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 separately 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


how long does the rear brakes last on this bike, and if they are out wher can i buy or get the new once, because of what i heard u cant get them anywher cause they dont sell them separate, is that true?

Posted by max on 02/08/2011

Reply from TartyBikes on 03/08/2011

Hi Max - The rear brakes should last a reasonable amount of time as long as you take note of the information in the 'Additional Information' on the bike's product page. You can use any hydraulic rim brake with this bike, so you're not just limited to the Echo TR (if, for example, you wanted to run a Magura HS11 or HS33 instead). Regarding the TR brakes, they are available separately here: http://www.tartybikes.co.uk/hydraulic_rim_brakes/echo_tr_rim_brake_2011_single/c72p11199.html Thanks, Mark


When you refer to the spokes as plain gauge what size do you mean? I want to know which park spoke tool I can use. SW-3C, SW-2C, SW-1C, etc? And what is the corresponding size in inches? Thanks for your help!

Posted by 8Bit on 13/08/2011

Reply from TartyBikes on 15/08/2011

Hi - They are plain gauge, 14G / 2.0mm. Red Park spoke key is the correct fitment for the nipples (this is a separate dimension to the spoke thickness). Thanks, Adam


What are the stock pads on this bike (the white ones)? Are they designed to be used on a smooth or ground rim (light, medium, heavy)? Thanks a lot!

Hi - A smooth rim or very light grind. Thanks, Adam


Is every component on the bike in the picture exactly the same as what you get e.g. Same rise and length of stem pictured? because it does not state the length and rise of the stem. But hope i get the one shown, as the Echo site a simular Echo with a different angled stem.

Posted by Rimbo on 28/08/2011

Reply from TartyBikes on 30/08/2011

Hello - This bike is sold as shown in the photo, so you'd receive the same stem as pictured (which is a 125x25 stem). Thanks, Mark

Hello - All of our bike weights are shown including the pedals, so in the case of the Echo Trial it'd be using the Echo TR Caged pedals. Thanks, Mark

Hi, Is it possible to fit a bashplate to this ? thanks

Posted by Jack on 17/02/2012

Reply from TartyBikes on 17/02/2012

Hi Jack - The Echo Trial doesn't have any bashplate mounts, so you can only use a bashring. Thanks, Mark


Can you put a bash guard on this bike.

Posted by Tyler on 16/01/2013

Reply from TartyBikes on 17/01/2013

Hi Tyler - This bike is supplied with a bash ring as standard. It is not possible to fit a bash plate to this bike as it lacks the required frame mounts. Thanks, Mark


Hi thinking about getting a 24 but alson interested in doing competitions. Can you compete on a 24?

Posted by Marty on 12/05/2013

Reply from TartyBikes on 13/05/2013

Hi Marty - The UCI have officially allowed riders to compete on 24" bikes, and in most countries it seems that the rules have been adapted to allow their use. Here in the UK, our team rider Tom Rankin has been riding a 24" bike in the British Trials Cup and has so far won a round and finished 2nd in another, so it seems they can be competitive too! Thanks, Mark


Hi. Do you know what the gear ratio is on this bike? Thanks

Hey guys! Just a quick question on the colour. The ad claims info in the description is correct but the colour is not listed. Is it as shown in the picture? Cheers, Glen

Hi Glen - thanks for your question. These bikes follow the colour scheme as pictured. Thanks, Flipp.


Hey guys I have this exact bike and I'm having problems with the back wheel it won't stay straight and I always have to loosen it and readjust, I noticed that there's 2 screw holes on each side of the frame where the rear hub bolts hold, are those to keep the wheel from displacing and if so how do I adjust them! Thanks for your help! Alex

Posted by Alex on 19/08/2013

Reply from TartyBikes on 19/08/2013

Hi Alex - if you look at the front of the dropout (the side opposite where the wheel slots in) there is s grub screw that runs through the length of the dropout. These help to hold the wheel steady. Thanks, Flipp.


Alright team, any news on when this is going to be back in stock? also with the rear disc is there going to be a price difference? cheers!

Posted by Alex on 25/09/2013

Reply from TartyBikes on 25/09/2013

Hi Alex - our newest order of Echo stock should be in stock and on the website within a week or so. As for the rear disc model, it is just the mount. There will not be a pre-assembled dual disc option. Thanks, Flipp.


Does this have the same frame as the one shown here? http://www.tartybikes.co.uk/24_inch_frames/echo_trial_2013_with_bb/c70p11919.html I'm specifically interested in having the option later on to change out the rear rim brake for a rear disc brake.

Posted by slydacious on 31/10/2013

Reply from TartyBikes on 01/11/2013

Hi Slydacious - the frame used in this bike is one of the 4-bolt only versions, and we receive the bikes as a certain specification so we cannot swap and change components. Sorry about that. Thanks, Flipp.

