  1. Hi marg26, I know it is a bit of a weird timing (sorry for that), It has been out literally today as I just put it up online. It was a very long project to wrap up and I really wanted to get it ready by the end of September, but ended up struggling until mid-November doing some last photo shoots for the cover, stitching up videos and doing paper work until it could finally go to the printers, then revisions, further delays pretty much to December until I could get my own copies and share the result. Since I opted for a different printing house, I had no idea about what their actual delays would be so I didn't want to make any anticipated announcement before I actually got the books in hand. Early November, I still wasn't 100% sure I would get them ready before Christmas, but now I don't want to hold them to next year either. Sorry again for this weird timing, not very commercial.
  2. Bump with an updated edition. Yep, after about three years of riding street trials to figure out what all the cool moves were about, and revamping the website with extra street sections, it was time I'd put up together a revised edition of my book. Hence with the extra street chapters, the book has grown up from 240 pages to 288 pages in a A5 format (210x148mm portrait). A neat feature I am quite pleased about, I also managed to integrate QR codes onto the how-to pages for a direct access to relevant slow-motion videos (via any smartphone QR scanner app) Check it out on www.wildgrip-publishing.com .
  3. The song was a must for me, I listened to La Femme the whole summer, and this particular one was fitting as the sun was constantly shining. I wished I had had more time for more lines, but was often short on camera battery heating up rather fast and sometimes on a tight schedule. Thanks for your comments, yes, I've been around for a while, but I enjoy riding bikes more than anything else, so any time on wheels is pure bliss.
  4. Hey, long time no posting videos... But I got the chance to take my 24" Inspired Console to California this summer, and as a takeaway, I wrapped up a small street video riding a few lines from the Stanford campus, mostly casual riding, manuals and co., and plenty of sun of course! Check out the Youtube link Cheers,
  5. Riding Stanford, warm and sunny, bump boost at an angle to make more distance from the first step.
  6. Found these two bits of walls last WE, both looked like they were purposely designed to be ridden. Had to give it a go.
  7. Found a decent skate park not too far from home, with a half pipe. Compulsive tabletop session, brought back some good old memories and back in 1994, my first go at a ramp on a steel mountain bike
  8. Tyre tap session on a goal post, this morning... to make the most of today's sweet sunshine.
  9. Just time... (a lot of my previous free time has evaporated with family stuff), hence any personal project I get into spreads over a longer time period, but I eventually get there. Wall rides updated
  10. Hi Davies, thanks for your comments... for now I focus on pages and step-by-step photos... then I'll edit slow-mo videos for the new street pages too, but not sure about the added text yet as all the info is on the pages... Will depend on my time budget
  11. Just added a Decade... preparing the G-turn
  12. That's an idea, at last some video tutorials that go beyond just filming the move, well impressed with the explanation details too.
  13. Just added a street menu on TrashZen, and my first page is online... This one is mostly looking at the differences between street and pure comp geometries and how those are felt in riding... I am also preparing some street-specific tutorials too so watch out as those build up on the site, step-by-step as usual. Also working on a more readable layout... something like the screen shot below, but it's not ready yet for full roll-out... Any feedback welcome. Cheers
  14. Bunny hop practice, with a bump
  15. My glorious Console in the last sunny hours of the day.
