    What is better for trial riding?

    Hi, I was just wondering what is better for trial riding. Single suspension or dual suspension? Any feedback would be great thanks!

    are you asking about Trials or Trail.

    I know it says trials, could be a typo.

    TRAIL riding is riding your bike on the trails. Mostly thought of as Cross country riding.
    TRIALS is a sturdier bike that people do all that fancy crap

    You have to master the skill, before you gomaking it easier lol.

    Really? Hadn't noticed. Might be easier, but not better.

    Edit: cheeto, you ninja'd me.
