Regarding your little guy's brake lever reach issue, see the little set screw in this picture? That is a reach adjustment. If you take that in, the lever will come in accordingly. You may have to adjust the cable tension as well.
Thanks for the pointer on the lever adjustment.

He sold it to me for $500. His daughter never used it so it was basically in mint condition when I got it this past spring from him. And, he gave me a friend deal. I'm sure he could have sold it online for $700+ or at least that's what he told me.

Also, the speed adjustment (governor) is a must for the really young ones and/or beginners. These bikes can really zip at full power!

I'm sure all of the models and makes have a power adjustment.

I suggest you invest the time and see the bikes in reality before you make the purchase. I know you said you saw them in Oshkosh but I mean to see them next to the other bikes :-).

People who said "OSET" in above posts has only seen OSETS so their opinion is biased same way as mine.

Maybe check video with Garraham offroad training on our facebook http://www.facebook.com/kubergmotorcycles
Note that KUBERG sell also MX model.

If you do not know where to see or test the bikes - let me know I will make it happen.

Anyway - happy riding for your kid.

No most of the above have built there own or seen what can be built better. In fact LCNM Rider built a trick 20" three years ago. http://www.trialscentral.com/forums/...0-alternative/. Here`s a link to a bike our club president just built his daughter!

So Im looking for something for my 5 year old and Im torn between the Kuberg Trial E and the Oset 16-36V. The Kuberg is available from Amazon for $1100 and change. I can get a new Oset for $1300 shipped to my door. The main functional difference I see is the battery. The Kuberg has two 12V batteries (at least according to the spec I can find) that yields 24 Volts. The Oset is obviously a 36 Volt setup. However they both appear to have 750W motors.

Thoughts?

Edit: This all may be moot as I will probably switch over to LiPo batteries...

Hi Soloyosh, KUBERG Trial E has 3 x 12V 14Ah batteries - e.g. 36Volts. Check up KUBERG Facebook page - you might love what you can get.

2 kids raised on OSET. They are a known quality bike that are active in the sport. I know where I would go.

I ended up taking the leap on a Kuberg.

I dont pretend to be a trials expert. Ive never owned a trials bike. I learned to ride at age 26 on an 88 CR500.

My boys are already riding on a XR70 (8 year old) and XR50 (5 year old). My youngest isnt getting up on the pegs. So the XR50 was sold and the Kuberg will replace it. My hope is to get him up on the pegs on a lighter bike without him getting distracted by the engine.

We will see how it goes. I'll likely start a new thread to follow my Kuberg experience.

Cheers
Brett

Mechatecno

My 6yr old has a 36v mecatecno, he's dying to go across the creek, but I can see a damaged motor and wiring when he goes ass up mid creek.

Any idea how creek proof these type of bikes are?
