    I didn't break my fork but I did get up a 5 1/5 ft very near vertical.

    I can't hardly rear wheel bar height ,but I can do that .This sport makes less sense every day! :werd:

    I got completely smashed before noon yesterday and pinched a nerve in my neck doing shoulder presses.I am a vagina. I can hardly move it now.

    That's pretty hot, yea this sport can be weird with respect to how you improve.

    Sucks about the shoulder and the vagina thing. :down:

    Keep up the good work.

    Today was the first day I've really focused on hooks, I was playing on a wall even with my head, and I'm 5'11", but it was slanted back about 5 degrees. Only barely got it to two wheels, and that was with a pivot thrown in. Got some work to do.

    how much of a run up are you guys getting? Anything over 2 complete pedal rotations wouldn't be so useful.

    I've seen Josh do some strange stuff, including really big hooks. Oh, and he can rear wheel handlebar height with a one pedal, so don't listen to him.

    Looks like your trials riding career is over, there's probably a place for you in an artificial sex doll. :eek:
