    Just though I’d draw your attention to this new vid from Cotic.

    I like!

    Cotic’s slide down the Cool Wall begins in earnest I see.

    The point is?
    Perhaps explains the ever increasing price of Cy’s frames ….

    A) Where were the rock gardens?
    B) I thought he looked pretty ungainly on that. Good skills to make the best of it though.

    He didn’t look like he was having anywhere near as much fun as he was on the Rocket video, so for that reason, I’m out….

    +1 for the ungainly comment btw.

    Don’t let the door hit you on the arse on the way out, will you? πŸ˜‰

    you missed out the ” full of self congratulatory, back slapping fkwits convinced they are the only true forum gurus allowed to comment”

    Couldn’t agree more. No one seems to have a good word to say about anything recently.

    Great fun nice cheeky trails πŸ˜€

    Recently? As in, during the last two weeks, gerryberry, seeing as that’s how long you’ve been here….

    Unless, of course, you mean in a previous log in life of something.

    Don’t matter how long i’ve been here. Do i need to earn my right to comment? Just because i’ve not logged in much, doesn’t mean i don’t read.

    Fair enough, just thought it a valid observation! No offence intended, etc.

    Don’t forget much of the miserableness probably stems from bitterness relating to an inability to ride a bike anywhere near as well as the chap in the video. It’s understandable really.

    Robz – member since ages ago thus qualified to comment.

    No worries. None taken. Just seems to be a lot of sarcasm and such. Not in a friendly way, but it may just be me. πŸ˜‰

    . Just seems to be a lot of sarcasm and such.

    Oh, really? Does there? You reckon?

    So what is wrong with pointing out that a video that starts off talking about rock gardens didn’t feature one single rock garden?

    Oh, and I did say “good skills”.

    … and he does look a bit ungainly on that bike πŸ˜‰

    Getting a little defensive aren’t ya? :mrgreen:

    Flipant negativity pervades the internet. Just read the comments on almost any You Tube clip. I think we are all guilty of it to some extent. I guess, if you dont have anything nice, or useful, or interesting, or funny to say, you log into a web forum πŸ™‚

    Is it just me thinking that they were sitting around wondering how they could market a big wheeled bike. draw backs, ‘not as much fun, not as agile, flickable and gnar as the old small wheeled bike.’ I know what we will do, have a film with somebody that is dead skilled flicking and hopping and sliding like mad then that will dispel any fears they have and customers will be happy to part with their cash again.

    Sorry after seeing this video your marketing magic does not quite work. It is a big wheeled bike for oversized giants, people who value speed over star wars landspeeder type action or people who are so skilled it doesn’t matter what bike they ride. Still looks fun though πŸ™‚

    no way that is a 29er, manuals and leaving the ground? and the wheels didn’t explode!

    can’t believe that a different wheel size for mountain bikes that has been around since the mid 90’s (earlier but tyre supply was the issue in the 80’s) is still causing a fuss like it’s a new thing? It just shows how slow and conservative mountain bikers are as group to adapt to anything different.

    Got bored just after half way and switched it off. I like the other vids more.

    I bought some cheap old skis from the charity shop here in sweden. I went skiing and a guys girlfriend in the lift queue asked him why my skis were different to their carving skis. He said mine were old fashioned and not as good. True but not enough for me to notice and not so much that they were any better at turning than me. Same with bikes. You do not have to buy new stuff to have fun or be fast. If not all Olympic xc racers use big wheeled bike then there is bugger all difference for us mortals so save some money and get a pension or something less boring instead.

    Size does matter. If you want to have fun on a bike, make sure its got 20″ wheels.

    If you just want to cross ground quickly, get one with bigger wheels.

    The inverse square law states that as the wheels get bigger, the fun factor reduces by a certain amount (I think its a quarter)

    did look a little like the bike was deciding lines rather than the rider once or twice

    it looks great but with a 26.5 inch inside leg I’d need a ladder. For that reason I’m out!

    I like bikes and videos with bikes in with skids n wheelies n that.

    I thought the rider looked like he was struggling to maintain his line at times. I doubt the American audience this is aimed at will notice however…

    Judging by the comments on Pink Bike, you are wrong about that.

    Thought the vid was great as I like to see what might have been had i decided to continue riding after my halcion BMX days as a teenager. I didn’t though, and now all I can do is appreciate the skills others have.

    I am in the market for a new HT frame this year, dependant on some cash coming in, and I almost bought into this 29er Solaris, then realised that I am 5ft 8 and actually just really liked the colour.

    Going to post a question of my own in a minute as. Have no one in the house who will discuss frames with me.

    He’s riding a hardtail along rough(ish) trails, it wouldn’t matter what size wheels he was riding he’ll always be ‘struggling’ to maintain a line… πŸ™„
