Thought I’d post this, inspired by the Edinburgh trials vid. Not to start a 20″ vs. 26″ debate though. It’s just some great filming, of amazing riding in my home town. If you know Brighton you’ll know how crazy some of the riding is. There’s a few more sections on youtube, but I highly recommend the dvd (Brighton Ain’t Ready), especially if you do know the town.
Some real nice riding – love the backwards thing with the front wheel turned – and the manual up the steps was sweet.
…but grinding on stuff really annoys me…
It does actively damage the street furniture, and it’s that as much as anything that gives “urban sport” (if that’s the correct term) such a bad name, – its not just bikes – skateboarders and fruitbooters do it too. One of the nice things about the Danny Macaskill vid was that he didn’t grind stuff and seemed to make very little use of his bash ring too.
anyway – just a little bugbear of mine. The kid’s got skills.
