    I put together some clips of me riding, doing some minor tricks and etc.
    It's my first to combine more than one clip, and it's not really all that great IMO.

    Impressive. For some variety. Put the mini jump thing at the top of the dhsection and jump into the tranny. On that ramp to skinny...pull up the front wheel and drop it...oh and wear a helmet.

    Nice job on the video MadMan2k. Glad to see you're still plugging away. Have not seen a post from you in a while. I can't do anything like what you were doing in your video around here where I live. Too many old people and ashpalt! Keep up the good work. I wish more people on this forum would send in video's of themselves. I enjoy seeing other peoples skills at work.

    14 steps, wow :O

    Wheelies are sometimes kinda hard to land, but to help with controlling the front wheel, for practice, try moving it sideways on purpose, then the other direction, then straightening it. Of course, dont try to turn too much if you start coming down from the wheelie...

    Heres a tip. When you do a wheelie you need to be leaning MUCH farther back. You aren't lifting high enough and you are pedalling to much. Ideally you want it so you can pedal REALLY slow and/or stop pedalling and be able to maintain the wheelie.

    He's absolutely right. Get back to that balance point and use the rear brake to stop yourself from over rotating.

    5'3" with a 20 incher?!?! I'm 5'11" and I ride a 17incher. It's no wonder you can't wheelie that thing. Are you even able to get your weight over the rear tire?

    Hence the "Got broadband?" bit.

    I'm biased, but you could ask the folks that have already seen it, during this:

    Nice work. Some very recognizable trails there ...

    Schleyer is a little different this year than in the vid. I assume this was from last year? I have always loved the versatility of your movies and riders. Would love to see Garbonzo from your perspective.

    Now I just ask myself, why is it sunny out and why am I stuck at work....100yards from heaven and can't even ride.

    BTW that little kid rocks.

    Oh yeah...I assume this is a compilation of all your movies?

    And then the tandem at the end. Thats great haha ...

    Thanks for making me wanna go ride

    Mael, you could have clicked the edit button on your first of three posts. Instead of three seperate posts.

    Schleyer was actually from 2002. I'm anxious to ride the new stuff but haven't been able to carve out the time.

    That kid is having even more fun now that he's off that 16" coaster brake bike.

    Mine had that in it too. But some great descents. Very quick shot of mid schleyer and some of its parts. I have a feeling you would love Garbonzo (from watching previous vids) and some of the new trails being put in lower. They are doing some amazing work on the mountain

    Cool kid...

    Hell, yeah, it's a full boinger. 20 inchi, heh makes the 15 inch bikes seem so small. No, I can't get my but over the rear tire, but I have enough technique so I can take 1-2 pedal strokes wheelieing, by starting off at like 1 kmph.

    It's 23 minutes long so you didn't see the entire video if you stopped on the climnbing bit.

    "Xc" trails, "freeride" trails, "DH" trails, they're all in there.

    I'm not sure who or what that is directed at but if it's about the picture that I posted, that bike has no suspension, nor a front brake.

    It's a 20" mini.
