Project 1 - Finally Done...

The weather is finally improving, the daylight is slowly extending and a decent weekend of weather, friends and riding enabled me to film the final few clips of Project 1.

Riding brakeless is a whole new challenge, something I have done before, but never gave much time to. Riding trials without any brakes is pretty stupid. It is scary and for someone as injury prone as myself; pretty risky.

None-the-less, the satisfaction felt when you manage to pull off that line you have been eyeing up, then trying for an hour makes it all worth while. If it wasn't for 'demo season' starting soon, I'd probably keep the brakes off for an indefinite amount of time. Maybe next year...

Either way, I have made a no frills edit; just me, my brakeless Inspired, and a camera...


I want to thank Dave at Inspired / Trialtech for his support with bits and pieces.

Also a mention to Tartybikes for the help and support they have given me since I can remember, and while I am no longer a 'team' rider, I wouldn't recommend any other shop to buy your trials trinkets from. Cheers guys. I also look forward to seeing what the Tarty Team Riders come up with in the future.
