All bikes may feature small blemishes in the anodising or marks in the finish of other components - this does not affect your warranty.

This bike is supplied with a 6 month warranty covering manufacturing and materials defects. The warranty does not cover mistreatment or poor maintenance. Please ensure all the details on the warranty sheet supplied with the bike are adhered to. Certain circumstances (such as stripped threads or rounded crank arm tapers) only occur due to a lack of correct maintenance and all manufacturers are aware of these situations, so any claims due to incorrect maintenance procedures are much less likely to be successful.

We build this bike to a 100% complete state in our workshop before dispatch to ensure all items are manufactured correctly and nothing is missing, but we do have to remove some parts to ensure there is no damage during transit. You will need some basic tools (usually 4mm, 5mm, 6mm and 8mm allen keys and a 15mm spanner) for final assembly upon arrival. We have a video guide here to help, but please don't hesitate to contact us if you require any further assistance.



Given that this is the first time Echo is selling completes, have any corners been cut in quality to offer this bike at such a great buy, or does it consist of the same TR line of Echo products currently available aftermarket? Thanks in advance.

Reply from TartyBikes on 07/04/2011

Hi Kenny - This bike is built up of the same Echo parts you'd be able to purchase seperately on our website, so the quality is great throughout the bike. As the spec is fixed, Echo can buy/produce these bikes in bulk which results in a lower price overall. Thanks, Mark


Would you be able to buy the bike with a back hydraulic?

Posted by Connor on 10/04/2011

Reply from TartyBikes on 11/04/2011

Hi Connor - As it says in description, "If you want to change any parts, the only way to do it is to purchase them separately and add them afterwards. We cannot offer any discount for taking parts off the bike." As a result, you can either follow that process or we could spec up a custom bike for you, but this will cost a lot more than the standard Lite 2011 Dual Disc bike. Thanks, Mark


Can I change the parts on this bike? Thanks.

Hi i'm trying to find a bike that i would like i do like echo as they are decent smooth rides if i was to buy the bike then buy a separate hs33 for the rear would i need to buy a lever or does the lever on the current work with hs33's

Posted by Dean on 17/07/2011

Reply from TartyBikes on 18/07/2011

Hi Dean - The new Echo Lite 2011 Dual Disc bikes are now supplied disc only, so it would be impossible to fit a HS33. Sorry! We should have photos of the new bikes up on the site in the next day or two. Thanks, Mark


hi would this bike be strong enough to do a 5 foot drop off a wall on?

Posted by ross on 17/07/2011

Reply from TartyBikes on 18/07/2011

Hi Ross - Our team rider Joe Maher has been riding one of these frames for quite a long time and has had no problems with it, and all the other parts are from Echo's aftermarket parts line which have been proven to work well. I think it should be able to handle it! Thanks, Mark


I have a bit of a dilemma now as I'm stuck between the bow and this echo as i like hs33 and don't really know what to think of dual disk is it as strong and trust worthy as a hs33 or is the hs33 a better brake?

Posted by Dean on 19/07/2011

Reply from TartyBikes on 19/07/2011

Hi Dean - I personally found that I liked dual disc much more on my mod than a rear rim brake. The brake is nice and silent, you get great modulation and hold but the bite is very good too. They also tend to be a little more maintenance free than Maguras - you don't need to change pads often, re-grind your rim, etc. Discs also have the advantage of working better in the wet which is handy if you're planning on riding comps. They do feel a little different at first, but once you're used to it it's a nice change! Thanks, Mark


Hi just wondering does the Echo Lite 2011 pedal backwards as well as forward

Posted by finn on 03/09/2011

Hello - The Lite can roll backwards and forwards. Thanks, Mark


Does the Echo Lite 2011 full rotation on the handlebars or not

Posted by finn on 03/09/2011

Reply from TartyBikes on 05/09/2011

Hello - I think it'd be pretty tight in terms of your back brake hose being long enough. I believe it'd just about be long enough, but I couldn't say for certain sorry. Thanks, Mark

Josef Wahlstrom

Hi, I wonder if you know anything about the model year 2012, when it comes out and what the difference will be. Sincerely, Joseph.

