  1. Thank you Adam
  2. So im building up an Alias 20.1 and want to run a 20" rear wheel with a 2.2ish tyre. Anyone know of any off the shelf wheels or do I need to go custon?
  3. Something Ive pondered for a long time, are hube freewheels considered stronger than front screw on or splined freewheels? Do number of engagement points equal more strength? Who makes the strongest front screw on or splined freewheel?
  4. So talking about front screw on style freewheels only, does less engagements make them stronger?
  5. Thank You. Sorry should have been more clear. When I say hub freewheels I mean like Hope or Chris king.
  6. Just watched an old video on Flipp on his Alias 20.1. How is he running a rear Hope hub? Anyone know?
  7. Thank you all so much, really helpful. This is why I love this place! I guess Ill just go with the freewheel on the front for ease.
  8. Hi I cant make my mind up on either an Echo trials 24" or pure 26'. I have ridden both and they are great, any advice would be a real help as i cant decide. Thanks
  9. hows the bike?
  10. Thanks for the feed back guys. Luke did you go back to the 26" echo, if so how are they different to ride? I only had a short hop around, the 24' felt like a pogo stick. Im only 5,8" and i dont want the 26" to feel to big.
  11. Anyone used the tryall rage 09 bars yet, what did you think? im thinking bof getting some but they aint cheap so woud love some feed back. thanks all
  12. v8's are nothing like mg1's shape wise. I just bought some mg1's from Merlin Cycles for £35 which is a right bobby dazler when you think they are the same as Try-alls and Trialtechs only much cheaper. My only issue is i bet the pins rip out quite easily seeing as magnesium is quite soft. They feel nice and big under foot
  13. Why is that, i was tempted by the trialtechs. Are the 09 rage bar the same rise as 08's does anyone know? Thanks for everyone taking the time to get back to me.
  14. Hi everyone please could i get your views on what bars i should get, Trial tech riser or Try-all rage riser. They will be going on an Inspired and im using a Trial tech forged stem. I am also thinking of ditching the stem for hope stem so any views on that. Thanks
  15. Hi everyone just thought you might like to see my new bike, just about to get back into trials. Big thanks to Dan Slyfield for building it, she is lovely to ride. If anyone wants a spec i will put it up. Hope you like.
  16. Just out of interest why does everyone think i need a shorter stem and riser bars? Im not really into bmx style trials i like the old school way of riding lots of natural. Ive got flat bars because i feel they give me more control but would i be better off with risers? Thanks for all the cool comments.
  17. Hello Jack how you doing long time no see. Glad things are going well on the trials scene for you, like the bike looks tasty. Ive just finished building an inspired up so i can start riding again, have a look its under "black beauty" just above this thred on bike pics. Dan Slyfield showed me a couple of your vids aand i was very imprssed, we should all sort a ride out some time im very keen to ride reading. Hope you are well mate
  18. I know im thinking of putting trialtech risers on it. Used to ride a monty 20" x-hydra and that had flat bars so i got them. When i used to ride years ago Azonic used to make wicked bars, does anyone know if they are still worth a look or should i stick to trials specific bars. Thanks for all the comments, cant wait for it to stop rainning so i can get out on it.
  19. nice bike mate, how did you get the booster to fit?
  20. like the bike mate, cant wait to build mine up. what is the back brake and whats it like?
  21. Has anyone used Echo sl brakes and what do you think of them. Im thinking of getting a set for the rear of my bike but not sure if i should just stick to Maguras. Thanks
  22. thanks mate
  23. Hello all im thinking about buying a Magura for the rear of my Inspired but i like the look of the Echo SL. Ive read a couple of reviews saying they leak a bit so would like some advice from anyone who has used them. Or should i Just stick with maguras. Thanks
  24. Just bought a 24" inspired frame and i love it but i need some advice on what folks to run. Does the length make much difference, im looking at 400mm or 410? I like the echo controls but they are hard to find and i like meta`s, can anyone help please? I only like curved, i dont want them to be to heavy and i want to run a 180 disc. Thanks
  25. Thanks guys for your advice,think im going to go for meta or trialtech. Has anyone used the meta`s, what are they like?
