    Here are some video clips from the 2003 German Championship series. All filming was done by list member Felix (and friends) so we have him to thank for this great footage. The clips are as I received them from Felix with no further editing and I am just uploading and posting them because he has a 56k connection and can't upload such large files. The file sizes are rather large but the quality is excellent. Thanks to Bill for providing the hosting space.

    The first clip (112.5 MB, 12:35) is of Vincent Hermance on mod! I thought this might be interesting for a lot of people as we don't get to see Vincent Hermance on 20" every day...

    The second clip (190.5 MB, 11:50) is of Felix himself riding 26" through several sections super smoothly at the German Championships. He is riding in the Master class which is roughly equivalent to expert in the US, ie., the class immediately below elite.

    have fun!

    Only watched hermet.

    The sections were far to short. They should have been longer and forced the riders to ride at a quicker pace. There was too much setup time and lack of flow with the riding. In the end the riding was nice even if they were short/easy sections.

    i watched both the vids..wow.

    felix, you seem to know what your doing....i was suprised when i saw that strato in the middle or whatever. that looked like a wicked tough course though.

    that megamo looks tiny though..ever thought about a longer bike?

    Yea very nice riding felix. Very smooth flowing style.

    But stick with your Megamo!! Show everyone you can still be great on a short bike! Or if you get the Koxx Caisso frame that would be cool too...

    The Megamo is definitely too short for me. I'm very tall, about 195cm, so it's not the best bike for me. My knees and femorals often hit the stem and bar.
    This is why I'm going to replace it with a BT RAVen 4.0 in the next weeks.


    No, it's just too short for me!
    I got used to the short bike and get along with it very well, but I'm sure I could do better with a longer bike. I ride UCI style, I never bunny hop, so why should I stick to my short Megamo?

    The Caisso is 1065mm, so it's long compared to the Megamo, but I think a really long bike, like a BT RAVen would suit me even better.

    Had the C. Springs expert sections been as easy as the world masters ,maybe I could have gotten through a section or three.

    I thought of the Vinco frame and I also got a very good offer for the frame, but I think the geometry is too extreme. And I don't like maggies, so I ordered a BT with V-mounts.
