    no one is gonna have a complete bike for under $300 unless it is broken. if that's your budget your best bet is to find the smallest used xc/street/hardtail frame you can, and build it up w/ a rigid fork and whatever other parts you have lying around.

    OK... I have been looking for a trials bike. I like 26" wheels and Echo lookes like a sweet design (i like the hifi but anything will do really) I have some experience on trials riding (not much but i can hop on the back wheel and do some spins and stuff). QUESTION: Where can I find good used echo/other good trials bikes? Craigslist has failed me and not many people sell trials bikes on ebay (that i can find).
    I really want a trials bike with 26" wheels at a good price. I was thinking in the $300-$600 range. can anyone lead me to a good site for used bike classifieds or sell me their trials bike? Thanks much!

    I have a 06 Zoo pitbull frame I picked up that I just don't have time to build. It has scratches and some dings, the mark of a well riden frame. Still structurally sound.
    Let me know if your interested.

    LOOK around for a 14" and then start building keeping the trials in mind... WEBCYCLERY has great deals on a few closeout frames... true though.. trials is not cheap... buy good parts then ride forever... buy ****ty parts... well just don't waste money, buy the good stuff:banana:

    Hey folks.

    Selling my Koxx Djinn. Stock, except for Brisa Elite flatbar (uncut) and Maggie Hs33s and Echo 2-bolt booster on the rear.

    It's got proper scratches from trials on the frame, but no dents or cracks.

    Downtube signed by Lenosky.

    Right crankarm's bent slightly, just pick up an Echo 160mm square taper set for $100 and you're better than new. Or ride it like it is, I never noticed it while pedal kicking.

    I'd keep it but I'm making room for another bike and my right knee doesn't like trials as much as I do.

    I'm looking for $250 and buyer pays shipping.

    __________________________________________

    NOTES: This is a hella-fun bike that can be set up easily with a geared drivetrain. As a single-speed, you don't ever have to worry about trashing your derailleur on a sidehop or dying b/c your chain skipped on a pedal kick. It is in great shape, save for a few scratches, and needs absolutely nothing. Mechanically, it's like new. I'll professionally pack and ship it for free anywhere in the continental US. Outside US, duties may apply.

    Any questions at all, email hamer_vanguard@hotmail.com or jmcaleer@tctc.edu

    I'm in need of a magura rim brake for the front. Any type or style would be acceptable. I recently fell, crushing the lever to the bar destroying the internals. I have some trials parts for trade, and plenty of trailbike parts too. Cash as well.

    I'm trying to build a stock bike on a budget.
    So far I have a frame, bars, stem, and brakes.
    I'm looking for either good parts at low prices, or garage sale kind of stuff.
    I have lots of various parts listed in the classifieds I'd be willing to trade, or can do paypal.
    what I need:
    1 set of 4 bolt magura mounts
    disc/4 bolt fork
    cranks
    pedals
    f/w
    Hubs; 116 rear, standard disc front
    Rims; 26" of course, new would be nice.

    Any thoughts or ideas would be cool. When OTN is back up, I'll be looking there as well.

    Paul

    I love it when people not having a bike doesn't stop them. If you're riding on that, you'll really love a purpose built bike.

    My build is moving slowly but surely. Just placed the large parts order I needed today. So I'll be seeing that shortly. Then probably one other smaller order and I'll be set.

    On a sidenote, I just got my webcyclery order for some parts for my mod. Longer brake hose, fittings for bleeding, and a stainless crossover. So it's setup with the SL bars, but I'm working out the bugs on bleeding maggies still.

    I'm looking for an entry level trials bike. I would spend up to $500 on it. Would prefer stock, but would consider mod. I started to get into trials just a bit in college in colorado, and would like to pick it back up. here's the kicker- I'm in omaha. So if by chance any of you have an old bike you dont use any more and are in lincoln/omaha area or will be coming through, let me know.
