    Here's a little video I've been working on- both homage to Ryan Leech and chance to build some unusual lines. Thought some of the older riders on here might appreciate it :)

    Connect bike to generator, use ghost to reduce your carbon footprint and lower electricity bills? Always wondered why movies focus around making ghosts go away, when they can be tricked into producing green energy.

    I didn't really realise it, but I've missed seeing your riding Flipp - got such a good eye for using spots, and the versatility/technicality to do it too. It suddenly jumped out at me on that line with the gap to rear jam, then drop to sidehop back up. Just a really unusual way of using a spot, but really refreshing. Also, that static alley-oop 180 gap was a treat, as was the up to rear/90 thing on that little edge on that wall. Muy bueno. Great riding from you too, Jamie! Seems you're getting on well with that bike, even if it looks like your rear rim isn't too keen? Really nice to see a 'proper' video again of some good street stuff. Thanks for doing it! Oh, and this was the first time I actually spotted your location, Jamie - where I had it on my screen made it extra creepy until I moved it up and saw the Clean 3 reference, at which point it made more sense.

    Those old Montys used to feel quite compact/under you due to how short they were which is broadly similar to the Alias. From memory the old Montys were around 1000mm or a bit under, and that was with some long-ish chainstays on them, and a relatively slack head angle, so the reach of the frame wasn't particularly long. The 20.1 is fundamentally quite a different frame so don't expect to ride one and have it feel like an old Monty. That isn't necessarily the end of the world though - people quite often look back on old bikes with a bit of rose tinted glasses, and you may find that what was 'good' back then just feels dated now. I had really fond memories of riding various older 20" Onzas with 362mm stays, a +50~mm BB and around a 1020mm wheelbase and thought that was The Geo, but then rode one a frame with similar geometry more recently and it felt really sluggish and slow. I've ridden Flipp's bike a few times and the 20.1 is really, really nice. His bike has always felt the most direct or capable out of any bike I've ridden - it's hard to really describe it properly, but it's almost like the feeling you get when you use a really nicely made, well-designed tool for it's specific job. If they'd existed before I got so settled on 24" there's a good chance I would have stuck with one of them. Compared to your Skye it'll feel like you can make it do what you want it to do much more easily, and the manoeuvrability of it will be much, much better. Part of that will just be the smaller wheels, but the main part is the geo. The super short rear end, steep-ish front end and the overall compact nature of it mean you've just got that much more advantage over it, so rather than having to work around a 24" like the Skye, you can make it do your bidding a bit more. As Flipp said they're not the lightest frame out there, but I don't think anyone has managed to break one, and crucially the geo means they "ride light". It's similar to how the Arcade is one of the heaviest 24" bikes out there, but when you ride it it's not especially noticeable because of the geo.

    Been following your build thread on wscc - bloody brilliant. Can't wait to see it (presumably I'll bump into you at the odd track day?).

    Oh, yes! Weird indeed. Marius was able to figure them out quite well - but I couldn't keep pedalling consistently if my life depended on it.
