  1. How's it going bud, I started getting arm pump a couple months back and I was constantly changing my bar angles to try different riding techniques and I thought that might have been the problem but I thought it was due to my grips in the end because they were either too big or too small to get a perfect grip on with out feeling like I was death gripping them haha. I ended up buying loads of different kinds, even ergonomic ones to try and help and eventually got a set that felt right and either my hands and arms have adjusted or the grips helped :/ so no real conclusion, but something maybe worth trying
  2. Sh!t bike... Do a trick?
  3. 600 miles a day is a bit steep for me on a daily round trip I'm afraid or I would
  4. Two can only dream! Haha
  5. Insanely good video!
  6. Thanks for reply. How much are you looking for wheel?

  7. What are the dates for the Fort William one? I haven't been there in about 10 years so would be good to go back. Biking, beers and banter sounds good to me but just found out the misses is pregnant so we would probably hotel it or something but I know some of the guys were keen anyways so I think we will make it
  8. Hi Kevin, thanks for the invite. Will try to make it to atleast fort William I think, depending on the misses situation, even if it's to watch, couldn't make all the comps anyways. We are all a bit of everything and all at different levels but hopefully will make it Thanks Chris
  9. Keeping it classy!
  10. Had one of these bad boys myself lol first "trials" bike I had, apart from a bmx that got the works to try and be a trials machine haha
  11. How's it going Ben, that would be good, trying to get as much as possible! There's 3 and a half of us so far haha (the half is Tony, but he's in recovery at the moment). I'm just getting back into trials after so many years and addicted! The other 2 guys are new to it and progressing well. One on stock onza cleaner and one street 2017 inspired arcade and I'm mod 05 python and onza blade. If you want to pm me your number I can add you into the WhatsApp group Chris

  15. Hi just thought I'd share my experience of the weekend just past... I was switching rear wheels from My echo disc hubbed to my non so I could put the rear disc on my project onza blade and keep the goodness of the decent tyres etc onto my 05 python. Both of which had been running just fine except one tyre was near slick and had been shaved so I was swapping the good tyre onto the non disc hub I'd be using. On reassembling and test riding both bikes a couple of pivots and rear hops in then tried to cycle normally and BOOOOOM! The rear tyre popped off the Rim on both bikes this happened, so then spent a couple hours swapping tyres, tubes and rims, resetting chain tension and hs33 everytime near enough haha. It failed and popped off the bead everytime... :/ I read a couple posts and seen that someone had used some sort of non permanent adhesive on the bead and Rim and it worked and others said it wouldn't blah blah... Me being extremely addicted to being out on my bike I had nothing to lose before I was going to fork out for a new tyre (which I was looking forward too secretly I had a tin of spray adhesive from when I had laid my kitchen and lobby vinyl. I semi inflated the tyre, lightly sprayed the bead all the way round both sides then slightly inflated it even more and left it to 'cure' :D........ And its worked so far! Test run, weary but survived just cycling. Rear wheel hop, safe! To a kerb, safe! Pivots, drops and gaps, even tyre roll and it stayed on! Might not work for everyone but it certainly saved my this time atleast till the end of the month hopefully and I'll order the pro race that I've been dreaming of =) BTW it was a maxxis creepy tyre in question
