Ok guys, I just bought my first dedicated trials bike and am trying to figure out where to start. I have a very strong mountain bike background, and can do some "trialsy" moves (i.e. trackstand, rear wheel hops-sometimes, 180 hops, manuals, and ride fakie). I'm mainly going to be sticking to more street trials riding as well. So where do I start? And what type of objects should I look to learn on? I've got plenty of space to build some obstacles on my property, so if you have any suggestions on stuff I can build and materials I can use, let me know! Thanks in advace for any help!
Hi all, I guess this qualifies in the beginners' section more than the media thread. Back in 2012, I had released a handbook covering all the techniques of trials riding, mostly seen from a natural/comp perspective. Now, after about three years of riding street trials to figure out what all the cool moves were about, and revamping my website with extra street sections, it was time I'd put up together a revised edition of my book. Hence with the extra street chapters, the book has grown up from 240 pages to 288 pages in a A5 format (210x148mm portrait). A neat feature I am also quite pleased about, I managed to integrate QR codes onto the how-to pages for a direct access to relevant slow-motion videos (via any smartphone QR scanner app) Check it out on www.wildgrip-publishing.com
