Worst production trial bikes thread...

65 posts in this topic

So after the recent(ish) best looking trials bike threads what do people think is the worst.

The only rule being it has to be a model of bike that was or still is in production and available to buy anywhere in the world with the exception of prototype frames that lead into the design of a production model (no hand made ones pretty much). Expecting some bike history here guys!

I kind of like Syrogyras, I think they're pretty much t-raptors or something.

I also kind of liked this thing -

I like your way of thinking, Knowing that someone thinks a bike you like is ming maybe a bike you like a little more is even worse? :giggle:

The bike I had was like 18 Kg. That frame is brutal, steel and strong.

The geo was in retro perspective certainly interesting.. but I spent many hours on that bike :)

Edit: this is not mine it is one that I found on google

Always hated the look of Sky2/3/Raijin frames

Any stock frame with a super high bb just looks wrong to me, think it has something to do with the down and top tubes being pretty much parallel to each other. Can be said for most frames now though i suppose

Zhi ZM3 however wins it for me

this! f*cking awful. my mate designed a frame and pretty sure he showed the guys at mission with the idea of getting something into production and and after that they came out with this half assed design.I've got a proto type of the 26" Version of the original design and it is so much better than the design they ended up with

Anything Saracen - EVER.

(Apart from maybe the newer style MAD frames which look like small mtb frames - they're ok)

Only due to the paint job. The frames themselves look quite smart I think
