Black Beauty - 2011 Echo 24 (Afterlife)

1 post in this topic

Hey guys,

After a break from trials of more than 4 years I decided a few months back to get back into riding. 

Back in 2013 I purchased an Echo Trial 24 frame from Duncan Shaw. Needless to say the frame was in need of some love back then!:

The bike remained in this state and wasn't ridden until October last year where I slowly began a bit of a restoration to bring things more inline with the modern bikes. I was keen to tidy up the look of the bike up somewhat and so set about respraying the frame in Matt Black (Charlies Stores special!) and purchased a number of new bits such as tyres, wheels, bars, stem, brakes, cranks, freewheel and more.

This weekend I finally got round to the finishing touches and I am really happy with the result, the bike now looks and rides like it means business. Hard to believe the difference compared to when I first got it back in 2013! The only thing left to do will be to shorten the rear brake hose, but that hasn't bothered me too much in the few months I've been using it. The total weight of the bike comes in a shade over 7.9kg, which I'm really pleased with.

I'm now looking forward to warmer weather and longer days to get more practice and learning in.

I'll list a rough spec below the photos for those interested. 

Cheers - Lewis
