I raced xc for 10 years and followed the industry pretty closely, but I've learned far more about bikes since I joined the trials community. I think it's basically because there is no industry support for trials so we're still in the Wild West since the 90s. It sux if you're the kind of person who wants to go to a shop, have choices, buy a complete bike and be able to get it fixed at any shop. But if you're really a trials rider - no. 1 your micromanagement skills are off the chart, no. 2 you are capable of intense focus and determination to gain less than an inch, and no. 3 you're gay. Real trials is a very intimate brotherhood (especially in the US!).
