  1. TOBY won both days, but barely. Pat tied him Saturday with a clean day. They had a ride off in a really knarly stream bed section. They both three it the first ride. Jitsie will have a video of it. Sunday Martyn had 1 point. Pat had 5ed it his second attempt and Tobi 1ed it.
  2. By the way, yrials riders levers are almost 90 fegrees to the ground, so we can have a finger on each at all times.

  4. Come on if you are so knowledgeable about running diwn the road at the Scottish. Hieght, bars, awkwardness is the least any of the riders are worried about . Its all about the bike!@ Fuel, carburation, cooling and above all TIME@
  5. Actually I would not have thought riding on the road would lead you to be making bike changes. And I know plenty about the Scottish. We have had 3 women and 2 men ride it over the years Besides Lewisport began there American adventure with my club. 52 years now I have been riding trials. The Scottish has always impressed me and the SCOTT has always been the opposite. All this B.S. over a noob that does not like the trials stance. He should have spent a few hours on a real trials steed. Like the ty250r 1984 model. The best bike ever, until it was not!
  6. Yes, a trials bike is very uncomfortable when running long periods down roads. Thankfully you can stand back up to stretch at any given moment, An early pro model bike is not much different from current bikes as far as trail riding. Just do it more to build up stamina. Once you start riding events, you never think about standing all day as you are focused on riding. Now some of those long down hill sections can sure take a toll. We are talking miles at a time. Zippy is right about the bars. I have been cutting mine down for 52 years now. That`s the first thing anybody notices when they get on my bike.
  7. Drift out with the nut off. Parts will be hard. I fixed a 92 with jb weld and it lasted for years. Have fun.
  8. You do not sat during the scottish! D. Lampkin is tall too. Maybe we should change triala bikes to endueo specs. LOL.
  9. Hieght has nothing to do with it. My son is 6'6" and laughs at people who complains. Most human bodies are proportionate. Long legs AND long arms mean they have an advantage over short people, not the other way around.

    He means he wants a Montesa with a cr450 motor!
  11. You might want to take off the flywheel cover and let it all dry out. Try contact cleaner. Then give it time to dry out. Bring it in the house for a day or two.
  12. Not all are the same length, spring size, or mount size. Plus Gas Gas has gone bankrupt twice and changed owners 3 times since 2015.
