Re: It's marketing time - your dream new trials bike!

Love the idea of the new OSSA having the exhaust pipe tucked pretty much out of sight. I seem to be able to burn my leg or scorch my riding pants on the darn exhaust pipes on all the models I've had so far. Electric start would be good? And decals that really are tough and don't fall off about when ...

Re: Feedback please for 09 Titles

To the Hellteam's take on this topic - hear, bloody hear! Why is it that we have a sport where very little money is involved, apparently carries a low profile and has a high participant to spectator/official ratio we can not get together and score each other? That way we can all particpate and who's...

Re: Beta Rev 50 - fan doesn't come on - test thermostat?

Hi Keith,

Reading this I recall having two dud thermostats on an '05 Rev 3 and a suggestion of a "bad batch". Yours is an '06, but it would pay to keep an eagle eye on it if at all suspect.

Cheers,
Greg

Re: Famous name in trials back making bikes again

They may be famous, But they sure could use a new graphic designer. That is horrendous.

Re: TopTrialTeam Beta EVO

NO doubt that is a very cool bike. Even with the slightly agricultural exhaust I'd be ecstatic to be seen on it.

What's the word on the EVO anyway.
Is it the revelation it's purported to be?
Any teething problems with such a new direction of design for Beta?

Re: Beta steering or steering in general

Hi Davo, I would've thought if you had steering head problems this would show up on just about any surface. For creekbeds a technique I was taught, which works well for me is to keep your eyes up and focus on your line between two points, not at what's at your feet. Keep your body centered over the ...
