New to the site and trials.

Recommended Posts

Thanks for adding me, want a new angle in life , always fancied a trials bike but never got round to it so fifty this year and decided to have a bash! Always rode motorbikes, since 13 years old, bit of off road but mostly road riding over the years.

 I stumbled across this site whilst researching trials bikes and it’s great. I’m looking at all types but mainly at Beta evo 200 and the older Montesa 260 4 stroke. I’m in the process of moving from Suffolk (B.S.Edmunds) to Dunmow (Essex) so my wife is insisting I don’t buy a bike just yet but I am looking so you never know ? 

cheers people, I’ll certainly be on trial soon! Stef.

Hi, 

Without wishing to add to the never ending 2 stroke/4 stroke debate get yourself an Evo 200 (as late a model as you can afford as the earlier ones were based on a 125 bottom end, later ones a lot smoother). 

Yes I am biased because I have two of them, a 2018 and not long ago bought a 2020. They are very easy to ride and will allow you to make mistakes without launching you into the surrounding countryside like some larger capacity bikes. 

Like you I rode on the road for a long time before getting back into the "feet up" game about 5 years ago. I made the mistake of buying 250's and bigger engined bikes thinking that you needed them but take my word for it you don't. Unless you are going to compete at British Championship level or above a 200 is all you need. 

Good luck and enjoy yourself!
