  1. 2020 used to be called the worst year ever, regardless are you agree with it or not, it made a decent changes in our lives. It did not affected my riding directly, but during the 16 years of constant dedication to sport I used to like, last couple of years I started feeling a bit tired and disappointed. This video is the last in the way it used to be. I am not saying 'Good bye', I would like to say 'Thanks for the good times and see you on the other side!'. Keep moving forward!
  2. Made my evening, thanks for uploading!
  3. Thanks for the feedback! Motivates a lot
  4. Winter of 2019-2020 was uncommonly 'warm' and I had a good opportunity to ride outdoors on good old street spots along with exploring neighborhood I had moved to last year. Tried to find various spots and cover interesting locations. Usually I used to have filmed my first outdoors clips by the end of March, but this time I have already made my first video (and hopefully last that I edited in sony vegas . Still have not decided, if I should just upload clips to gram or do vlogs instead? Is there still any point in video parts? May be I should make shorter pieces? I like riding and filming, but have doubts about sharing way. I have no answer, feel free to write your opinion. Hope that all this corona shit will be over and no one of us or our families will suffer. Wish you stay safe and healthy!
  5. Long waited one, glad to see a new profile from you after a while. Can't select any single line because whole edit is something completely different from what trials used to be nowadays. Good job!
  6. By the mid of autumn I built my trials bike again and filmed some clips before rainy estonian winter has started. In the beginning I planed to use this material for the next video profile, but afterwards changed my mind and decided that it would be better to film fresh footage in a new year. As a result I made this small edit.. Have a nice winter holidays! See you in the next year!
  7. Definitely best video I have seen this year, or even couple of last years. It is just brilliant, good work from both of you! This is what street trials used to be about, creativity and unique spots, that most of the riders pass by without giving a second look. I liked everything starting from curb lines (especially spin combos on the back wheel) and ending with technical front wheel bangers. Hope that more videos like this will be filmed in future)
  8. 2019 riding season was quite messed up for me, have not ridden much, but still got some clips to edit. Expected more from my 15th riding year, but glad that I am still in game. Cheers.
  9. Thanks for the feedback!
  10. Last trick
  11. Thanks Mark! Nowadays you won't see a street trials bike with rim brakes (especially v brakes) so often
  12. Thanks! May be 10 years of riding street bmx affected it in this way. Too slow for bmx, but too bmxy for trials
  13. Most of the lines are perfect, without jerky moves or correction hops, just smooth and clean. Looks like it took plenty of hours to film, but you did it in 3 days. Even big drops are performed so easily, like if it was a 2ft ledge. Nice one!
  14. Every following video of yours brings at least couple of WTF clips for me. Strange, but this time it was a simple abubaca somewhere in the middle of the video. But wait.. it was done on a sharp corner on a brakeless bike, as well as several lines with straight-to-back wheel bunny hops. Skills of riding down/off obstacles also need to be mentioned. As I like doing wallrides myself, pedal up off the ledge to wallride and gap to curb walltap (?) are my fav clips. Bump jump variations are good. Keep on going, try not to focus on negative vibes. Every single video could not be perfect, but brakeless trials is amazing itself. Good luck in future projects!
  15. After a year off trials I build my bike back and last five weeks was focused on filming this video part. Lower back issues do not disturb me as much, so hopefully there are more projects to come. I'm glad that I can ride ST again, this bike gives me opportunity to explore different places and ride whatever spots I see, from streets and parks to stones and trees. Thanks for watching!
  16. Chill and smooth, amazing spots on the seashore)
  17. Thanks everyone for the good words! Was really glad to read, motivates a lot. I used to like this song for years, planned to use it in a some black and white video long time ago. But every time it went up to editing I thought, that the clips ain't too good for using one of my fav songs. This time everything went smooth and ended with this video part)

  19. Smooth and powerful at the same time! Front wheel moves are simply the best. Need to re-watch it a couple of times more
  20. It has 120 engagement points, so it is good enough for trials) I use it for a year with no problems so far + it costs only 99 $ on eBay.
  21. Thanks for the replies mates)
  22. Back in the days when I rode trials I used to f*ck up my bike in by beginning of a new season. This year I am glad to start with a "brand new". For a long time I had an idea building a mod that would have advantages of a bmx bike on the streets, but was still suitable for some trials jibs. I was not sure what geo and parts it should have, so build it as an experimental bike. After testing it for a month I can say that I reached my goal. I can do things (on same level) that I did on a my mod bike 9 years ago, plus I got a bike with pretty close geo to my bmx.
