I am looking to get back to my roots and can't find a used trials bike anywhere local.
Does any shop have any trials stuff?
I mean the Shore was a hot bed for tech moves, and now it's all flow. It's not bad but just hard to find a local used bike.
I saw this and got the fever again.

Are those not local enough or not the right size?

Earlier today, I had emailed the 2010 one in coquitlam, no response yet. And the $500 one looks a bit steep for the build and I am not in to front suspension on a trials rig. Thanks for the responses.

My buddy emailed me his contact info if you want it, let me know.

Otherwise, he suggests you look at the buy and sell here: www.observedtrials.com

Pretty much the only Canadian dealer around now. Hugo's pretty fast at delivering parts if you need them. Shipping is as fast as you want to pay.

I try and get out regularly but I'm still very much a noob.

2010 Transition TR450 - 34.56lbs - the lightest TR450 ever?

I bought this Koxx 1040 way back, circa 2003'ish. I didn't do much street trials with it. Mustly natural trials down at Spanish Banks, Bellcarra and Squamish, so it isn't beat to shit.

But I got old and interests changed. I've kept it always thinking one day I will get back into trials. But never have.

Its still mint. Hope mini front hub [HTML_REMOVED] disc, Magura HS33 rear hyro, XTR (03') rear hub, Raceface cranks [HTML_REMOVED] bb, Ultegra cog set, XTR(03') derailer, IMMOS bashring….. yours for $650. I can send details photos if your interested.

Oh the nostalgia

Is that my old frame?? I had one just like that that I sold used but I can't remember how long ago… there can't be a lot of them around. Mine was a Koxx Level Boss.

Nope. I bought my Level Boss 1040 brand new from Ken at the Trialsin Shop (aka, Kens garage) in Port Moody.

Been digging up photos from an old external hard drive. Forgot how much I really loved this bike.

Back when I was into trials, there wasn't bashrings that were wide enough for my liking. So being a machinist, I started manufacturing my own. IMMOS - I Make My Own Shit
I sold about 40 of these to the local guys, a few in the States and 3 to Sweden.

They still do bike trials comps at ioco, so someone must do it
