  2. I'd really like to see that as well. Especially interested in torsional stiffness of the wheels on huge jumps to brake-induced full stop (Rolling to rear, gap to front).
  3. Respect for doing that 10p sidehop on Harry Main. Also Main doing a 5p cousty sidehop from rear after fifteen minutes on a modern comp bike is probably a new learning speed world record for Trials. Further evidence for a cross-discipline bike skill level, after Sam Pilgrim's inconclusive experiments.
  4. As far as I know, and for pure trials, we have Breeth, Camin, Clean, Monty, Taboo, all 20" bikes, and the 26" Clean K1.
  5. Thank you! Now we'll just have to bug them to mass-produce it (and probably rake up a huge deficit in the process...)
  6. I love the matching forks/frame/wheels thickness and the carbon peek logo. The tensioner does look a bit exposed, but Danny knows his sidehops, so it probably won't matter. @Ali C Do you by any chance know the diameter of the rear axle? It does look a bit small to me to be a 12 mm.
  7. Can someone post a link to World Cup standings? There used to be a table somewhere on the UCI pages. Found it under 2016, but is actually 2017:
  8. It should be +20 on this frame, tell this Halfords guy to measure it and demand refunds if no match.
  9. See first post, I edited it accordingly.
  10. I used the Hex as a test mule with comp parts last autumn. However, the wheelbase and the low BB made it a bit sluggish on the backwheel. That's why this thing in the photos above exists. Also, I wanted to advance on some construction features. The curved Kloud-style down tube is for my individual style preferences only.
  11. Thanks! I'd reckon that I live in this alternative future now. We might also be working on some other kinds of alternative futures...
  12. Thanks! Lots of sweat in there. No build pics were taken, sorry. Video will be done soon.
  13. To avoid this, I made this: 72, 1080, +60, 1,5", many ideas of David Hoffmann in this frame, the usual painfully branded comp trials parts For two decades, there was Hoffmannbikes, selling custom Trials frames in Germany. Considering his nephew David Hoffmann, and the still-existing workshop, it could be done. PM me for interest, I'll forward it.
