Re: Hiiiiiii, from BALI-Indonesia

I tell you what aquira, if there was a prize for most popular trials rider I think you would win. But I think you would also win dedicated trials enthusiast award also. Don't get me wrong, I love trials, but if I had to go through the efort you have been through, I don't know if I would be riding tr...

Re: Beta brakes

I agree with other posters. If this is the only fault, it's an easy fix. 1. To bleed the brakes. The way I do it is to attach a peice ( 30cm long) of clear pipe to the bleed nipple ( point it upward). check the resoviour is fullish. then bleed the system by ( preferably two people ) aplying a slow p...

I always felt that you could have a much more acurate feel of when the...

Re: Trials Tales No 12

I think the bit on kickstart I enjoyed best was when they paired up a pro rider with a ten year old. I t just goes to show the randomness of trials because I remember many times the youngster getting better times than his partner. Ah the good old days, I was a ten year old myself, not a care in the ...

Re: Road Rego on a Trials Bike?

Where I live I think the cops are a bit more leniant( ? ) I have stopped and had a chat to them about an unrelated issue, as an afterthought they said where are you going on that, when I said into the next field he was fine with that. Just think about the times you have seen fork lifts, tractors, qu...

Re: Trials Tales No 12

Re: Road Rego on a Trials Bike?

I think another issue is how bad trials bikes are at covering distance, unecanomical, slow, uncomfortable, unreliable( over a larcge distance). I have a friend ( not me I should add ) that rides on the road for short distances and does not worry about getting caught. He or she thinks it is to hard t...

Re: Trials Tales No 12

Just because someone is a farmer does not mean they don't have trials aspirations. Even if it is a flat sugar cane farm. Just my opinion.