Dave Carroll

Hi, Im looking to get a trials bike for my son for christmas,he is just beginning trials having riden mountain bikes for years. He is 13years old but 6 feet tall already. Budget is up to £900. any suggestions

Posted by Dave Carroll on 05/11/2013

Reply from TartyBikes on 06/11/2013

Hi Dave - if he's that height already he might start getting uncomfortable on a 20" bike if he grows much more. The Echo 24" is a very good bike, and a nice middleground between 20" and 26" bikes. It's bigger than the 20" so more comfortable for taller riders, but not as big as the 26" so retains some of the agility associated with smaller bikes. Having said that, the Crewkerz Freed 26" bike is also a great option. It is a little bigger overall, but it is quite small for a 26" bike so isn't too hard to handle. They're both solid bikes, each with some very nice features, though the Freed is 100 cheaper. Hope that helps, though if you were after a more detailed response feel free to email us! Thanks, Flipp.


Hi, would it be posible to swap this frame to the one with rear disc mount? If so could you do that for me ?

Posted by Tate on 30/11/2013

Reply from TartyBikes on 02/12/2013

Hi Tate - thanks for your question. Unfortunately we are unable to do this as these are supplied to us as full bikes. We are not able to switch components and the specification is completely fixed. Sorry about that. Thanks, Flipp.

Hi, i ride moto trials and i'm looking for a cyclo bike for a bit of practice and stuff. I'm about 6ft and just about stopped growing. I've had a go on a 26'' and didn't like it at all, and on a 20'' it felt a bit small and i found it easy to loop out often. This is about the top of my budget, so do you think this bike would be good for me? Thanks guys

Posted by Jack on 28/03/2014

Reply from TartyBikes on 31/03/2014

Hi Jack - thanks for your question. It sounds as if you have exactly the right idea! This bike feels very much like a compromise between a 26" and a 20", so would likely suit you perfectly. One thing to consider that may open your options up a little is that there are different styles of 26" bike. If you went on a modern one, it was likely quite a high bottom bracket model. If you have access to one, it would be a good idea to have a go on a low bottom bracket model as they feel very different to ride. If you don't like that either then a 24" will very likely be your best bet! Hope that helps, though please get in touch if you need more help. Thanks, Flipp.


I noticed in the picture that the bike has quite a lot of spacers between the frame and the stem as opposed to other 24 inch bikes that i have seen. how does this additional height affect the overall handling of the bike? is there a noticeable difference when doing pedal ups and front wheel swaps?

Posted by chris on 01/04/2014

Reply from TartyBikes on 02/04/2014

Hi Chris - thanks for your question. The additional spacers make your riding position feel a little less "laid out". It puts your back in a slightly more upright position, which feels a bit more natural. Using up-to-fronts as an example, it would make it slightly harder to get your weight over the front wheel to pivot over the edge, but would make the switch from front to back easier. It offers a more natural feeling when the bike is on two wheels and makes it easier pulling the front wheel up. There are a lot of benefits to both setups, but that is a rough outline. If you would like more help please get in touch! Thanks, Flipp.


I am 168 what should i use: 20" or 24"

Posted by Torstein on 18/02/2015

Reply from TartyBikes on 18/02/2015

Hi Torstein - thanks for your question. Most people of that height tend to be more comfortable on a 24" or 26" than a 20", though there are some exceptions - Dani Comas, for example. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

Hi i´m 5foot 7 and i want to buy a 24" or 26" and i wonder if i am to small for a 26" bike what are your recomendations?

Posted by Joacim on 10/06/2015

Reply from TartyBikes on 10/06/2015

Hi Joacim - thanks for your question. You should also be Ok on a 26" bike as many people your height are, though because you are a bit smaller you will likely find the 24" a bit easier to ride. Thanks, Flipp.


It is possible to get by brakes stop screaming?

Posted by Torstein on 25/06/2015

Reply from TartyBikes on 26/06/2015

Hi Torstein - thanks for your question. Since it is a disc brake, the front brake shouldn't make too much noise. If it is, there may be a problem somewhere, so please get in touch with details and we will try to work out if something can be done! The rear brake will always make noise. With a brake like this on a bike like this, the noise is just an unfortunate side-effect of the brake working well. Different brake pads (for example, the Trialtech Sport pads) may reduce noise a bit, but it will still "honk" a bit! Thanks, Flipp.

