  1. Booster all sorted
  2. Pretty much finished got a booster coming for the rear brake and still need to bed in the front brake but other than that it's pretty good fun so far!
  3. Getting there. Need a new headset as the one in my inspired is practically welded itself in but it's all I need now to get it finished
  4. I just think its a good idea having a dual pull system so both pads hit at the same time rather than having a fixed side so you end up flexing the rotor. BB7s are great I must say but I suppose it could be a bit of trial and error. The trps come with organic pads so I should get a reasonable braking force (hopefully...)
  5. I've had a few bikes come through work with them on and they seem to work great. If they can also make a sti levers feel nice they should do the job. They seem to have better pad adjustment than the BB7 so always worth a go. I've got a Box Components v caliper coming through aswell, I've always used xt in the past but heard good things about the box calipers
  6. Few other parts arrived today aswell as handle bars
  7. I was scrolling on Facebook and noticed someone put an ashton frame up for sale and I thought it would be good to get one built up as it was the first bike I started on 7 years ago (Here it is 7 years ago.) I'm hoping to get it built up next week so stay tuned...
  8. Getting back into this trials stuff... Broke my cross over hose aswell first time doing that
  9. Well seems i have issues with buying many bikes but finally something I feel at home with should have just stuck to my old Echo pure but this definitely feels like a solid build. Just gotta get riding more now
  10. I seem to have a hard time getting things right with setups/bikes... I rode 26" for most of the period of riding trials and tried out 20" which my riding seemed to be at its best at that time but stupidly a while ago I sold the 20" because I had been riding 26" longer and decided to keep it as its what i put the most time into. The issue with 26 was i spent loads of time trying to find the perfect geometry when i should have stuck and left the bike as it was which led to me not enjoying it as much. I recently built an Inspired Hex thinking I would get on with it which I do and i have learnt certain things i didnt know i could do and has helped on the MTB side but I guess I prefer the more TGS and pure trials scene more. I have three things on my mind of getting a custom frame from marino, sell the Inspired and get an Echo 26" or sell the Inspired and get a Jitsie 20" which is similar geo to the Breath Yes I had... Not sure what the best option is some of it is swaying towards 20" but im 6ft3" so i'd need a 180mm stem but then another part is saying 26" and go front disc as i always preferred front disc on a stock...
  11. Taken people's advice with Bars n Stem. Just having a quick test and actually enjoying it a bit more.
  12. I've just changed my ratio aswell from 22-18 to 22-17 which it feels better. Always had a lot of power in my legs and never felt the old ratio was quite enough
  13. cheers all I think I'll get them bars and a 90x35 stem and see how that goes
  14. hmm I was thinking that but I didn't know whether to get a stem same length but higher. I don't think there's much height difference in the trialtechs and arcade bars...
  15. Hi all, I'm just looking for a bit of advise before i think of splashing out on stuff but i've got a mk1 hex which is great but i always seem to get myself in these situations with front set ups (Bit new to the street scene). At the moment i'm running a 120mmx17 stem and highrise bars which as i'm 6ft 3 feels okay but when it comes to doing a bit of normal trials moves it feels as if i'm over extending whether thats set up or out of practice i'm not sure but i'm feeling it mostly on gaps and side hops. Not had the best of luck since starting it all due to cracking my ribs a few months back and only just got back on the bike but i was just wondering what people would recommend set up wise if anyone my height has had issues
