I have been wanting a trials bike for some time now but can't for the life of me find any 24" frame/forks second hand. I actually work in a bike shop so getting a complete trials bike is not a problem, however the brand I have access to is Onza and for some reason the distributor just stopped selling frames (wtf?) and you can only buy complete bikes. I have yet to use my Hope staff voucher so I want to avoid buying a whole bike, since I can get a nice build for less money than literally anything retail on the market.
Does anyone have good resources for buying used frames? I have tried Gumtree and even on here but not a whole lot exists. It seems crazy that a new Onza Zoot (full build) goes for £400, that's an awful lot to strip down and spare bin all the low end parts.
Thanks for the replies. I'm a TT fanboy, now I've got to get three of those levers... is the carthy one just big daddy pimping ? $$$
How much weight would the splitter add- those little barbs weigh nothing... offset it by getting ti bolts everywhere ? I've ridden whatever works parts for 20 years, and want my two bikes to be full pimping now... why not, I can't ride 3 hours every day like I used to, i work too much... so I can buy fancier parts? Not sure it makes sense for happiness but such is life.
