    Thats the best mod video I've seen in a long time. I actually kept some interest for the whole thing! For some reason or another, I usually like the Stock videos more, but this one was very nice!

    Loved those bank sections. To watch, not to ride :p. And the treeroot section was awsome aswell.

    Definitely the best mod vid I've seen so far! It really shows how difficult and rewarding natural riding can be. And it proves how hellishly hard a "simple" slope in the woods can become when you put some markers on it :p

    That guy is sick as hell. When the vid 1st started, I thought there was gonna be a song cause of the squeeling of his brakes, LOL. What kinda brakes set-up is he running, obviously HS33, but pads and a grind? Can't tell from the vid...

    Great video Felix. Like everyone has said, those sections looked mad hard, and still he rode them like it was nothing.

    Huh... Everything seems so easy to him. He just kind of floats around and cleans up. Very nice.

    Wasn't that guy in the graz comp video too?

    I definitely noticed his riding in that too. Yes floating is a good way to describe it.

    Marco uses Try-All rims, Koxx Bloxx and a very harsh grind.
    He grinds his rims very often and hardly ever uses his brakes to modulate.

    I know this is a kinda late response to this thread but did he have to build that fork custom with the HS33 on the back of the fork or did he do that himself and what are the advantages and disadvantages to having it there?

    Koxx has always made forks like that.

    when braking, the mounts are pressed against the fork legs, like on the rear where the mounts are pressed against the frame. Maybe it's stiffer or whatever, I don't know..
