Mylene Paynter

greg-minnaar-cycles-maxxis-forekaster.jpg

With the Forekaster on your bike, you can forget about the weather and hit the trails. Mid-height tread blocks are spaced evenly to allow penetration through loose trail conditions and openly for better mud-clearing compared to other race tyres. Wide cupped knobs down the middle provide excellent braking on the sloppiest singletrack. When the leaves start falling and the weather becomes more unpredictable, the Forekaster is the late-season tyre of choice.

Features:

  • Aggressive XC Tyre

  • Optimised for loose or wet conditions

  • Dual Compound

  • Tubeless Ready (TR)

  • Wide trail (WT) casing is optimised for 30-35mm inner width rims

This week's featured product: Specialized Mountain Bandit

Mylene Paynter

greg-minnaar-cycles-specialized-mountain-bandit.jpg

So you like to keep your rig running minimalist but practical? Maybe you prefer to tape a spare tube and CO2 to your frame to keep the profile and weight low? The Mountain Bandit is the best of both worlds in terms of simplicity and utility for mountain riders. Its compact form bolts under your SWAT™-compatible saddle and features a simple, Velcro strap with individual compartments for tube, CO2, CO2 nozzle, and tyre lever. One rip of the strap and you’re in, with easy access to everything you need to fix a flat, when time is of the essence.

Features:

  • Uniquely designed to bolt directly under a saddle with SWAT™-compatible mounts.

  • Individual compartments for a CO2 valve head, mountain tube, two-sided tyre lever (included), and a 25g CO2 cartridge for compact and secure storage.

  • Tough, lightweight, and water-resistant Velcro® strap.

  • Tube, CO2 cartridge, and nozzle not included.

This week's featured product: Specialized Epic Comp EVO

Mylene Paynter

greg-minnaar-cycles-specialized-epic-comp-evo.jpg

If we're being honest with ourselves, alloy has always been at the heart of the EVO family. It's tough, it's stiff, and at least with our bikes, it's pretty damn light. Basically, it embodies everything that's good about mountain bikes, and that's what EVO is all about.

But an Epic Comp EVO made out of aluminium? We say, "yeah, it's a perfect fit." And that's because this bike brings all the uphill racing, singletrack-ripping fun you want, and puts it in a durable, on-budget package. So get excited, because this is the most "epic" Epic yet.

Features

  • A RockShox Reba RL fork, with 120mm of travel, soaks up rocks, roots, and bumps, and it also features both compression and rebound adjustments.

  • The 12-speed SRAM NX Eagle groupset brings the performance of Eagle at a value anyone can appreciate.

  • An X-Fusion Manic seatpost brings you some much-needed drop for tackling steep descents, but it also features a zero-offset design that keeps your weight over the bottom bracket for the climbs.

This week's featured product: Blackburn Honest Digital Pressure Gauge

Mylene Paynter

greg-minnaar-cycles-blackburn-honest-digital-pressure-gauge.jpg

WAY MORE ACCURATE THAN A SQUEEZE

Can you tell the difference between 15psi and 17psi? No you can't. We can't either, but our digital gauge can. Today's wider, lower pressure tires are more pressure-critical than back when we just used to put as much pressure in as the pump could stand. It's not about fending off flats these days, it's about grip. And the difference between too much and not enough can be as little as a couple of pounds of pressure. The days of 'giving it a squeeze' are over.
