  1. Well Shirty is selling both brands!

    2021 GP models?

    It was in one of the Spanish online mags.... very low key, very back burner.
  3. Same for me. I wear pretty bulky Fox Titan Race hard knee/shin pads under my S3 Pilot pants. I find my MX pants way too loose and bulky riding trials.
  4. I'm enjoying it. My first reaction was... trying to be a bit too clever, but now give a good laugh at it.
  5. The Diagonal States Of America.....
  6. I listened to Cabestany's podcast interview.... Seems like professional observers for Trial GP, would be quite an added expense?
  7. It's not definitive, just my experience.... I've ridden newer Beta Evo 125's and Sherco/Scorpa 125 has more everywhere... bottom. middle, and top. I rider I know who had a Beta Evo 125, and now he rides a 200 and a 300SS. He got a ride on a newer Sherco 125, and he was impressed.
  8. If you are in North America there is less change, as bikes in that market keep the Ohlins shock for 2021.Other markets switch to Reiger for 2021.
  9. All the bikes are good, and have certain minor pluses and minuses in ownership. I've owned standard Gas Gas and Scorpa 125's. I presently ride a 2018 Scorpa 125 Factory. I've ridden Beta Evo125 and TRS 125RR. You don't say if you're a youth or adult rider? I'm an adult on a 125. I prefer it for ease of starting and lighter feeling. It does take more commitment and precise technique, especially in wet conditions doing larger obstacles and big hills. Pretty simply stated, the Sherco/Scorpa 125 is the engine of the class powerwise. TRS felt like everyone thinks a 125 feels. TRS125RR engine is getting a revision for 2021 though, so might have improved power.
  10. Grattarola said he's ready to return to TrialGP class, after his second Trial2 World Championship. I imagine he'll be staying on Beta and replacing Dibs. Before the announcement I thought Dibs would possibly swap spots with Grattarola and drop down to TR2 with Beta. Best of luck to him in the next part of his life.
  11. Buy the 200. It has enough power and with 6 speeds you can trail ride it. If and when you out grow it, the 200 will retain a good value when you sell it to go bigger.
  12. I had a 240 and a 300. I'm small at 5'6' and the 300 just seemed taller and more awkward. The 240 seemed lower and more agile. The 300 never felt like too much power, but flywheel was more than I liked. I always wanted a 200, as I'm really a small bore guy at heart, but they didn't work well on our big hills.
  13. There is a video where Sammy Miller talks about his first home built trials bike,it's geometry and how it's essentially the same a modern bike.... 63.5 degree steering head angle and 53 inch wheelbase. Jerry Young the first USA National Trials Champion and Father of Ryan Young 6 times USA National Champion, told me basically the same thing.... His first bike which he still owns and rides, a 1967 Triumph Cub converted from road to trials, has the same wheelbase and steering head angle as his 2019 Sherco. The main change over time has been the reduction of weight and lowering of the center of gravity.
  14. Did you buy your bike from a new Gas Gas dealer who isn't really a trials shop?
  15. Jitsie sells aftermarket Tech fork springs and Ohlins shock springs. Lightest springs available are still for a 80kg/176lbs rider though. https://www.jitsie.com/en/front-fork-springs/51252-spring-for-tech-front-fork-aluminium-39mm.html https://www.jitsie.com/en/rear-shock-springs/51248-spring-for-ohlins-rear-shock-absorber.html
