  2. Hey Guys, As its MTB related and I thought i'd advertise it for sale in here instead....I'm selling my old SC 5010 CC frame and fox 34 fork for £1400 plus postage Its in great nick, and i'm only selling because i upgraded to a Bronson. If you're interested, give me a PM and let me know. Cheers Ben
  3. Seems like i'd be ripping you off with the mars I'll have to decline
  4. Bloody hell, @DangerousDave, you only went and won. Congrats. When i watched initially I was might impressed at the speed you took some of those skinnies!
  5. Just tried this out....exactly what i've been after. It makes FB bearable
  7. So, I should probably say that the seatpost in my new bike build video was the same one i've been running in my 2019 Arcade for about a year, and with everything i've thrown at it (including many many crashes and awkward landings), i've had no issues with the frame or that junction of the frame. The reason i cut it so short was for last years arcade I wanted to get it as light as possible when i first built it up (Carbon spacers, ti-bolts etc). I'd leave it at the 100mm if i were you, i doubt you'd save much more weight trimming it down to where i have done.
  8. One afternoon. Absolute madness to be able to pull all that out of the bag. Such good riding throughout, and edit was good too, Mark! On another note, I haven't read it in a while, but I can't help but think that if more comp / TGS trials riders made videos like this more often I think the number of topics and conversations about trials being 'dead' would be significantly reduced. If people were willing to put more into the scene there would surely be more of a scene. Maybe i didn't need to open that conversation though....sorry
  9. So many good lines, Flipp! Amongst many other ridiculous lines, the hook90 on that wall / rail is just silly ridiculous.
  10. Totally agree with all of this. Unless you're buying the full brake and it comes with MT6/7 levers then I'd just stick with MT2/4 Levers
  11. This is pretty damn good. You should watch it.
  12. Nice lads. Liked Flipp’s tekkers lines on the back of benches in hull
  13. Some interesting methods of SPAM bots right there....
  14. Holy Moly, take his wig off, and that might drop some weight for you. Glad he's doing well though!!
  15. for the lazy ones:
  16. Trailforks App is pretty handy as well....
  17. Once you've applied to the bank to remortgage your house, then paid for the hubs, then received the hubs, and then enjoyed their beauty before buildng them into wheels, and finally taken them out for a ride. Just you make sure, before that first gap to a hand rail, that you've got that email saved in your inbox... /cynicaloldman
  18. @TB_Python, st nicks is fine still plenty of alright stuff to ride! Some stuff not great in the wet but it’s all there for you fair weather boys ;-)
  19. As i assume we're all looking at this from a trials perspective, obviously it's not aimed at what we do and the pressures we put through hubs compared to say, going up hill with a 32th front cog and a 46 tooth rear cog. lets assume its been well tested for use on the mtbs....but in terms of your question archie, i wouldn't wanna risk riding trials on this with 1 pawl engaging at a time. Even with flex.
  20. @Ali C, are you still running I9 hubs? how do you rate compared to Hope in terms of engagement reliability? Would you / will you be running one of these hubs on the trially?
  21. I hope you're going to change that tensioner out for a shimano 105 mech with a 50mm piece of gear cable to sort get the right position...
  22. @greg1040 Check yourself oot... can you miss trials? its still there. Get yourself get back involved. What has changed is the TGS'ers have stopped making videos like they used to, then blamed street trials for it. I moved to street trials as i'd been riding barges for too long and got tired of sidehopping / maxed out on my hops. The change to my inspired made trials fun again for me. Change is good for you. Don't be stuck in your ways.
  23. Chainrings were so big back then that knee guards were more necessary than worrying about your flares catching. Although the flares did give the middleburns that solid polished look
  24. Dave, I've got a spark and its an awesome little bit of kit. The battery lifes a little crap though 13-14 mins per battery at max really, but the footage and picture quality is good enough to make up for that. Uses the same software as the other drones too, so thats a nice bonus if you ever upgrade. If you can get one for a decent price, then i'd say go for it!
