heya Ateam, just noticed this post in my monthly lurk around here.
I bought that exact same model brand new in 1997 from cosmo motors. $700 delivered I think it was.
It still hangs in my garage. Too bad it collected way more dust than scratches.

I was wondering what year it was. I remember Cosmo. I bought a
Ot Pi replica brand new from Gary Jackson who got it from
Billy Trainer who imported a few over (Irish dude). I bought it in
1987 for $600. Strait forks and came with vee's. Of course I still
have it and it has been ridden by many.






Here is another old school Monty I put together and sold it to Lineaway


Bought this when i got back into bike trials almost 4 years ago. Still
have it but lives in Kentucky. Planet X Zebdi, no longer made from Australia.



Bought this for my nephews wife and just because it is a cool ass Monty.


There are a few more Monty's, but not on my hosting web site.

a bunch of sweet old bikes there.
The first trialsin bike I got to play around on was just like that 1st one with the triple tree forks, but it was red, not the fancy chrome version.

Hey guys and gals
I was thinking about getting a trials bicycle and saw this on Amazon.
http://www.amazon.com/Yaabaa-Trials-.../dp/B007Y5FZQ8

Is this a decent deal/brand?
couldn't find too much info on the net

Thanks

Great starter bike. Sold through a local China connection. May need to replace a few components but you likely would anyway. Lets us know what you do.

I have this old skewl monty, I bought for the son a few years back... this is the photo from the guy I bought it from, they broke the white plastic seat off of it, replaced with a black one for now. it had the original hydraulic brakes, and they broke a lever off, so I couldnt ever find a stock lever, so now the rear brake was upgraded to a newer style from Magura? that has adjustable lever on that side.

I need to make me a bleed kit. so who is that guy on this board that fixes up these old bikes, I really want to talk to him about parts? thanks.

AteamNM, are you one I could get information from about Magura brakes? and Ill get more recent pictures tonight (if I dont forget) lol... I need the little either plastic or brass compression "ferrel?" When they fall off the bike, they rip the hoses loose from brakes or levers, so right now I removed it from "available to ride" status, becuase trying to get the brakes pumped up if I even had the ferrels, is a beyotch...

I tbought mine was about 84 era, has non round downtube to pedals, if you cannot tel from pictures... if that helps decide what year it might be?

thanks to all and anyone for any help or information.

So very sorry.

You can buy the Magurra bleed kit, about $25 bucks that will have all the basic olives, ferrules, etc. I recommend buying this kit. You can also contact Brycer and send him your brakes. Brycer will bleed and service them to incredible condition. Then buy good pads like TNN pads or Heatsink pads. You can also just dive into it after reading this and watching a few videos, do the Google - bleeding hydraulic bicycle brakes.

Brycer add here and FWIW I have a set of 2006 Olympic model Maggies on rear. I have TNN backings and TNN pads.

PAYMENT AND SHIPPING:
Paypal works best for me, but money orders are also ok. My paypal address is: uniflasher@hotmail.com. Shipping will be $8 for USPS Priority Mail shipping in the US (2-3 days) and $13 for first class shipping to Canada (7-9 days). I ship the day after I receive funds.

BLEEDING / TESTING:
Bleeding hydraulic brakes is messy and no fun - and so you won’t have to deal with fluid leaks, after I assemble and bleed them with fresh Magura blue blood, I test them all for leaks by putting the wheel cylinders into a custom test jig that I made. There, I’ll cycle the brake pistons under full power to check for proper function and leaks without having to bolt them up to a unicycle frame.

MORE BRAKES AND PARTS:
E-mail me if you want something different or digital pictures of something in particular. I also have a good selection of less expensive nice used HS33 and HS22 brakes.

BTW, I also have these available separately:

* New Magura four bolt mounts with stainless hardware are $15/per wheel for used and $25/per wheel for new
* Magura rim brake bleed kits are $22
* Other parts and supplies for Magura rim brakes

Cheers,

Vee's versus hydro. I have installed vees on my old school Monty. Easy to repair in the field and newbies can beat the hell out of vees.
