  1. Im running a Jitsie 108 too and its been mint.
  2. Wow that sounds a bit cold!! For me its just to get out of the wind and rain. Although there aren't many spots near me with railing that aren't super narrow or high up so im sure this will help me progress
  3. Fed up of Christmas and the weather wasn't playing ball. I have use of the smallest corner of a barn. Apoligies for the terrible camera phone footage, this i the result..
  4. I apologize for the terrible camera angle but im pretty happy with this Bit damp today and the first rock was super slippy with sandy tyres!
  5. Yeah, I was playing with this last night. Keeping my arms bent to keep weight over the front wheel. Then lean back slightly only at the last minute.
  6. Cheers Bottleneck, I think im pulling the bars too high too early. I ride a 09 GU Le 20" but used to ride a 26" which i found this move to be easier on. It took more effort to lift the front wheel in the first half of the move which probably helped in a way. With the 20" it feels far more sensative to giving it too much on the pedal stroke at the wrong time. I haven't had much luck with bunny hops so far. I see its far more popular with benito ros and others at world cup level. I can bunny hop my mountain bike pretty well but it feels totally different on the trials bike!!?
  7. I've been riding for a while now and never been much good at them. Consistancy seems to be an issue and also stopping me progressing to higher stuff. Sometimes i can do them ok but rarely more than 2ft and other times i feel like im looping out and fall backwards or just slam the bike into the wall etc.. Any tips? Cheers!
  8. Wow, you actually joined the forum just so you could write a stupid comment...
  9. Good riding! Shame I couldn't make it while you were in Brighton.
  10. Ride mostly at the weekends other than the odd hour or two after work. I live near eastbourne which has loads of rocks to play on and Newhaven has a fair amount of street riding and the gun emplacements up on the fort. Haven't been to brighton in ages, worthng is pretty good too but im sure you must know the spots around there?
  11. Hey Seb, just noticed you are local-ish to me. Give me a shout if you want someone to ride with. Trials riders are a bit thin on the ground in sussex at the moment!
  12. Does anybody else think that kids are taking part in less sports in general? Bloke at work was saying how local football clubs are struggling for numbers as teens would rather just play fifa on xbox. I do about 50% trials and 50% mountain biking and the majority of riders i see riding mountain bikes are in their 30s and 40s, i don't often see teens at all. I'm 26 and usually only get out riding twice at week for an hour or so as work gets in the way. Teens have all the time in the world but most have just become lazy in this day of smart phones etc. where everything comes instantly. It takes a lot of dedication to just become very average at trials. The ratio of effort/reward just isn't high enough to keep most teens interested.
  13. Bit disappointing if im honest
  14. Cheers JKH!
  15. Wish there were group rides near me!