Reply from TartyBikes on 26/09/2011

Hi Josef - As far as we're aware this is the same model that will continue through 2012. Echo haven't informed us of any changes, so they should be consistent for the coming year. Thanks, Mark


Hey could a bashring be fitted on and what would i need to do to fit it

Posted by Andy on 25/10/2011

Reply from TartyBikes on 25/10/2011

Hi Andy - You'd just need the bashring itself, and also a freewheel removal tool if you haven't got one now. You'd simply need to unscrew your freewheel from the crank arm, then replace the thin Echo crank spacer behind your freewheel with the bashring of your choice, then screw the freewheel back on (using plenty of grease!). Thanks, Mark


Hey, could the axle bolt washers and the crank bolts be changed to another colour but keep them the same echo ones so there is no price alterations ?

Posted by Andy on 25/10/2011

Reply from TartyBikes on 25/10/2011

Hi - No, as described the specification is completely fixed. Thanks, Adam


is this a short bike?

Posted by tom on 23/11/2011

Reply from TartyBikes on 23/11/2011

Hi Tom - This isn't a short bike as such. Most "short" bikes tend to have around a 990-1010mm wheelbase, and this is 1025mm. Thanks, Mark


If i ordered this bike how would it be packaged like handlebars off or half assembled or somother way i live in canada so i hope that on the long journey here it would get here undamaged or scratched just interested because im thinkin of buying this bike or the echo lite sl dual disc

Posted by Nazarij on 29/11/2011

Reply from TartyBikes on 29/11/2011

Hello - The Lites are supplied partially assembled. The bulk of the bike is set up, but thing like the bar/stem are removed, bubble-wrapped and secured in the box. We take a lot of time to make sure that our bikes are packaged as well as possible, and having shipped bikes all around the world for the past few years we haven't had any issues with bikes arriving damaged. Thanks, Mark


Why is it so expensive?

Posted by john on 21/02/2012

Reply from TartyBikes on 22/02/2012

Hi John - If you add up the price of the parts used on this bike, the complete bike is actually relatively cheap. The components and frame come to well over 1,300 if you bought them separately, so the complete bike - plus the free labour in terms of building it - seems like quite a good deal. The Echo Lite frame itself is great, and has been one of the most popular 20" frames of the past few years. The rest of the components that build up the bike are some of the best out there too - the Echo TR hubs, TR cranks, TR pedals, SL headset and SL freewheel are some of the best products available, so in terms of the bike itself the durability and performance should be great. Thanks, Mark

Kevin Kingsley

TartyBikes Team,I live in the States and trials bike shops are very limited. Can you recemend a 20" trials bike lenght for me? I am 6'tall with a 36" inseam. I love to bunnyhop. I do not wish to purchase an entry level bike. I wanna go hard core! Any suggestions? Thank You.

Posted by Kevin Kingsley on 23/03/2012

Reply from TartyBikes on 23/03/2012

Hi Kevin - Generally speaking most 20" bikes should bunnyhop well as by their nature they're quite small and 'chuckable'. To make sure it's nice to hop I'd recommend trying to stick to something below 1020mm long - something like this Echo Lite Dual Disc bike or similar (e.g. the RockMan Austin or ZOO! Lynx) would be ideal for that. To accentuate it's ride characteristics you could try putting a slightly higher stem on too - this has the effect of moving your body weight slightly up and back, which means you move into a neutral, bunnyhopping position. Thanks, Mark

James jenkins

i have a maggy back break and im fed up of keeping fixing it all the time, is there any point getting a disk for the back, is it worth it? cause i've heard the disk breaks on back are not as good as maggys need some advice?

