  1. This thread got real grown up real quick and I'm not happy about it.
  2. Great idea and so many good clips in there. Loved that flex of hopping off the curb at that 4:35 sidehop.
  3. Awesome, that all went together really well and that cut at 2:12 was niceee.
  4. Glad it cleared up at least, and just seen Trump's impeached again which is better than last week.
  5. The shingles or America?
  6. I reckon a lockdown is a good thing overall but fgodfnbjdfnbdfjbdfbzdffhvygcifiygvjbhijyfttg.
  7. Watched it a few times now like I did with the first one, awesome video.
  8. Looking at the Trials UK facebook page... Funny situation with moderating rules moving it closer to what Trials Forum was (sorting posts into questions, media, group rides, for sale etc.). Facebook groups seem to always go south just because people already have facebook, they're so accessible you just get every idiot posting things rather than googling, or just self promoting because it's easy to. I hid the page from my newsfeed a while ago because I was getting a bit tired of five second clips... Have forums come back into fashion yet or are facebook pages still the go to thing? Forums seem to have the benchmark of people needing to set up an account which might already keep some simpletons at bay.
  9. Just scrolling through Instagram and I wouldn't be happy with any of the tailships I saw, all botched landings and clunky. I mean obviously I can't do them either, I'd just like those who did to hold them to the same standard I see BMX vlogs holding them to.
  10. Wish trials had the same sense of decency in that landing tailwhips with feet on saddles doesn't count.
  11. I think the difference is the flu has never put as much strain on the NHS as covid has done, getting the vulnerable and elderly vaccinated gets the ball rolling to help avoid that happening again. I get the concern for long term effects the vaccine could have, but I'm also worried about the covid long term effects too. I know of a few cases personally where people are having lung bother months after recovering, the usual 'I used to be able to run a few miles no bother but not any more' stories. Hopefully, I'm young and healthy enough to get over covid like the majority of people do but the idea of going back to life without worrying about transmitting it to people I see all the time is enough to persuade me to take the vaccine if it comes my way.
  12. I'd take the 29er over the BMX for trials to be honest, you can practise things like trackstands, pivots, two wheel hops and rolling up things easily enough. I'd recommend taking a look at https://trashzen.com/ and Ryan Leech's Mastering the Art of Trials videos on youtube to get going, and then if you're still a fan look into getting something more trialsy.
  13. The constant sense of not knowing what we can do, what type of businesses are open, whether I should be going to work, whether I can see friends, whether we're in a lockdown is pretty exhausting for me. That first major lockdown was tough but at least I knew where I was in the world, today's announcement has been an upset because the past week has been headlines of not going back on the Christmas rules so I thought there was some degree of stability for the next two weeks or whatever but now that's out the window. I'm wearing my mask constantly, haven't been able to travel to see people, Zoom calling, avoiding shops, lost out of hundreds of tiny things I would have done this year and just going on my phone to see it's changed again is a bit of a gut punch. I know that's the same for most people and that way more people have gone through a lot worse, but gosh darn it's been a tough year. I almost think I'd prefer a more authoritarian approach to it all now... Or at least if it was someone other than Boris Johnson bumbling his way through press conferences.
  14. If I have to pick one it would be The Distance by Cake from what I think was Danny Mac's first video? Back when videos could go viral from being called Mountain Bike Trickster and automatically generated thumbnails. I can't not list the honourable mentions that I still listen to regularly when I ride... The TGS rock music thing never really did it for me, I'm pretty darn mellow. Jon Byrne - Cigarette Song (Rowan John's CS video, and now I've finally realised CS most likely stands for Cigarette Song...) Slackstring - Sunday Jen (Ben Travis - Sunday) The Album Leaf - Always For You (Mike Bentham - Monday) Hermitude ft. Steve Clisby (Lewis Greenhalgh video I can't find anymore) Little Dragon - Twice (Joel Bennett - Twice) The Avalanches - Frontier Psychiatrist (East Coast Trials 2 - Dave Dennis 2003)
  15. Aye, my general rule was if someone introduces their riding by saying how long they've been riding the number's not accurate. Same goes for a lot of things though, I had a friend who always made such a fuss about how he didn't revise for any exams but the story from his mum was that be was working six hours a night for months and stressed all the time... Just seems like a waste of energy lying about that kind of stuff.
