  1. Hi folks, I've just bought a Beta Evo 2020 250 and want to upgrade the rear shock. I've been searching high and low for a Showa but have no idea where to buy one However, I've come across a 'Tech' rear shock on the Bosi team page. So, what do you think, how do these compare to a Showa? https://www.bosioffroad.it/en/products/tech-rear-shock-for-beta-standard-model-2-ways-regulation All suggestions/advice welcome. Kind Regards
  2. Ha ha, Possibly different terrain...:) I ride mostly in the Yorkshire Dales, up fells. The sections my brother-in-law sets out for me I can't do on my TRS, but on his Beta 250 2019 I find it a breeze. He's a 50/50 (sometimes expert rider) and he doesn't like the TRS either, but did say they are a bit like Marmite, some people (as per this thread) absolutely love them. I had heard it's the carb that makes it so fierce, I've heard it's the same on most 'factory' bikes so maybe it's just standard bikes for my riding style (complete lack of ability....) One thing that I would say is categorically rubbish on the TRS is the turning circle, I've never known a trials bike to lock out when turning, not sure why they haven't sorted that tbh. I assume the better riders don't care because they can flick the back end around but for me it's a crippler in some sections.
  3. I have a TRS RR 250CC 2018. I bought it because on paper it looked great, tech forks, Reiger shock, same dry weight as the Vertigo Titanium etc etc However, from a Clubman riders perspective, it's just too powerful and by that I mean it's an absolute animal. I've add a low pressure cylinder head insert, a smaller front cog, a slow throttle and still can't tame it. I'm in the market for a new bike myself and so far I've tested the new Vertigo Combat 250 2020, Beta Evo 250 2020, the new Factory Sherco 250 2020 & 300 models and they all feel A LOT smoother than my TRS. I let another rider (who rides 50/50) have a go on it last weekend and when he handed it back he said "I used to have a 300 before, a Gas Gas, too powerful for me"......it's a throttled down 250cc. My personal preference from the ones I've ridden is the Beta Evo 250 2020 and I intend to just upgrade the rear shock if I do get one. Good solid bike, easy to maintain, super smooth to ride, cheaper than some other bikes and I'm told they hold their value better than some as well. I just wish the kick start was on the right hand side! Without meaning to hijack Clanned's post, by all means, if you all think I'm about to make the wrong move, I'm also open for suggestions? Cheers

    Tech forks

    Hi All, I'm looking to upgrade the suspension on a Beta Evo 2020 250cc but wondered if it's worth it. I asked the guys at Splat show and got an extremely comprehensive response, the level of detail they go to with their responses is truly amazing. However, the detail was mainly around the rear shock. Regarding the front suspension they 'alluded to' the Tech Fork being the same functionally as the standard Beta Evo forks, just lighter. What does everyone think? Are tech fork just lighter or is there a real benefit (for a Clubman rider) I'm over looking? Also, are Showa forks any good? Cheers
