  1. Just gonna leave this here
  2. really shitty to hear about the injury! the street bike must have known you were hanging it up the build looks good!
  3. 05/06 zoo python that’s been sprayed is my guess
  4. loved the video! hope we get to ride again soon im curious as to what the new bike is as i saw your rim brake post the other day
  5. If you're looking for an arcade-like geo with a slightly shorter reach, I've been thinking of selling my ti dean lately
  6. Glad to see you're back at it!! Some seriously mint clips in this one
  7. Would be cool if someone made these out of steel, but frames really need to start just doing post mount considering you can’t really get ISO calipers anymore
  8. I'm planning to build up an old dual disc ozonys curve 24 soon. I have a 26" crewkerz that I love, but I've been wanting to try out a smaller more playful pure trials bike that I can bunnyhop and throw around a bit more easily. I would have jumped on one of the 2019 GU frames, but I can't get over how a 1075 wheelbase just seems sort of wrong for this wheel size. The Jitsie hybrid 24" looks interesting, but I want a higher bb, and there's just so many things that I really wish they would update about their designs (standard headtube, ISIS bb, 116mm dropouts, 160mm disc mounts? LOL). For rear tires, the Vee Flow Snap 24" seems interesting to me (it comes in a super low duro too):
  9. Awesome to see a rider taking the plunge to try one out! Let us know how it goes. Edit: Do you have any intention of opening it and taking out the grease? It looks like I9 uses grease now instead of oil like they used to on the Torch hubs. A friend of mine has an I9 Torch Classic and his skipped every now and then until he cleaned it out. "The pawl mechanism of our Hydra, Torch Road, and 101 hubs has a distinctive sound. It has the sound of nothing more than the highest-quality sprung pawl system. Most riders report that the noise is inaudible over the wind at higher speeds. It is loud enough to be heard, yet not so loud as to detract from the experience you are trying to enjoy. Our stock FH lubricant is Dumond Tech Pro-X Freehub Grease. For riders who enjoy a louder hub experience, simply wipe down your drive ring, apply Dumond Tech FH oil and you will notice an audible difference."
  10. Coust and ADMs are nicer in my opinion. Not to mention the fact that the jitsies don’t come glued in the backing for some reason?
  11. Hex sounds like a good choice. is from Washington, and is in Oregon
  12. I'm super happy that this video has been so well received! I think the style that I edited it comes from that fact that growing up all I did was watch COTrials, FTC, Nopogo videos and the like As others have said, Jack's riding is just insane and to see it all in person is a totally different thing! I'm hoping it gets people excited and out on their bikes just as those above mentioned videos did for me when I was younger
  13. Watching this has just put such a HUUUGE smile on my face!! I have such good memories of being out riding with you and having a blast. I know how frustrated and defeated you must feel since you weren't able to do the 100 clip video that you were planning, but I still think this is a little gem that you should be proud of When we get old as f**k and aren't able to ride trials bikes anymore, I'm sure you'll look back on this video and have fond memories too of all the fun times (and laughs! as evidenced by the video ) that happened while filming this, and that's far more important than it being that "one time you didn't make that 100 clip video". p.s. The ambient music + the nothing but the hub sound = magic!
  14. You should get in touch with Rick Koekoek
  15. As I know it, there are still a few riders that are going to be going there on the weekend (including me). Should be a good time!
