  1. Have a look at this site:
  2. You're going to have a nice view! Just curious, how deep do you have to dig the foundation in that area? (I can't tell from the pic.) Here (Eastern Canada) have to dig at least 6' down.
  3. All of what Mark said. I started trials just over 2 years ago at age 56. Continuous very small improvement on the trials bike has really helped my mountain bike skills, which was my original goal. Slowwww-speed/stopped riding and body position transfers well to riding MTB on bumpy bedrock. I put a lot more time on the MTB, but enjoy all the micro wins on the trials bike too.
  4. Ignore the peanut gallery G. JD & TB: Maybe give it a rest? This is The Happy Thread.
  5. In my limited experience (Echo 24"), I am not impressed with Echo TR hydraulic disc brakes. If you don't mind the noise, the Jitsie comes with Magura HS33 rim brakes.
  6. You want a moto trials group, this one is pedal trials (bicycle.)
  7. Embrace winter.
  8. In no particular order, Duncan, Danny, Ali, Flipp, Ben. Each with their own style and strengths. They all make great riding videos, so fun to watch.
  9. 100 + 28 = 2^7
  10. Is your tire pressure too low?
  11. Looks like some sort of monitor?
  12. Yes, already confirmed it is 3 mm. But the 3 mm hex tool in my set is a bit too big or poorly 'machined', won't fit. Other 3 mm tools fit fine.
  13. Yes. This set is all metric, and shiny 'silver.' I have an imperial set that is dark.
  14. Nothing wrong with the Echo 3 mm bolt, it's my 3mm hex tool that's a bit off (too big.) :-/
