  1. Dan we have to get out and tan our foreheads one evening/weekend!
  2. I think a section of the forum should be posted for anyone who might want to review a shop or brand. For instance I just ordered a helmet out of pure anger from Tartybikes to replace my Poc as the pads in it are total crap. I'd love to give them a compliment and also say that I'm impressed by the quality of the Jitsie/lazer helmet for the price. Other folk on the forum might want to research Marino (on a thread purely based on reviews) or the new brand Scorpio and so on. So whack it up!! Haha
  3. It's cool how they used world famous Inspired rider Yuki Kishi at the start. Honestly this edit was awesome, I love how these really quirky edits keep coming from rider on these frames. I remember talking to Flipp about making frames on a road trip a few years ago but super glad that dream became a reality. I think @CalopS would be absolutely class on one of these frames. The spots looked sick and the lines on them matched. Few bitch's to fire up Ali. Loved the pedal to rear on the rail.
  4. I haven't seen those bolts for ages. That the correct Pro2 for that frame 100% haha
  5. Time for Marino to use some of these* *and get some small print on the website. Winner winner chicken dinner.
  6. Very nice frame!
  7. I enjoyed yesterday, just messing around on simple things seemed loads of fun. Anyone wanting to know the location of the park I will post it up on the forum but it's not actually finished properly yet. I'll see what the next week or two bring with the council letting us rip into more stuff but anyone wanting to ride it, it's free and open to all.Stephen Burke park, Barrowford, Colne area. (M65).
  8. Raw and more vloggy would be better, it just seems a little over edited and less chilled out. When it's over so quickly it's actually harder to take in how big most of your riding is.
  9. Yeah it's cool seeing these guys who are at a top level in other sports coming over to trials but it's like Akrigg, Danny and Fabio just smashing it on the other bikes. Ali is a great example of an all rounder just on the one bike, park, street, rocks, pump tracks and I bet he could xc his hex quite well. Nice to see you riding the rocks more often again @Mike Beck the last time we saw this properly was in a mod video years ago. Great to see you teaming up with someone to film you. It always takes two. Harry and Skeggs not doing things together has hugely made his channel take a back step in my eyes.
  10. It's no longer 2006. Had a cheeky view again, keep filming!
  11. Really enjoyed this, quirky. One questionable clip cutting the last part of a line out haha
  12. Bloody Vimeo! Welcome YouTube. Go viral now
  13. Bloody Vimeo! Welcome YouTube. Go viral now
  14. Endless dad jokes. Speak to Ross. I phrased him above for what he does for Marino. Last time I got one it took 4 weeks and 2 of those was me getting the cheaper postage option because Yorkshire.
  15. It's put you off ordering from Marino in the next 5 months? That like a punishment sentence? That'll teach him!
  16. It's a shame after all the years that he does still have a delay in communication. Fortunately his work is worth the wait. He must be pretty flat out to still not have the time to get back to people. He's lucky to have people like Ross and other members of his team that are able to keep the cool a little bit. The batches of frames are the best idea they had. Imagine if they weren't designed by a 5' Scotsman, they'd be the rage! Once your frame is finished you have the absolutely shocking postage to wait for but unfortunately that is totally out of Marino's hands.
  17. You can't Vlog from nothing. These riders in the BMX world come from mainstream sponsors, competitions and online edits (that went viral). You can't just be in someone else vlog and all of a sudden think you've made it. No offence Mike. This isn't me enjoying taking the piss either. People on this thread think you're good on that bike, you clearly are. Have a go at making an edit, a serious edit, put in the time you are willing to on this vlog project into an edit that is filmed over a few weeks or months. Make it a banger with absolutely no filler. You are capable of that, we would all support that and get behind you without question with shares and so on. That to me is your starting point, that to me gets people interested in wanting to know more about you. Keep doing what you do on Instagram and build up that following in the meantime. Then if you ignore that (I won't be offended), a calling the shots or game of trials would be a good early vlog.
  18. You forgot to mention when you make it as a Youtube vlogger you're MOT exempt.
  19. By vlog 100 you'll learn when to blink. Stick with it.
  21. Amusing that I bet none of us have subscribed but have come back to check this thread. Maybe he's actually really good at what he does and he's tricking us haha
  22. Fair play, this is actual riding. We shall look forward to this.
  23. I had to go ask him. I'm told he does. Im told the next vlogs his last vlog. SUBSCRIBE TO ALI 4 LAST VLOG!!!!! WOW 100 AWESOME COOL #Glasgowbabe65 #Glasgowpost #Itsaspiceymeatball
  24. DONT LISTEN TO ANYONE MIKE SUBME BECK WHAT THE WORLD WANTS TO SEE IS A CLICK BAIT "POST BOX STUNT" LOADS OF RIDING UP A STREET AND FLASHING AND ONLY A TINY TINY AMOUNT OF POST BOX RIDING. WHEN CRAIG LEE SCOTT SIDE HOPPED THAT POST BOX OVER TEN YEARS AGO WE HAD TO SIT THROUGHOUT A MEGA LONG VIDEO AND HE USED RIDING CLIPS AS FILLER! WTF!!! What you clearly are is good on a bike, what you clearly aren't is interested in making edits people want to see. Where you appear to want to be doesn't happen by asking. Take fully on board what others do in their clogs but not just what Ryan T or Harry Main do. Take some time and view vlogs from other niches not just sport. You seem confident so hopefully you'll come across alright in the vlogs. I cant even remember if Ali still vlogs or not. They peaked and unfortunately all us older folk want to see is edits.
