I use downhill mtb knee/shin pads everytime i ride now(due to bad leg) and whey work great, nice and light and fit into boots. As for upper body, nothing in trials but wear an alpinestars pressure suit for stuntriding, its pretty comfy when you get it adjusted to fit right. Doesn't restrict too much...

Re: Insurance for trials bikes

Re: Insurance for trials bikes

Ive got mine covered for full comp(except when competing) so if it falls off the trailer its covered! :oops:

Thats with Wesfarmers and cost bugger all, 100 bux or something like that.
Part of a policy with the house, shed and all the other bikes too tho.
