    Hey guys I was sent here from a guy over at biketrials.com because I am new and apparently one of their mods is a little out there and tries to sell tank bikes even though they break alot. I will leave his name not said since he doesnt want to get banned over there. Anyway I am here because I want to learn trials, i watched it at motorama if you want to know more about me ask. I raced bmx sponsored for 2 years, i am 6'5" and 250 lbs but the problem is i am only 16 17 next month and work for minimal wage, pay for car insurance and cell phone bill and gas, what kinda bike should i get that would still be cheap. I was looking at the tank 26" but also heard some bad stuff about them but they are only 250 shipped.. Any help would be appreciated.

    look in to financing a bike. you'll probably need to have your parents co-sign for you, but that way you'll have some time to pay it off. im guessing that if you were at motorama, then you live in the northeast? if so, try to contact the guys at mt perk cycles. they all ride and are really cool. they'll help you out.

    as elan said, try to stay away from the tank bikes. its the equivelent of a walmart trials bike.

    Go to the buy/sell forum of this site. Buy Bills Planet X. Build it up from there.

    I'm sponsored too. My company pays me fuckloads of cash, but could give a shit less if I ride a goddamn bike. :werd:

    Okay, now I know what happened to your ride. I can barely keep up with you in these forums.
