  1. Any one know this? I mean the ones with the jungle/bones graphics as for sale by @Herbertlemon102
  2. EX721s here: https://www.westbrookcycles.co.uk/mavic-ex721-mountain-bike-rim-anodised-black-p191586/s221656?gclid=CjwKEAjwkq7GBRDun9iu2JjyhmsSJADHCD_HP6PSgdAFqSVlsGB81frCy7EydkTFw9qPBWyqmwonxBoCOYvw_wcB although, what is wrong with your current set up?
  3. yesss! just off to ebay to hunt down a small zaskar, BRB
  4. Not my bike here but does anyone remember the sunn trials bike? Ed tongue was riding it before the pashley was born, there is an issue of mbuk with him doing an endo on the front and looking down at the camera, great intro article on the pashley in that one, I wish I could find a copy on the plus side, I have a sunn trials frame hanging up in my man cave
  5. Love it. Here is my pashley from many moons ago (early 2000) I'd love to know where it is now... Its what I'm riding in my little profile picture on here
  6. Haha yeah it's a bit different eh!! lets get weird! I think at some point maybe a more compy frame might be on the shopping list as and when I get better- but for now, this is how it stands. Marmite.
  7. Then this pops up in Instagram, FFS, can't please em all
  8. I'm yet to ride it! Just picked it up yesterday and it was hoofing down with rain, shame I couldn't get out today, hopefully will be able to give it a run before the weekend
  9. Haha yeah I had it ready to go on, not sure if I prefer the selle italia, I guess the inspired seat will be a bit more hard wearing... I literally just picked it up yesterday, Ben at trials addict sorted most of the bits for me, although the frame and seat came from tarty if anyone was interested it's a 120 stem and low rise bars
  10. Hey folks ive had this on and off for a year or so now, it had a little holiday with @Dan Jones for a few months but it's back where it belongs now and I'm pretty happy with how it looks. ...now this isn't your typical inspired build, no pro 4, no spank rims, no arcade bars....no disc brakes, I'm an old git who loves Magura all round, seats on bikes and chainspotting .... As for modern bikes go, the hex is the most similar geo I could find to older bikes but I've gone for a more trials set up rather than streety. I have this crazy idea that maybe when my son is a bit older than 18 months and we've got the next kiddie out the way I might get out more than once a month!! Hmmmmm see the pics and don't be mean I guess I've tried a lot of things but just want a trials bike that looks cool and is a bit of an all rounder cheers
  11. There is one on eBay at the moment...
  12. Sorry this isn't trials specific chat, but is there any way I can change my user name on here? Mines a bit silly
  13. Brilliant! That's about as good as me these days (on a proper trials bike)
  14. Thanks for the info... Was that an expensive process? The reason I'm asking is I'm toying with the idea of getting one of these frames at some point and a hope hub would be awesome...
  15. Very cool indeed, is the rear hub spacing 135mm or 116mm? If 116 then how did you get the hope hub in there? If you've done some sort of hub modification, please tell!
