Both bikes look good and they should be fine to learn trials. Their street oriented geo will make balancing easier. They should be fine for back wheel moves too, I havent tried any of the two, but from what Ive seen and according to its geo, it will be alright. Dedicated trials bikes will have a geo that makes then easier to manouver on the back but with these two and the right technique you should be able to do almost any move.

If you want a bike in a hurry get the CZAR. If you dont mind waiting go with the inspired (it says delivery 15th of Feb). I also I reckon the Inspired will hold its value better over time, so if treated right, you will be able to sell it much easier at a better price.

Both sellers are pretty good. I ve bought from them and they have been great!

Any newer rider no matter how good at other biking should get a good used bike, it will get beaten, it's trials. I suggest checking in the for sale section for stuff that might suite your needs, maybe even buying parts here and there to make a better bike for the money.

Should've put this in the original message...

I can't find any complete bikes, except these...

http://trialspads.com/store/bikes/24-bikes/inspired-fourplay-pro.html

Which should I start with???

I'm an experienced mountain biker, and want to get into Observed Trials riding! I NEED HELP!

I want smaller rims for maneuverability, but I want the best "complete" I can afford... Any suggestions????

Spring is around the corner, and I need to ride!!!
I live in Frederick, Md., so Baltimore, D.C., P.A., and Virginia, are all within driving distance. Anyone know of a bike shop that I can go and take a test ride???

Hey, Ive been ridding for 12 years, and my bike gets beaten, so should I also buy used :wiggle:....

A second hand bike, unless its a pristine one, in not the way to go. Like he said, trials bike get beaten, so you might find your self with a craked frame, mooshy brakes...etc..Look for good seconds, like REALLY good seconds, there are some. If not go with the Inspired, or like someone else said, try wheristheseat...
