I like the forum as it is..

If we divide it up too much it will seem like nothing ever happens here. lol
I like how this forum is very open and new riders (trials, xc, bmx, whatever) can ask anything.
I really dislike the new rider category being separate from a more "experienced" rider category. To me, that just shows there is no community. There shouldn't be only a couple "experienced" guys telling new people what to do just cause they check a sub-forum normally and the others don't bother.
If its all together, everyone has better odds of noticing some new guys post and maybe helping him out.

It would be nice to have a competitions, tutorial, and maybe a media sub-forum. But if they were just Stickies and there was some way of having them highlighted when its new or has a new post, that would probably be better..
There just doesn't seem to be enough competitions going on to need a dedicated section.
Maybe just have a stickies sub-forum and highlight that when something new is added?

This forum isn't as biased as the other major forums either. They can call it gay all they want. At least there are open minds here. Salute

Start up a comp thread and I'll sticky it. Same goes for the media thread, I'm all for it.

If anyone wants to write a tutorial, I will start a tutorial thread and add all of your well written tutorials to the master thread. This way we will have a single, well organized spot to store them all.

As for the other suggestion, send me proof of age, a cheque for $20, and your Playstation Network credentials, and I will reply with some other sites to look up.

I am a newbie.
for me, it's easy to find tricks tutorials on youtube and DVD or some thing.
I will like some experience of experienced riders like how to practice more effectively. like why should I setup my bike like this. what parts are more critical.
all newbie want know. maybe it is gonna take a lot time to practice and to know. but some TO KNOW article may help.

(PS: Especially when you like me, have a all time job, work over time every day, and a suspension is gonna cost more than your full salary. you definitely want know where to put your hard work money)

Suggestion for improving this thread; change the name to trials or bike trials. Observed bike trials is too 1990 hans rey. What the hell is observed trials anyway and who are these creepy observers. Do we have them observing us Dh riding? Trials has evolved into a street/trials skillset and deserves more respect. The amount of bike handling is second to none. Just don't go over 15mph and its oOoOoOOoo shiiiiiiitttt!!! Just trials we get it. Half the moves in park/bmx are based on trials moves, nuff respect.

Hi there everyone, I am new to this forum. I have used pink bike before, I am New into the trials but have just bought a mod and will be definitely joining this forum. I will agree on the split from experienced to newbie riders, I feel that the questions and topics of conversations would be in such a different manner that for a newbie for me it would make it much harder to get the info I need when I have to sift through so much different topics. ( also I apologize for my grammar in advance )


Side note if there are anyone riding trials in the penticton area, please msg me asvi would love to ride with some people, cheers!!

Welcome to the Trials scene. Feel free to ask whatever. Normally people have some good replies on here.

Need more of a trials community first!

I like the forum already. But I think you need to add more trail based information in the forum and lots of instructive images contents to attract visitors. If people find resources from here beneficial the forum will automatically lift up.

I think we could add a trick of the week to start it off. Or if people want to learn some moves, I could probably bother the guys to take a quick clip, to critique some techniques or styles that may help.

Or we could do handy moves on a non specific trials bike to show it can be done?

All these things only last so long though.
