    I find that hard to believe sir!
    My money pits:

    Cannondale Jekyll 500 with Avid Mechs and Sun DS2 rims with XT disc hubs.

    Cannondale F900 with SRAM XO shifters/derailler, Mavic X3.1 tubeless wheels, Avid Mechs, Race Face Next LP cranks, Time ATAC pedals, SRAM levers.

    Yes. Well, I don't do trials very well, even on a trials bike. There are those that do, I've seen some people who can do amazing things in trials competitions on a mtn bike. There is no questions that a pure trials bike is better but still you can do a lot of the manuevers on any bike. Do a search for bicycle trials and you can come up with lots of good links.

    In AR at some of the series mtn bike races they now do the xc event, a dh event, and a trials competition. I've never entered the trials but I always watch, it's a brutal sport and it amazes me what some of those people can do...
