    I just checked Leech's web site and it says to email him to request a copy of the DVD. I'm guessing that means that it is released. Has anyone seen it? What's the word?

    I don't think you should email him about it. Just go to www.thetrialsinshop.com and place your order through Ken. It should be ready to ship pretty soon.

    As far as I know no one has received copies yet. Last I heard they were being held up and looked over at the border. The people who posted aboots it on bt.ca didn't have the vids but they were invited to the premiere. Good times by all and I'll get some pics up in the drinking thread somewhere on this forum when I grab em off my cam.

    The clip is from a rider here and it did make Leech's cut. Unfortunately the clip on our site I think looks better than Coope's angle.

    I'm really interested to see some reactions. I know it will be fine in Canada, but I'm worried aboots the states. Just sorta seems that unless its a koxx or a tap you guys aren't really caring too much. (no offence) It's not bad cause it doesn't take too long before you forget aboots the no set up hops as it doesn't look too forced. As long as people take it for what it is it should be fine I think.

    It does have one move that I believe blows away that train track to train track to rail teaser...but you will have to get it to see.

    Alot of trials riders in the states im sure will appriciate the french/UCI style moves. I know that for a fact in the northeast -->new england especially, alot of the riders really like leech's style. Also i believe trials almost allows a rider to better appriciate the difficulty of many of the moves and tricks the freeriders/street riders/and people like ryan leech are pulling off.

    The DVD is almost here....the company reproducing it is expecting to have it early next week(Monday,we hope).

    Ryan had a small premiere last week, to rave reviews. Like many who saw it and have been around trials for enough years, I believe it will do what Revolution did for trials in 98'. Ryan's proven himself over and over to be one of the leading innovators of our sport, and Manifesto proves that without a doubt.

    As for popularity of the DVD in the US, looking at all the pre-orders, it will sell very well, worldwide.

    Brett,

    I agree with your post for the most part, However, not everyone in the states agrees with the predominately Colorado obsession with taps. Like Umby said here in New England there is a strong focus on street/progressive riding in the style of Ryan Leech (who is one of my top 3 favoriate riders...) But yes, I feel like there will be alot of bitchin' stateside after the release of this video. However, I cant say that I will be complaining (assumption, if the editing sucks or something I might bitch, but ride quality, I am sorta terrified by what I am going to see...)

    Obvioulsy I haven't seen this video, but the other clips and riding I've seen by ryan I haven't liked (his part in Kranked 4). I'm not anti-street riding either, or at least wasn't when I saw his clips but I really just didn't like his style at all. It's hard to explain but everything looked too perfect, like his manuals for example. I can think of lots of other riders I would rather watch before ryan even if he is pulling off bigger/harder moves...

    I'll say colorado has a heavy UCI ball sucking obsession, I'm no exemption. I have no interest in the movie, but I'm sure tons of people will order it and it will sell fine- leech is a big name, people are excited for this vid.

    Being new to trials I am not appreciative of UCI style vs. Leech's style. Cold someone explain for a newbee? I have watched all of the videos posted in the video section of this forum plus all of the Echo videos posted at their site. The only Leech I have seen is his clips on his site and the little bit in West Coast Style, the mountaing biking instructional video.

    UCI-in short you can't use your pedals, cranks, or bashring/gaurd to rest on objects. only tires can touch the ground. Naturaly/manmade
    BIU-you can use your tires, pedals, cranks, and bash to manuevuer around obstacles in a nutshell. Natural/man made
    Ryan Leech-street style riding. VERY smooth. get some vids to see for yourself. i don't think he competes much but don't hold me to that

    you can use your pedal/bash/ring if you want, it just counts as a dab in uci rules.

    Thanks guys. So, do UCI and street style bikes tend to differ?

    YES. There are generally three kinds of trials bikes or so. UCI, Normal, and Street.

    A UCI frame is going to be really long, and extremely trials specific. Not a good bike for beginers or street. KOXX, PURE

    A "normal" frame is going to be shorter than the UCI frame, a little bit more well rounded, easy to learn on, easy to do street moves and trials. MONTY, BRISA

    A street bike, or street trials is going to be quite short, more set up for speed and bunny hopping. This bike is going to suck on the rocks as much as the UCI bike is going to suck for manuals and bunny hops. PLANET X, NORCO

    The one new thing that I have seen Leech doing but haven't really heard of anyone copying was the reverse 180 sidehop deals. Basically you know how you sidehop 180 from one edge to the other? Well normally you spin the same way as you are moving. Leech spins the oposite way that he is moving. Sort of Like the alley-oop airs bmxers do on the quarters and such.

    Other than that there isn't really anything in the vid that is completely brand new, just regular tricky stuff done in the weird places and such like he's known for.

    I'm sure the video will sell fine in the states. I'm just interested to hear some of the feedback on it from the states.

    Someone brought up his manual stuff. There is only one real manual line in this and its my hometown and its very basic compared to the ones he is known for. Very tech but not too flashy.
