Yes, I can do normal time machine on the peg pretty good. But I'm still timid when on the pedal so I don't pull it into a tight fast spin... not yet, anyways. Getting closer each day.

Cool! It looks like you go into the right direction. Can you do a good normal timemachine on the peg?

Eh, the video isn't very good so I'll just put it here:

Too bad I didn't land it but for now I'm concentrating on just balancing it. Soon I'll start spinning it tighter/faster and eventually get the courage to put my other foot over the head tube and onto the other pedal.

Went out today and started stepping up to the pedal during a time machine again.. Got a couple attempts on video so I can analyze what I'm doing. Might upload and share it but have to figure out how to edit/upload/youtube all that crap, never done so before.

If I do upload videos and make a thread, where should I do so? In general flatland forum or in media or what?

That sounds great! I can imagine how you feel about the upcoming parcel  :)
Timemachines on the pedals are serious stuff! I never learned such tricks and have much respect for this. Good luck for relearning them!

I'm loving the ares tire. Spins great, perfect amount of grippyness and is shaped good so it feels nice rolling in both straight lines and in circles.. Doesn't require a break in period like the frequency g do.

Tread is way thinner then the frequency g so I suspect it won't last as long. Let's see how long it lasts, my last frequency g took about 2 months before the threads started showing.

I'd love to go to this but after buying a new frame I'm probably too tapped out money wise for the airfare and hotel. I'm gonna try though.

Hoping somebody puts something together on the US west coast this year, even if it's just a small gathering I'd still be willing to make the drive. If anyone knows of anything in the works this year let me know. Thanks.

I cringe every time I see someone riding without shoes. Can you imagine the pain of bailing hard and stubbing your toes either on the ground or into the spokes or whatever? :shudders:

Went back to the skatepark today and had an awesome session. I replaced my balding front frequency g with an ares a-class tire, so I wasn't sliding out anymore when carving. Felt awesome with the new tire, almost like I was floating during the transitions  when turbining. I like these ares tires and I'm starting to like riding on the smoother surface. Good day today.
