If its TXT based parts bin bike, then far more reliable than the Pro's, which if they are used hard will need a complete rebuild after 6 months use!
However if you are new to trials look at either a 125 or 200cc bike, as this will be far easier to ride and mean much better results than if you choose to struggle with 250/280/300cc machines, which are much more suited to experienced riders.
In terms of reliability any of the Jap powered bikes will be much better than the Euros, most of which suffer from poor build quality and mechanical issues.
Its also worth remembering its a really good idea to try to master the basics of riding a trials bike, before going on to the trick riding stuff thats makes up the majority of present day instruction DVDs covering trials.
Thanks for the input!
