  1. Have the egg beaters on my xc - awesome.

    Give you a lot more control, also piss people away when accelerating and climbing. Also a lot easier to ride generally.

    Safety - found that i bail a load less downhills because my feet no longer jump off the pedals.

    As for realeasing, takes a bit of time to get used to it but fine once you do, only dangers are technical uphill or being complacent then forgetting youve got them on.

    As for trials, i did just ahve to try them out, in the safety of my garden with only a couple of pallets. Would definatly say no... actually reduced my gapping and upping ability, maybe cos i was scared, also balance is tricky, you cant stick the odd foot out for balance correction.

  3. I have a few pallets and a couple of scaffolding poles. Great for a little mess around, but not too much, i prefer to ride 15mins for my riding spots of natural!

    I did have this place once that was great...

  4. Flat bars feel so much stiffer than risers, well from what ive tried. I wetn from kore Fr 2" risers to the echo flat bars, and my bike feelt completly different, the front end is so much stiffer, making it more responsive and gives a lot better control, also they were a bit wider, which helped too.

    Summing up... go for the echo flat bars.

  5. I voted totaltrials, as it was the most enjoyable to watch, Craigs got boring and quite quick, yes he has amazing moves, but it was like the same 3 moves on different backgrounds, also went on for far too long and didnt like the music.

    Nicks was very good, editing was brill and I really like the street style he has. But again went on a bit too long and I got a bit bored, also not too keen on the music changing thing...

    Totaltrials, music was good riding was great and moves varied quite a bit, made it more interesting...

  6. That was a really good vid, very well edited and just ran really smooth and well. Liking the little silly none riding bits too (Y)

    looks like that was a hell of a day, I wish I could have gone to experience it, looks like you all had a good laugh by the end (Y) shame was a bit too far away for me to get to.

    I very sure DJ would be proud!
