  1. Everything flowed really well. The tricks fit into the lines perfectly and the mix of tricks and trials this time for me really does make it your best edit yet Ricardo! I'll look forward to seeing more from you again, but for now I am off to watch it again.....
  2. I have a pro 4 hub that is currently been okay since 2017. I got a new hope pro 4 2020 and that's been my issue. Without me having the same failure in the first (2017) hub I can't find out if the threads are different or not. My current hub Hope didn't use locktite but a bonding to try avoid this happening but I can't see it working.
  3. What I'm trying to avoid is having a threaded rear hub on 26" The Hope setup is shocking right now.
  4. So I'm having issues with the latest Hope Evo 4 hubs and this issue has cost Hope 4 hubs and me 5 wheel builds and it's getting pretty annoying now. I wondered if there was an option available where you can buy a fixed 135 splined disc hub and a 16t splined freewheel. Essentially meaning if you had an issue with the freewheel on this it's an easy agro free replacement and this would also for those of you who can work it out totally takes away the issue that myself and others I'm told are having with the Hopes. Hopefully something is available?
  5. Let's have a bit of fun. Post up what you think is the best soundtrack/song used in a trials video in the comments. The lead up to Christmas I'll post up a poll of the most popular ones and let that run up to Christmas day.
  6. Our house project just levelled up with me fitting the bath today. Well happy with how things are shaping up. New frame for my bike arrives next week. Pretty good start to December
  7. I really liked the athlete machine I thought that was fantastic but I think Danny is wise (and Fabio for that matter) to just do their own thing. I think the opportunity for Chris here is amazing to be put out to a wider audience so can fully see why he did it. But after watching his part again it just isn't anything on A hill in Spain or when be brought out that Welsh edit that got removed from YouTube.
  8. Had an Akrigg binge this morning and hated the RedBull edit but this was really fun to watch. Same Chris, different bike and the camera skill's were great.
  9. I didn't get into that at all. You'd think RedBull this time around we don't have to listen to a soundtrack like that, but nope. Worst one yet
  10. The flow range is designed around the current Inspired range and their team of riders and in my eyes the detail in the frame, the geometry and build quality of the frame/ frame kit is worth waiting for them to be back into stock. They've really put the effort in and starting with a bike like this over time you can upgrade it and end up with a bike build as good as a fourplay (I actually prefer the flow frame kit to the fourplay or Skye). The czar will be enjoyable for sure and looks great but I think it lack in the geometry and you would still end up wanting to replace some of those components over time/ likely the frame kit. You could get one of those Expansion bikes but how good they are, how good their after sales care is and have they been sanitized? who knows.
  11. 03:38 Does this count? Also how casual is that first move!
  12. Nice work
  13. I know this isn't specifically what you have asked for however the best tap that I ever saw on a video was this: Adrian Lengyel TNN at 01:36. This guy can pedal up, tap and bunny hop and whichever technique it seems so dialled. It's both high and a pretty tech setup.
  14. Reminded me of Rowan, nice work Flipp!! Really enjoyed seeing you riding differently for a change and just in awe of your taps.
  15. If it helps you decide, the geo of this model is very similar to that of the older foreplay so riders like Ali C, Danny Mac, Nick Cooke, Shrewsbury, Mark Westlake, Ben Rowlands and Duncan Shaw all rode them brilliantly and more recently Thom Triboulat on the Inspired team sending some massive things. So again I think it's a great idea to buy an entry level bike like this that has the capabilities it has. You could get one of those new Chinese frames that are on the market but the list of names I reel out would be way shitter.
