  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
  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 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 also Curtis bikes are still around
  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.