Posted by James jenkins on 29/03/2012

Reply from TartyBikes on 02/04/2012

Hi James - If it's for a 20" bike then I'd say discs are a good call. On my own 20" bikes I preferred using disc, and it seems like most other 20" riders prefer it too. They work well in all weather conditions, don't require constant maintenance like rim brakes do (you don't need to regrind your rim regularly, change pads regularly, etc.), offer good bite and hold as well as modulation and generally look after themselves. The only real downside to discs are the possibility of hitting your rotor on obstacles and bending them a little, but that doesn't really happen often enough to offset the good points of them. Thanks, Mark


could you also add a bashring to this bike?

Posted by ben on 02/04/2012

Reply from TartyBikes on 03/04/2012

Hi Ben - Fitting a bashring to this bike should be no problem. Due to the shape of the Echo cranks, most bashrings should fit fine. Generally though, either a bashplate OR a bashring is enough - you don't really need to use both. Thanks, Mark


Hi i was wondering how long the handlebars are

Posted by Nazarij on 10/05/2012

Reply from TartyBikes on 10/05/2012

Hello - The bars are 740mm long. Thanks, Mark


Is there room, if I wished to, take the bash plate off and attach a front bash ring? Would this effect the chain line and cause any issues to arise? ( frame rubbing etc ) Cheers

Posted by Craig on 05/05/2013

Reply from TartyBikes on 07/05/2013

Hi Craig - That should work fine. The bike is fitted with a spacer that takes the place of a bashring, so if you simply switch that spacer for a bashring it should work perfectly. Thanks, Mark

Harry Adair

Hi, Im asking about the "additional" information. Do i have to do something to the brakes when i get the bike or is it just something to make sure is ok? Thanks, Harry

Posted by Harry Adair on 15/06/2013

Reply from TartyBikes on 17/06/2013

Hi Harry - It's simply something to check rather than needing to do anything to the brakes. They should be set up fine when they reach you. Thanks, Mark


What are the kind of differences between the onza vox and the Echo Lite Dual Disk?

Posted by Josh on 02/07/2013

Reply from TartyBikes on 03/07/2013

Hi Josh - thanks for your question. There are a number of differences, many are subtle, some quite notable. One of the notable differences is the the Echo is over a kilogram lighter! There are other very influential differences, such as 30 engagements on the Onza's freewheel versus the 108 of the Echo's. One of the more subtle differences is that the Onza features a standard threaded bottom bracket, whereas the Echo features a press-fit. Another is that the Echo also features 4-bolt brake mounts, should you ever desire to move away from a rear disc brake to a rim brake. Thanks, Flipp.

Hi Joe - unfortunately our Echo orders can take quite a while to come through, so it could be as long as two months before we have these bikes back in stock. If you want to be notified when we do get them in stock you can use the notification system just to the right of the price. You will automatically be sent an email when we receive our new stock. Thanks, Flipp.

Reply from TartyBikes on 14/02/2014

Hi Gareth - thanks for your question. Yes, this is a 1000mm wheelbase bike. That question relates to an older model (it was asked and answered in 2011) - the 2011 model had a 1025mm wheelbase, and when the description was updated that question was not removed. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

Anita Eek

What size are the wheels? It looks like the rear wheel is smaller than the front wheel.

Posted by Anita Eek on 04/04/2014

Reply from TartyBikes on 07/04/2014

Hi Anita - thanks for your question. The front wheel is a 20" wheel - the same size as on BMX bikes. The rear wheel is slightly different. The outside diameter of the tyre is the same as the front tyre, but the rim is smaller. This allows a chunkier tyre to be fitted that remains the same size. This type of rear wheel is known as a 19" rear wheel. It is not actually 19" in size, the name is just to differentiate between that type and the normal type. I hope that helps, please get in touch if you need further information! Thanks, Flipp.

Hi, I'm 5 foot exactly, will this bike be to small?

