Getting Back In To Trials

21 posts in this topic

HI

I have been thinking about getting back into trials again for a while now and was wondering weather i should buy a secondhand bike to start with or just bite the bullet and get a new one?

whats a good bike to buy these days as the last bike i had was a ashton mk1?

could really do with as much fed back as possible.......

many thanx David :-)

Yeah, I think you should go with a diamondback. They dont look to bad and Sam Pilgrim is sponcered by them and hes a top rider. Just not really known on trials-forum much.

Anyway, just post and wait until you get validated mate and have a look around the For-Sale topic, some great bikes on there for very low prices.

His post was fine...

He put yea on the end and you asume he's a chav.

Jacks gone cock mode again...

New:

Onza Spyrogyra

Onza Hitman

Koxx Acidrop

Phase 1.2

Onza T-Rex if you can find one

Second hand:

For the amount of money you have your pretty limitless.

Anything Echo will take a beating

Same goes for the Zoo pitbull

If you want to save some weight and maybe go into competitions Koxx and monty and the way to go.

Echo Control

Zoo Pitbull

Monty 231 Kamel

Koxx hydrox

If you can find any of those with a reasonable spec then you should be set.

Your obviously going to get more for your money secondhand.

Look here for ideas.

So your saying go for a Diamondback, because Sam Pilgrim rides for them? As far as I know Sam isn't sponsored for Diamondback for his trials riding skills, if hbe has any. More his park/dirt skills.

Also, quoting Deano saying to edit the last bit of his post, whos gives a toss? He constructed a decent post there, worthy of validation.

He meant take it out, as there should be no selling/buying in NMC.

I'm sorry but the way I view that post its not selling or buying. Just a comment saying "If I find one for sale I will buy it"
