    Default FS2019 Silly Rabbit Trix Pointless Prize

    Biking's more fun when you pepper it up with silly trix. I've come up with a list of Silly Rabbit Trix listed below in increasingly difficult order:

    1. Ride Up Curb
    2. Ride No Hands
    3. Bunny Hop
    4. Ride Down Stairs
    5. Superman
    6. Ride Up and Along Embankment
    7. No Hands + 1 Foot
    8. 10-second Trackstand
    9. Hop Onto and Off a Bench
    10. Ride onto, along, then down MBT walls
    11. Ride (or Hop) Up Stairs
    12. Ride completely up MBT Metro Stairway
    13. Ride completely down MBT Metro Stairway
    14. No Handed Hopping in a Circle
    15. No Hands + No Feet


    The harder the trick is, the more points you get for each. You can even get "Drop Bar Double" points for most of them if you do it on a bike with drop bars and tires <32mm because that makes things a lot harder IMO.

    Demo:



    I've made a chart that lists descriptions, qualifiers, points, if it gets Drop Bar Double points, and possible real life uses:
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

    As you complete a trick, I'll add your username to the spreadsheet.

    Some rules:
    1. For the trick to count, you have to post a video (or a link to it) in this thread of you successfully doing the trick and riding at least 2 pedal strokes after completion. If you crash right after the trick, sorry, it don't count.
    2. The video has to remain up here until the end of Freezing Saddles 2019.
    3. Only tricks done after the official start of Freezing Saddles and the end of the day on 3/19 count for this competition.
    4. Only one of the attempts counts (the better one) for each trick. So if you do a bunny hop on a flat bar bike, then later on a drop bar bike, I'll count the points for the drop bar bike since it has higher points.
    5. Don't sue me.
    6. You have to wear a helmet for the trick to count.
    7. For the timed trix, don't slow down the video.



    The guy and gal with the most points wins a pair of Trix rabbit socks (as seen here). If a tie, the person with the most style wins.

    EDIT 1/3/19: I'll be adding more tricks, and don't mind suggestions. If I add more, I'll be adding it to the spreadsheet, on the list above, and a video of me trying it myself.
    EDIT 1/7/19: Added "No Handed Hopping" and "Hopping onto and off a bench".
    EDIT 2/25/19: Added "Riding along the MBT walls" and "Going Up or Down MBT stairs" ()

    This would be a two-fer: bunny hopping up stairs

    I'd like to put out a call for someone to help me learn some of these, and then we can film each other's stunts. PM me or comment here if you're interested (will buy beer in exchange for teaching).

    Yeah, I saw this video earlier this week which gave me the idea for the Drop Bar Doubler points. It's so much harder to do this stuff when you're crouched over and cramped up like that.

    I don't have a drop bar bike, but maybe I can borrow someone else's to try this

    If you were closer, I'd consider it, but I'm all EASTSIIIIDE! When we meet for the FS group rides, we'll do some practice/sessioning.

    I think learning to ride slower until you eventually trackstand helps with the balance, and balance is the key for most of these. Also, speed. Go faster and you'll stay uprighter cuz gyroscopy and stuff. Maybe

    This is a vid from 12 years ago of me going up stairs on a rigid singlespeed mtb with Jones bars:

    In a similar vein I'd like to put out a call for folks with mad video compositing and FX skills.

    So the top prize is 2 pairs of Trix socks: one pair for the guys and one pair for the gals.

    Be safe and have fun!

    Default Trix submission

    Track stand (with hands, drop bar bonus):


    I believe this is worth 20 points. I have a while to learn no-handed.
