Saw this earlier today! Finally a decent video from him, especially since there isn't just 145 degree fisheeye clips in it!

WTB Used Trials Bicycle

Not knowing squat about these, other than looks like a lot of cash for $50.00 worth of metal
Well looking for a used one for my son, He is about 5,10" 120, so what ever frame that would be correct.
If anyone has a bike in good shape, and a price I hope is a good deal, please hit me up.
Also if you would be able to ship ?
Thanks All

Have a look at ObservedTrials Net. The beginner's area covers a lot of frequently asked questions and the for sale board may have something that suits your requirements (once you've figured out what they are). You have to think first about what kind of riding your son will want to do (street/urban, natural/traditional, etc) and then decide which kind of bike (20", 24", 26"). The FAQ at OTN should help you in the right direction.

http://www.observedtrials.net/vb/forumdisplay.php?f=21

You do not have to spend upwards of $800 on a trials bike. IIRC one of the big box stores was carrying a 20" Koxx bike for reasonable money. Know what you're looking for and you're likely to find a used bike for a good price.

Best of luck

Wilkinsock is right on. Troll OTN for a while and be careful there, place is a tough crowd. Figure out what he wants to ride, 20 inch = mod, 24 inch, typically street but they also have a few comp 24 inch frames and then 26 inch = stock. Mod bikes are easier to learn on unless he is an avid mountain biker Mods are a bit cheaper. If you want to buy new, I can connect you with a reputable dealer in China or US - www.trialspads.com or www.webcyclery.com. the #1 bike trials store in the world is www.tartybikes.co.uk.

While your looking for a trials bike for your son, get yourself one as well.

LOL
I would, but seeing the price on some of the quality ones make me ill.
I payed only $1800.00 for a mint Sherco 2.9,
But HE is looking for the Monty style ( Good Taste ) not sure what style they call it, but the frame looks almost straight across, with hyd, or disc brakes...
Guess we need to settle best bang for the buck..
Thanks all for info.
will research and report back !!

I shared similar sentiments when I was shopping for a trials bike. What I didn't factor in at the time was that the economies of scale for trials bicycles does not match that of regular bicycles. Since it is such a small market segment the total costs of production/distribution/sale are going to be higher. Just a thought to consider. I know that it doesn't make the pill any easier to swallow.

I just wanted to let you know that I'm working on a pretty huge edit.. For the last month or so I have been filming my friend, Joacim Nymann, in the streets of Gothenburg and by the ocean. Joacim is currently Sweden's top rider and this video will hopefully get him some sponsors and to make him a name outside of Sweden. We already know that some pretty big eyes has been interested in his competition skills.. So one can only hope!

Sneak peak:
