  1. Just time... (a lot of my previous free time has evaporated with family stuff), hence any personal project I get into spreads over a longer time period, but I eventually get there. Wall rides updated
  2. Hi Davies, thanks for your comments... for now I focus on pages and step-by-step photos... then I'll edit slow-mo videos for the new street pages too, but not sure about the added text yet as all the info is on the pages... Will depend on my time budget
  3. Just added a Decade... preparing the G-turn
  4. That's an idea, at last some video tutorials that go beyond just filming the move, well impressed with the explanation details too.
  5. Just added a street menu on TrashZen, and my first page is online... This one is mostly looking at the differences between street and pure comp geometries and how those are felt in riding... I am also preparing some street-specific tutorials too so watch out as those build up on the site, step-by-step as usual. Also working on a more readable layout... something like the screen shot below, but it's not ready yet for full roll-out... Any feedback welcome. Cheers
  6. Bunny hop practice, with a bump
  7. My glorious Console in the last sunny hours of the day.
  8. Wall riding on some wobbly doors...(from a couple of days ago) Love my Inspired Console although it took me a while to get used to the geo.
  9. Hey Mr Wood, yes Fischerspooner... and a bit of death in vegas for the intro... old stuff but still good.
  10. I'll give it an open go on my next ride, just to break the mold again... but I am pretty sure I'll miss the plunging cantilever effect of rolled forward bars.... mmm...
  11. Hey Ali, Thanks for your comments. I understand from someone riding mostly urban on a 24" rig, and every now and then, I revert to a normal bar setup just to ease up on bunny hops and comfort... But then it feels awkwards when trying to do gaps to front wheel and hooks... so its' really a compromise... would be good to have "one-click" two-positions adjustable bars...(an idea for trialtech?) Never really tried a streety 24" on such moves... but maybe that's be the way forward.
  12. Sharing some riding in the murky woods of Orsay, more particularly a zone that was devastated by winter storms some years ago, featuring plenty of rotting wood logs, slippery roots and springy branches (I've been catapulted by a few overzealous ones). I edited it a bit Blair-witch-style because even when summer is on, these woods are cold and fungy and a bit eery. Hope you enjoy...that's the vid on top... http://www.trashzen.com/video-webmaster-lines.php Cheers
  13. How to ruin a sunny WE... I was in ZE woods doing some gaps to front wheel, log to log, when my stem went into its best snappage mode, upon landing... annoyingly, it was only a few month old.
  14. Adjusted my bars further down today, with the brake levers about 30 degrees below horizontal, that s yet another sensation. Exploring another zone... I think I got used to steep down levers when practising static hops and hooked statics, it really helped... but for other transitions, yes, the wrist position was a bit extreme.
  15. Interesting comments... I like the new bar position, but maybe the levers could be tuned... I'll experiment further this WE just to break the habit and see how it feels... Or maybe I am becoming rusty :'( in the wrists.
