Was going to ask about tapered steer tubes, but I see you didn’t answer any of these other questions below for the past year. Even though at 3:00 you said “let me know in the comments below and I’ll get back to you…” You flaky, useless turd.

Dionjie manrique says:



Which brand is the rear tire at 0:19?

Donik Wolf says:

its basically a Freestyle Mountain Bike or just a street mtb

lokgamers says:

Is suspension necessary for street riding?

cristobal montesino says:

What is the diference between a trial bike with saddle and a dirt jump bike??? Please answer☺

Edward Reyes says:

I’ve decided to build a DJ rig but I’m curious as to what’s the differences in fork types? I understand most DJ’s are generally set up with either an 80mm, 100mm or a 120mm fork but what’s the between a DJ specific fork vs a regular MTB fork with the same amount of travel???. Are the stations wider like a longer travel fork but with much less stroke length? are the air chamber internals set up for a stiff setup only? Basically, what makes a DJ specific fork different -if at all- from all other forks?

J M says:

Could you do a video on which leaves to wipe my brown eye on when I drop a quick turd by the side of the trail?

damntall2000 says:

Awesome video! I’m a beginner in dirt jumping, and I’m improving fast! But there are always other things I want to try along with the dirt jump practice, and some of those things include practicing street trials.

So I’ve been thinking… It SEEMS to me like a dirt jumper’s geometry is similar to a proper trials bike (not the seatless competition ones… I mean like Insipired Bikes, for example). I know the handlebars on a trials bike like that are somewhere between dirt jump and BMX for extra reach when doing tricks like up to rear… etc. BUT apart from that…

Q: Apart from suspension forks and handlebars, how different are dirt jumpers and street trials bikes in areas of the geometry like BB height or wheelbase/reach (or other areas) that might matter to a beginner?

I feel like I can do both jumping and trials practice on a single bike like a dirt jumper with the fork locked out… until I get good enough at trials to invest in an actual trials bike with a fully rigid fork. Can you shed some light on this for me??

Jason wong says:

Basically a trials bike with front suspension

Z H says:

do you think this bike would make a good all rounder? commuting/trails/dirt jumps? nothing hardcore just want to get into it to keep fit and a bit of fun but normal cyclings boring and i dont like normal mountain bikes or full suspension.

Oskar Szymanski King says:

Liam Bristow says:
