  1. Bloodstock currently in my stable.... 1st time I've taken both bikes out at the same time. The kloud now has Crewkerz carbon forks, Crewkerz 145mm stem and Clean bars since the photo.
  2. Definitely been practicing!! A bit difference in your gaps and side hops from last year
  3. Dude seriously needs a helmet.
  4. Smooth riding dude.
  5. Would like to know how well these are holding up for people? As many others have probably thought, they seem scary light but obviously Hashtagg are confident to justify asking the pricetag. Are they taking a battering or designed as comp rider one season accesories?
  6. Warrantied or not, the price of a new bar is less significant than the pain of broken wrist/collar bone etc and the price of time off work to heal just for a 10% saving in carbon. The weave / manufacturing etc maybe be believed to have advanced to justify the weight /material loss, but totally not worth injuring customers. The try all bar has a long history of lasting surely they can learn from that construction.
  7. Thanks for replies. how about the hashtagg carbon handlebar? Released about the same time and 10% lighter than the previous try-all Karbon bar but with more aggressive bends and height which to me must equal a longer length of tube for less weight!!!!!
  8. Im a big fan of Trialtech components for their build quality and ingenuity. Anyone know if they have any plans to or prototyping of a carbon fork? Im pretty sure I'd be buying if they have one.
  9. please say it isn't true
  10. Fair enough. The buying power of the pound when re-stocking sure has fallen. Keep up the good work and great service and look forward to the new site soon.
  11. they sure did. Pretty sure its been going for as long as Ive been riding, the last five years. Come on San'tart, dust off your suit. I'll sit on your knee if you give me some discount
  12. Bugger! Nothing on facebook either....I've been squirreling cash away in anticipation of some seasonal bargains. 1st time in a number of years they haven't done this .
  13. Doesn't the carbon actually hold the aluminium drop out in? Although that drop out piece will be bonded into a section of the fork leg, not just the tip, I'm not sure if cutting into it and the carbon skin surrounding it would be detrimental to the strength. I've never seen a crewkerz carbon fork, only online, so others might know better than me Just trying to opinions on this as I really wanna buy this fork
  14. Thanks Adam. Don't really want to buy a new front Hub and rebuild the wheel , though the crewkerz fork is indeed a thing of beauty. What are hub options for this fork? Only crewkerz, hope , king or can others be modified? I've seen crewkerz aluminium forks for sale on here modified for normal hubs, though don't know in detail what was done as the drop out hole is already oversize. I doubt anyone would want to cut into the drop-out of a sexy new carbon blade but just looking at options.
  15. Good work, screw the haters, you are more advanced riders than me, ive sturggled with gap's to front for a longtime and stilll havent got the technique right.
  16. ^^^^^^Exactly what bikeperson45 says^^^^^^^. Just unreal but at the same time leaves me feeling like I just bought my 1st trials bike this morning and dont know anything
  17. Tube profile all round is good, using the same stiffened rear triangle from the Raijin. Top and down tubes looks cool and have had thought put into them. Here we go again with ANOTHER flaming from the English speaking countries about the name, just like Inpulse and the new Crewkerz Jealousy. The French must just throw their hands in the air and say F**k it , it doesn't matter what we call it they wont like it. I kind of like the name. Looks like they've stepped up the standard of their graphics over the HashTagg decals painted on the Raijin, which are horrible. I like it and I'd buy it.
  18. ***edit
  19. Jesus, get over it. A lot of bikes Ive seen Uk riders using are a good 2-4 years old anyway, battered to F**k in a number of cases and made up of numerous 2nd hand parts. This Guy is pushing innovation in a sport with a limited customer base, not only because of the size of the sport but customers not having money. His ideas are proving to really work and is making very strong product in an a market where (often on this forum) people are bitching about products being not strong enough for 2-3 yrs of battering but want them super light too. Trials parts are not that expensive compaired with other forms of bicycle parts and look at some of the names on Dwonhill/XC bikes and their manufacturers name. Theres been quite a few weird names in the sport throughout history. I think a number of Deng and Echo frames haven't had great names too. Its a great product which will get scratched up too so who cares about a few inch's of lettering on it. Strip it raw if as is popular in UK ifi t bothers you that much. Or give it a French name like Le Croisant or Joe Le Taxi and see how that goes down.
  20. I would have thought excessive heat transfer could damage the bearing in the hub too as the flame doesnt just touch the sprocket. I use a 5" length of brass and work my way round the sprocket bashing it in the loosening direction a few times, then wrap it in a length of old chain in the vice. Borrow a mate and turn the wheel hard, it'll come off. Worked lots of ti mes and never damaged a sprocket as the brass is softer than the steel teeth. It sounds like yours was fitted without grease on the threads and some kind of alloying has happened. Had this with pedal threads before and the crank material ripped out within the threads when i tried to unscrew the pedal.
  21. Ive lived in both NZ and Aus and have flown my trials bike back and forth to UK numerous times. With Emirates and Etihad its just included in your 30kg checked baggage allowance , as it is with most airlines. Though most dont give a 30kg allowance. 24kg is more normal. A cardboard bike box is usually 4kg. Ive used these until it pee'd down in Mancs the night i was due to flyback to Aus and the box was soaked btwn train station and airport. I had to find spare cardboard in the airport and reconstruct it as best i could. Now made my own box with wheels from corrogated plastic stuff that looks similar to cardboard construction. Ive never had any damage having flown to asia numerous times too. Wrap the frame in pipe insulation foa m tube from B&Q,ask a bike shop for all the platic bits new bikes are delivered with to stop pertruding hub axles etc sticking out through the box. Theyre free. Id buy new tyres and tubes when u get there. Biketrials direct or Expressive bikes both stock mod tyres and the 4kg youll save u can bring better stuff. Yes Aussie customs are v.anal and will often take tour wheels with tyres away to wash them before you go through. I would forget all about posting it. It'll cost at least £160+ if u can get a deal similar to what tarty can ship to aus for. Probably way more than that. Anything going into Aus valued OVER $1000 INC shipping will incur customs and Gst if its unaccompanied and u might have to prove the value. I know that from buying on ebay over there.
  22. Ph...its a rock. I thought it was a slice of pizza he was hanging onto maybe for sentimental reasons!
  23. Speechless... Best trials video by a long way for a long time! What an awesome way to celebrate and chronicle your trials life in such a dynamic video.
  24. Awesome, awesome, awesome. Never really followed motorbike trials before but that was brilliant. Thanks for sharing.
  25. WTF.
