I look forward to actually reading about trials and having a site without all the BS that went along with some other trials sites.Make sure to look me up, when you're at my home for the few days of the Agricultural Fair 17-20 . I should be home from July-Nov, we can ride a bit.

 

Maeder would be proud,

Congrats Craig! I am grateful for this re-birth of BikeTrials.com. I look forward to productive content shared by positive and kind trials riders.

 

Back when I started bike trials, Stephen Maeder was kind and helpful as I was learning. I was fortunate. Glad to be here.

Hoping it is a good resource for the trials community! There will be more coming to the site over time, but I wanted to get it up and running asap.

  • Wondering if anyone has researched and or successfully converted some sort of non trials mtb 26" frame to a streety trials bike. Something with a long-ish top tube, 0drop bb or so, short stays, low front end like 60-80mm fork and rear disc.
  • I purchased a heatsink tensioner for my Hex, replacing the Trialtech two wheeled tensioner I have been using for years. I now have more chain than I would like hanging down. I am a half link away from being able to shorten any further and would like to use a half link. This is where it gets confusing, I have never done this before and have read on every chain description on Tartybikes that the split link that comes with every chain sold is not recommended for trials use. There are no alternatives given. I have read that people just push a link pin out enough to remove the required links and push the partially removed pin back in. This makes me uncomfortable. If I was to use a half link I would have to do this twice or, I would have to use two split links which is not recommended for trials use by Tartybikes to put the chain together. Both options sound sketchy to me. Can someone with experiential knowledge and experience please explain how I can use a half link without compromising the chains integrity so I won't worry about my chain snapping on every drop?! Split link image provided for those who may not know what it is.
  • I have the clean t13 v2 brake lever with echo calipers. I can't get the pistons to retract consistently. I've bled them several times, lubed and exercised the pistons but still can't get them to work right. Has anyone else had this issue? Thanks for the help!
