Oset 24 at 6ft2

Recommended Posts

Hi all first post so hellooo....

I would like to get into the trials scene as I have recently bought my daughter a torrot and going anywhere with her on my ktm is a big no no these days so I am looking at getting the oset 24 but i am a little worried that being 6ft 2 it will be a bit small, is there anyone else this tall who has one? Are they ok and what mods can be done to make it ok for us lanky folk? I am in the weight limit so that is not a problem and I will also be getting a better battery for it so I'm just concerned about them being too small.

Cheers 👍

Bend your knee`s you are not that tall.

Bending knees to compensate for a smaller than usual bike is not really a viable option for me riding all day long... I always have to put 40mm risers on a full size enduro bike for it to feel right and comfortable, I dont know how the osets compare in size to a full sized trials bike hence my question.

Try a longer/higher stem and some Easton pilgrim bars on it, that would add some reach and hight bringing your riding position slightly more upright and stretched out if your feeling restricted ,im 5,11 and ride a modded 20r and find that's OK. So a 24 should be good for your hight.

Go for a Electric Motion. I'm 6ft and bought a Oset 24.0R new last year, I was impressed with the power of the bike but handling over obstacles was hard work. kept it a few months and swapped it for a EM. It was definitely the right decision , 100%!
