  1. Trailforks App is pretty handy as well....
  2. 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
  3. @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 ;-)
  4. 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.
  5. @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?
  6. 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...
  7. @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.
  8. 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
  9. 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!
  10. Dave, wtf kind of ab routine did you do back then? Are you still ripped as fook? Seeing as you appear to have 12 - 14 ab muscles, can you lend me some? RIP DJ!
  11. Big stuff, ryan! nice to see a tgs'er going big
  12. I'm looking forward to our TF beef over the winter period
  13. I can imagine that the spoke / valve alignment in that picture is giving anyone who regularly builds wheels nightmares.
  14. Thanks to everyone for their comments. Appreciate it! It was a good couple of days, and glad i got some half decent stuff done given the mileage we put in. @Ross McArthur, i do like how much detail you watch videos in. I also like how it riled you up enough to comment on it. Must do more of it. On the ender, I'd suggest its not as big as you'd maybe think, but it is the biggest I've done, and off the brick wide wall, I was pretty pleased with it.
  15. I really enjoyed that! I think it was the music, but I thought it had some Reet Merschat vibes going on.
  16. CZECK AARON BROWNE!! Nice riding Jan! Enjoyed the vid
  17. Looks absolutely normal to me. You'd struggle to get the 'kick' through the pedals if it didn't start higher than the rear foot. I think you're over thinking things.
  18. So my understanding if you're self employed is the same as the extract below from; Self-employed or a ‘single person director’ You do not have to enrol yourself in a workplace pension. However, it’s a good idea to think about what income you’ll have to live on when you retire. You might want to put some plans in place for your later life, such as starting a personal pension, if you haven’t already done so. You could choose a personal or stakeholder pension available from various pension providers. Or you may wish to use the National Employment Saving Trust (NEST). NEST is a trust-based workplace pension scheme developed to suit most people. You should consider seeking independent financial advice. Alternatively, you can contact the Money Advice Service or the Pensions Advisory Service. Money Advice Service Pensions Advisory Service You are a ‘single person director’ if you are a director of a company and the only worker in that company.
  19. I've been out riding quite a bit recently, and still enjoying pushing myself to do things outside my comfort zone. Adam Mcguire asked if I'd be interested in making a raw edit, but eventually had enough content to make a full video. So here is the result. Happy to hear any comments good or bad Massive thanks to Inspired and to Tarty Bikes for their support as ever. For those interested song is - When I'm Small by Phantogram
  20. THanks for all the feedback guys! Trying to find an old school aracde machine in Aberdeen proved difficult, but glad we got there. @Stephen Morris, I did laugh at the soft close door slam. #acting Appreciate any feedback, and here's a wee bump for others to go ahead and watch it
  21. Nice G. Always enjoy your tech lines
  22. Tylers video was such good riding, but felt a little bit underwhelming. i don't know if it was the lac of riding sounds that annoyed me. Boys got skills though. Ollie Shields video was ace too. Rail riding skills for days
  23. The epitome of a TGS edit that video, Mark! I still watch it regularly. So good. EDIT: Sorry I realise I've gone a little off topic with the below...sorry Mike. I'm sure it'll come in time, and it's not easy trying to stand out from a saturated market. There is some cheese in the video below, but Fabio's latest v-log had some legit sh*t in it, so much so that with enough proper filming, some of Fabio's lines could have gone in a full edit. However, anything over edited, cheesy (such as trying to get caught by speed cameras) can get in the bin. That said, some of the guys I ride with seem to watch all the vlog stuff, so I guess they're the market rather than a grandad like me...
