I was not stoked on most of the footage when filming this. Then I started editing and this came out! I like it, especially the last clip! Can't get that song out of my head. - hopity, hopity, hop...

On a serious note, bar to nose pick might be the first done on MTB? If someone's done it I'd like to know. I'm sure the Front Brake Brethren have done it on bmx.

Hi, loved the video and I’ve not come here to start an argument, but I’m confused by the suggestion that the bar spin to nose pick might be the first done on a mountain bike.

Perhaps the first one done on a stock trials bike, but even that seems like a reach.

Loved the riding.

Where I'm from the bmx riders all call my bike an MTB. Dj and mtb kinda get lumped together.

I've seen bar foot jam combos before, which is why I was surprised to never see it done with a brake. It was pretty easy in the end. It's probably been done by a slope guy messing around with brakes or a bmx guy playing on a dj bike. I asked here because some of you have been around a long time.

How dare you.

I’d have thought the likes of Sam Pilgrim have beaten you to the punch on this one.

Apparently I asked a question I should not have asked. I should have chosen to remain ignorant. Now to dig myself into a deeper hole... is there a video of Sam or maybe Martin Soderstrom doing top tier front brake tricks? The best inspiration I've found is the Front Brake Brethren. This video gets me stoked.

You ask any question you like, this is a safe place.

I loved your video, but just had a nagging feeling I’d seen a big boy bike do a bar to nosepick before. Perhaps I’m wrong, and yeah, that video is awesome.

Thank you for your videos ! 

 

Love what you are riding. I had a planet x jack flash in the early 2000s, I loved that frame. Manuals for days... Any idea what a similar frame is in todays world? I have woods I need to build trails in... Come visit north carolina and ride !

Different setup up but there are enough bar to hangfives in here to keep one busy. The fakie, 360, and skinny version are pretty interesting:

Thank you, the legendary AndyT! I'd say the flash was far ahead of its time. That's why it did so well! If you want a bike for jumping, most modern dirt jumpers would do great. If you want gears and the ability to ride trails, I'd go with something from Chromag personally. Jeff Lenosky is on Reeb I think. I have no experience with them but they look nice too. Not sure about the rear end on those for trials braking though. But yeah, my dream hardtail trail bike would be a chromag.
