Old Rider/New Bike - Help with identifying bike

8 posts in this topic

Hey everyone! 
I'm voidy, I used to ride a giant team trials bike about 14/15 years ago. A lot has changed since then. I've been looking to get a new bike and found an echo for sale, but I don't know anything about this bike. It feels like a pretty good deal, but it could be a really old version. Any help identifying this bike would be greatly appreciated, any tips when asking about it even more so. It's advertised as an echo pure, seems to have maggies on the front and back. It's being offered for around 240GBP or 260EUR. Would love to know what year it's from, what it's worth, if it's worth getting at all.
Thanks again, love the forum!

do you have a full spec? that wheelset is gorgeous! doesn't look bad for the money, possibly a bit to dear considering what you can get for under £400 if you shop around but this will have geo that won't feel a million miles from what your used to. look at an inspired too if you can cause they'll be similar to what you used to ride. that doesn't look half bad

I would love to shop around but I'm in sweden atm, up the north at that, so I don't think there is a trials bike within 100 miles of me haha.
Dude doesn't really know what it is, he bought it second hand for training. I'm asking for more pictures so we can maybe try and figure it out. It has Zoo! handlebars and I think those are hs33 levers from 2005-2010 somewhere there. He thinks it's a 2004 echo pure, I honestly have no clue. I will get more pictures this evening.

it's a 2004 onwards Echo pure, I had one and it was one of my favourite bikes I ever had! I'd haggle a bit on the price due to the age but it should ride pretty well for the price, just budget in for any future replacements as older parts will have some degree of fatigue
