I hope to buy a dedicated trials frame soon, as my 16" Aggressor is doing hell on.."me"..Is the PX Zebdi or Zoo Boa worth the money (I need something cheap) Or should I save up for a Cheat Code or Zoo Pitbull? (The highest amount of money I can spend)
Thanks..

cheat code and pitbul are probably the last resort... zoo boa looks like a decent buy, pxi s okay i suppose, or you can waste your time looking for a used LB, Echo Pure, somthing like that.

I'd get an echo pure 1080 if I were you..if you like longer bieks that is. You could find a cheap PX used somewhere, but it wont be great for UCI riding if you like that. Great for street tho.

If you're looking for inexpensive, I suppose it's possible I could be selling my zebdi mkIII frame soon, though I have to see what I can get a koxx frame for.

px is a decent all around frame id say, and they are selling used for a damn good price... if you want a really nice bike though, the echo pure costs the same as the pitbul, and is definately actually worth the money. short or long ,i hae never heard of one breaking, if thats any issue with you or not... dependsing on your height, 1080 is the place to be too. IMO.

dont get a pitbull, those are gay....

had a ride on one (with a 105x5 stem) and my god, i dont know wtf was wrong but it felt about two feet shorter than it actually is...

also, i am on an echo pure 1060 and it feels amazing... its just borrowed though, i'm getting the 1080 soon enough :bigthumb: i highly reccommend.

Yea I think they need to lower the bb 5mm, making it +5mm, and extending the front triangle to give a 1085mm WB. Oh yea, and give it strong disc compatability.

For stating trials, I hear the Zebdi is the choice.

Its okay. I bought mine because I didn't know anything and a LBS had it built up for sale. 800 total. I figured that was cheap if I didn't like the sport.

Its good for learning, but I think there are other/better frames out there. Its relatively bomb proof, and you bang the hell out of it (you will when you start). Otherwise, you (like me) start building up a great component set and all you have to do later is change frames.

I'd go with a longer bike as well. IMHO. Andrew is correct, after riding various things, I like the Koxx.

buy matts zebdi for 200, i think it comes with a bb lol, dont worry about it being a POS, (piece of ****) but it would be good because he would be the last person to screw you over, man you cant beat 200 shipped, im sure he would throw in some crap (bb) haha :joshers:

yea but i dont really have the money for one. im kinda narrowing this whole thing down to a zoo boa, echo urban or px zebdi.

so here is a new question-which of these (the frames mentioned above) is best for all around type riding? (meaning i ride mostly urban but am starting to ride natural)
