Trackstands

i love trackstands. i dont get stoned often, but staring at your front wheel and concentrating of the flow - trackstanding began to feel like being stoned after a while.

P.S i also ride fixed, thats good for trackstand flow, no brakes

Trackstands

until my legs cramp, or start to shake like fXXX - usually about 30 - 40 mins (yes i have bothered to trackstand that long, it was a dull evening). :stupid:

not enough to justify a :damn: IMO

$4700 IS a lot of coin, but its worth every penny - count up the number of cold forged pieces and comapre them to a norco/kona/iron horse at that price. THATS what you are getting from specialized - a frame that is a piece of bike engineering, not just a price point speccing job.

Oh, not only is it sweet to look at (she's a beaut) it is a fantastic ride. :agree:

Kona 2006

well that explains what came rocking past me on CBC last week - one of those new Stinky's, dunno who the rider was, but he was shifting - both wheels railing the wooden top berm eh?

UK Downhill Action?

having just come the other way, the short answer is NO. The "best" trails will make stuff like Krinkum Krankum and other "easy" shore trails seem like a wet dream that he had once.

Obviously this is a worst case scenario, but get him to check out www.chocolatefoot.co.uk for some hook ups, and get racing - dragon dh series is best, but will require some travelling.

Cypress Trailwork?

^^ i personally love the idea that the "hardcore" are wetting their pants that cypress will be "paved". Sweet.
I'll see you at whistler on the big bike, but for a little rip with no fuss no muss, that all looks like tons of flowing fun. No pedal pump pump pump flow.

California uber alles (not DK)

um, sorry. I dont have the necessary to have a itunes store account (no c/card etc), otherwise i would as it is plainly a much easier way to get stuff. But, lets just SAY i did, and realise that i spent the 99c (more wisely) towards some beer.

Limewire is doing a pretty good job of restocking my ipod (after removing 2000 tracks of rubbish that my buddy uploaded. And the greatest punk rock band thread is about to be revisited to provide some more scope widening.

I figure that having bought 300 cds at uk prices ($30 [HTML_REMOVED] $45 each equiv) i have probably given the music industry enough money to be getting on with for now at least.

24" wheels being banned??

i can see why the idea came about for comps - just like trials - you could have mod class and 26 (or whatever its called). But DJ contests are more "cool" than "rule" IMO (just as likely to be a jam format as a straight out best trick dealie). If you start throwing in rules like that in the mix then the whole thing will become as irrelevant to most people as mod trials bikes are to the real world….

P.S i know someone who dirt jumps quite well on a 7" FS bike with 24" wheels, which category would she be in?
