    No wonder some people thin a Relex is a trials bike, you get people trying to sell them that find pictures of some joker playing with his junk on some rocks and post them in there ads and then tell everyone they can have that much fun too! :csm:fpalm

    Why anyone would google "image of guy hitting skid plate on rock" when trying to sell a bike is kinda weird. But glad that Brewtus' pic came up nonetheless! :thumb

    Looking closer at the picture I have to admit I am not really sure what...
    :photog

    If I had to guess I would call it "out right junk"

    Still hard to imagine a trail bike that makes a terrible trials bike has become an investment for those with no knowledge of trials. Brewtus`s loved reflex was made from three piles of crap. I over bought on my first reflex at 400 bucks and my last one I got free as it had been abandoned for 9 years. It takes about 1500 bucks to turn it into looking like a real machine, plus countless hours of labor.

    I'd like to have a reflex for a project bike, but I am not willing to pay what most people are asking for them.

    Did that 95 GasGas 160 above come with upside-down fork from the factory?
    Are parts still readily available for that model?

    Upside down forks were the rage for trials in the 90's.

    When MX & serious Enduro went to upside-down they never looked back.
    Did Trials come back to conventional forks because U/D did not work well?

    Others can pipe in there, but I think the two big things were not enough steering lock and too stiff and maybe too easy to damage the lower tubes.
