I rode my skinniest skinny today. I put down 3 star pickets end to end and rode along them. They're about 4mm wide. I feel special.

Edit: Oh, I also hit a 6ft gap SIF for the first time without not failing at it. It was 2 concrete slabs with grass in between them.

The other week me and Andrew Carter went to a bike trials comp. After it we both spent about 30min to an hour practising riding a really skinny cable, we both mananged to get to the end, it was about 3 or 4m long and wobbled like crazy

That's great. And Yes I'm envious! I should practice going backwards more. Then maybe I'd get it.

Good for you!
Question.. is a pedal strike when the pedal hits the ground? I'm guessing this happens only on smaller wheels..

My brag? I split my right knee pad yesterday. Why is that a brag? Cause it didn't hurt a bit.

well in 3 weeks (ish) since i got me uni after a period of not having one (few months) i can now...

>1 foot ride with foot on crown
>go to pedal then to rubber up things about as high as a picnic table
>180 unispin
>no footer
>superman (like grab tyre and stick legs out)
>shifty a 5 set and rolling hop a 6 set
>ride 14 stairs (cant find a bigger set as of yet)
>sif hop up stairs 2 at atime and if the stairs arent really close togeather can do 3 at a time
>1 rev down a 4 stair ((whilst rolling hopping, have seen it in shauns part of a good movie i think) Just learnt today)
um thats all i can think of right now and thats probably it, all of these i could not previously do except i could ride 1 foot with foot out to side for short distances and superman.

this thread was a good idea, and it came at a good time....

Today I one-footed wheelwalked about 4 or 5 metres. Very good.

I'm also getting close to seat-wraps and I tried grinding a rail today(didn't get much distance, but it was fun nevertheless).

Well keep trying and you'll get there. Also congratulations on the OWW Ivan.

I learning to SIS coasting my torker. But to no avail. All i can do is to keep trying and never give up.

Yesterday I managed to take my second foot off the pedal and attempt to coast/glide for the first time! I made it a whole 8 inches!

Did you measure w/a cycle computer? What length cranks? That's about 220 rpm. Crazy fast.
