Calgary was a hub for Urban Freeriding back in the day. The image below is the 9th image ever uploaded to Pinkbike and it shows Dave pushing things back then too. So cool to see how dedicated the users of the site are to the sport of biking as a while. Nice work Dave!

 what's the point of the front wheel?
  • - 12
 you really haven't seen any front moves?

How about all the up to front, wheel swap, and gaps to front he did?

 Light, quick and powerful. Super stoked to still be able to look up to him as a rider ten years later.

 I never understood the physics of trial biking. I mean, most of those things I wouldn´t be able to do jumping, but these guys do it on a bike (take 3:09) ! Wattaaa...
Anyone can clarify?
PS – work in a construction site also with a lot of concrete pipes and walls, feel free to drop by!

 The idea behind a hop (and most coaches will clarify this) but as high as you can lift your front wheel is the height of your hop. Watch someone hop onto a picnic table in slow motion and you will see this.

That combined with skill and experience make people able to do things like that.

 Totally RAD! i love that trials is being shown more often on pinkbike it is really motivating me to get a trials bike!

 Yeah... it's begun in my mind as well. LOL

 Nice to see trials get a bit more coverage! Maybe a trials pod soon?!

 if there is any genre of biking that takes skill, it's trials.
  • - 2
 and flatland bmx
  • + 6
 It takes skills and balls
  • + 6
 that is a redundant statement. what type of biking doesn't take skills?
  • - 6
 What type of biking doesn't take skills? Hmmmm, road, XC & by comparison to trials, DH takes f*ck all in the way of skills too.
  • + 4
 Seriously? Why hate on other riders? They all use different skills. Try to keep up with a talented road or xc rider. Shit, I get winded sprinting my bike to the end of the block.
  • + 1
 Yeah... @freeride-forever, that's a pretty shitty attitude to display.
You line up on your XC bike - hell, give you a 10k one - and I'll put Geoff Kabush next to you, or Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski, and see what happens when the starting gun sounds. LOL

 Wicked vid. Don't see enough trials these days. Smile
[Reply]
  • + 1
 This vid brings back memories of competing Expert Stock at the CPTA events in Belcarra & the Test and frequent the Thursday night Art Gallery group rides from back in the day. Great to see trials vids again. Might have to dig out my Koxx 1040 from the shed.

 right on. met that guy in Eau Claire once. Super nice dude. Cool to see him still riding trials.
  • - 2
 You sure it was him? There is a lot of people who ride trials in those same spots.
  • + 2
 Well, he was riding trials, in Calgary, his name was Dave. Could be wrong but if this is the same guy, then he used to ride trials in slippers/flip flops from time to time.
  • + 2
 Flip flops Haha.
  • + 1
 Hey, I've hit DJs in flippys down in Florida, don't knock it! Wink
[Reply]

 it is amazing how smooth he makes those landings, with a fully rigid bike, a drop that big on a dh bike to flat, would still give you some whip lash.

 I was listening to The Cure but turned it off to watch this, and The Cure are the ST. True story

[Reply]

 That's a goofy thing you're ridin' there. It almost kinda looks like a bike.

 v-brakes?
  • + 2
 Magura HS33
  • + 1
 Magura rear v brake front a few riders have been doing this recently seems to be really good set up
  • + 1
 hydraulic rim brake, trials you dont need to worry about your brakes killing your rims...
  • + 1
 its not just recently trials riders have always been using rims brakes
  • + 1
 What make a v-brake in the front better than an HS33? I'm running two HS33s on my trials bike now, but I'm thinking about switching to a disc in the front.
  • + 1
 I am geting sick of discs on my trials bike the feel is unreliable. I will be going maggy rear, V-brake front when I do my winter rebuild.
  • + 1
 vee brakes are lighter, just as powerful (in fact they are roughly 16% more powerful than hydraulic rim brakes), more adjustable (spring tension), can get spare parts in most bike shops (and even cables in superstores) plus you don't need to deflate your tyre to take the wheel off.

I still don't know why they are not more popular, I remember going to world cups and seeing riders struggling with brakes yet my vee brakes never let me down.

Video was sweet btw, top riding for sure!

 Ever Tried A Unicycle?
  • + 2
 Never have never will
  • + 1
 They are both fun, but unicycling hurts in some specific areas of the male body no matter how you ride. Trials is only painful when you crash (and the fact that you are ready to crumple after completing a line).

 Just saying that he is on one wheel most of the time.
