Nationals 2018 Bend Oregon


Edited: Jan 9, 2018


june 22 is it??? 23? I think Ross has the helm of this??



anyone planning on going? thrre are a lot of great things between me and there (shasta spring water!) it may have to happen despite the fact I havent ridden for years due to injury. Didn’t stop me from competiting twice... Bend has some great nature nearby and killer camping opportunities all around- I’m hoping to make it.


I didnt see one single picture or video of thr 2017 competition which is sad... it should have footage all around... build up the amount of eyes that could have been there and get excited about the next one.2016 was awesome in colorado, very fun time... heres to 2018!!!


my training grounds, going to practice logs as there are rarely any here..

I am definitely there. Where can we get info on this?

Yes, NATC will be in Bend this year. June 23-24 is the tentative date, but it hasn't been confirmed 100% yet. I am not necessarily at the helm so to speak but I am involved. Once the dates have been confirmed it will be formally announced and more information will be released. Keep an eye on the NA Trials Facebook or the NA Trials website.


Here is some media from the 2017 event:

  • 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!
