[pictures] Ricky Carmichael, BMX track, jumps, dirt, french mag

Hello guys

A full test of Ricky will be published in the french RC mag Auto RCM in the December issue.
As I am the one who did and wrote the test, we did some shooting with a friend (some additionnal shooting has been made by the editor in chief, but I don't have these pictures yet).

You'll see all the pictures we did here:
http://tom.kat.free.fr/ricky

thanks to Valerian for the pictures, and to Nuovaic for the video.

in french in the text :
POUR LES LECTEURS FRANCAIS DU FORUM:
Merci de ne pas poster, copier ou publier ce lien sur les forums francais. Auto Rcm est d'accord pour que je poste les photos sur un forum US, mais prefererait qu'elle ne soit pas visible sur les forums francais avant la parution du magazine. merci beaucoup

tom4,

Very nice video! Is it a complete standard setup or a modified/brushless motor?

Thanks jam.g, I'll see how it goes.
Be nice to see one (or more) tearing up the grass at the back of the rostrum at Skippy.

hints

Hi John Veal.

I supose you have some (a lot) knowledge about the Ricky bike ... may be you could give me some hints perhaps, how to make it better, i mean, improving the steering, the front fork and the rear shock, which hydraulic shock could be used instead of that.
If you have more suggestions/advices they are always welcome.
Thanks a lot.

Jose (in Lx)

Jose,
I don't have a Ricky bike! We can't get them here in the UK, but I'd really like to get one.
There are a few on this forum who do have them though, maybe they can help you, or search the threads, I'm sure there is already something about improving these beasties.

John
