    Most precise rider....

    Who's the most precise rider out there? In terms of accuracy, balance, and/or consistency?

    I've been watching alot of the trials vids online lately and decided to watch Manifesto again and watching his sidehops to skinnies was definitly sick, and alot of his front wheel moves were sick too......reminded me of how crazy that guy was after watching all these Hermance, and Cous videos....

    Who do you think the most precise rider is?

    the most best precisioner rider would have to be.........Leech, although it is tuff to say since precision can apply in many different ways.

    Probably you...falling & landing on your back. Can't get any more precise then that :x:

    Ryan Leech definitely has his smoothness...I don't know, I haven't seen a lot of pro's in various terrains. All I know is that they sure rider x100 smoother then I do.

    Yeah, which is making me wonder if on his Manifesto, they only showed ONE of the MANY MANY MANY mess-ups he had....a good example was the one of that curb section...

    But then again, he IS that good, so who knows...anybody here ride with him? Another thing I noticed were that his rims squeek like MAD, but he doesn't have a grind, nor tar...how the hell does he get good braking? Maybe the "Vanilla coke" on the rim trick :greddy::rofl:

    He does the manifesto style fairly consistently at demos. I've also read that plaz pads can be noisy. Maggies can be plenty good enough without a grind or tar. You just have to keep a clean rim. After 8 years or so riding trials he's probably pretty good at setting them up too..

    IMO the railway stuff he does is the definition of precision on a bike. And until I see someone else do something that impresses me as much he is the most precise rider I know off.

    And a combination of the manifesto stuff and his smoothness makes him the most entertaining and stylish riders there is.

    That's what I think.

    i have never my self seen anything nearly as accurate from a stock rider as i have from many mod riders. Mod riders just seem to own sidehops to thin stuff. The most accurate rider ive ever ridden with in the flesh is definatley riki. Stockrider, who knows.

    why was this thread started? seriously there is no absolute, you cant compare the precision of leech to the precision of a euro. Its like comparing a point guard to a center in basketball totally different positions and roles to fill... not trying to be an ass by ripping on you, but this is like the 100X time you have asked an opinion/vague question in an absolute form. We will never know.

    There are too many pointless threads like this.

    That said, I think the most precise stock rider is Caisso and no idea for mod rider.
