    I thought this was pretty funny. The BB is about 10mm below zero with a suspension fork and the rest of the geo is no better!! I don't know who would buy this.:nuts:

    Here it is---

    I am so sick of everyone complaining about trials style bikes that are not pure trials. This post has no more legitimacy than the retarded post about a no seatless bike manifesto. Just ride whatever you want, I would personally ride that bike before I would ride any echo. Its a god damn choice, let people choose you fascist.

    There is a difference here.

    I just brought up the topic for others to see this bike as many have not!! I gave my opinion of it please give yours.

    Well I agree that other no seat topic was stupid and should be deleted for wasting space.

    But i disagree when you say no one would buy this. Not everyone wants to ride a 1090 wheelbase no seated bike.

    If i lived on the coast and was ridin the shore and wanted a bike that i could flick around, but also had a seat and was more suited to actual trail riding i would buy it. Remember some people want a bike that does more than one style.

    Did you ever stop and think that possibly it isn't a trials bike? Hans is no longer a "trials" rider, so why would he make his signature bike a "trials" bike. Even with that geometry and setup he would whup 95% of the people on this forum in a comp. Try to have some respect and do some research before just blasting something.

    my first mountain bike was a tiny GT Zaskar, or is it Zascar, anyway, and it looks almost exactly like that. Except I think mine had like 24 inch wheels.

    Probably rides similar to my bike (PX JFU)... I like the way my bike rides, but then again I've never owned anything more trials specific. I often wonder if or how much its holding me back.. I'm only really interested in pure trials riding, so hopefully I'll break it and build up a rigid Tibo or something. Either way I've learned a shitload on this bike, still love it and I bet that Hans bike would be fun too

    Mine is set up almost identical to yours b-boy, aside from the fork. It is holding you back a shit-ton for trials...but is that something you care about? My ideal trials bike can't manual for shit.

    Yah, trials is what I care about, I dont care for the lenosky-type style too much. I guess manualling is the only street'ish thing I like doing.. Ah well, next bike will be a step closer to pure trials, see how that goes. PS - You've got one of these just for street I assume? cause I remember you saying you're on a Pure aswell