Posted by Austin on 05/12/2015

Reply from TartyBikes on 07/12/2015

Hi Austin - If anything, the Echo Lite may be a little large for you if you're 5ft tall exactly, although that can be easily solved by fitting a slightly shorter stem. Something like a 130mm x 30 stem should do the trick if the bike did feel a little too long at first. Thanks, Mark

Chris barlow

Dear tarty bikes, Last Christmas I bought a monty 207 from you for my youngest son.. This year I would like to change my older sons bike. Would you be able to sort out a deal on a echo lite so I don't have to keep searching through eBay every evening. Thank you Chris

Hi Chris - Thanks for getting in touch. Unfortunately we can't come down on the price of the Echo Lite at all as it's already very cheap as it is - it's around 200 cheaper than last years model, despite it being the same spec. Thanks, Mark

Tharun Shiv

Hello tartybikes , is it possible to make the left side brake into the front and the right side brake the rear brake because its shown the other way in the picture ??? Thank you , Tharun Shiv.

Posted by Tharun Shiv on 09/01/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 11/01/2016

Hi Tharun - That would be no problem. Before we ship any of our bikes out we check the country they're going to and set the brakes up accordingly. Thanks, Mark


Good morning tarty bikes, I haven't ridden trials for a couple of years and I'm thinking about starting again and this looks like a good starting point.... Being 94kg and using 160 rotors do you think they will be powerful enough or is it worth getting bigger ones? Would bigger rotors invalidate the warranty?

Posted by Ben on 09/01/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 11/01/2016

Hi Ben - I think the brakes should still be powerful enough, but if not upgrading to some Trialtech or Jitsie pads would be a good bet as they give a fairly dramatic increase in bite and hold. The standard Echo rotors are made from a harder material than Shimano, Magura or Hope rotors so if you wanted to speed up the bedding in process and get a little more power switching rotor type would help out too. Going up a rotor size wouldn't invalidate the warranty so that side of things would be fine, and would be another good way of improving brake performance. Thanks, Mark

Kawika Balmoja

Any issues with the Echo Lite frames cracking? Not talking about from abuse or regular amount of service time but repeated cracking to specific areas? Big riders (200#)okay with the Lite frame?

Posted by Kawika Balmoja on 06/04/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 07/04/2016

Hello - We haven't received a single report of one of the last couple of generations of Echo Lite frame breaking, so as far as we're aware they're pretty tough! The spec on the Lite is reasonably solid too so I don't think there would be any problems with durability for any riders. Riding style will affect longevity a lot more than the rider's size for the most part, but even then as long as the frame's not having repeated contact with walls/obstacles it should still hold up fine. Thanks, Mark

Would this bike be suitable for someone who is 5' 10" ft in height and 11 stone in weight - really want a 20" wheel bike if possible.

Posted by Barry on 21/07/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 21/07/2016

Hi Barry - We recommend this bike for anyone from 5ft to a little over 6ft (at which point a 24" or 26" bike would generally fit better), so it should suit you absolutely fine. As standard the bike comes with a relatively short stem compared to others on the market, so if it did happen to feel a little cramped at first it would be possible to replace the stem with a longer one to give you a bit more room. Thanks, Mark

Brogan bursill

Can you fit a bash ring to this bike? And would this bike be suitable for a rider 5ft7inches and 12stone?

Posted by Brogan bursill on 06/08/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 08/08/2016

Hi Brogan - Fitting a bashring to this bike would be no problem, as long as the base is 4mm wide (the widths are listed on all of our bashrings). If you're 5'7" then the Lite should fit you almost perfectly. We recommend 20" bikes for anyone from 5ft up to a little over 6ft, so you would be right in the middle of those guidelines. Thanks, Mark

Brogan bursill

How complex would it be to bleed the brakes on this bike? And what bleed kit would you need?

