After two weeks of realy bad weather in Cape Town, the sun showed up, only half strength, but enough to keep the rain away, so we went mountain biking in Stellenbosch.

Nee, Suzette en Val het gekuier, so ek was op kamera-diens gister, maar ek dink die op-en af loop is meer oefening

The Tyres on a Downhill bike use a very soft compound, they are in the air most of the time, but they wear down fast and they are about R700.00 each, they are tubeless.
