Video: Ben Travis Hits the Streets on his Trials Bike in 'Daily Dose'

May 12, 2020
by Ben Travis  

At the start of the lockdown, the UK government confirmed that everyone was to stay at home and keep everyone safe. We were, however, allowed out once a day to get some exercise, but only if we stay close to home.

Unfortunately living in the city meant the MTB was out, so I thought I'd head out with my trials bike, my phone, and a tripod to see what I could film during my 'Daily Dose'.

Dropping in...

Trying some low risk tech...

Always good to practice skinnies...

 We have almost the same riding style minus 99% of what he just did. I have a black helmet just like him also.

 You haven't seen me ride. If you're heavier, they flop more.

 So what's the strategy to not get pinch flats on trials bikes? I always see tires slamming into walls and tables without pinching and I don't get it. Also sick vid.

 Hey dude, I’m set-up tubeless running 24” rimpacts in there and 35psi in both tires. The tubeless set-up has been a godsend though

 @santacruzbicycles What do I have to do to get a set of 24" Reserve carbon wheels for my trials bike? I see a lot of pro trials riders running them, but you seem to only have 27.5" and 29" rims available. Is this something that might be available in the future or an exclusive part only for your sponsored riders?

 Weird how quiet Aberdeen looks, good amount of different spots, that have not seen before!
Could be Ali C's stunt double or is it the other way round?

 Ali is a much bigger deal than me, so I'd guess that I'd have to be his obviously much handsomer stunt double.
