JamesB Vlog

20 posts in this topic

You know, I watch lots of vlogs online, and I've finally gotten to the point where I don't feel like a complete dork trying a few out. They won't all be trials, and I don't have an upload schedule like most vloggers, but the trialsy ones I make will be posted here...unless I get trolled haha!

On to the first trials vlog. I built up a trials bike modelled after Ryan Leech's Manifesto/Moment builds from the early 2000s. That was one of my favourite eras. This is my first trials ride in 6 months, so I'm a bit rusty.

Haha glad it was entertaining. The brakes were new so they were still bedding in. They are much quieter now.

Heck yes... you are one person I would like to see more video of, awesome - manifesto is the only way ! 

 

Eagerly awaiting bike check... there was just a thread on here asking about various DJ frames and how they would perform.

 

Are you still working for a Canadian cirque type company?

Yep I'm joining the circus from June until the end of October possibly. I'll be using this bike. 

Here is the bike check:

I am starting to get comfy on it. I've only crashed once so I'm not trying too hard yet, but here is the next vlog with quite a few lines in it. I felt like I was lacking a theme with this one, so it's just riding really.

As the title says, stupidly small sketchy set-ups in this one. This is how I usually ride when there is no camera around. Maybe half street and half street-trials. Safety glasses were for the may flies that like to dive-bomb eye balls, but they were also fitting for where I was riding.

Liked the quickcrete 360tyre tap and the rock line at the end.

Keep them coming, bike looks so good. I had a planet x jack flash leopard print, learned to manual for days on that...miss those summers in colorado. 30mm stem in a land of 165mm stickys...

There are some lines I'm stoked on in this one. The weird tree exploration line is one I've ridden by every day on the way to work, and never noticed it. Some lines are repeats from old vids, but I hope it is interesting to get a closer view of them.

So... I joined the circus.

There are pros and cons to this gig. I ride for a living and hang with crazy interesting circus artists! On the other side, I have little free time or energy to ride outside of the shows (19 per week).

This video was filmed during a warm up session on a rehearsal day. Now we are into the busy schedule of shows. I will get some clips of the show for a later video. My act is done with a BMX rider as well, so there is a box-jump...fun!

Looking forward to seeing the circus stuff. I may be in Richmond in a month with work, if the stars align I will try and get to a show.

Here are some behind the scenes shots from a day full of shows. Be prepared for weird make-up, aliens, and heavy costumes...
