Hey. welcome to trials. Good purchase.  Bar and stem should make that feel pretty good for learning on.  A couple of basics first might be to check that it has a good chain on it, and make sure its adjusted properly to stop it sagging like that. That will slow down the engagement when you push on the pedals.  Half-link chains tend to stretch fairly quickly so a regular bmx chain is fine, or the kmc 610 and 710 are pretty damn good and reasonably priced.  Some soft sticky v pads will help you out a lot too. The standard freewheel may not have many engagements, and arent really strong, so that could be a worthy upgrade down the line.  lastly, check the cranks bolts before every ride. those older type square taper cranks can round off easily if they come a bit loose.  thats it.  have fun!