Hi, my sons wanting a trials bike for xmas ,hes an average height 11year old he is adamant he needs a 24 inch ,I think this may be to big what would you recommend thank you

Posted by debbie on 06/11/2015

Reply from TartyBikes on 06/11/2015

Hi Debbie - Bike sizes are a little tricky to gauge from age, so we tend to go from height. Generally speaking, riders under 5ft/1.50m are usually better off on a smaller 20" bike (such as the Onza Tyke, Monty 207 and Monty 209), with riders above 5ft/1.50m being more suited to full size 20" bikes or above. If he's around the 1.5m mark then the Trial might be a touch on the large side for him. If you've got any further questions, feel free to e-mail us at TartyBikes@gmail.com or give us a call - we're happy to help! Thanks, Mark

Hi Daniel - We can usually tell from the country the bike is going to which side the brakes need to be on, but if you mention it in the 'Notes' section of your order at checkout we can make sure it is done. Thanks, Mark


Would this bike work as well as a mod or stock for pure trials moves? Would it be worth to change to a more grippy back tire for riding in the woods or does the one fitted on be grippy enough?

Posted by Elliot on 19/03/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 21/03/2016

Hi Elliot - The Trial is a great bike for pure trials! They're a good alternative to 26" bikes if you'd like a slightly more nimble, agile bike, as the slight reduction in wheel size makes quite a big difference to how the bike handles. They're more like a stock than a mod in terms of ride/feel, to give you an idea of how they ride. For dry conditions the Holy Rollers are fairly grippy, but if you're riding more natural, especially in the wet, a different rear tyre would be a good upgrade. Most of the Schwalbe or other Maxxis 24" tyres should work well. A few riders have also used the Continental Danny MacAskill tyres on the rear of their 24" bikes and find they work well. They have a good compound, a good volume inside and good sidewalls so can be a nice alternative, although in very wet/muddy conditions their relatively low height tread pattern would be more limiting than something like the Schwalbe Big Betty or Maxxis High Roller/Swamp Thing. Thanks, Mark

Hi , I was just wondering if this bike could be used for street trials or if the geometry would make some of the moves harder compared to something like an inspired bike?

Posted by Dominic on 08/11/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 08/11/2016

Hi Dominic - If you mean street trials in the sense of the type of riding that Danny MacAskill, Ali Clarkson and riders like that, we wouldn't really recommend the Echo Trial. The geometry is fairly extreme on this bike so it would make most of the moves difficult to perform, but also the parts on the bike are designed with more competition-style riding in mind so tend to be much lighter and consequently less durable for street trials riding. As a result, overall it isn't very suitable I'm afraid. If you will be primarily doing competition-style riding then the Echo would be a good bike as you can still do a few spins and tricks here and there, but if you will mainly be focussing on street trials then it wouldn't hold up as well as something like an Inspired. Thanks, Mark

Mike Dennis

Hi, I recently purchased the echo trial mk5 and I'm having trouble aligning the rear wheels. Is there anything I need to know on how to do this? Thanks Mike

Posted by Mike Dennis on 19/08/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 21/08/2017

Hi Mike - The little integrated tensioners in the dropout should help you out here. If you flip your bike upside down and look at the underside of the dropouts, you'll find a hole on each dropout that runs up the length of the dropout. Inside that hole you'll find a grub screw, which you adjust using an allen key. Loosen off your axle bolts and adjust the wheel positioning with those grub screws, then nip the axle bolts back up. That should do the trick! If you have more problems, feel free to send us an e-mail. Thanks, Mark


Hi. Is there a specific torque that the rear wheel axle of the echo trial mk5 should be set too? Thanks for the help. Mike

Posted by Mike on 05/09/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 06/09/2017

Hi Mike - Echo don't set a specific torque for these bolts. If you're having problems with your wheel slipping, it's worth double checking you've got plenty of grease on your axle bolt and inside the axle threads themselves, and also that the integrated tensioners within the Echo dropouts are set to the correct places too. If you're having any other problems, feel free to send us an e-mail! Thanks, Mark

I just bought a 24'''echo mk5 what is the best tire pressure to run to avoid damaging the rim

Posted by kyle on 24/12/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 26/12/2017

Hi Kyle - There's no "right" tyre pressure as such as it will depend on your riding style, weight, technique and so on. Generally we recommend pumping your tyres up to around 35psi, then going out for a ride. As you're riding around, try letting out a little air at a time to see what feels best for you. It's a compromise between getting more rebound from the tyre at lower pressures (which helps with trials moves), but not having them so low that you're more susceptible to pinch punctures (where the tube becomes pinched between the rim and the tyre). Thanks, Mark

Kyle Bosson

Hi guys if i were to put a 24" fork on this bike, how would it affect the geometry? specifically front wheel moves.

