  1. Maybe Matt is too busy eating toast or something to post but here’s this
  2. Full disclaimer on below: my opinion doesn’t matter, he’s far better than I am etc. I was never a Fabio fan. I always thought his riding was kind of... plastic. It never interested me. Even though he would do the same things as say Ali for example, I would always prefer to watch Ali. And I still stand by that. however, that video was fantastic. There is a hell of a lot of work put into it, and Fabio has some serious balls for some of those lines. Even just the fillers were proper hucks. There’s the obvious corporate side of things which are a little annoying but the video itself overall was great. Much more riding focused than I was expecting. Big props to him.
  3. I didn’t realise quite how much of a “paint me like one of your French girls” pose I was sitting in. Also josh hair flip in time with music. The rest speaks for itself. That hook into the rolldown on that white bench thingy was tasty.
  4. Those sidehop tucks are awesome, full origami spec.
  5. I’ve seen him do it enough times, but that last hook to front was a genuine “what the f**k” moment for me.
  6. I want dual king hubs to annoy literally everyone.
  7. Tom’s got the skills.
  8. F1

    qualifying were a reet mess
  9. trialtech one (i presume is the carthy one) stays dead grippy even after a lot of use and is solid. as someone who rides foam grips, it properly shredded my hands, though. its so grippy it literally hurts. haha. im afraid i havent tried the jitsie one.
  10. Cheers dude! That means a lot!
  11. A little showcase of the natural stunts next to my house. That last one took a bit of doing, hopefully a proper edit soon.
  12. not sure why this wasn't posted yet. since i last saw him before radfest, jack has improved massively. some nice lines in this!
  13. as above. trials is really difficult. also, feel free to discard this as its very much personal opinion, but quantifying the riding when you're learning i think is a mistake. i dont know enough about how you ride, but when i was a beginner, it was never "2-3 times a week" "1-2 hours", it was intense frustration, not going inside until id progressed somehow, for however long, because it was fun. still is, although im still shite in comparison to some. you gotta put in the hours to progress early on, get that bike control. its not like going to the gym. it wont run like clockwork- just because youve ridden a certain amount doesnt mean youll be any better. (to an extent- more time on the bike is always a plus.) its a skill that takes a lot of effort, fails and crashing to progress. sorry if that seemed rude, i didnt mean bad by it. its good to see people getting into it regardless, keep at it! put some clips up in here so we can see and advise.
  14. see you there!
  15. i can put you in touch with some chaps in the oxford area if you like...
  16. id go for it then, theyre a really good camera
  17. I can show you around the midlands, there’s some great spots, the famous wolvo wedges, Leicester blocks, etc- there’s also an app where you can add spots to a UK map with photos/ locations etc, it’s worth looking at, I believe it’s called faction? On Facebook
  18. i did, they said nah, ring a dealer and get a hubshell, so i rang Stan and he rang hope and they said they dont sell hubshells on their own. was a bit miffed obviously, but i understand why they didnt just replace it- i didnt buy it direct from them. but the whole hubshellthing was bizzare. decided to bodge an old wheel until i can afford another one cheers dude. when we riding??
  19. I know, it loses points because I stripped the ratchet out of my purple pro4 and had to resort to a spare wheel, but this bike is by far the most fun I’ve had riding! Helped along by the fact the bike is pretty darn tough (minus the cheese rear wheel which dents when you look at it) and it’s brought with it many a good time so far, can’t wait to get better on it. Not the lightest, no carbon, front disc and beefy front rim means after swapping my tubes for something a bit beefier it’s about 10kg or so. But I can go the biggest I ever have on it so who cares, feels great
  20. 2 from ye olde Hasselblad! Kodak portra 400 film
  21. The early a7s are great, but the battery life really isnt from what I’ve found. Can’t say anything about the newer ones. Quality is ace though.
  22. What addresses did the wheels have? Certainly didn’t the share the same postcode.
  23. i think thats the first ozonys ive seen with the waw stem on it, it threw me for a second. bike looks cool. like futuristic evil cool.
  24. Swap a Megan engine into it
  25. Not hard to fix the freehub on a pointless mini chain setup just so I can make noise. wonder of triton would ever make a wheelchair frame
