    What you could be doing when the trails are wet

    I made a little trials video if anyone is interested in checking it out. I wanted to make a video before replacing my bike but the inversion came and everything got cold and icy. So this is what I ended up with.

    Well worth the watch - enjoyed it. My fav move was early in the vid, the back spinning of your cranks after doing a hop. The crash scene is mandatory could of put in a couple more.

    So you run only a back brake? Is there any nose wheelie moves in your repertoire?

    Fun

    Zebdi - Thanks for sharing, I thought that was pretty cool. I dig your jungle setup and thought the quality of the video was really good.

    That was my only good crash during filming. The rest weren't that entertaining. I'll work on getting more for my next vid

    No; I have an Avid disc up front. The rear is a v-brake on a ground rim.

    I can nose wheelie ok on that bike but not great. I'm starting to add more front wheel moves but I cracked my fork.

    My next video will be alot more front wheel moves and a lot bigger moves (barring no icy conditions)

    I'm glad you enjoyed it.

    That's a bad word. Almost as bad as training. I just ride for fun a few hours a week.

    nice work Chris!

    I think the playground at C.M. Elementary was made for trials riding, I've always wanted to ride that barrier over the irrigation ditch too..

    nice ending sequence with you riding by the house the Christmas puked on...

    Wow! Nice job. On the riding, and the video production.

    May your trails be narrow, crooked, lonesome and dangerous, leading to the most outrageous adventures. Paladin

    I'm surprised that no one else said that. For some reason, I expected more people to comment on the christmas lights, but I certainly didn't expect anyone to use the name we gave it. I forgot that you might know that. I haven't seen you in years.


    Thanks everyone for your comments. I'll post another one in a few more months after I get used to riding my new bike and can get some footage in places that most of you in Boise will recognize.

    I for one can't wait. The vid you posted is already one of the best Boise biking grfx I've seen. You almost made me want to think about getting into the trials thing. Sure beats the heck outa whining about muddy trails and marginal snow.
    Nobody cares what kind of bike you ride.