Posted by Brogan bursill on 28/08/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 30/08/2016

Hi Brogan - Bleeding these brakes is relatively simple, it follows the same procedure as most rim brakes do so you can always refer to them for help. Just to give you a rough idea, you would bleed up from the caliper up to the lever. You would need a bleed syringe, and two bleed hoses as well as some mineral oil. Thanks, Mark

Brogan bursill

How much would water and dust affects the braking preformence eg. Disk roters getting wet

Posted by Brogan bursill on 30/08/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 30/08/2016

Hi Brogan - If the brakes get a little wet/dusty then there shouldn't be too much difference in performance, but if they get very wet and dirty then there will be a drop in performance. Thanks, Mark


Im thinking of buying the bike but im worried that the back disc wont be as good as the hs33 rim brakes. Are they just as good,better or worse ? Thanks.

Posted by Rob on 07/09/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 08/09/2016

Hi Rob - Once bedded in, we find that disc brakes tend to be much better for 20" bikes than rim brakes. They offer a lot more hold, and once bedded in fully they have great bite too. The standard rotors on the Echo bikes are quite hard so do take a while to bed in, but if you'd prefer to upgrade in the future, the Hope Trial Zone V2 rotors are compatible with the Echo brakes, and the Trialtech Sport Rim Brake Pads fit the Echo brakes too and give a big boost in bite too. Thanks, Mark


It's possible (aftermarket) to switch to 170 or 175 cranks?

Posted by Giovanni on 14/10/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 17/10/2016

Hi Giovanni - That would be no problem at all. Any 170mm or 175mm cranks would fit, although if you use some other than Echo's splined freewheel cranks you would need to buy a new freewheel too. The freewheel supplied with the bike will only fit Echo's own spline system. Most other cranks just use a screw-on freewheel design. Thanks, Mark


hello I broke the spokes of echo mk5 but do not know the length could you tell me the length so that they can be ordered? i've broke one front and one rear both on disk side if you can tell me the lengths of all the spokes so I take more for spare change thanks nafi!

Posted by nafi on 13/04/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 18/04/2017

Hi Nafi - If you're ordering the spokes from us, simply order a set of 20" Spokes from our Spokes section and mention in the Notes section of your order at Checkout which bike they're for. We'll work it out for you from there. Please note that ordering one quantity of spokes would be 32 spokes in total, so if you'd like us to split those up between the different sides of your wheels so we've got spares we can do that. Thanks, Mark

Hi - We would recommend the 26" at your height. Thanks.


How is the included Echo TR Hydraulic Brake with 160mm Disc compared to the Hope Tech 3 - Trial Zone with 180mm Disc (that's on my Fourplay Pro)? Needed brake lever force? Feeling (the hope is very hard)?

Posted by Axi on 19/09/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 20/09/2017

Hi Axi - The TR brakes are based around the Hope brakes, so they have a similar level of power and performance. The lever feel is slightly different due to the lever itself using a different design, but in terms of force required to brake it should be similar. The smaller wheels on the Lite mean that you can use smaller rotors and have the same effect, so using a 160mm rotor isn't a disadvantage. Thanks, Mark

Posted by Jarmo K on 25/09/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 26/09/2017

Hi Jarmo - This bike should fit you fine. There aren't any weak points to the Lites - they're great little bikes, especially for the money too! There's nothing you'd need to immediately change or upgrade on the bike, so you can just get the bike out of the box and ride it as-is, then simply tweak parts on the bike as you start to learn what you do/don't prefer in terms of grips, pedals and so on.

Hi there, I'm looking to buy a bike but can't decide whether I'm better off with a 20" bike or 26" bike as I've been riding 20" for a few years and want to start competing. My previous bike was a piece of junk and had more think wrong with it than right. Just don't want to buy a 26" if I can't handle it. Cheers

Hi Brennan - There's no 'right' size of bike for trials, it mainly comes down to riding history and personal preference. If you've got experience riding a 20" bike and you got on with your previous bike, then the Lite would be a great option for you. If your 20" felt on the small size, or you're hoping to pick up different skills like doing taps, then the Pure MK6 (which will be online soon) would be worth a look. To simplify it, with your background, the Lite would be the 'safe' option, but the Pure would be more of a gamble. Both are great bikes though, and wouldn't hold you back. Thanks, Mark


I have recently bought this bike and am wondering what tool is required for the chain tensioner ? as the chain is getting a bit slack , but every thing else on the bike is great, amazing bike very well made , very light , next to no cons to this bike at all. Great bike for all levels.

