Mountain Biking - Trials bike - $Price$ and Review
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Ahh, I may be back in the bike market for a trials bike.. I haven't done any research on them as of yet, so I figured I'd ask you guys. What are some of the better models and brands as I know nothing about them. Also what am I looking at (money wise) when purchasing one of these toys. I have only seen one BS in my area that sells them so most likely I would be purchasing it over the net. All the help I can get would... well be helpful..
I've also looked into a GIant AC1 (which isn't trials) because it is more of a hard hitting bike... but... :( I don't have that kind of cash right now. If I could get a used one that would be wonderful.

For a good source of Trials products, go to www.webcyclery.com they do a lot of Trials Products, and could definately steer you in the right direction.
Everything you wanted to know about trials but were afraid to ask. (http://www.trials-online.com/trials_faq.html)
Right on. Thx for the links. :D

A firend of mine bought a monty a while ago for around 350. they seem to be a good brand. He has messed up more drops then I can recall (It was his first attempt at trials after a trek 4500...) and it seems to be in fine shape. It has a cromoly frame, though, so it is around 25-26 pounds.
By the sound of it, I think Wait is looking for a stock bike. A mod bike is not without its advantages (in fact, they're quite numerous). However, they're good for little else besides trials. Most people I know go with a stock bike they can use for other things along with trials.
