    Trials Forum?

    I've noticed that there is no trials specific forum on this site. There also seems to be a general lack of trials discussion in the MTB section. Is this just a matter of users prefering other forms of biking? Do you have any suggestions of good sites/forums for begining trials riders?

    I think you will find a bit of discussion about trials here. But for the most part it is sooo skill specific you really need to find a forum dedicated to it. Here are some sites

    http://www.biketrials.com/
    http://www.trialsworks.co.uk
    http://rl.fireplug.net/islandtrials/site/
    http://www.trials-online.com/

    Those are some of my favorite. Hope they help. Maybe we should make the post know to Joe. He could make a subsection for trials stuff.

    Thanks for the sites to check out. I already knew about BikeTrials.com, but the others should be worth a look.

    Is that Geodude?

    Just a little plug for www.trials-online.com since it is my two sons that run that site. There is a good international forum and a ton of video clips for demonstration of various skills. Many of the videos are my youngest son and some of the others are local pros and very good amateurs in the Ohio, USA area.

    Enjoy!

    Well congrats to them. That is the best trials site on the web. While I still blow ass that site helped me at least not blow ass as bad

    trials-online has a very active and helpful forum. There are lots of people on there that are very willing to help out, and give tips and advice. Feel free to stop by and read through the many many posts (20,000 I think right now). Somebody will most certainly have had similar problems, and the solutions!
