Help appreciated on 24" choice

18 posts in this topic

Going from a GU 26" that I could never quite get comfortable on. Maybe the geometry isn't suited for a beginner like me. Looking to change to a Street trials 24". Considering an Ozonys Styl, a Because or Czar. Marino I have seen but not familiar. Would consider an Inspired too if the price and condition was right. Looking to spend 1200 USD or less, give or take. Any tips on choice appreciated.

Marino doesn't do full builds (yet) but if you're in the States his postage times are very quick and he even has frames in stock! Feel free to ask any questions here or on my FB :)

The TMS boy contacted me couple of years ago asking my opinion on his frames and how improvements could be made.

Do I ride for you mate?

No point bitching, who cares. They're all good frames just personal preference. 

 

Jason's just throwing out another option, I rode for Marino and didn't get along with them. All personal preference but do I say his frames look shit? No. Could I? Yes. 

 

In fairness Boni Toe (Great name by the way) you need to be looking into the geo's of these more and deciding on one that best suits you. Small difference's I know but makes a huge impact in the long run. Obviously there's loads of edits from the inspired team on all different frames in the range. 

There's some really cool videos of John Shrewsbury and Ross (get creative one being a favourite of mine) on these Marino's which show them off really well also. Link: https://vimeo.com/75204013

 

And a self plug: https://vimeo.com/229770829 There's a small section of me on a Silex here at 3:10.

Ended up with a well used Arcade but for 800 USD shipped I thought it was a fair deal.
