Mark Barnes also did a recent article on rejuvenating rear suspension, featuring his Montesa two-stroke. And the most recent issue of Motorcycle consumer News had a review of his recent trip to the Trials Training Center.

Nice article. Leaving RYP out of the web resources seems like a weird oversight though.

Appears as though even Trials is not exempt from politics.

Trials In Sweden

I'm sold on trials as a Dad with a few kids I reckon trials is the right way into tecnique and balance for riding. HOWEVER in Sweden its bloody imposssible to find a trials bike to buy! I don't have the budget to buy a new one that we are going to thrash while learning (I'm after 80cc) and no one seems to sell their old trialbikes. Any ideas?

Can you get and have you considered the OSETs? maybe not the best but better than nothing... good luck.

I also live in sweden, and i managed to find a decent used bike for myself(check blocket, and websites for local clubs), and i bought a 36v -16" OSET for my kids, still i might not recommend the 36v for kids with no experience since the throttle control is a bit twitchy, i have heard that it is better with the 24v version.

Lycka till ;)

Do the OSET's batteries die after a while?

All batteries have a limited life. A company called Earth X makes a replacement battery set up for the OSETs. Here's what they say about their 24V kit:

Quote:
Our batteries are an exceptional value given the fact they can last four times longer than a lead-acid battery. Our batteries are rated for 4,000 charge cycles, versus 500 charge cycles for the OEM lead acid batteries.
The lithium batteries are not cheap, but they make a significant weight savings in an already very light machine. Run time and recharge time are still issues around which you have to work.

Thanks for the reply! I think I'll stick to what I know with old fashioned fossil fuel as a power source though the concept is a good one.

-Lets hope the Vikings turn it around or die in the attempt as there namesakes did!

A good friend will take you trail riding, an ADV friend will double back and say, "how did you get down there?"

I think I may have posted in another thread about the future of the sport, saying something to the effect that I love riding my trials bike but wasn't concerned with "Trials" as a sport or competition or whatever.

Well...that's toast.

I went to the 3D Trials Club season opener. I rode from section to section on killer single track through woods and watched (I was the only idiot doing so, too. That was a clue.). I met great people who all offered great advice. I had signage explained to me. I joined the club. I WILL be entering the next event.

Yep...just tie that hose around my arm and find a good vein. I'm in!
