  1. Yep. You are spoilt for choice down the docks. Lots of places to ride in a nice area. I miss it!
  2. Hi all, im in the process of moving to Witney... while I'm spoilt for choice of riding spots in Liverpool, is there anywhere in Witney and any local riders?
  3. My favourite bike right there. You beat me to it when it was for sale.
  4. I love my austin... but still hanker for an alias. Feel free to drop me a pm if you are interested. I still have the longer stem etc. There are also a few Austin's on eBay at the moment. The alias is the only bike I'd have over my rockman. I love it.
  5. As above I think it's all been covered... grips and brake lever angles.
  6. I didn't update the thread... but stem seems to be working ok. I've not tired upto front yet (because I'm no good at them), but the bike feels good. Probably need a shorter frame... but I can wait. Looks a little better too
  7. Sounds like you want to set your bike up like mine...? A shorter stem and high rise on mine made the world of difference. Bunny hops are a little better now, and It feels better suited for me and what I want. I still need a shorter frame... I am saving for an alias.
  8. Super cramped sounds perfect for me
  9. I have a nice Austin V2 with a 150mm 30 degree stem. I feel quite stretched out on the bike despite putting on some high rise bars with a slight roll back. I had a look on Tarty and Jitsie do a 120mm 35 degree stem that should bring the handle bars back ~3cm. My thinking is that the shorter stem will allow me to roll the bars forward a little resulting in a 1-2cm less reach while having sensible looking bars. Is a 120mm stem on a mod too short? I am 5 2" ish if that helps - I appreciate it will make it a little more difficult to get the rear up. [/URL]
  10. I ride a mod... but I don't need any bits. Hopefully you can pop something in the free cycle thread.
  11. Bit the bullet and bought it. I'll see how I get on and see if I prefer a mod to a street bike... one will likely be for sale in the near future. I'm quite happy with the purchase, just need to weigh it now.
  12. Hi All, Rockman Austins... I have come across one for a reasonable price. In the scheme of all things trialsy, is the geo good for smaller riders?? i believe the WB is 1050 on this version (I thought it would be 1010mm but the seller says 1050). I'm not getting on with my 24" and find I am happier on the rear wheel with 'pure trials' moves rather than street trials and all things fancy i thought I could try a Rockman and see how I get on. I know the Rockman will be a lot lighter than my 24" bike... which is helpful. Many thanks
  13. All more than welcome to join in the fun! It will be great in the summer with all the bars and riding spots.
  14. It's beautiful down there and so many trials related objects to play on for all abilities. It was freezing and very windy this morning... but I had a very very enjoyable ride.
