The ultimate complete trials
Stock Frames List
     (v1.85)

  Back ..

 

If you have any missing info about a frame listed here,
or want me to add a stock frame to the list, e-mail me.

Note: frames listed here come from natural trials, urban trials, street, jib and urban assault worlds.
Don't assume that just because they're in this list, they are automatically dedicated trials frames.
All you can assume is that since frame is listed here, it's not too wrong a choice for trials riding.
Learn how to understand geometries (FAQ) and then find something that will fit your own, not your
friends' ideas. I listed and filtered all kinds of frames here by a complicated set of rules, and
all that in order not to leave out some hybrid frames that would fit riders who don't want
dedicated frames. All in all, perhaps 15% of frames listed here are pure natural trials frames.
