    I think he's proved you might not need a trials bike, assumig you've got about 60 spokes in each wheel! (sorry, didn't count 'em :biggrin: ).

    Good stuff though, isn't it? I'd be flat on my backside before attempting a tenth of it, I've no doubt :biggrin:
  4. Err, yes, or rather, a trials bike. Those are all fairly basic trials moves. If you want to do anything decent worth posting on youtube, then that film proves that you need a trials bike.

    It's impressive stuff on a roadie though.

    My niece's boyfriend used to do trials stuff - pretty awesome, he's only 16. Stopped it as it was costing too much - all this jumping off 6 foot high walls and stuff

    Two of the mechanics I know at my old lbs in Stockholm were at Vancouver last year and said it was 'unbelievable'!

    This fella ain't too bad, either:
