Im 25 and started Moto trials this year.. a couple of months ago I decided to get a cycle trials bike to mess around on and improve balance/fitness for my Moto trials.
I've really got into cycle trials far more than I thought I would and I enjoy them both just as much so if you can I highly recommend doing both.
So 2 months in I'm looking like this.. trackstand pretty much until I can't be bothered anymore. Flicking the back wheel around.. almost 180 I just can't seem to get my body around enough to do it fully. Back wheel hops I can pedal kick into them and pretty much hop wherever and turn ect using pedal kicks again pretty much until I get tired (Pretty quick ) I can do small gaps and hop to two pallets high I just can't seem to get any higher. Pedal up to two pallets high. I bunny hop like complete crap and side hops only to curb height.. manual.. no go
Introductions out the way, how much difference does bodyweight make. I'm 5"11 13'4 stone bulky build. No doubt it would help but would it be that much of a difference to say drop down to 11 stone?
I got a mod bike but I've noticed the majority seem to ride 24 street or 26 competition bikes. Will riding a mod limit the height of stuff I can get up? Would I be better with off with a different bike?
I seem to be absolutely knackered after like 30 minuites of cycle trials whereas I can ride my Moto all day. Is it best to get fit by doing something else or is it a case of just riding and fitness will improve?
ive kind of hit a platue on hoping up 2 pallets and can't seem to do much else. What should I do next?
I know the questions are vague and there probably isn't a right answer but any advice would be sweet!
