    While I like the amazing things that guys like MacAskill and Akrigg do, this stuff looks difficult but doable if you just put in the work to ride technical terrain. That, and this German forest looks a lot like the Escarpment in Southern Ontario whe I ride :-)

    Sweet! Thanks for the videos's,I've been building and riding AMT trails for a couple of years now and really enjoy this style of riding.where I ride in Pa we have some awesome rock and bolder sections where I put in some interesting and challenging lines,I tend to be the lone dog for this style in my area and have been encouraging others to give it a shot.the hanging it out and riding on the edge is a constant rush!

    This is EXACTLY the style of riding I really want to get into.

    EDIT: <s>Can anybody tell what brand of bikes they are on? And, what would be some American equivalents? The only logo I can recognize are RockShox.</s>

    I see they are at least using Nikolai AM frames, which look really sweet and expensive!

    Great vids. I was wondering how they had the clearance at the BB for some of those moves. The answer: Hammerschmidt. Oh, and skills for days.

    I wonder if they run their rear shock at a higher pressure so it doesn't soak up as much of their movements? Looks like high rebound rates on the front fork too? Hard to say just by watching it. Looks like a lot of fun though.

    Practicing these moves on the trails generally leads to bleeding. Anybody got a way to do it maybe in the back yard where the grass has some give? I guess just building some boxes/platforms might work.

    I'd love to see the outtakes from those videos.

    I like these videos & Akrigg mainly because of the bikes rather than a rigid trials bike. Either way, the riding is jaw-dropping.

    i was wondering the same thing, it seems it would help to have both the front and back set up on the stiff side for better control.

    Awesome. The style stems from moto trails like this, the Euros have been at it for a long time..

    Those moto vids are "awesome" but pale in comparison to those riders powering their own!!

    Wonder what's the chain guide in vid 3, 00:48?! Looks interesting! (since I just discovered that my LG1+ isn't the best for the muddiest times...)

    Really nice vids! Would like to see more of that on vids! The terrain around here would give options for that type of riding, skills not..

    I've been training for trials for about 6 months now. Finally getting some balance on my rear wheel. This is the hardest style of any sport I've tried, but it's very rewarding when it clicks.

    Here is a sight dedicated to trials training.

    Awesome style of riding. I ride moto trials and have "attempted" to ride like this for as long as I can remember.

    Those vids have inspired me to go more aggressive and try more technical stuff on my trails and even on my daily commute through town.

    Daily practice will get you better then no practice at all. And it's fun

    Great vids, thanks for the links. Flats with 5.10 shoes and they hardly ever sit

    2 of the 3 vids they are also using a front Hammerschmidt on both bikes. I would love to try one out.
