  1. I go straight up to two wheels, I used Togo to front but when I started kicking to get up higher I naturally went to two wheels. I did have a go at this and it worked for a while, then the stacks of wood started slipping out from underneath me. Might have to get the drill out! Thanks for the advice guys.
  2. I've found this helps, normally when I first try it I just go for it without thinking about it, but as soon as I carry on trying I just stop. I guess I'll have to keep at it and I'll get there eventually. It's annoying because I feel like I've been stuck at this point forever!
  3. Bought a non running van for £100, owner suspected a failed fuel pump so he wanted rid of it as he'd found a replacement, and it was taking up space etc. Had a quick google, found that the symptoms he described could've been down to dry solder joins in the ecu. Found a service on eBay where they'll refurb the Ecu for just £40, so I took a chance and sent it off. A week later it returns, I fit it up and put a new battery on it and it fires up with no problems at all! Put it through an mot and it passed, then got a deal on some alloys with as new tyres for just £50 off of a mate. Gave it a quick mop to brighten up the dull paint, got the interior Valeted and upgraded the sound system with some spare speakers and a sub I had laying around. Now I have a new daily which looks fairly presentable and is great on fuel, and it only cost me around £300 to get on the road! Happy days
  4. Alright guys. Was out riding some pallets the other day, and I was sidehopping 6 pallets with no bother. Thought I'd go for a 7th pallet, which is then above my bar height. I get on the back wheel, and for the life of me I can't even bring myself to attempt it, I just freeze up. I know there's no textbook answer for getting over it as such, but for as long as I can remember I've always had trouble going above bar height on sidehops. Any advice on getting past this? Or any tips from personal experience? Any advice would be great. Cheers.
  5. Usually I just ride local spots to me in Medway, but with the weather getting better me and a few others will be looking to sort something out further afield, Herne Bay etc.
  6. Love this. Not something you see every day! Respect man!
  7. Given the mad amount of interest I'm getting I thought I'd give you all a quick update Fitted the hose splitter and cable guides to tidy it up, ground the rim again and replaced the rock blues with some TNN ADM's. The feel of the brake is incredible with the splitter fitted, it feels much more responsive, and the new pads with the fresh grind are working perfectly. I love how simple and clean it looks at the back now without the crossover, I'm finally satisfied with how it looks and rides. Any comments are welcome if any! I know it's probably not what's appealing by today's standards, but it's bang on for me and what I'm used to, and I've always wanted to be able to spend out on a bike to get it looking exactly how I want it to. Thanks for looking!
  8. It's bad enough that you can see it without spinning it if you know what I mean, it's fairly Pringled as such. I was just curious as to whether there was a "go to" method as such for straightening them out or if my best bet was to just hammer it I'll have a go at bashing it back straight, if not it'll have to be a new rim. cheers guys!
  9. Hi all. Decided to take my friends front wheel apart to replace the nipples, as it was horribly buckled and I had no way of truing it. I've pulled the wheel apart and the rim itself has remained buckled. Is there any way of getting it a bit straighter prior to rebuilding? Or is there a technique for building the buckle out as such? Thanks.
  10. Quite liked that. Tree move at 0:30 was cool.
  11. So I thought it was time for a new frame as I've recently got the bug to ride again. First ride was great, felt nice and flicky, got a few issues to sort like the rear hose length and the tape holding it to the frame. will post updated photos with a tidier setup, I plan to use a hose splitter to get rid of the crossover, and some stick on hose clips to clean the routing up and get rid of the tape! Spec is as follows. '09 Echo Lite Frame Echo Urban forks Trialtech hi-rise bars on a Trialtech forged stem Echo SL headset Front wheel: Echo Urban rim on a Hope Pro 2 hub Echo CNC Cranks and specialised platform pedals VP Bottom Bracket Rear wheel: Echo SL rim on a Chris King hub Kenda front tyre Maxxis rear tyre Front brake is a shimano deore Rear is a hs33 with CNC backed Rockman Blues I think that's everything. Thanks for looking!
  12. Yeah I had the forks and front wheel, not a the back one though! Miss it like mad, haven't found anything that rode that well since
  13. Dob magnesium with a load of (at the time) weight weenie parts, loved how flicky it felt, I progressed the most on it. had to stop riding it when it inevitably cracked though, which was a shame!
  14. If that's the case then you could post in the freecycle thread in the for sale section, although being a new member might restrict you from doing that too as it's still in the classifieds. If you can post in there then by all means go for it, if not you could post about it in here but I'm not sure how well a giveaway post will go down in the beginners section, I'm not overly clear on the rules. (it's been a while since I had to look!)
  15. I'm sure there's plenty of people on here who ride mod, myself included. If you have some stuff to get rid of then you can sell it in the for sale section, although being a new member probably means you can't sell here just yet! (Provided the rules are the same from when I joined!) I'd suggest the likes of eBay etc. for now mate
