Mattycoops Posted May 25 Report Share Posted May 25 (edited) Hi everyone My name is Matt, and I've got 25yrs of road bikes under my belt, but always wanted to have a go at trials. (used to compete at landrover trials). I bought a 2009 beta evo 250 this week with the help of a friend who is very into trials. First ride this afternoon, just up and down some parking spaces with a few steps. I love it! But wow is it different to a road bike. I'm a mechanic and a welder, so happy doing stuff on my own bike. (good job as it needs fork seals urgently) Based in Newport, my trial riding friend is over in Clevedon, so I would love to find some local people who are into trials. I'll be going over there so he can show me the ropes, but I want to be doing some proper practice, so ideally find somewhere more local, where I can meet some new friends! As a mechanic, always happy to help anyone local to me who wants to learn the spanners side of things, or use tools.
