  1. Riding with a friend in East London this Sunday. Anyone welcome to join. We will be meeting at the Victoria Park paddling pools at 11:30. Let me know if you plan on joining (07555721178) Matt
  2. Hi, I am working in Liverpool Wednesday and am staying in a hotel near Lancaster, wouldn't mind a street pedal in the evening in any of the above areas if anyone is able to show me around? Message me or drop me a text on 07795454864. Matt
  3. Missed this however if you are around Harlow often I live about ten minutes away and ride their often. Let me know
  4. Hi, I have thrown my bike in my car for an impromptu visit in Falmouth and would like to ride tomorrow. Any suggestions?
  5. I have ram maguras and an echo and always return to a well setup v. Sd7 arms and levers. A reasonable linear cable, shimano Carbon booster, can't remember which pads they are but not prices clear things and when we'll setup better than anything else I have had. Have stuck with it for the last 4 years no complaints and they are a hell of a lot easier to maintain rather than bleeding and simpler to setup, i got fed up of hydraulic brakes and went cable front and rear and have had the best setup I have had for years with the above.
  6. Why not ride east London? You won't be far from there
  7. Can't wait, still rocking a 609. Maybe time it was hung up and replaced with another lesson!
  8. I run a lesson 609 and am opting for some marino's they felt a little more old school than the inspireds with some trialtech high risers. Works pretty well. If you fancied some leeson forks I have some in reasonable nick?
  9. Leon- is the grip considerably improved and is the puncture prevention better? I am assuming yes to both but worth checking?
  10. I'll give you 50 for the frame )
  11. So that'll mean 1st march then? ;-), I'll head down and see if I can get some locals out and about?
  12. You shouldn't reuse them, designed to be replaced http://www.tartybikes.co.uk/rim_brake_spares/magura_hs33_olives_2/c5p28.html
  13. I know a little late in your week but I would be able to offer a ride next Saturday with a few london locals? (Potentially a kid week evening ride) There are spots dotted all over and you will typically find something to ride no matter where you go' marks guide is a preety good start, there are plenty of spots around elephant and castle too etc
  14. I have spent the last 12 years of my life using skate parks and have definitely seen a change in etiquette / usage since that time. I think it goes hand in hand with part (not all) of the youth today being more self involved than previous generations. General rules I used to see but don't anymore - no snaking - be cautious of letting others, don't try line after line - don't stop on something people are using - never ever try a line that someone is trying that are having trouble with a make them look like a fool when you do it first time - egg each other on but no need to be over competitive - it's a bout fun with mates not one up on each other I am sure there is more but the general rule of it back in the day was " don't be a dick"
  15. How tall is this kitchen sink you're trying to bunny hop up to?
  16. My answer to your question would be no, that is if you can find an alternative method to get up / over / around what you are trying to do as that is the nature of trials. I think the question you should be asking yourself is more, do I want to be able to bunny hop when riding trials? With any move you can choose not to do it and you are still riding trials, just decide if that's your chosen path. As with moves you have practised and now succeeded in doing with the bunny hop it'll take practise, whether you end up being able is down to your patience and willingness.
  17. I would probably reserve judgement until you understand what impact designer / engineer was going for when they created this design. I would also note they look like relative high rise bars which may complement the design as above. I would also consider taking it for free (if it was offered, not that I am of course expecting you have been offered this opportunity) as a stem is a relatively inexpensive component to change.
  18. Great job, one of the most enjoyable videos to watch this year
  19. You are right, it did feel a little quantity over quality for me with to much repetition, same move alternative back drop.
  20. The guy clearly has capability on a bike, it is just a shame I feel he uses this to learn show boating rather than some more traditional trials moves to support turning show boating into something of more substance, 3-4 typical trials moves in there which were pretty weak in required capability- on a more positive note, it kept me occupied from work for a few minutes.....
  21. Any riders in Sheffield up for showing me round Thursday? Tempted to bring my bike as I am down for a night for work? Matt
  22. Most enjoyable thing I have seen in years, last clip was awesome, fun to the max!!!
  23. Very impressive, I wouldn't class that as landed!!! but very close I am sure he will roll away from it at some point soon...
  24. I am considering a v brake set up front and rear on my bike. Just wondered what people are running and recommeding, cables, pads, calipers and lever set ups?
  25. True that!!!!
