  1. True man, I think that’s were I go wrong. I try everything hard that I normally do. Can’t do it and end up getting frustrated and going home. Next time I have a bad day on the bike I’ll ease up
  2. Oh no I’m not depressed or anything! Like I’m fine and can’t wait to ride but some days are just normal riding. Some days I feel like I can do anything and push way further than I have before.. but some days I get on the bike and just feel crap and nothing comes together. Just wondering is there anything people do to get out of it? Or is it best to throw the towel in and come back another day
  3. Ever have them days when you really can’t wait to ride and then you get on the bike and can barely pull any moves/balance.. or anything close to your normal level? How do you fight the feelings of shitness ? Or is it best to just give up
  4. I'm in telford, not too far. 25 so I'm old too ;P
  5. No I haven’t tried volume spacers Davies, that’s a good idea. I’m definitely going to do that ! Thanks man
  6. I was thinking that to be fair monkey. Yet on all the mountain bike forums they reckon if your bottoming out a trail bike like the 5010 a lot it’s going to destroy it and need to go to enduro.. yeah i I guess so Luke, I’m just going to give it a go then when I find some decent jumps.
  7. Moto trials rider- getting into all this bikes recently. Loved doing a bit of jumping on my sc 5010 this week but I’m going to destroy it soon If im not careful only 130mm travel trail bike really.. bottoming out hard coming off jumps. Probably because I’m shit and I don’t know what I’m doing but, my question is would my hex be a good bike to get into dirt jumping more? I mean it looks similar to a Specialized dirt jumper but I know there’s a lot of differences and to be fair I think I might shit myself trying to do jumps with no suspension What do people think? Or should I get rid of the trail bike and get an enduro I know you can do it on any bike but I seriously don’t want to destroy this 5010 it cost too much
  8. Sounds good I will use a velcro strap when I can get hold of one. There is a cable tie on it already right up to the top of the fork. It’s pulling the brake cable really tight out of the steerer tube but it still drags. Andy, the gap from the steerer tube to the tyre on my hex is crazy there’s pretty much no gap. Ive solves the problem for now by dropping the pressure in the tyre to 37.5 psi and it doesn’t catch the cable anymore. As ive just come from a mod it feels better with softer tyres anyway. I started with 45 and it felt like a brick my arms are absolutely destroyed from riding the hex this weekend thanks all
  9. Hi all, got it a new hex with the front brake routed through the steerer tube but the space between the bottom of the tube and tyre is tight and the brake cable is hitting the tyre and causing it too drag. Go easy im a bike mechanic rookie, so what options do I have to cure this? Cut the tread? josh
  10. Okay cool I’ll have a scout around when the time comes, I’ll probably just stick some race kings on though.. If it works it works Thanks Ali, the information is definitly apreaciated !!
  11. Awesome, thanks for that Ali! I’ve ordered one already! It’s a no brainier really as I’ll ride natural a fair bit as well. Looks like your progressing on the hex then, sounds good dude. I think it comes with holly rollers, what would be your first choice tyres to swap too? I guess that’s the first thing I should swap out
  12. Thinking about ordering a hex as I want to get into street trials more. Coming from a mod bike I know it’s going to feel huge but I ride a lot of mtb too so hopefully it will feel fairly natural. I also ride moto trials mainly so any skills transfer could be easier.. I know Ali C is loving his hex as I’ve seen in his vlogs. What does everyone else think hex or four play ? The new new hex does look pretty sweet !!
  13. Dude, good work on the beam. I need to get some scraps from somewhere and start building stuff like that. Looking good in the vid
  14. I’ve got a jitsievarial 1010 the 20 inch wheel one and I can’t fault it especially for the price. I do moto trials and mountain biking as well so yes 20 inch felt like shit when I first got on it.. mad crazy twitchy and kind of awkward but now I love it and I can back hop on my 27.5 inch full sus bike now thanks to the skills transfer
  15. Sounds good! I don’t think the dog will be happy no haha! that radical bikes place looks prettt sweet, shame there isn’t anywhere like that in the West Midlands
