  1. If you mean the ones with the tan sidewall? Then I wouldn’t recommend as the side walls are very thin and rip easy. Had a pair to try once and didn’t last.
  2. Running that setup won’t be a problem. I have a zee brake on my bike for the rear and it’s been great. Also I’m running a 203mm Shimano Deore XT floating rotor. Maybe if you still want power maybe try trialtech or like myself Red EBC pads. I find a rotor like that one has more material on it compared to any other rotors so it has more bite, a lot of rotors have big holes so they cool down going fast but for trials you don’t need that. It’s why I don’t run hopes or cheap rotors.
  3. What’s the main problem you are having with rotors? I haven’t used anything smaller then 203mm with a 4 piston caliper with Red EBC pads which works as a great setup.
  4. It’s still in testing mod atm, and I believe there’s one being ridden at this time. Can’t give any further details. If you want to know further contact Extension through there Instagram. links below https://instagram.com/extention.potential?igshid=v2osh03gtksf
  5. I remember him being part of the Trialskings crew back in the day along side Danny Holroyd, Adam Burns, Dave Finny and James Hyland. Sadly Chris has passed away during a senior TT race, here’s more information https://www.itv.com/news/granada/2019-08-24/rider-dies-during-senior-classic-tt-race/ RIP
  6. What part of the Uk you heading to?
  7. Claud Butler, I had one years ago and it had CBR printed on it. Crazy how popular the frames were to build as a trials/jump bike back then.
  8. Ted James seems to be producing some nice frames. He previously built Dan athertons 24inch Bmx https://instagram.com/tedjamesdesign?igshid=q37mb18pyuz7 also Curtis bikes are still around https://instagram.com/curtisbikes?igshid=1nojathjh0lew
  9. Hi dude, should be around that evening if you fancy a spin in porthcawl. Drop me a private message.
  10. Always wanted a pace trials bike. Found on google images. One of Akrigg’s first ever bikes I believe.
  11. Spanks are disc only ( remember Ali c trying one once with a rim brake ) but I wouldn’t recommend it for long purposes. Try and get a Mavic D521 or Mavic EX721 off eBay. I had no problems with them on my hex and other bikes till my setup changed over the years and I went to dual disc. Ran my mavics with discs then upgraded my rims to spanks. You can run a wider trials rim around 33/35mm I believe if you were struggling to find something. For pads anything really, I ran Heatsink for years and just put a bit of Tar on the rim and worked fine.
  12. I totally forgot to mention Ashton gave me a whole 24inch prototype bike to test for a little while which had the horizontal dropouts. I will have a browse on one of my old hard drives to see if I have a decent picture when I had it. Got some screen shots of it, but it is in the beginning of this video which we blanked out as it was hush hush at that time. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=CXgEkoxVQ6M
