    Trials Newbie
  1. Hello, guys! I heard that Arcade 2014 was not the best frame (high probability of cracking near seat tube). Is it truth? Is it worth - buying used one now or it's better to save for a new one? And how do you think, is it a nice price ( 700 pounds ) for this bike?
  2. If we are talking about cheap shimano setup, what's better ZEE(used) or SLX/XT/XTR (used)? Because I see them for same price from time to time.
  3. Obviously yes. Seems like the copy of 4play 2011-2013 with some changes.
  4. Wow, didn't know that. It seems then that MT5>MT7 .
  5. Thanks a lot! What can you say about braided hoses? Overkill or necessity in trials? I never broke any kind of hoses, but at the same time I don't care about weight, so I can't decide.. And should I change pads in trialzones right after buying it? Also is there any difference between V2 and TRIALZONE? And what difference between TRIALZONE and Tech3 levers?
  6. It would be nice to have some info about budget and expensive brakes, suitable for trials/street-trials. Avid? Magura? Hope? Shimano? I need a pair of brakes I can rely on. And as far as I know - I would be forced to change pads for trialsy use? Form my experience I love Hopes for build quality and bombproof design, but I was never able to achieve saint 810-like braking power with them...
  7. About this bike Everything is perfect in this bike, except of few things: 1) Bars. Inspired Arcade are really much better. Already ordered. 2) Brakes absolutely doesn't brake. Is it OK for this hayes? They are almost brand new. I cleaned rotors and pads with isopropanol and still braking power is worse than some cheap alivio/mechanic disc brakes. I cant even block my front wheel. What can I buy to replace them? Or maybe I should try another pads/rotors, because it's the most important part of brakes. 3) Octane One hub has too few engagement points. So, I guess there are nothing better than new HOPE hub? 4) What pedals would be better (safe/reliable) EXUSTAR PB525 or it's OK to use that noname Chinese nylon ones (afraid of axle snap)? 5) Front HUB. It's that old CZAR one, with strange axle, is it OK to use it? Any cons of that hub? 6) RIMS: fireeye excelerant. Is it something Chinese? Anyone know something about them? 7) Hussfelt cranks are OK, not too heavy? 8) Any sense of changing headset to HOPE? 9) Don't know what to do with that ZEE rear derailleur, I 100% do not want extra cable from rear to bars and don't need fast switching of gears. Maybe it would be a good idea to leave 2 sprockets? 16 for trialsy moves and 12 for streety ones and moving between spots? 2 sprockets + no shifter and no cables, just manual adjust between 2?
  8. So, I've got that for 380 pounds, I'm not an expert, but it seems like it was almost unused. What year frameset is, 2011? Also give me some advice, please, what should I change?
  9. Does they have FULL ARMOR SET (with helmet) for trials? I need one!
  10. WHY they keep producing and selling THIS? I'm using some nylon pedals and my shins are very grateful to me. It's so sad that I didn't know about nylon pedals before.
  11. Oh, it's that Spanish sociologist Santyago de Aener! ¡Bellísimo! Printed that post and put it into frame.
  12. Hello, folks! I hope I'm mistaken, but it seems like trials/street-trials scene is fading. Even few years ago it was OK to ride on your own, but now it seems like there are even fewer riders and even activity on the forums (especially WTS/WTB) are going down. It's not a whining, I already accepted that years ago and will keep riding anyway because I love it, but.. what do you think about it?
  13. Hello, guys! I'm looking for a new bars after TT HR. What would be better, considering the price: Inspired = £86, DaBomb = £32. Inspired Arcade: - 7050-T6 - Upsweep: 4° - Backsweep: 9° - Total rise : 102mm - Width: 730mm - Weight: 368g DaBomb Tactic: - AL6061 - Upsweep: 9° - Backsweep: 5° - Bar rise: 76.2mm - Width: 730mm - Weight: 393g
  14. Looks sweet. Does it feels different from old (2011-2013) 4play geo?
