My oldschool Monty bike and the new Montybike.

74 posts in this topic

Got my new rear wheel today. Some ligther than the stock one, even with rotor and sprocket installed it shows 747g and the stock without rotor 905.2g.   But my gram weight show 4 grams more than the trial website shows.

If you're concerned about 4 grams, take a dump before you ride. You'll save anywhere between 0.5kg to 1kg, or maybe even 1.5kg on a particularly good day. 

That and the fact that if you get rid of it before you ride, the chances of soiling yourself when you fall off are vastly decreased ;)

Some few more pics of my future trial park, lol , cutting down some few threes for now, will clean around the stone wall  after, will remove some grass and dirt around, to make it more stable around near the stone wall etc.

 

The wood sticks i have left over i will use to make a track, and use ropes between them.

Here we go again,  now with another new rear tire, the pro-race for testing..  Ok ,i guess i will leave it there ubtil it will be wear out and be bad and replace it with creepycrawler or the 2.7 monty tire again later.  

Have upgrade around some places with titanium bolts too..   

 

Stock the bike weight 9.8kg..  Now its down in 8,3kg...   Will upgrade the front rim/hub later.

Thanks.. Lol.  Here are some more pic from last day riding when testing the rear tire, the pro race tires i dont feel they are so soft/damped/bouncy than the original eagle claw v1 tires, so i can't have to much or to less air in the rear tire, but i just need to get use to it.  cause i like to ride with lesser air, but not so less that the rim will hit sharp things i jump on.

I don't like the feeling so much with this pro race rear tire,cause i like to drive with lesser air, i will hit the rim if i land a little hard on corners when it feels confirtable to ride and jump on the rear wheel on other surfaces, and it feels so hard when i add more air,  the tire feels like plastic..  

I dont like to run so much air in tires in front and rear cause i like the damping feeling,  I think i will try the creepy crawler tire next.  lol

 

Maybe i should just ride it more and get use to it and test some other airpressure.

If you think that the Monty feels like plastic...... Monty's tire is way superior to the creepy crawler in my opinion, and I mean superior at all levels.

I have allready change to creepy crawler now, i will give it a try first,since i have not try it yet, Maybe im to fat to run less air in the pro race, lol.   Im not sure how old the pro race tire is where i bought it from,over rubber  will get harder,  but the tread on the front tyre pro race feels softer in the knobs.

I had 1.2bar in the prorace on the last test, then it feels ok, but flat out when i land on corners. But for sure the tire feels grippy.

With the creepycrawler i have add 1.4 bar and it still feels soft,  so i will try the tire first.,  just need to experience this two tires first over time.. Prorace tire is hanging and shine on my bedroom wall. Lol
