anyways, i've gotten into it alot and it's great fun. i've also enjoyed watching videos of trials and MTB'ing so i figured i'd share

(it's more a heavy XC setup)
i never really understood the concept of trials.
mostly I do XC races but i do some DH and freeride occationally.
basicly i ride a crappy Trek hardtail... it's all i can afford but it gets the job done... even if i have broken nearly every part on it.
broke the front derailer and replaced it with one of the Deore ones, bent one of the cranks and replaced it, then bent the front chainrings and replaced them again (this time with one of the nice Deore ones), broke two chains, chewed up the freewheel, and finnally i hit a tree during a DH race. it caved the forks in and destroyed my seat, (replaced the forks with a cheap rockshox one).
the frame has held up to all the abuse though... it's just everything else has failed miserably but what can you expect from a $500 bike?
also, that's a fun little vid. you should check your local MBA and see if they know of any good places to ride. I have two good trails that are only a 15 min drive away... I try to go out 2 or 3 times a week when i can squeeze it in.
if you're ever in the mid-michigan area PM me and we can go hit some of the local trails
