      i am here.just fyi haha

  2. Hello, my name is Aaron and I am on the lookout for any Aberdeen trials riders. In the last twelve years ten guys have quit so im part of a dying breed. Are you still in Aberdeen and riding biketrials sir?

  3. Be there any northside riders game for an Aberdeen Jam? I've been flyin solo up here. This weekend or next.
  4. So Martyn is now called Tom and he directs WOW. Well it's a bit of a step back from being world champion but if the hat fits......
  5. A super bit of information, thankyou my good man. I have an interest in this at the minute because I fractured my ankle a while back and got the cast off a few weeks ago. My doc told me I won't need any physio and can build the leg up by myself. Have you any advice on exercises and movements I can do other than swimming and walking? And what's the best plan of attack once I can get back on my trialbike? Thanks again chief.
  6. Hi kev, I like the sound of this barn you say you're setting up. It's ideal for winter practice. I'll have to come down and check it out some time. Take care mate.

  7. Give some thought to how you shift your weight on the bike when doing certain moves. Experimenting with this has helped me go higher and further while keeping things smooth. Also letting a bit too much air out of your tyres forces you to be easy on them otherwise its punctures aplenty!
  8. A few day's and this guy get's validated! Oh what's the point in even trying?
  9. Try and hunt down some original cannondale fatty R forks.They are quite old by today's standards but they still tick all the right boxes for me and they look gorgeous. Twenty inch trials bikes are a bit easier to throw around and to learn new moves on but I think a guy of your size should stick with what you've already got. If you can learn trials on a mountainbike you can pretty much ride anything.
  10. I started riding trials in 1999. A lot of my friends were experimenting on mountainbikes, dirt jumping and street riding. We started doing trials without even knowing it and once we saw the martins in a certain magazine we never looked back.
  11. I would say practising at the amount you said it may take between 3 and 6 months to get the basics dialled. But as im sure others have mentioned it depends a lot on whether you're going to ride stock or mod, street or natural and how driven / enthusiastic you are to learn.
  12. Hi Neil, I like your idea about the olympics. It's a different kind of tool to use in terms of exposing the sport to a large audience. And there's various ways it can be done too. I've never given it much thought but it's an exciting opportunity and won't come around too often. And as for trial's parks, you can never have to many of them in my opinion. But how likely will it be to find backing from council's?
  13. Yeah if I can sort out some transport I will be up for riding Glasgow, there's a lot of good spots down there.

  14. yeah man definitily! you up for the ride in glasgow on the 5th? it's on the forum rides section...

  15. Hey dude, hows things?
