  1. Past hour
  2. Are you sure? Are you sure its not just because its a 24" orange bike? Ive attached some images, if you squint you can see subtle differences.
  3. This is by far the best event to watch, i believe kenny has a hand in the organisation f this event so its usually got great coverage and fantastic commentary
  4. Yesterday
  5. Right, that's changed now so my garage ticket is free and open I've been in Cyprus for 10 days just thinking things over and decided this winter is the time for the mini, the yank tank is where I want it untill my new front end and 4 bar setup arrives and I'm really happy with it, got my business to a point where I feel I understand the time it takes from me and what I have spare so feels fair to finally give the mini the time it deserves. On the parts ordered list is... New wheel bearing kit for all 4 corners New bush kit for front and rear, not sure if I'll go to the hassle of fitting it all but the ones fitted have sat for 7 years now. New cones and gen hilos Discs, pads, cylinders and shoes MED lightweight preverto fly, grey diaphragm and rally plate Pre inertia HI torque starter Force racing internal shifter kit, my maniflow setup always smacked the shifter housing New rad hoses Service kit for the HIF44 About 20m of various width hoses I've managed to bag some 5x10 minilites from someone in the local club too so I'll be putting some a032rs on there. On the bench already is... New harnesses Wiring harness Brand new yellow tag MC Non servo pedal box and Clevis pins All IC pipework a d 2wd Cossie cooler Modded plenum to accept IC Pre verto wok and release assembly Megajolt and all the ETIS kit, Fenton trigger wheel setup 5l of a new colour.. I'd like to up a set of fusion fabs manifolds and a GT17, but not sure if I'm interested enough yet. Hoping to get the spare subframe I have powder coated over the next few weeks and get that on some stands so I can rebuild the front end, I'll drop the clutch in and get the motor in at that point, pull the head off and get the valve guides sorted aswell as the new valves recut so I'm off the weird metro turbo sizes. After that I hope to run the new wiring harness, hopefully put together a solid and sensible car this time rarther then try to keep it going. I'm aiming for 140bhp ish, seems a sensible figure for a well built 1293 running mild boost, plus keeps it drivable. The motor has 28cc chambers and 11cc dish pistons if I remember rightly with a CR of mid 8's, I remember it was built to take 20+ pounds of boost, but they just get too undriveable in my opinion unless your after drag numbers. I'm gonna go for a dry build to start with, get it running and to a few RWYB days uneed the belt and a few track days if I fancy and if all proves successful I'll pull it apart and repaint, rebuild nicely and hopefully just enjoy it then. I still have a mk2 shell in my uncle's barn that he panneled up for me, it kinda just sat there after with a coat of satin black, not sure if I'll rebuild into that and scrap this shell off as it's had it's share of patchwork, who knows. For now though let's get it running again and get some use out of it!
  6. @Adam@TartyBikes Not cool. I’m heartbroken.
  7. Nope, just a couple of hours of elbow grease. It's had all new panels, so it genuinely is just one shade of red now
  8. Last week
  9. Nicely done! The rider at 4:50 is Andei Oprea haha. Hopefully you come again man I owe you dinner!
  10. Eeeeeexactly
  11. at the end dude
  12. Photoshop!
  13. #BIKEMECH
  14. no trial?
  15. I did a polish.
  16. Detoured on my commute home along coast starttng Pegwell bay, definitely a variety of spots between there and Ramsgate harbour. Maybe not so much if you're ultra pro, I don't know, I only see stuff within my capability and not much further beyond my ability. My ability being that of a beginner at trials on a rigid 26" mtb but having ridden mtb for years. Then a few spots suitable for beginners along the cliff tops (see image) heading toward King George park. If you're pro trials then ride down these steps turn left at the bottom and along the beach are some big rocks broken concrete structures. Actually, you can see then in 3d map view if you move out over cliff tops and rotate around. Might need to wait for tide to be out not sure I don't go down that way much. Beach is a bit unrideable down there (ie loose sand and/or flint stone & chalk rock).
  17. Hi all, I havent done much riding this year after a broken wrist and trials I didn't really ride for the last 2 years but getting back into things slowly. I went on a trip to whistler and vancouver and took both bikes with me Such a fun 10 days and tried to capture as best I could in a video.
  18. Hey Ross that looks like a Cal section from two years ago in the gully. Same number of gates. Just pulling yer plonker Cal if you see this.
  19. Last year at BIUs world championship they had a half ton rock on four conveyor belt coil springs from the quarry. By the end of the day they were so close to the edge of the rock that they would have bent enough to fire out at some rate, enough to probably hurt someone. oh wait shit I live in the UK where all risk is removed sorry. According to Scottish education teachers are to take a more Holistic approach to risk assessment. FMe that's actually in a document. Wonder if I will get into trouble for taking a more Holistic approach to my RA for this weekends trial.
  20. He who has most power. Although some of the moves are very impressive. Women,s is exact number of gates so most of them just dab through each gate.(there are a couple that really give it a go and generally win)
  21. Although I have never been fond of comps, I feel this is really sad. Sections used to look cool and logical. But there are no more rocks or nice obstacles that gave sections a theme.
  22. Saw a clip from a comp in Spain from a few weeks ago that had a sidehop bar mid-section. We've officially reached peak UCI.
  23. But they're not even sections in the traditional sense. It's a bunch of big on-off moves then loop round and do something else in the 'section' then go somewhere else and do another move. It's like TGS mixed in with an autocross course!
  24. Single move, single move, up to back out of hook, single move, 5, euro rage mode.
  25. What ? It's nothing like .
  26. I so don't get modern trials comps.
  27. Hi Jack, no, unfortunately not. It’s got a few small cracks in it. It wouldn’t last!
  28. Are you selling the old one?
