Cheers for all the comments, my pride and joy now its finally at the spec I wanted.
Took me a while to get the carbon fibre bars, titanium bashring and the cnc cranks, rides really nice as well so I've been told by some way better riders. :)

So trials riders trust carbon then?


How do you find the echo pedals? Was looking at them.

Yeah those bars are really strong, I'd trust them a lot more than a lot of the aluminium bars available.
The echo pedals are superb, really grippy and very light for platforms. I was gonna swap them for some caged but its not worth the hassle over 30g, especially as caged WILL snap!

Cheers for the info.

We dont see many trials bikes on here but i can see you have some nice parts on that.

Whats the weight? (and is it a good or bad weight?)

Not 100% sure on the weight, an average street bike is usually 10-11kg and decent comp bikes are 8-10kg. Think this is round the 9.2kgish mark which is good as the frame is not a high end one, I reckon changing the bottom bracket and a few bolts I could get it under 9kg easily which would be a very good weight!
