Re: Importing late model secondhand competition bikes hurts everybody.

Trials is not in good shape and we can not afford more losses if we are going to keep our sport viable. I see nothing wrong with a dealer (or anyone for that matter) capitalizing on a market opportunity and trying to fill it, especially when that gap in the market could potentially lead to a cycle ...

Re: Newbie

Hey Vincent, Unfortunately the season is wrapping up and I would normally recommend visiting a few trials events to see what all the fuss is about. The NSW season starts again in around ~3 months. I would highly recommend a try before you buy and going to a trials school/academy is a great way to ge...

Re: How to start ?

A great place to start would be taking be participating in one of the Trials schools on offer:

Re: How much and what protection do you use (knees/elbow)

Both Fox & Shift have budget Knee / Shin guards that retail round the $30.00 mark. Fox also have a cheap Kids Knee / Shin guard that's quite slim & will fit nicely into the top of Trials boots & go under Nylons or Trials pants ok. Myself & both my sons have been using the Fox Kids (...

I would agree with wearing Enduro/MX boots on the bigger bikes, the trials boots provide very little protection for high speed and impact onto certain parts of the foot.

Re: Returning rider

It's not impossible but the height does leave your feet hanging very low to the ground. I have to be mindful not to snag my feet on uneven ground, rocks or stumps. Some brands of bike can be fitted with a long ride seat kit like this The guys over at thehellteam sell them too: http://www.thehellteam...

Re: Shirts Out, Why?

I use to be in the party of riders who wore the random Billabong T-Shirts to trials but moved to wearing a proper trials jersey and I must say it's so much more comfortable. The material breaths better, doesn't stay wet with sweat and also the sleeves keep the sun off my arms which helps with dehydr...
