Yep, sheer awesomeness....

And that Band of Horses song really does the video well.

I put quotations around the word trials because Danny really transcends that category. His fluidity and the appearance of effortlessness really sets him apart from other trials riders that I have seen.

Totally agree on the music - it just seems to enhance the video. Whoever chose that music, chose very well indeed.

I dunno. 36 spoke wheels with heavy gauge spokes on strong box section rims are damn strong.

Actually, smooth trials rider do not require super strong wheels.

True trials rims are wide with machined squares between spoke holes for lightweight (jump higher), quick acceleration (clear gap further)..

Worked on my bike some more. My spoke wrench came and I was able to true up the wheels. Got the wave out of the front and rear. I was also able to trim all of my cables and cap them off with some anodized blue caps. Looks pretty slick now. It's amazing to feel the front brakes! I proceeded to practice stoppies in front of the house. Still can't do a wheelie though.

So hopefully, I don't need new wheels for a while. I bought a cassette tool BUT I didn't get a chain whip. So the spoke guard will have to stay a while longer. I thought maybe I could remove it without the chain whip but I don't have a socket large enough to use it with my impact wrench. So I'll just buy the whip, I guess.

My bad I thought you have the tool to pull the freewheel.

Better than the chain whip is a tool that grips the teeth and then is clamped into the vice.

Another option would be a plate and a couple of bolts. And the vice.

Oh you meant clamp the cassette tool. I have a wrench that will fit but not a socket. My impact wrench would have been able to loosen the lock ring without the cassette tool. Not really wating to spend $60-70 for a Pedro's Vice-grips. I'll probably get a Pro Tool SR-1 chain whip.

Off to ride the full suspension bike in anger for the first time. Just been up and down the street since I finished it doing some tuning. Today it gets to meet some trails.

I don't have it at my house and not going to my other garage today. But I made a chain whip for pennies years ago. Took a piece of flat steel I had laying around. Drilled two holes in it and opened an old chain and attached it to the steel. Works perfectly and been using it for fifteen years.

I've had to do that to a chain whip I inherited. Needed 1/8" pitch stuff for the track and the chain whip only had 3/32nds.

All yer really doing is holding the cassette still while ya lefty loosey the lockring. Don't hafta be fancy.

I was *gonna* ride this AM but I remembered I was gonna go play UW Hockey tonite. Last time I tried both, it wasn't a pretty sight. Cramps in both calves.

So... tomorrow!

Here is another good Video of trials/freeride on a carbon road frame that is entertaining.
