  1. Thanks all. I understand them now. Turns out id broken the spring at some point, which helped nothing. Which led me into the fact I've hit it at least 3 times on its first ride- I'm quite the basher. so to eliminate tensioner problems, I eliminated the tensioner. Much prefer it like this, looks cleaner in my books too.
  2. Awesome
  3. Hey dude, yeah I've got it all lined up, it's just not actually providing a huge amount of tension I loosened it and rotated the cage 90 degrees and did it back up, it seems to be a bit better now.
  4. Probably something to go in the beginners chat to be honest- ive never in my life had anything other than Cams or integrated, and I've not come across this sort of system before. (It's a double sided) what it looked like to me was that I undo the pinch bolt, and wind the silver rod around and then do it back up. But that's a haphazard guess. Its currently just a tad too loose to use. Not a clue what that grub screw does either. simply put, I don't want to be ham handed and break it. But couldn't find any info anywhere
  5. I actually enjoyed that. Also found it interesting how he's slicked that rear tyre. Idve thought he needed the side-on grip more than everyone else, surely? Or is it so hot there the tyre is just like glue anyway
  6. Really cool moves
  7. all my brakes broke so they're off again. On the wrong bike. Oh well
  8. Welcome to the club, i'm afraid.
  9. I feel like trials is 90% rose tinted glasses if I remember right, back when you would've had those ratios you would've been more pedalling up walls instead of bunnyhops? (So, less speed required)
  10. So I bought a Hex to be my brakeless bike, the ratio I've always run is 18:15 on stock and 18:12 on mod. Can anyone shed some light on using any of the different ones? I'm not asking what they do, obviously 18:14 is harder but faster, what's your experience with them in terms of the moves like sidehops, static gaps and the trade off of speed and power? also, @Ali C, what ratio are you running in your 2010 brakeless hex video? Cheers.
  11. I became acutely aware about how much my trials skills were actually lacking- plenty of lines I couldn't do, plenty of general things I couldn't do, So I built this up to sort of restart and learn the skills properly, not just kinda-half learn them so I can say I've done them and just do "cool" stuff instead, even though throughout trials I always envied the people who can seriously move their bike around, not the spinny people. its been a fair while and the improvements I can physically see is mental. Being brakeless for a long time has definitely helped my overall balance, and every ride I feel improvement. It's great. The frame is a little old school, but high bb's do not agree with me, it seems.
  12. there is a bolt through for the skyes and crewkerz bikes too if i remember correctly. no idea if they can be converted...
  13. which deore? cable? hydraulic? vee?
  14. I've seen worse. That front end is crazy low though
