  1. I have a flow plus with arcade riser bars everything else is stock and it's a great bike to start out on . I will probably change the brakes later down the line but the stock bb5 ( I think ) are good to start on and will only upgrade when I start doing bigger stuff but that's a long way away. I'm 6ft 2 and don't feel cramped up but anything smaller would be a real push . In short I highly recommend the flow plus and tarty bikes they were amazingly helpful .
  2. I have a flow plus , not used it as much as I would like but it's a really good bike to start with and build up over time , I think the frame forks are like older fourplays ( not sure ) . But great little bike
  3. I'm also in the beginner stages at 41 and find it hard to ride with others about , I suffer with anxiety and depression anyway and people looking on will not help , I'm looking for places to ride/ practice with nobody about as I don't have room at home for any except trackstands.
  4. I'm 6 2 and have a flow plus with arcade rider bars on and it's ok, you might want a longer stem being abit taller . It's a great bike , I still have the cable disc brakes on and find it all good as being a sort of beginner at 41 . If you have any queries email tarty bikes they were amazingly helpful when I was buying my flow plus. Hope that helps
  5. I think the biggest 360s I've seen down stairs , and some very cool curved rails. Dan Lacey is a bad man !!!
  6. I'm in aldershot and a noob only been on the bike twice since I got it a year and a half ago due to illness and injuries . Might try and go to quiet spot in farnham on Friday evening if I'm well enough.
  7. Got docs next week , haven't ridden at all since it got bad as grip got weak . Will give that weight thingy a try
  8. Great video , will be watching again and again
  9. I have been suffering with and similar thing ( now 40 ) , with pain in forearm , elbow , wrists and palm of my hand near little finger on left hand and wrist, forearm and elbow on right . I have had since beginning of October. Its taking ages to heal up but slowly getting better still going to the docs soon though.
  10. Love this guy's riding
  11. I have a flow plus and love it even though not used it much due to illness . The bb5s on it are better feeling than the xt if have on my mtb , so I would just go for the upgrade when buying . It took me ages to pick the bike after asking loads of questions to tarty bikes but they were great answering everything so a noob would understand .
  12. Not sure if these have been posted before but I had to share
  13. I got my flow plus last year but couldn't ride due to health reasons , now on the mend but find everything harder than I remember as I could do a fair amount of stuff on my old mtb when I was younger ( now nearly 40 ). One problem is finding somewhere quiet to ride as self-conscious about how much I suck , the other not having anyone to ride with / to help with tips etc.
  14. Nothing wrong with the avids just got them on a new bike ( still bedding in though ) it was just I have the shimano ones sitting there and wondered if they were any good for trials
  15. I have avid bb5 cable disc brakes currently fitted to my flow plus and have a set of shimano m615 brakes sat doing nothing as took them off my full sus when I upgraded to xt , was wondering if the m615s would be better than the cable avids ( even though the avids seem to have a lot more of adjustment ) .
