I'm buying a new trial bike!

I'm not sure where to post this, but I put it here . Anyway, I'm buying a new trial bike soon, and I was thinking about buying Univega RAM TR-626: https://www.univega.nu/2005/bike_ram_tr_626.htm
Do anyone got any experience with this bike? Or may suggest a similar 26" trial bike? And I got no experience what so ever with the magura hs11 brakes. Are they any good?
Thanks for all reply!

As a litigator, I am not familiar with "trial" bikes. Please advise.

Excuse me, I must prepare for an upcoming trail.

Oh, I thought you meant TT. Try the MTB forum...

trials peeps - the ability to cover the least amount of ground possible, in the maximum time, in the most awkward manner and never set a foot down.

...or I'm just jealous 'cos my bike handling skills are no where near as good.

anyway - try in searching mtb and singlespeed - they'll be able to help
