    Hi. Seeing as I'm completely new at this, could anyone help me on a frame question. I'm looking for a European, preferably german, polish, austrian or belgian brand that makes good (not extremely expensive) trials frames. I'm in kind of a hurry... Any help is welcome. Thanks!

    BT, the only way to go!!

    Yep, the BT bikes RAVen 5.0 is an awesome ride. Very low standover height, good bb clearance without being too high, super short rear end, just a great all around package at a price that cannot be beat ($420.00 U.S dollars). I'd say try one out, I think you'll love it. Awesome color choices now too, good luck with your decision.

    Maybe Syntace......but they ARE quite expensive, so search for a 2002 model.

    define "not extremely expensive" koxx is sweet - from france. planet x is also sweet from UK, BT from poland i think. i still like koxx -- for most you dont get to sit down, but they are super sweet frames, tho most run for about 600+... your call i guess

    good luck!

    Yeah BT for sure, they feel sooo awesome on the back wheel! you could seriously go to sleep its so stable.
    Koxx are overpriced IMO
    Also BT has that custom graphic design option which fuckin rocks!
    Peace

    get a bt, and be done with it! strong, reasonable price, and short chainstays 375mm, 1080mm wheelbase, and magura, or v specific brake mounts. i just got mine, now just waiting to order my parts. it weighs about 4.25 pounds, but who gives a crap.
