Having recently moved i am in the sad predicament of living in an area bereft of ClassicTrials clubs and venues. Yes i know i should have thought about that earlier but in my own defense all my life i have NEVER had to travel more than 40 mins to an event every weekend and because there is so much incredible terrain around here, close to Aberystwith, i just stupidly assumed there would be loads of trials taking advantage of it.
So it's about a 2 and a half hour drive each way to my nearest Classic club so i find myself having to consider riding at a "modern" club and dont fancy trashing my Classic bikes. I have wondered about buying a modern bike, very limited budget, and have narrowed it down to either a Montesa 315R or a Beta 250 / 270 Rev 3.
Would these be a good choice for the "easiest" route ? Would there be a better option on a very limited budget ?
I'd still like to ride but at the moment it's looking to be not very often using the Classic bikes.
