    Smile Any trials riders amongst us

    Hi guys, i was wondering if they are any trials riders here. Reason i ask is i've not long got an old fantic 250 to play on, and it's not as easy as it looks watching the pro's at work. Looking for some tips please.

    Cheers Woody

    My farther in law is Ex British Champion, were talking years ago, but he re engineers his classic bike, as long as certain measurements are the same like wheel base you can alter things like width and bike materials. Although looking at your bike his are deffo much older. He's just sold his Areil, stunning machine, built the hole thing himself and got Mick Grant(came second to Barry sheen) to build his engine. He practices on a mountain bike but his knees are giving up now as he's 67, still does the local Classic events though.

    Hi Rushy, thats really interesting and pretty impresive unfortunatly they no longer have trials events in shetland no more whether thats down to a lack of interest i dont know, but it would have been a good way to learn. Since i've taken it up alot of my friends are becoming more interested in it, alot of them were into scrambling, so you never know it could take off again up here. As for your father in law he sounds a very talented man and must be very fit for his age as it really seems to take it out of you, even just messing around in a park.

    Cheers Woody