Hi Brennan - You just need a 2.5mm allen key for the tensioners. If you loosen off the axle bolts then use a 2.5mm on the integrated tensioners in the dropout, you should be able to get the wheel into the right place and have it stay there when you tighten the axle bolts back up again. I'm glad you're enjoying the bike in any case! Thanks, Mark


Hey there! I'm from Greece and i'm 11 years old and i'm not sure for my next choice ... My father also wants a trial bike so we probably buy an Echo and use it together. Should I buy Lite MK6 or Kid ?

Reply from TartyBikes on 18/10/2017

Hi Aggelos - We recommend the Lite for anyone over 150cm/5ft tall, so if you're at that height or above then you should both fit fine. If you're a bit below that height then the bike might feel a little long at first but you should grow into it well. Thanks, Mark


Would a 110mm stem with a 35 degree angle work?

Posted by Anton on 05/11/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 06/11/2017

Hi Anton - Unless you're trying to make this bike a much smaller fit for shorter riders we wouldn't recommend a stem that short. Due to the high BB on the frame, you ideally need a reasonably long/high stem to counteract it and get your body in the right position, so if you went for a 110mm stem you'd feel like your weight was very heavily biased over the front axle. Hopefully that makes sense! Thanks, Mark


Hi, is the bash guard as effective as the older variety? Looks like its front edge could hook-up. Could a bash ring be fitted if requested?

Posted by Iolo on 03/03/2018

Reply from TartyBikes on 05/03/2018

Hi Iolo - The new bashplate design is inspired by the bashplate designs used on most other 20" bikes and seems to work very well. Koxx initially brought out this 4-bolt system about 5-6 years ago, and it's been introduced by most other manufacturers since then. We haven't heard of riders having that kind of issue with them so I don't think it'd be a problem. Fitting a bashring would be no problem - the latest generation Echo cranks simply have a spacer fitted in lieu of a bashring, so you'd just take that spacer out and fit an Echo bashring instead. Thanks, Mark


Hi i am 6'5 with a quite muscular build and way approx 110kg. Would this bike be able to handle my weight aswell as my height. I have mostly been doing my trials on my customized mountain bike but i am looking to get the correct my so i more maneuverability on my trails. Is this the bike for me or should i be looking at something witha bigger rim size.

Reply from TartyBikes on 05/03/2018

Hi William - The Lite should be able to handle your weight fine, although it will feel a little cramped if you're 6ft 5in. We'd definitely recommend looking at the Echo Pure 26" instead if you like the look of the Echo bikes. The Pure is a 26" wheeled bike so will feel more similar to your mountain bike (and will also let you transfer your skills across from each bike more easily), and the larger frame size will make the bike feel a little more suitable for you. As with the Lite, the Pure bikes are designed to be nice and strong so you shouldn't have any worries about durability. Thanks, Mark


What height is this bike for would it fit someone around 1.6 metres tall

Posted by Jimmy on 15/04/2018

Reply from TartyBikes on 16/04/2018

Hi Jimmy - The Lite is designed for riders 1.5m and above so you should fit it perfectly. Thanks, Mark


Echo Lite MK6 £729 or Echo Lite SL £1149,99. Price difference of 421 , but which one is recommended for an inexperienced trial bike buying? Mountain bikes are already familiar. I gonna need trial bike only for fun. Age 58 years 176 cm / 80 kg.

Posted by JarmoK on 11/05/2018

Reply from TartyBikes on 11/05/2018

Hi - Thanks for your question. Both are great bikes, but I guess for fun / a second bike, the Lite Mk3 will be absolutely adequate. Because the bike is a little heavier also, it means it is a little more resistant to falls and landing heavily, which always happens while learning! Thanks.


How do you tension the chain on this bike ?

