What tutorials do you want to see?

7 comments

Hey guys, I'm getting ready to start making some tutorials for BikeTrials.com this fall. So it's worth asking in the Beginner section. What do you want to see? Beyond riding tutorials are there any tech / setup / etc vids you want?

bleeding brakes and ANY gap or up to front advice you've got!

Front wheel moves, I'm still horrible at them.

Side hop onto a small object. My back wheel always goes off the back.

Wheel grinding. Harsh vs light, tools needed, angle to use, that sort of thing. There was some discussion at the Shoot First comp on Sunday and it was very interesting but I was listening to 3 conversations at once and didn't join in. Um, how to keep your grips from moving down the bars. The DIFFERENT ways to bleed besides a full bleed. Some demo vid on working the air out with an open syringe on the lever. Is there some way to figure out if air is coming in instead of fluid leaking out? Is that possible? How to make a carbon fiber down tube protector (oh wait, that's for Tony, never mind).

When I can ride again I'd love to help you out. I did a grinding video about 13? Years ago.

 

Tarty bikes has some good how to tutorials...

  • 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
  • Mustache, Jim Cochrane (aka cockmaster), Spaceman and I all trekked southwest about 5 hours to enjoy a slippery June Comp and camping at the Candy Town Motorcycle Club near Hershey PA. The weather was humid and rainy but great fun and laughs were enjoyed by all. Joe’s Bike Shop provided generous schwag bags, mother nature and Devin H provided the rest. We managed to get to Candy Town MCC in time to assist with a little section prep and camp set up. Mustache, who doesn’t ride trials, made this great vid for us and I think it is a good representation of the Sport sections and just generally a fun comp. Incidentally Mustache also showed us that non water proof cameras can hold a hell of a lot of water and still operate, as he found his camera hanging on the tent side literally filled with water Sunday AM. After pouring the water out of the battery bay he continued to shoot this vid. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUgButANYoU
