Hell yes, that was an awesome video. Great riding to. I was really impressed with the setup in the garage. It would be cool if I could have something decent to ride on around here. The helmet part was pretty great.
I did like that helmet test. And I do love that Beatles song (and the album Rubber Soul in general). My only suggestion would to work on doing away with as many correctional hops as possible. I was feeling exhausted watching you guys recovery/correction hop so much. I wouldn’t even make it through my usual two hour rides…I’d be dead in 15 mins. Save up that energy. I noticed that it was causing you to miss some really nice gaps and ups. You’ll be surprised at how you are better able to judge trials situations with a more clear and focused head…and how quick and clean your lines turn out on video. You’ll be more controlled and accurate riders.
All around…a good video. I wish I had my own trials playground. Wait…I do. On campus, right outside my door! Haha!
Don’t mean to sound negative. I try to offer an honest constructive opinion and criticism. Feel free to do it to me, when I try to piece together a short film of my own next summer.
Thanks for the advice. Alot of those correction hops are because many of the obstacles are freakin’ bouncy. We’ve got jacks under the car to try to get rid of the suspension but it’s not 100% effective.
i’m trying to do fewer correction hops. not all the obstacles are sturdy, but yeah, there’s always room for improvement. i also need to work on pedal grabs. the 4 stack is something i can sif hop, but i’m using the low height as an easy hop for pedal grab practice.
trust us, we definitely know how lucky we are to have such a huge garage and the materials to put that together.
Nice movie, I liked it. Nice riding place too, but my indoor trials garage is bigger than yours! We have an unused old car shop/garage type thing in our backyard, that I have setup with trials stuff. Its really nice. But I dont have a car in it…
