Hello, would this bike be good for a beginner? As opposed to the zoot? Thank you!

Hi Iggy - That depends on which style of trials you hope to learn. The Zoot would be more suited for street trials, whereas the Kaizen is more aimed at competition style riding. Either bike would be good for a beginner in the relevant discipline/style of riding. Thanks, Mark


Hey, So I am considering this frame with HS33 on the rear. I used to ride BMX and 20" trials in the late 90's, I am now 36 want to get back into it. Thing is I am 6ft7...I am thinking now I am older maybe a 24" would be better, but I have a soft spot for 20". the wheelbase on this frame is good and a longer stem could help me right? any advice appreciated

Hi Matt - As you're at the top end of the height range, you'll almost certainly need to try out a longer stem on any bike you go for, but there are a few things to note. Firstly, with the changes in BB heights and head angles on bikes now, the wheelbase isn't as relevant as it used to be. For example, the 'reach' measurement of the 218 (essentially measuring the length of the front triangle) is 595mm, whereas on an Echo Lite it's 620mm. That's despite the Echo having a much shorter wheelbase. The Lite should fit you better though as the reach is 25mm longer, and the steeper head angle will also move your bars a bit further forward relative to the BB too. In terms of stems, the Trialtech Race Forged stem would be a good call as it's 180mm long, but still has a lot of rise too. With modern trials bikes having much higher BBs than before, you need to make sure your bars stay nice and high to stop it feeling like your body weight is more over the front wheel (you're essentially raising your feet, so need to raise your hands too). Thanks, Mark
