    http://www.pinkbike.com/video/5331/


    l don't think it matters what kind of riding you think is the coolest -- the stuff this guy is doing on a bike is sick.

    Very cool

    It's so lame when people start ripping on difference disciplines. Usually they have no idea how truly difficult they really are.

    I have mad respect for those skilled in trials, and the same amount for the gut-busting XC crew. Riding is just plain cool....All riding

    Smooth. A lot of trials riders do a million set-up hops and that kills it for me. Though I probably couldn't do any better...

    Just out of curiosity, what's a more commonly accepted practice? Riding trials with front suspension, or full rigid? I've seen it done both ways. Is is just the rider's preference?

    That was some very impressive riding.

    rigid for more technical, suspension for bigger drops.

    it boils down to rider preference. most run full rigid though, the few that do run front suspension lower it to like 40-60mm and stiffen the hell out of it. you'll never see a uci(competitive trials ie: no seat, high bb, short chainstays, long frame) bike with suspension on it but more old-school bikes and streetier rides run them sometimes.

    Man, that guy can do some massive side hops. I never have gotten those down. The hop onto the swinging gate was very nice.
