if your buying a ska new, you could get a rad bike second hand, which i'd recommend cause the ska is functioning but awful, you want fancy brakes and a good freewheel off the bat or you'll be even more put off by the steep learning curve.

I’d agree with ogre there. Get yourself a nice second hand bike for the same amount of money. That will feel better and will last you longer as well. People on this forum are quite genuine and I can’t imagine anybody selling you broken parts either.

Or, as people say - buy cheap, buy twice :)

Wise words indeed 

I just got my first trials bike a couple of weeks ago and opted for a 2nd hand bike over new. Better all round parts for less than the price of a brand new lesser quality bike plus it came with a spare tyre and front brake. Until I manage to actually aquire some trials skills I'll just stick with preowned and bash the crap out of it
