Avid jucy rear brake 

High roller 2ply rear 

Middleburn cranks with pro bash ring dmr v12 magnisum

Dmr dirt seat 

Unknow stem bar combo definitely need changing 

Unknown forks 

Shimano xt front v brake 

Mavic front rim Unknow hub 

High roller front single ply 

Sram derailleur

Bit of an update im finding it difficult to do even basic moves I find stuff a lot easier with front suspension is there any like trials specific front suspension forks or should I look for a set of dirt jump forks?? Sorry if these seem like really basic questions but I've really enjoyed watching trials and but never tried riding a trials bike maybe I'm missing the point of a trials bike lol sorry for the rambling

Close ups of the forks? They look like lower end trials forks. Dirt jump rigid forks will be much longer and heavier, they'll feel horrible as that frame is not meant for suspension length forks. There is no trials specific suspension fork as suspension is not what you want for trials. What do you find easier with front sus?
