Yeah... there are my other two bikes...Anyone who buys one xc bike from a local shop has spent more than anyone could spend on trials.
Case in point... thats around $2400... Last season ALONE for me, koxx lb 1100 frame, koxx lb long mod frame, planet x zebdi full bike, monty x-lite full bike. Parts- 2 pair rf lp's, 50+ tubes, 3 michelin rear, 3 front, try-all fixed hub/rear rim whole wheel built up- stem - bar, monty bulge bar, vp pedals, 2 hs 33 rear, avid front disc, hayes mag disc, lots of grips...the list goes on and on. Granted I pay cost ($65 for a mich tire ? :ugh: ) but it makes your 9 years of spending look like pocket changeZyzzyx said:$100 sometime in '95 for a well used Haro Response mod bike
$800 in early '99 for a used trials set-up Santa Cruz Chameleon, from Aaron Lutze via the trials email list.
~$50 - Plazmatic CRV pads, Chameleon
$800 in March '03 for a used (but nearly new) Megamo Radical
~$50 - generic rear wheel for the Chameleon to keep it going for urban cruising and wheelie practice
~$100 - grips, disc rotor, chain, front tire for Megamo
$65 - Michelin rear tire, Megamo
~$400 - TryAll cranks, bashring, BB, W.I. trials freewheel, brake pads, and stuff, for the Megamo (from Graham)
