Anyone have a spare $7650 they want to loan me and I'll test if it really is the perfect cross-over bike for BC trails and trials.
I would rather go trials bike…gas is not an issue and for wide open stuff I would rather go moto, gotta have both, shirk you buyin a bike? [HTML_REMOVED]
For $7560 you can have a dual sport, trials bike and light enduro. That's if you shop wise ;-)
For the guys talking trials tires…Mitas trials tires work just fine, had one on my Montesa for a long time. The MT43 is the one suited for a plated enduro, DOT legal and all. Plus, thicker (yes, less flexible) sidewall and less chunk-able tread than the spendy Mich or Dunny radials. I ran one for a season on my woods bike and while great for rock, root and chunder it sucked in mud and steep loose ground. I went Motoz and am not looking back.
