  1. Insane riding, I could just do without the tackiness to it but that seems to be his style. I'd much rather see a solid three minutes of riding than all the riding through an office type stuff.
  2. I've wanted to make a good ol' fashioned trials bike riding video for a while now, at least something a bit more than a clip show. I had a solid weekend of managing to go riding for a few hours both days and actually managed to get a fair amount of clips I'm reasonably happy with. I feel like it's been lame since youtube started copyrighting songs but I'll do something with these clips yet.
  3. That was awesome, really liked the face pace and the angels were all on point
  4. The editing pains me, it's a good sidehop and all but I feel like I was watching black screens and having your name chucked at me more than anything.
  5. Fakies I learned by doing them really slowly - I went to a steep hill and just did trackstands until I was good at letting the bike role back a bit. From there it was just little by little until I could keep going for a while. Like dk2 said, when you get comfortable using pedal pressure to allow the bike to roll backwards you're on your way and it gets easier from there.
  6. Anyone else on here partial to a long days cycling too? Last year I was doing two 100 miles rides a month or so and been getting back into it with the longer days. I set a goal of doing a 200 miles within 24 hours ride just for kicks, my best is 153 miles but that was knowing the route by heart in perfect conditions. Any long distance tales or tips?
  7. Like one of these bad boys?
  8. Loved that, could have watched that for quite a while longer. Riding, filming and song choice were all
  9. Nice, big riding and Smack My Bitch Up. Felt like I went back in time for a while
  10. I would say treat it as much like a wheelie as possible, same body position sitting back with arms straight. I got stuck at the half crank point for ages but I got it over it more by imaging making circles with my pedalling whereas before it felt very much 'right foot down, left foot up'.
  11. Sounds like... you could cut the mustard
  12. Going to rant about bikes again, I'm at my wits end with this now. It's been a year and I've had two Saint calipers snap on me and just had my third chain snap. I don't know if I'm just being an idiot but I want to blame the horizontal dropouts, only because whenever I had a tensioner I only had a chain snap once. Looking at another weekend with a broken bike and it's just painful having sat in at work all week looking forward to a proper ride only to have it snap pedalling around on curbs. I'm half tempted to blow a load of money and just get a new bike but the worst part is I'm not a fan of the Inspired colour schemes of late - I want my default white/black taste to be satiable gosh darnit.
  13. Hopefully this is me being an idiot but I've stuck a BB7 on my bike and can't get rid of the rubbing. The little prong thing coming off the pad is making contact with the post mount I'm using so it's always being pushed slightly out at an angle as a result. The calipers aligned okay besides this I think, so what am I doing oh so wrong here?

  15. Ordered a BB7 from Chain Reaction Cycles on Sunday and was told today it's been damaged in transit and disposed of, and also now it's out of stock. They offer a refund but I asked when it will be back in stock, they say they don't know. I ask can I hold the order until it is, they say 'no', I say but it was £25 off when I gave the money for it so would they not honour that price and have since gotten nowhere. Very frustrating, and this is after last weekend having bought a rotor and new pads for my Saint only to find that the calliper's cracked, and this was the warranty Saint I had after they cracked the first time. Very frustrating.
