    I had been riding for a little over 4 months. Might give some of you other beginners like me something to relate to. And it could give all you experienced riders a good laugh ehh? Don't get your hopes up though...

    that is fucking great if you have been riding only for four months, and haven't ridden any trials stuff before that.

    I rode a cheesy full sus for a couple of years before that. And I did some hopping around on it. My record then was about 5" up. I rode mostly xc/freeride back then. It probably helped my balance somewhat. But I had only had that bike for a little over 4 months when I made that vid.

    I had never hopped once on the backwheel before I got the kona.

    BTW. I've ordered a ZOO! pitbull. Finally a "real" trials bike. No more riding on a wannabe trials bike.

    My current bike is a much modified 03 Kona scrap.
    Anybody wanna buy the frame when I get my pitbull? :D

    I've gone through a big change over the past months. From loving suspension, disc brakes, platform pedals and having a blatant disregard for weight to HATING suspension,disc brakes(for the rear at least) , platform pedals and I've become much more weight conscious(to a certain degree of course. Trials is demanding on the bike)

    nowadays beginners can get lots of videos of the worlds best riders. this allows them to instantly adapt to a very high level of riding and get an idea what is possible on a bike. when i started there were no videos available except of hans rey. those days you were good if you could do pedal kicks. :D

    Sheez! I'm schooled once again! 4 months on that bike?! Wow. I'm a beginner, and consider myself zoomin' along, but you're riding so well you may just be a top pro in a few years.

    -I'm feeling schooled
