    I’m after a used low mileage 4ride in excellent condition in the UK. If anyone is thinking of selling let me know. Thanks


  2. My lad is desperately after a trials bike toy/replica model that he can actually play with. I have done a bit of googling and had very limited success, I found a thread on here from 2010 that basically said they didn’t exist. Just wondered if anyone knew of any changes in the last 10 years? Thanks Dave
  3. Planning this year’s trip to the Scottish and looks like I am going to have to bring the dog. I’m pretty sure there’s a couple of groups that are no dogs allowed (Fersit?) but wanted to know if the majority of spectator groups are dog on a lead friendly? Thanks Dave

    SSDT Sticker

    I have come up to spectate later in the week this year than usual (arrived today) and not only have they run out of kid’s T-shirts and hoodies I can’t track down any stickers. Seem to have all gone. My lad will be gutted if I can’t find one. Does anyone have a spare one I could have for a donation to a charity of their choice or a drink at the bar or something? Cheers Dave
  6. Agree reference the Manx and Longmynd. Reeth can be a hard 3 days at clubman level if the weather is against you, (same amount of sections as 4 days of the Scottish but obviously less miles) but in a stunning setting. That’s definitely a good gauge whether to consider the Scottish I reckon. I would love to ride Scotland but in all honesty it would be a week of dragging the bike through sections at best for me, and a long way to go not to finish. Still go and watch though. Gerald Simpson, Blue Bar and the Bemrose are all good shouts too. French 4 day is meant to be great too, but I’ve never ridden that one

    Engine case cover

    I am after an engine case cover for the gear lever side, ignition cover for my 4rt. I’m not a fan of the trick bits ones. Has anyone got a pic of an alternative on the bike? I’ve found an apricot one but can’t work out what bits it protects from the off the bike pic. thanks Dave
  8. Think the suspension is different on the 4ride. Slightly longer travel than the 4rt. Geared differently too as far as I’m aware. I’d probably go for a 4rt or an Evo 4t with a long ride removable seat if I wanted it purely for trials. Or a 4ride if I wanted to Trail ride too.

    Beta Alp 200 Silencer

    Yes, thanks. That’s what I thought. Shame, I know they’re not the most popular bike but a few about and more than the earlier model I would have thought which you could get silencers for.
  10. Has anybody found an aftermarket silencer that fits the current model Alp 200? The only one I can find looks ridiculous and I’m presuming the old DEP one from the earlier 200 alps or the DR200 ones don’t fit. Cheers Dave
  11. Yep, read it and enjoyed it. Agree regarding the surprising parts. Especially the 4rt. Not sure how interesting it would be for non trials riders, but a great read if you’re into trials.

    What did I buy?

    Yes , pretty sure 301/250 was as big as they got. Fantics used to be good bikes. Lost their way a bit when things went water cooled, wish they were still making trials bike though. Used to look like this new.

    What did I buy?

    Yep. No expert either but that’s what I would say. 247 cc but the model was the 301. 241 was 212cc, 201 was 156cc etc.
  14. Yeah, really enjoyed it. Felt for him at Leanachan Forest when I watched it back. I was one of the ones with my phones out filming him, expecting him to struggle. Fair play to him for getting round and bringing a bit of exposure to the sport.
  15. British Engineering at its finest. Well if the mont goes in the back easy enough at least I'll be able to carry back up transportation.
  16. Very close to buying a 110 station wagon. It's been covered on here that you can get a bike in the back (2 at a push) but just wondering how easy it is? I can't be doing with loosening bars or taking bits off. I just want to roll in and out. Is that possible?
  17. Really like the idea of a 4ride for trail riding. I can cope with the fuel range, and gear lever position, but am slightly concerned about the air box. I ride Wales a bit with some fairly deep river crossings occasionally on the Strata Florida and the like. Is the air box exactly the same as on the 4RT? No additional snorkel or anything? Does anyone trail ride one regularly? Cheers Dave

    I think it will be Doug again. I reckon he's got a couple more wins in him. Think Michael Brown is the only one that can stop him realistically unless there are bike issues etc.

    Ty175 Side Stand

    Its like this one but shorter. I'll just estimate off the picture. Cheers

    Ty175 Side Stand

    Yes, shocks are 350mm and fork tubes flush. Rear tyre is 3.5psi. Yes the way forward is to extend it. Didn't there was a left and right hand option. My stand is on the right, throttle side. Whether it's the right stand for that side I don't know. But think so.

    Ty175 Side Stand

    Thanks for the replies. It's definitely too short, no doubt about that. Shorter than all the pictures, shorter than all my other trials bikes. Could have ruined my 9 hour drive to the highland classic last year when it fell over and snapped a lever as I walked section one. Scratched and dented the tank though. Rode it yesterday in the Kia round at Nene valley (good trial nene valley, well done) and fell over numerous times there, so that was the motivation to finally pull my finger out and sort it out. Just after a measurement off one that has a side stand that works. It's not s full restoration but is/will be a nice one. Cheers Dave

    Ty175 Side Stand

    Got a side stand off eBay that was billed as a 175 side stand. It looks like one but is far too short. So don't know if it's been cut down or is off a TY80 or something. Would one of you with an original side stand on their 175 be kind enough to measure it for me? I'm going to cut it and weld an extension in. Thanks Dave
