  1. How is the bike holding up ? Is feeling a lot stiffer compared to a inspired frame ?
  2. Hi been on the darkside a few years now, i ride 3-4 times a week usually one long session 4h (mainly pure trials)and 2-3 small ones 1,5 hour(street+skatepark).. main problem is HARSH landings (2m drop to flat), hang up on dirtjumps ect...other than that i do some shoulder/leg/back streching 2-3 times a week about 30min per session... i have friends in the 50's still charging...:-) so no reason to stop anytime soon...The magic trick for me seems to be warming up/ light streeching before riding 5-10min.. and loads of Coffee...
  3. i get it...explanation is fine..
  4. Kinda like the Black one, but not too keen on the forks, maybe a set of inspired forks would loke great on there ;-)
  5. Hi john Dont know if i have a problem ;-), just wanted to hear if there where people riding smaller rotors. im 82kg 180mm rotor & running shimano zee 4 piston brake (never slips, but i think 140-160mm could be fine to) -1 getting it out of the way i for when i bail of the bike (etc tailwhips , i tend to land behind the bike and sometime cut my leg on rotor.) -2 less flex = less change of pad rub -3 more ground clerance well gues only option is to try it out.
  6. Hi anybody who rides 140-160mm rear rotor and has enough brake power? Just wondering if a 4 piston brake would be strong enought with smaller rotor. The bennefit would be more ground clerance. And in teory there should be less flex in rotor & less weigt..
  7. Looks kinda cool. Like the internal cable routing, and through axel in the back.
  8. Love you style, and great riding...really enjoyable for me, sad to hear you are not enjoying it anymore...guess each has its time...
  9. Hi marg26 I would suggest a mix, the feeling of doing something properly is second to none so aim for perfect :-). But to get there one need to feel progress... Don't rush it just have fun with and you will improve. I personally have 3-4 moves i practice most(at any given ride) 1-2 i can do (8 out 10 times) one with a ratio of (4/10) and one (1/20). That way if i don't do the hardest/most difficult that day i will still feel good as some of the other stuff felt good.. Hope that helps, one 40+ to another :-) keep it up
  10. Duing a bit of skatepark riding on the inspired...
  11. In my opinion the correct way is to control the fakie by pedal pressure. So you want to release/pedal backwards to gain more speed, and breaking/slowing down again by applying a little more pressure...its a feeling thing hard to explain how much is needed. The lazy way is done by using the rear brake..
  12. ill got for 203mm rotor both sides...and +1 for the hubs
  13. Cool video, was just in santa monica a few days ago..
  14. Circle's it is...back to the parking lot...
  15. Hi wizards im stuck at around 1 - 1,5 backwards crankturns in my fakie manuals..seems to lose all speed and balance there...i try to apply pressure on the drivetrain all there way around, is that how you guys do it or do you pedal faster so there is no braking? Any pointers are appresiated thanks in advance
