Wil nie hi-jack nie maar baie relevant vir hierdie trip: Wat van mousse in die tyre's?
Ek het dit nog nooit gebruik nie. Kan iemand dalk vir ons die voor en nadele gee vir 'n trip soos die.

As jy dit in die 450/500 klas insit, behoort jy dit weer na die tyd te gebruik.  In die 650 klas gaan dit meer trip spesifiek wees Schalk.  Mousses hou nie van hor spoed vir lang afstande nie, hulle raak warm en kan collapse.

Stem saam Kobus

Ek, Janco en Steff het nie een puncture gehad nie, maar ons het heelwat harder lugdruk in die "hd tubes"gehad.
Die probleem is dat mense hul banddruk te laag ry, en dan te lui is om weer te pomp as hulle die harder areas slaan.

Wow what a trip & RR, doubt whether you will ever better that one, loved the pics, Canzius you have talent with a lens that's for sure. Sadly my days for this kind of riding are over.

Hardy you and your team have excelled with planning and organising all the details, we all know the nightmare of organising trips such as this, I sent this over to my nephew in Tasmania and hopefully he is considering coming over with a few pals to do this trip.

@ Ri, sorry to hear about your mishap, heal quickly and kudus to you for sharing your beloved DR and also taking on a challenging trip like this.

It makes it a lot easier when you have a group of riders like the ones we had.

HD tubes wat nie te sag gepomp is nie werk 100%


On our trip I had old but newly lubed Michelin High speed Mousses in my tyres and had no problems whatsoever, and Xpat and Justbendit had several punctures with their Tubliss systems. If you can afford it go mousses, but get decent ones. Heat is the only thing that destroys them, and the speeds you do in Koakoland you will never generate even nearly enough heat to screw with them. Mousses have gotten lots better over the years and modern ones are the best solution in my experience. It does feel different from tubes but you get used to it very quickly.
18 till I die.

Couldn't agree more. ran Rally mousses front and rear and had a trouble free trip.
