"There's no clutch, that's a weird feeling!"
That was the opening line from Aaron Colton's video about transforming an Alta Redshift into a freestyle stunt bike. I'm proud to say I've known Aaron since he was an adolescent. When he talks about wheelies, I pay attention. And I also take notes.
You may recall in the Riding Impressions section I said that, for me, the hardest thing about riding a trials bike without a mechanical clutch is how to generate lift without velocity. Yes, the 5.7 will lift the front wheel if you wack the throttle open abruptly. But that action also gets you moving forward pretty fast - which is not good for trials.
