  1. Went back to uni 3 weeks ago and didnt take my trials bike again, came home this weekend, cos i was feeling quite ill. Had to go out on my bike though yesterday, also my brother is getting into animation and video production and has just perchased some awesome new £900 video camera :D

    Anyway went out and well my riding was still fine was just chilling out riding stuff i could do etc only my ups had suffered a bit after the three week break which was nice to see :D

    Then got home and watch back all the footage my brother got and well just looks like i put absolutly no effort into anything which certainly isnt a bad thing. But i just cant put any more effort in. I know that if i somehow could i would progress loads.

    Might try and get a couple of vids up later to show it...

    My weight doesnt shift atall as much as it could, like i do no preload and not really much "push" during the move. Notcied this for wheel switches, gaps and pedal up.

    Any tips on how to get me moving my weight around more will hopefully get me pulling off that 8ft gap or that 4ft up as opposed to the 7ft gap and 3ft up...

    Cheers

  2. 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.

  4. 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...

  5. 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.

  6. 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...

  7. 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!