Posted by Andrew on 22/05/2018

Reply from TartyBikes on 23/05/2018

Hi Andrew - The Lite MK6 frame has built in tensioners within the dropouts. They use grub screws that allow you to push the axle rearward in the dropout to add tension. With the wheel in the dropouts and the axle bolts loosened off a little, you'd insert an allen key into the hole on the end of the dropout and tighten the grub screw until your chain is tight and your wheel is straight. Once that's set, simply tighten up your axle bolt washers and you're good to go! It's a nice, simple system. Thanks, Mark


Hello, im wondering if i could drive this bike because im 1.60m but in he description it doesnt tell what the recommended sizes are for the bike. So could you tell me if i could drive the bike? Thanks!

Posted by Lukas on 31/05/2018

Reply from TartyBikes on 01/06/2018

Hi Lukas - We recommend the Lite for riders over 1.50m (the Echo Kid is their smaller bike which is for riders from around 1.20-1.50m), so you should fit the bike almost perfectly! Thanks, Mark

I assume the warranty covers the brakes too? Are the TR Disc brakes available aftermarket? If not, is there anything that can be done if something happens to them after 6 months? Thanks.

Posted by Ross Winsor on 22/04/2011

Reply from TartyBikes on 28/04/2011

Hi - Yes the warranty covers the brakes too. They are not available aftermarket at this stage. After 6 months, we hope Echo would have them available separately (and thus spares too). Thanks, Adam

emiliano gregori

hi I wanted to know if the bike is the height of professional users, and national competitions?

Posted by emiliano gregori on 17/07/2011

Reply from TartyBikes on 18/07/2011

Hi Emiliano - This bike would be great for competitions or top level riding. It is quite light, has very good parts and the geometry of the bike is great too. Thanks, Mark


Hi, Is the bike 20" front tyre and 19" rear? Thanks

Posted by Alex on 16/06/2012

Reply from TartyBikes on 18/06/2012

Hi Alex - That's correct. Thanks, Mark

Jonah Krier

Hi, I was wondering if the rims on the bike are both disk and rim brake compatible in case I would like to install rim brakes in the future?

Posted by Jonah Krier on 09/05/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 09/05/2017

Hi Jonah - There is a braking surface on both rims, so running them with rim brakes in future would be no problem. Thanks, Mark

The best bike

Posted by rasmus on 29/03/2017

I have had this bike for a long time and a I´m in love with this bike. I have not haved any problems with the bike and the tyres are super gripy.

Hi Rasmus - It's great to hear your like your Echo. Thanks for the review!


TartyBikes is Awesome!

Posted by Marco on 06/01/2017

- Bike delivered at door step 48 hrs after dispatch (I live in Abu Dhabi) - Bike was packed and pre-assembled PERFECTLY. It took me 10 min to assemble the losing parts. - I couldn't find any cheaper ECHO Lite MK5 with the same specs in the whole internet. - Bike is awesome: high level and precise welding on the frame, light, good tyres, brakes so far are working amazingly, they are firm but yet very sensible to pressure. - Freewheel sounds and works very well. - If I want really to find something to improve, is cable management. Brakes cables are kept on the frame with standard black cable straps. Considering the high level details this bike has, this cable straps look a bit cheap. Buy with Confidence! I wish all the success to this young team of passionate riders in TartyBikes! Keep up the good job!

Hi Marco - We're glad you like the bike! If you wish, you could buy some extra stick-on cable guides to make the hose routing neater. Many thanks.


Echo TR mk5

Posted by Blake on 11/02/2017

Thank you to all at Tartybikes, the transaction from start to finish was painless and very helpful. Having rode trials in the past and wanting to get back into the fold, this bike seemed like great value for money. I purchased mine with Jitsie brake pads and can't fault the bike one bit. So far so good, brakes work like a dream (Having previously had an old megamo team dual disc which was awful, the Echo has made me a disc convert), and the whole package seems solid and well specced. Highly recommend!
