  1. Yes,would be nice,if you is ok with that.
  2. Super,any chance to make some in-depth video how to do front,back pivot and rocking,i mean how to move hips,counterbalance and etc.? Would be nice,i know maybe is beaten to death,but good tutorial will help to many like me. Thank you.
  3. What others issues?I was going to buy Hope Pro 4 SS,but came across this thread and fact that no one have stock,leads me thinking ,that maybe last batches are issued somehow.Who knows?
  4. I heard good stuffs about Hope,but i have read some threads here saying that there are issues on Hope Pro 4 SS and fact that most of the on online shops have no stock,leads me to idea that maybe last batches are not ok,so i would rather wait a few months. Would anyone compared stiffness,engagement differences,etc. of Hope pro 4 vs Hope pro 4 SS/Trails? What is better in my case 10x135 bolt in or 12x135 axle(i am going to use redicer axke 12 to 10 mm Reverce Components)? Thank you.
  5. What about Hope pro 4 or Pro 2 is better choice?
  6. Your manual clip was very helpful for me,especially the looping out section.This one is good one,also.Would you consider to do more?
  7. Hi,there.Would you recommend some 10x135 rear hub/s which i could run six cogs cassette on(my frame is old one)?I currently have some cheap Formula on rear,but it is engagement is very bad and i have to ratcheted the cranks every time when i do wheelie and trackstand,very annoying.It is ok for beginner like me,but i need better one. Thank you in advance.
  8. RIP.He personally sent me a copy of his book signed himself,a was so happy and still i am.His site and books are real treasures for beginners like me.Sad.
  9. Thank you,everyone.I do practice,but the funny thing is,that i used to do it on my hardtail and now applied to my fully rigid and full-sus one,is way difficult. I did watch a Youtube clip recently and guy there said,that back brake (even applied a bit) just makes bike out of it is balance point,so you should do ti trough hips movements and without using back brake...only if you looping out.
  10. Yes it is hard.On my previous bike Genesis DJ,the chainstay was 425 mm,but with time i was able to do 3-4 meters and actually now riding this Giant,it is seems even more difficult.Maybe because i am not used to rear v brake,maybe because i am old and rusty . Anyway,i still love challenge myself.Thank you all of you.
  11. Hi,there.It is beaten to death,but how do you people perform slow manual,with rear brake or without one,flat on? I know it is mandatory for downhill stuffs and so,but i am a beginner,so i learning it on flat now. Got first trials bike a while (old Giant Trial team ) and it is has 1040 wheelbase,which makes it first short one that i have,but it is way difficult to make manual compared to my other bikes.To me,i feel more natural to try do it slowly and without brake,just use it to prevent looping out.I even change my pedals with plastic ones with small "something like pins" to makes things easier to bail out.Otherwise i ride with 5/10 and Tioga or Nukeproof pedals,they have much grip and i fear for my damaged knee,so i did swapped them out. Have a nice day,dudes.
  12. Thank you,my brake arms are SD5(old”new” stock) and they have none play on them.I will try out your suggestions to change pads and set them parallel to the rim.The rims are smooth ones,if that is matter.Actually when grab the grab rear brake lever fast,the noise is very thin and high for the short time,but when i am dragging is like train coming.Lol. Otherwise the braking power is awesome,i am 90 kilos,i have never ride V brake on rear,but i like it.....except the sound. Would TNN backings with black compound be such as noisier as Jitsie ones smoth rom on? Thank you for your time.
  13. Hi,everyone.I have very noisy rear Jitsie v brake pads,especially when i have to slow down.Initially they have been set parallel to the rim,but LBS mechanic toed them in,so the noise get lower.What is the correct way to be?Parallel or toed?Do they have to bed in like disk ones for example or not? Pads are new,i did ride a few times only.Got booster,too. The bike is new to me and i try to learn to do manual on it,so i have to drag brake,but it drave me crazy like this. I would appreciated any suggestions,even to change pads,if i have to. Cheers.
  14. TrashZen's book is very helpful,at least to me.Very nice build,i wish you success and luck.
  15. That is the final build...for now,at least.
