Hey all I am a poor bastard...
And would reallyl like to start riding.. I see some old bikes on e-bay that are trials bikes that I could just buy.. But they are hella old like 10 years or more old.. Will they just suck or what... They just look like bmx bikes with small cranks...
Would I just be wasting my money on getting one of these p.o.s's or what?

yes even a 3 yr old bike would suck.Get a zoo peeranna like Elan the pirate and sail the high seas of trialsdum.Put sum shite used parts on it and slowly upgrade till you have an XTP like Elan.

But you can nevar be as kool as him....

Ya' I don't want some p.o.s.
That would just piss me off and I may never get around to getting another one fixed up...

tank mod bike is something to consider, but if you've got cash go for a cheapo zoo! until you get better and can afford something nice.

hey... my suggestion is save your money until you can afford an echo team. i started off with a zoo lynx because i didnt want to spend a ton of money and also because i didnt know that much about trials( i was just getting into it). i rode my lynx for about a year then i saw the echo team... i saved my money and bought an echo team short(frame only) and put all my lynx parts on it. i am currently working on upgrading all my parts but if i would have known how much better then echo team and koxx mods were... i would have never wasted the money on the piece of shit zoo. my friend has a lynx and i can barley even ride it. if i were you i would save until you can buy the echo team and you will be fine.
