips-black.jpg

When it comes to premium real estate for your hands, all roads lead to Palmdale. Designed and tested exclusively by Santa Cruz.

FEATURES

Single lock-ring design with the staying power of dual lock-ring

A taper-lock core uses an internal sleeve that narrows towards the last 38mm (1.5”) of the grip, effectively clamping onto the end of the bar to eliminate twisting.

Flared closed end for comfort, feel and security

8mm (0.3”) of rubber with a subtle mushroom profile on the tip resists scuffing, provides comfort and adds an intuitive feel for the bar end.  (We also found it adds a healthy dose of forgiveness when clipping trees on tight trails!)

Long grip length and waffle knurl for maximum control

A generous 125mm (4.9”) grip length (excluding lock-ring) allows plenty of room to reposition hands on differing terrain and long rides.  The moto-knurl pattern gives just the right balance of feel and grip in all conditions.

This week's featured product: 2019 Men's StumpJumper ST Alloy 29 for R30 000!

Mylene Paynter

Get yours now at Greg Minnaar Cycles for R 30 000!

Features

All of you die-hard alloy fans can rejoice. Yes, the new Stumpjumper ST comes in an alloy version, and it may be the most radically designed alloy bike ever made. And with new tube shapes and an asymmetrical design, the Stumpjumper ST Alloy 29 is sure to exceed your expectations of how a trail bike should ride.

Our design goal for the new Stumpjumper was simple - build the ultimate trail bike, one that feels telepathic. And it turns out that this feeling all comes down to stiffness. Think of it this way: when the frame's telling your hands one thing and your feet another, your brain gets confused with the imbalance and the bike feels unstable. In order to fix this, we had to get to work on dialling-in the materials and shapes.

We continued down the suspension path with a custom Rx Trail Tune on both the fork and rear shock. Suspension performance is highly dependent on frame, wheel, and rider size, so we use our Rx Tune to get each bike to land in the middle of the adjustment spectrum, and this gives you the biggest possible range to fine-tune your ride. Another focal point of the tune was matching the suspension characteristics between wheel sizes - we developed a specific Rx Tune for each platform. So, no matter what wheel size you prefer, you'll get a perfectly linear suspension.

Steps were also taken to make this bike easy to live with. Threaded bottom brackets make a triumphant return, and we made room for up to a 3.0" tyre. You're also free to run whatever aftermarket rear shock you want since we're using standard metric shocks. And customisation is furthered with a Flip Chip that lets you to dial-in your Stumpy to your riding style. Switch it from High to Low and it drops your bottom bracket 6mm and slackens the head tube by half-a-degree. Little details also jump out to surprise you, like a newly designed ribbed chainstay protector that makes chain slap a thing of the past and nearly silences the drivetrain.

The build here is no-nonsense with a focus on dependable, high-performing parts, like Shimano SLX front and rear derailleurs, Tektro Gemini disc brakes, a RockShox Recon RL fork with 130mm of travel, a custom X-Fusion 02 Pro RL rear shock with 120mm of travel, and wide alloy wheels.

  • The all-new alloy Stumpjumper ST frame features an M5 alloy front- and rear-end, an asymmetrical design, and our 29 Trail Geometry, so it's both capable and comfortable.
  • The X-Fusion Metric rear shock features rebound adjustment, lockout, and our coveted Rx Trail Tune to ensure you're getting the most out of your Stumpjumper ST.
  • A RockShox Recon RL provides 130mm of travel up front, and it lets you adjust both rebound and lockout.
