This week's featured product: Specialized Mountain Bandit

Mylene Paynter

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.

  • 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.

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: 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!

The ideal tyre for the upcoming KZN Road Championships or the SA National Championships for all the performance you need!

It features an extremely low rolling resistance and superior cornering traction that helped Michal Kwiatkowski take home Worlds on a rain-slicked attack. So no matter if you're climbing with the best of them or descending like a rider possessed, this is the tire for anyone who demands nothing short of the best.

This week's featured product: Specialized Turbo Levo FSR 6Fattie/ 29

Mylene Paynter

gm-cycles-specialized-turbo-levo-FSR-6Fattie-29.jpg

The Turbo Levo FSR Comp 6Fattie/29 has the perfect blend of trail performance, proper handling, technology, and durability, delivering you the power to ride more trails in a package that won't leave you broke and hungry.

With the Turbo Levo FSR, first and foremost, you get all of the hallmarks that our mountain bikes are known for - a roomy top tube for an easy fit, ultra-short chainstays for nimble handling, and a low bottom bracket that makes the bike feel glued to the trail.

Then comes an M5 aluminum frame and efficient and powerful Turbo technology, integrating a battery, and a new Specialized 1.3 motor that delivers 15% more power than the previous version. This also delivers a significant increase in efficiency, while our exclusive Rx Trail Tune at the motor smoothly and quietly brings this additional power to the pedals, making climbing the steepest of trails nearly effortless. Of course, the output is fully adjustable to conserve energy, as well, while the custom motor is also the only one on the market that features instant pedal engagement, so you get immediate power the moment you need it, and consistent torque throughout the entire cadence range.

At the battery, you'll find that it's fully integrated with the down tube and easily removable for quick charging or swaps. It has a lengthy lifespan for hitting long, out of the way trails and, along with the motor, it's strategically placed for optimal weight distribution. You'll also find our Mission Control App for full control of the Turbo technology, an integrated Trail Display with all of the ride metrics you need, a Trail Remote that lets your easily switch between modes without removing your hands from the bars, and a power meter that shows exactly how much power you're putting out vs. the motor.

This version also has a 150mm RockShox Reba RL fork, SRAM Level T brakes, and a SRAM one-by groupset. It also features our new 6Fattie wheel system that decreases deflection and dramatically increases traction, floatation, and fun over the trail. This system also allows you the opportunity to toggle between 29-inch wheels (not included) and 6Fattie wheels, allowing the ultimate in configuration options for the trail at hand.

  • The frame was constructed from our M5 Premium Aluminum, which is equal parts, strong, lightweight, and incredibly responsive. The design of the frame itself revolves around our Trail 6Fattie Geometry that includes all of our trail hallmarks, like a low-slung bottom bracket, roomy top tube, and ultra-short chainstays. Cable routing is all internal, including that of the Command Post IR, while the battery is fully integrated in the down tube and the motor is secured by a forged brace mount. 
  • The custom Specialized 1.3 Rx Trail-tuned motor is built for the Levo and features a 15% power increase and a significant efficiency increase compared to the Specialized 1.2 motor. This successfully places it at the top of e-bike motor technology. It has many other features that no other e-bike can touch, like instant engagement, fantastic heat management, a double freewheel design that disengages the gear box when you hit top speed, and silent, smooth, and consistent output—even at max power.
  • The Specialized M1-460 battery features an integrated Trail Display, ANT+/Bluetooth® module, and Mission Control App connectivity. It also houses 460Wh of trail-taming juice, and it's neatly integrated into the down tube.

This week's featured product: Specialized Tahoe MTB Shoe

Mylene Paynter

The Tahoe mountain bike shoes were designed to deliver rugged and dependable off-road performance, especially if your rides see a good deal of hiking. To do so, they feature our SlipNot™ rubber outsole for added grip over roots and wet terrain. And to keep the shoes stiff enough for riding and flexible enough for walking, they also have our Lollipop™ inner plate that sits in a bed of comfy EVA padding. The fit is relaxed for everyday use, and the Body Geometry sole provides ergonomically designed comfort and efficiency.

  • Body Geometry sole construction and footbed: ergonomically designed and scientifically tested to boost power, increase efficiency, and reduce chance of injury by optimising hip, knee, and foot alignment.
  • SlipNot™ rubber compound developed in our tire lab optimizes shoe and pedal connection.
  • Stiff Lollipop™ inner plate delivers high performance pedaling, and it sits in a bed of EVA to soften landings and maintain off-the-bike traction.
  • Relaxed Fit for a balance of pedal feel and walking comfort.
  • Lacelock™ elastic keeps laces out of chainrings.
  • Body Geometry Footbeds measurably increase power, reduce time to exhaustion, and reduce injury by aligning hip, knee, and foot.
  • Toe and heel overlays provide added abrasion resistance.
  • Approximate weight: 350g (1/2 pair, size 42)
