    hey everyone im gettin a trials bike soon. what frame is good for £500/$915?

    i been lookin at the curtis frames (www.curtisbikes.co.uk) and the cove stiffee SL which is less trials specific. (http://www.covebike.com/article.php?itm=33)

    And what type of components should i get? rear disk or hs33, forks, rear mech etc

    what kind of riding do you do?

    you can get one of the best frames, the koxx levelboss for prolly 425 pounds?? magura on the back, disc on the front..any rigid fork that will accept disc is good, any road derailler i good, chris king hub or white industries ffw is a must... just about any crank is good, but middleburns are like dicks over there, every one who rides owns one.

    that is a good trials specific bike i guess... but then again, i have no idea what yo uwant, and if you're looking at hte cove stiffie, you probably want a seat and a suspension fork.. :?

    thanx for eply

    yea i definately want suspension, always used it and id prefer to have it on a bike where ill be dropping off high things :)

    and want seat cuz i dont want bike for 100% trials. forgot to mention i want an all roundish bike, but mostly trials.

    trials riding...dunno wat sorta ridin i do...street trials and in skateparks and stuff...

    Umm....korny, but if you want an all rounder, get a Norco. Yeah, not exactly what everybody is using, but if you're doing skateparks, etc. A Norco Moment or maybe the new PX Ghost as they'll prolly be straight with a suspension fork.....

    You could keep your eyes open for one of the Planet X Jack Flash frames on sale. It seems they're close'n them out. Nice all around with an 80 mm fork.
