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.



Hola, este cuadro puede montar freno de disco trasero, y el Carter viene con placa protectora, ya que no se exactamente el modelo y año que contempla estas dos opciones, gracias.

Hi Diego!
The GU 2019 frame features a rear disc mount, but the rear hub itself is non-disc so you would need to change the rear hub to allow the use of a disc brake.
I'm not 100% sure about the second part of your question, but if you're asking about a bashplate or bashring, the GU 2019 is fitted with an Echo Urban bashring as standard. It's not possible to fit a bashplate to this frame, but the bashring will protect your freewheel and chain just fine.
If you have any more questions, feel free to ask!

william barents

Hi i am interested in this bike, i am 6'5 and weigh about 100kg, will this bike be able to handle my hight and weight while riding. Please let me know thank you

Posted by william barents

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi William!
Although it has 24" wheels, the GU still has a relatively long frame so in terms of your height you should have no problems.
Similarly, the bike is nice and strong so it can handle almost any weight of rider.
The only thing to note is that there is a more limited selection of tyres available for a 24" bike, so a 26" bike like the Echo Pure MK6 would have a little more flexibility if you wanted to switch to a more reinforced rear tyre in the future. That said, it is possible to fit downhill style 24" tubes to the GU to give the tyre more support should you need to.
If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.


Hi again! :) Yesterday, i asked you about Echo Lite MK6 and my height 1,69/70. And what about this 24" bike? With which do you think I would feel more comfortable? I want to start again with this sport, in my teenage I owned a Monty T219 and Monty Xlite 221, 15/20 years ago... I read some people saying that a 24" gives the best of the other 2 worlds (20" & 26"), what do you think? Which will you choose with 1,69/70 height? Thank you very much

Posted by Diego

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Diego!
At your height I think you will fit well on both, but possibly a little better on the Echo Lite.
In terms of pros and cons, the 24" bikes do offer a nice middle ground, but if you're used to 20" bikes from your past Montys you may find that you're more at home on the Echo.


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

Reply from TartyBikes

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


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

Reply from TartyBikes

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


hello, can you add a snail cam to this bike "24 echo trials 2016"

Posted by bren

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Bren - Snail cams won't work on this bike, sorry. Fortunately the integrated tensioners work really well so you shouldn't need any cams in any case. Thanks, Mark


Is there a disc hub available that would enable me to re-lace the rear wheel for converting this bike to rear disc?

Posted by Ron

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Ron - Yes, any of the disc hubs in our 135mm Fixed category. Thanks.

Jet Lik Ng

Will this bike fits a 163 cm tall person?

Posted by Jet Lik Ng

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Jet - thanks for your question. Yes - this will fit you just fine. Thanks, Flipp.


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

Posted by Torstein

Reply from TartyBikes

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.

Joe Buller

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.

Posted by Joe Buller

Reply from TartyBikes

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.


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

Posted by James

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi James - this bike comes with an 18:14 gear ratio. Thanks, Flipp.

clinton burnett

can a saddle and seat post be added to this spec ?

Posted by clinton burnett

Reply from TartyBikes

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. Thanks, Mark


Can you put a bash guard on this bike.

Posted by Tyler

Reply from TartyBikes

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


if i wanted the back rim grinded before shipping would it cost anything if so i would pay up to 20£

Hello - We have grinding available as a Workshop 'product'. If you search for 010160 on the website it will take you to the page. Thanks, Mark

can you fit a bashguard to this bike? thanks calum

It already has one fitted. Thanks, Adam

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

Reply from TartyBikes

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

Ross Winsor

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

Reply from TartyBikes

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


Can I change the parts on this bike? Thanks.

Posted by Dave

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi - The specification of this bike is completely fixed, you cannot change any of the parts. Thanks, Adam

Nice bike

Posted by Florian

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.

Reply from TartyBikes

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


very nice

Posted by Dylan

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


AMAZING bike for the price.

Posted by Redline06

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.

Reply from TartyBikes

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!



Posted by Daniel

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

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!
