- PSA – Guy Martin episode 2 channel 4 – 8pm
Only seen the start, but pretty disappointed about being able to glue a ski onto the bottom of the frame rails
No different to using a specific front/rear tyre IMO, its not like it affected the bikes ability to function as a bike.

Nitro Circus use the ‘grande cajones’ branch of science. the bigger your balls are, the higher/faster/stronger/longer you go.
I did like the way the developers of the hydrofoil just said “there’s too much going on here to work out how/if it will work” better just give it a go.Posted 4 years ago
What I didn’t understand is why they didn’t trial it more in shallower water where the bike doesn’t sink down to 30 metres (maybe they did but it wasn’t shown). Surely this is more about technique than anything else?
I imagine he’s had a lot of these things to do over the past year and just didn’t have time.

Why didn’t the bike have some sort of transmitter on it? I thought a float on a bit of rope was a bit low-tech.
The transmitter wouldn’t have helped, they knew roughly where the bike was, which is all a transmitter would have done, and that water was very murky, even a strobe probably wouldn’t have shown up more than a meter or so away; their torches were very bright, and only picked it out around that distance.Posted 4 years ago
The buoy was the obvious choice, and it worked second time, it was only fouling on the marker caused it to come off.mick_rSubscriber
Dunno… but he has got one of these.
On the Holcombe ride last month he mentioned the Volvo had some internal engine snappage 🙁
I was looking for stuff on the Hope website the other day and they showed the Rourke on display in reception (complete with rusty drivetrain).Posted 4 years ago
