Does Endurocross count as trials riding?

Yeah, I know that the answer is "NO."

But how about carrying a trials bike over obstacles? Does that count?

This is the latest video from Enduro Alaska documenting (partially) the Trialscross category:




Now that it's over, I've been thinking about growing up and getting serious about trials.

Does anyone have a lead on a relatively late model bike in the Seattle area? Craigslist isn't flooded with trials bikes like I though it would be.

Regards,

Mr. BigWheel

Mr. BW. You missed your calling - your a very funny comedian. Loved the commentary. Excellent effort as well. That rock garden was evil! Hats off to you both!

Very well done! I think I enjoyed your video more than tv coverage. Can't wait for your next video BTW yes Taddy is in a league of his own.

Thanks for watching guys.

I have a perfect trials bike-sized crate sitting in the Seattle area. I was hoping to find something newer, shinier and easier to find parts for than the Rotax-powered Scorpa. The shiny bike would be put in that crate and shipped back to Alaska.

If anyone knows of a worthy successor, please let me know. The Scorpa will take up permanent residence down there and will be ridden more sparingly than the daily driver.

Regards,

Mr. BigWheel

Nicely done, what an odd form of competition. Says the Trials rider....

Is VxZeroKnots a rotorhead name?

Thanks for the help with the search for a new set of wheels. I appreciate the PMs.

In the end, since I was going to probably buy a bike that I wouldn't see first, I went with a new one.

There will be a new GG280 Econo headed this way when I'm done raiding the kids' college fund.

Regards,

Mr. BIgWheel

MR. BW, didn't know you were a Trials rider also!
My hat is off to you for the Endurocross ride and video!!!
Maybe we should build a BW Trials bike and be REALLY different!
I'm game...let's talk!
