I'm looking at getting a Giant STP 2. It's 759 Cdn. I doubt you'll find one that cheap. The cheapest full on trials bike that I can think of is the Norco Evolve. It can be bought for around 900 cdn.

Yea, I read through your thread, it doesn't seem like there's too many options out there. I'll keep looking.

You might be able to build one up that cheap if you take advantage of some used parts and bargains. Maybe not a really good trials-specific frame for that price, but maybe something about as good as the STP frame would be

Norco evolve sucks so bad it's incredible.

Are you looking for mod trials or street?

I know 2 people that own Norco Evolve's, they don't know eachother, and live in completely different provinces, THEY LOVE THEIR BIKE'S. What do you find bad about them?
