Looking For A Suitable Bike....

Looking to get a Trials Bike (Look at previous posts for more info about me and what I want)

I just found this on eBay;


Is this any good for a beginner? Also, how much should I be looking to give for it?

Basically I am after a cheap but decent bike which I can learn on.

Oh I also like these 2: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Onza-Pro-20-Trails-Bike-2009-/120581100983?cmd=ViewItem&pt=UK_Bikes_GL&hash=item1c133195b7


http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Onza-Rip-20-inch-Trials-Bike-/270590579984?cmd=ViewItem&pt=UK_Bikes_GL&hash=item3f00749510 (Abit too expensive).

What would be the most suitable?


James :rolleyes:

if you have a budget of £200 buy the first one with money spare for a better freewheel and good rear brake pads and you will have a very nice first bike. so if you can get it for £130, you'd be sorted. since a reliable back brake and a freewheel with high reliable engagements are probably the most useful things to upgrade to. the geometry of the t pro is great!

I'd be a bit careful with the first one though as in the description he says he bought it off ebay about 2 months ago whereas he's only got 1 feedback from around 6 months ago for what looks to be a road frame.

Not saying he definately didn't get it off ebay in the first place as may just have not recieved feedback but worth asking about!

Guys what do you think of this one: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150454767073&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

I know it has ended but would it be suitable and how much would you value it at?


Could someone please let me know! I could really do with knowing by tonight!

BTW, it is a Onza Rip
