    trials on the big bike

    Anyone here doing any type of trials riding with there freeride bike? I've been messing around with it at the trail head cause my riding buddy is always 20 minutes late so I got time to kill. After the 5th try I was able to pedal kick from a dead stop from a log to a bolder on my 38 pound AC. They were only bout 2 feet apart and around 15 inches from the ground so it was nothing big but I was pretty happy with it.

    yea it can be done but you're suspension pivots are going to take a beating!
    besides that, its so much more work to keep the front up with heavy bikes.

    do you ride trials?

    I'm sure you'll be fine just messing around here and there on the big bike, If you get serious then you should get a specific bike and save the linkages/bearings.

    I do it..

    I do it all the time although not as well as on a trials bike..

    My FR bike is a Moment and the suspension take allot of your energy to pedal kick etc.. but it is possible. Not to mention if you do it on the trail during a ride peole think it is crazzzzy
