  1. Oh LAWD. Is that a geo people want?! I know I'm not the target but cripes.
  2. Biiiiiiirrrrrdiiiiiiieeeeeee.
  3. Did you finally find someone to film that crashed more than me? Bit Ali-light? Or is he stashing for personal use? Totally in love with John's front-wheel shenanigans. That mid-g-turn-step-up (for want of a better name) on the double ledge rocked my world. Also the pivot and fakie down the skinny. Much fun!
  4. I'm based in Leeds. Fancy some rides when this rain makes itself scarce? Is York much fun? Only been the once with Danny Garland quite a few years ago and it seemed... passable Willing to believe I just didn't see the good bits though! I can imagine the freewheel woes. I'll see if I've got one in the garage. It'd not be amazing, but likely better than the Claws that is probably on it! Or did these get Tensile 30s maybe? Either way - I might have an Echo or something I could bring along to a ride.
  5. Kinda one-upped me there, didn't you! In every aspect. I don't "get" hardtails, but damn it looks nice enough to make me want it anyway!
  6. Today, I purchased my first and last ever rainbow-finish product Way better than all that Stan rubbish.
  7. The general consensus is: don't. There's too much torque in trials. I've not run one, despite desperately wanting the silent hub, because of a couple of people that have had them. Both reported they occasionally slipped through, and even when they didn't they could feel a little spongey.
  8. Wow. I didn't realised they'd moved into that market. Being "in touch" isn't my forte these days.
  9. Profiles are 110mm. Your Pashley will be 135mm. Profiles were only ever a "thing" in trials because people wanted a 116mm (with cams) freehub. They're pretty much the same price as a Hope and not as good. Get a Hope
  10. Thank f**k Don't get me wrong - also a fanboy here, but DAMN they rode awful.
  11. You know those toffee/fudge flavoured things that are like doughnuts but not round? That. Well jell of that castle park roll down. Looked at that for ages and always wimped out. The nose-pivot incorporating the road-sign goes down in history.
  12. And was better in every way for it Really like some of the things he's doing these days. The trick-combos are less to my taste, but his lines are rad. It's the little bits thrown in as garnish rather than the super long setups. That gap-90-crankflip in the last one was better than some string of ups, downs, spins and a superfluous bars at the end. No specific examples from this one, but the same feeling applies. Felt a lot more like a riding video, and that made it great
  13. I'm maybe a bad example as it's a different use-case, but I used Trialtech single-walled circle holed rims on the rear for years. Each would last about 18 months before starting to go. No landing on corners like trials with brakes though, so that might change things for you. Edit: Note that I only changed away from them because when I needed a fresh set they'd sold all their new old stock and had no plans to make any more.
  14. Reducing to one song will always be a gross oversimplification. But if that's the challenge:
