    If your front wheel is on top of an object, and your rear wheel is touching the front of it, but not touching the ground, is it still possible to get up?

    yup- its called a hook. the steeper it is the harder it is. also if the top of the object is flat it can be super hard. its possible.

    Well I know when you do it at speed, but I was thinking if it could be done static....

    yup. it can be done static. same thing. steeper is harder. flatter tops are harder. in my "music video project" you can see this around 1:30 in.

    So is it logical to say that the maximum height you can up is really only limited by how high of an object you can hook your front wheel on?

    Why can't top riders hook up 7 or 8 foot objects then?

    man,.. I e-bitchslaped this kid for principle when he said he'd copy manifesto for me. I'm bitter just cause it's trials, I mean how freaking small of a community is that? Ryan Leech isn't my buddy or anything, but I've met the guy and well it's like a personal copyright thing,.

    Props must be given.

    merci boucoup pour ca. its for the fans i do the goods not the butt monkeys that ruin everything they touch.

    also- ross, i just got the 7 bucks a few minutes ago. i will get your copy in the mail tomorrow.

    bloodhound- the dc disk has ~12 minutes of coos footage, cotrials 3 and 4 and the rest is comp coverage of worlds split between mod and stock. the total time for the bonus disk is about an hour. the regular paradise found has local colorado stuff, dh racing and croatia footage.

    im going to recomend to people that they do not buy PF or the DC anymore. projects currently in the works will be much more worth your time and money. cous dvd and croatia dvd. enough euro to make your kidneys bleed.
