Bunny up to candy foot and testicles

1 comment

Yes it is definitely going to be the next big move. Takes true grit and balls of steel to lean. Approach the object (in this case it was a sizable stump) follow the traditional wrong foot forward to initiate the front wheel lift about 1 bike length away from the target. As the candy foot comes around punch a good kick aiming to land the rear tire on the object. during the trip up take the wrong foot off the pedal and stick it out to the side in a fashionable but not flowery way and keep it there. This should bring the rear wheel to land upon the target whilst you have your brake applied candy foot forward, wrong foot out to the side and your weight centered and balance true. So here is the final move. When you release the brake you will have no choice but for the candy foot to proceed from the 3 o'clock position to the 9 o'clock position propelling you off the object. The landing will be candy foot down testicles against the top of your headset wrong foot still free.

  • Wondering if anyone has researched and or successfully converted some sort of non trials mtb 26" frame to a streety trials bike. Something with a long-ish top tube, 0drop bb or so, short stays, low front end like 60-80mm fork and rear disc.
  • I purchased a heatsink tensioner for my Hex, replacing the Trialtech two wheeled tensioner I have been using for years. I now have more chain than I would like hanging down. I am a half link away from being able to shorten any further and would like to use a half link. This is where it gets confusing, I have never done this before and have read on every chain description on Tartybikes that the split link that comes with every chain sold is not recommended for trials use. There are no alternatives given. I have read that people just push a link pin out enough to remove the required links and push the partially removed pin back in. This makes me uncomfortable. If I was to use a half link I would have to do this twice or, I would have to use two split links which is not recommended for trials use by Tartybikes to put the chain together. Both options sound sketchy to me. Can someone with experiential knowledge and experience please explain how I can use a half link without compromising the chains integrity so I won't worry about my chain snapping on every drop?! Split link image provided for those who may not know what it is.
  • I have the clean t13 v2 brake lever with echo calipers. I can't get the pistons to retract consistently. I've bled them several times, lubed and exercised the pistons but still can't get them to work right. Has anyone else had this issue? Thanks for the help!
