Anyone know where to get one?

I really want a trial bike, not right now because i am poor. But eventually I need one.

Do you have to build it yourself or can i buy one?

Wow, great video! I thought that stunt bicyclist I posted up was amazing, this guy's doing similar stunts on a motorcycle!

I don't buy any of it...

I say it's all pasty white French tricks on a green screen.

Screw them and their unbelievably gifted precision urban trials riders. As the video clearly shows, they obviously have no idea what they are doing.

I'll stick to my couch and my, "Freedom Fries"..

I thought the same while riding around a local college in the early evening with some friends.. I think it was a mid 90's Husqvarna WR450.

I still have a noticeable, "dent" in my right shin to this day when it went sideways and the back wheel hit the bar in the middle of the stairs. I still can't believe that it didn't snap altogether.

Sure, my damage has scored me some trim but I can still feel it.

I say leave the green screen "tricks" to the young..

I stopped being invincible sometime in my early 30's, I'll leave that stuff to the young and fearless crowd.

I am sure i would end up hurt alot... but i honestly feel like with a day of practice i could do the stairs and then other stuff would start being easier. I think its on my wish list after college.

it's like snowboarding or skateboarding, everyone looks at pros and think "Wow, I want to do this too, cool" Only a few knows how many times these guys where FUBARed:broken bones, back issues, torn tendons.
Just ask yourself: how many guys out there get into xtreme, and how many actually become pros without major health complications.
I finally got my kid a skateboard so we can skateboard together. So the other day I was showing him how to ollie. Long story short: 10 years and 30lbs later, I forgot how much it can hurt