Posted by Kyle Bosson on 19/07/2011

Reply from TartyBikes on 19/07/2011

Hi Kyle - Most 24" forks use the same geometry as 26" forks - dedicated 24" forks usually just have a rim brake mount in the correct place for a 24" rim but the actual geometry of the fork will be identical. As a result, it'd be very similar for front wheel moves whether you've got 26" or 24" forks on there. Thanks, Mark

Reply from TartyBikes on 08/05/2013

Hi Clinton - As a general rule for the bikes we sell, unless the bike is shown fitted with a seat and seat post, it would be impossible to mount one. Almost all the bikes we sell are designed purely for trials riding where having a seat is considered a disadvantage. As such, most of the bikes we stock don't have any option for fitting one.

It is worth noting we are currently out of stock, and when we get our next batch in they will likely feature a disc brake mount, as some of the frames we received in our latest order did. The colour is also slightly darker. Hope that helps! Thanks, Flipp.

I am considering purchasing this bike as my first trials bike. Is this a good choice in bike? If not do you have any recommendations on which bike I should get instead? Thanks.

Hi Joe - this is an excellent choice for a first bike. They are relatively cheap, quite light and quite strong. The bike's specification is quite high, and the geometry is very comfotable. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

Hello being the first time that I buy online I wanted to know the exact price in Euros. The bike costs (£ 899) should be in euro ( 1 072,45). Let me know. Thank you.

Why does this frame looks different from The flow or the others

Hello - The Echo Trial is designed more for competition-style trials riding, whereas the Flow is designed for street trials. As a result, the Trial uses a smaller, lower, lighter frame, but the Flow has a taller frame with a seat (which can be useful for certain street trials moves), and is also designed to deal with the stresses and strains associated with doing the extras spins and whips that are used in street trials riding. Thanks, Mark

I am 6ft7 and considering a 20" monty with a long stem. Would this bike be better for me? I used to ride 20" in my teens I am now in my 30's, dont like 26" Just want to start riding!! thanks guys

Hi Matt - In all honesty the Trial MK5 would be worth looking at as it will suit your height much better, and does give a good blend of 20" and 26" characteristics. They do slightly lean more towards the 26" side, but they feel much more nimble and agile than most 26" bikes do. The only downside is a relative lack of tyre choice compared to 20" and 26", but we've found that either Maxxis High Roller or Swamp Thing tyres work well on them, or the Continental Danny MacAskill Air King tyres (designed for street, but a good all-rounder!). The Echo bike itself is incredibly good value for money, and you'll get a lot more bike for your money than you would do with Monty where you are - to an extent - paying for the name. Thanks, Mark

overall the bike is good devilery was fast, it does seem to skip sometimes in the f/w crank area I dont know why, also one of the axle bolts was jammed in and had to be taken to halfords to be removed but other than that its a great bike and I highly recomend to other beginners or even more experienced riders

Reply from TartyBikes on 27/09/2012

Hi Daniel - Thanks for your review. Regarding the 'skipping', when the bike is new sometimes the sprocket and freewheel will tighten on fractionally more as they first bed in. Sometimes this can make a skipping/banging type noise, but it should settle down very quickly. If it continues over a longer period of time then it might be an issue, but the freewheel used on this bike is very durable so it should all be fine. Regarding your axle bolt, we've made an instructional video to help out in this sort of scenario which you can view here: https://vimeo.com/23584688 As it mentions in your warranty document, if you have any issues with your bike we request you contact us first as usually we're able to help out straight away without you having to pay to take your bike to a bike shop to have it 'fixed'. In any case, I hope you enjoy the bike!


AMAZING bike for the price.

This bike looks even better in person than it does in the pictures. Im 5'6" (168cm) tall and this bike fits perfect. I started on a Mod and I like the 24 much better. I will although get different tires and change the front brake. The back brake is super solid with the TNN black pads. The only gripe I have is for some reason the ECHO disk would not hold very well. I took the Hope from my mod and and put it on, with the pads from the echo, and it works way better.

Hi Matthew - It's good to hear that your bike has been working well for you. Regarding the front brake, the Echo TR disc rotors are made of a very hard material so can take a while to bed in. As your Hope rotor would theoretically be bedded in fully it would then work much better than the Echo model. In any case, I'm glad you've got a brake setup you're happy with. Thanks for the review!


very nice

Posted by Dylan on 29/12/2013

I am very happy with this bike. I feel very comfortable on it at 5ft 11". Wouldn't change anything on it.


Nice bike

Posted by Florian on 27/09/2017

Geometry is awesome and allows large moves as with a 26" but 24" wheels make the bike easier to ride. All components are wisely chosen to make the bike performing and easy to maintain.price is very low for such a nice bike.

Hi Florian - Thanks for the review, I'm glad you like your new bike! I hope you continue to have fun riding it.
