 "Leo has been riding Veronique's bikes in an unofficial capacity for a few years now, but with the departure of his sister , we can even save on shipping cost during the pandemic by him just keeping her bikes."

There, fixed it. It's not like they have any bikes to give away anyway.

 I think Leo’s face says it all, “But this is the exact same bike Vero was riding. It even has her name on the too tube!”

 oooph! Bit harsh! We have actually been giving Leo his own bikes for a few years, but this year he wants to step up his riding and create more content and we couldn't be more happier to help him out in more of a formal manner!

 @MarinBikes: Given the quantity of my sweets he's eaten I get a free pass.

 Hey Marin bikes, great news on both counts!

If you're going to do "How To" videos please could you do something with a lot more depth than the standard YouTube stuff. YT definitely does not need another 10 minute 'how to bunnyhop' video, but it could really do with a 10 part series on the basics of bunnyhops for example.

As I've said on the comments many times over the years, it's impossible for pros to go back to basics without someone to teach. If you've been doing trials for 20 years you simply can't comprehend how physically tough it is for someone who doesn't have all the stabilising muscles needed and how long it takes to build that up. That's before you get to the skills, overcoming the fear, battling the inner voice etc.! I'd love to see Duncan tackle this and take a complete newb from beginner to trials pro. That would be a great series.

PS: If you want a middle-aged man with a sore back and little bottle as your subject hit me up..!

 A moped is definitely not a bunny, the trick needs a new name

 @Brklss: if you've leant how to do a 3 foot bunny hop like Duncan Shaw or Danny M without tuition kudos to you. You should make a video!

 @mi-bike: I was talking about the big trials move that people like Duncan do. I'd have a bit of inner voice going back hopping off a container! www.pinkbike.com/news/podcast-duncan-shaw-on-the-evolution-of-drop-and-roll-street-trials-and-media.html

 Youtube could could definitely do with more "how to..." videos that are actually how to videos and not just "see how well I can do this thing?" videos.

 Perhaps we should have 10 cute baby bunnies instead of a how to video? That would be nice. And fuzzy. And fluffy. LOOK AT THOSE EARS!
