Q: What’s your favourite MTB bike?

A: Silverback Slider 1 for sure! I love the 2015 colour and the general styling of the bike. The suspension technology is miles ahead of others for its price range. The grip stiffness and agility is what draws me to want to own one of these amazing pieces of machinery.

Chris van Staden

Shop Manager

Chris loves bikes and is very good with technical info and best choices. He has a calm cool approach to work and is very well respected in the cycling fraternity in Cape Town.

Q: What type of bike do you suggest a beginner takes?

A: Hardtail MTB with Shimano hydraulic brakes is a great place to start. A fair quality wheel and fork is going to help. Consider a 29er if youre over 5’7″. I am a Silverback fan so all of their beginner range bikes or Titan Bikes. Both offer great entry level packages and great value for your spend.
