  1. You're riding always has so much tech I can watch a video a few times and keep on noticing little things. Bad foot sidehop at 1:34?
  2. You've got an awesome style! Makes me want to get out and ride.
  3. Anyone tried the new veetire synthesis? I'm too puncture prone for the other veetire's, but this one seems to have a sidewall insert?
  4. Got two of these. Still going strong! Still wouldn't change a thing
  5. Yeah, those are the ones. Even here in the states it took some serious searching to find one. Depending on where you order it from might be worth paying for shipping from somewhere else. Outside of 2-3 countries including UK most trials riders are ordering most - all their parts international.
  6. Maxxis was making a proper rear 24" tire recently. Tacky compound, thick sidewalls, and pinch protection. I forget what is was off hand, but I bought one new in early 2017. Worked great. It was aimed at the Jr downhill market
  7. Seriously Jealous of that Ashton! Yeah, when I rode 24" pure awhile back it seemed great for static moves like gaps and sidehops. However I could never really figure out pedal ups, it seemed like neither 20" or 26" technique quite worked super well on it. Obviously some riders like Joe Maher didn't have the same problem.
  8. Good to hear, you always rocked 24"!!! You sold the echo?! Are you riding 26" now? Yeah, part of what prompted me to start the thread was checking out Tartybikes and seeing only the Gu and the Jitsie. At least here in the states it seems 24" pure was most popular with beginners, to whom the "best of both" worlds idea was very inviting. I do feel like the Jitsie hybrid has a place, how many old school riders complain about the new bikes being too "xyz", but still can't get on with a completely street bike? It'll be interesting to see how it does.
  9. It seems like this was a phase that has died. Anybody still rocking 24" pure?
  10. I thoroughly enjoyed that.
  11. My first riding clip on Instagram since my ankle surgery.
  12. They wander back and forth between what I think would be normal for pure trials bars, and halfway to Street.
  13. I use arcade bars for pure trials. Never could get used to the weird wrist angle on the comp bars. I'm sure someone else has more to say about it.
  14. First off, I understand most of the current forks are meant to have a bit of flex in them. When I sidehop I pin my front wheel first and then push in the rear. After landing I am typically looking right behind my front wheel. When I pick up my wheels to let them settle a bit my front wheel shoots forward fairly significantly from all the fork flex, maybe an inch or a bit more? (verified as a LOT by my buddy lance I rode with yesterday). Is this just normal these days? I'm riding an 2018 echo urban. 1 1/8" steerer. Sadly when I got my Marino made I didn't get a tapered fork. I am 100kg, so maybe I should replace my fork anyway.
  15. I bought one of Ryan Leech's old red and white manifesto's off pinkbike awhile back. It was short a couple parts, so wasn't exact, but was pretty cool. Shortly thereafter sold it. So it's the bike I've always had feelings for and the one that got away. One of the only bikes I really regret selling.
