- All the attention to detail of the previous model, but with a few tweaks to the frame construction and geometry and a fresh colour!
- Revised seat stay-to-seat tube joining method and added support bridge between the seatstays increases stiffness and strength of this high-stress area.
- The middle of the frame is further stiffened by a revised chain stay-to-bottom bracket joint, featuring an extra support gusset.
- Very slightly longer dropouts means you can now use either a 15T or 16T sprocket on the rear.

- We can send the bikes with the hose through the steerer if you like, please also purchase the correct model disc brake option of this Workshop Item if you would like the hose to be routed through the steerer.

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.

Please note that the specification on the bike may occasionally vary slightly from the photos and description. If this happens then the overall effect will be an upgrade and it will not affect the cosmetic appearance of the bike drastically.

Questions

Vitaly

Hi guys I am looking for gear ratio more close to 2:1. For example, would it be possible to have 15t sprocket (inspired site says it is available in Arcade Pro) and 28t bashring such as this: https://www.sourcebmx.com/collections/bmx-sprockets/products/wethepeople-pathfinder-guard-sprocket?loc=gb&lang=en&cur=gbp I would consider other options...

Hi Vitaly!
Due to the clearance of the sprocket to chainstay, you wouldn't be able to go bigger than 22t at the front on the Arcade.
On the Team bike, you could drop the rear sprocket size down as low as 12t as there are splined sprockets available to fit the Hope Pro 4 Trials/SS rear hub in that size, but we're not sure how that would work out for chain tension. The dropouts are fairly short on the Arcade so you don't have much room to adjust, meaning you ma need to use a half link to get suitable chain tension - something we don't typically recommend for trials use. 22:12 works out as being a very similar ratio to 28:15 (1.833:1 and 1.866:1 respectively).
That said, if you are planning on riding trials on the Arcade this gear ratio won't work well. The Arcade used to be supplied with 22:15, but due to rider feedback that got changed to 22:16 as 22:15 is a little bit on the hard side for doing more trials-orientated, static style moves.
Hopefully this helps - if you have any more questions, feel free to ask.

Hi Vitaly!
The Arcade weight is 11.74kg. To check the weight and specs of the bike, please click the 'Read More' button on the product description. You'll find that info nearer the bottom of the spec list.
If you have any more questions, feel free to ask!

re Inspired Arcade Team How long is the seat post? and how far up I could have it fixed? I am 6'5'' tall and I'd like to be able to spin seated.

Posted by Vitaly

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Vitaly!
The post fitted to the Team spec Inspired bikes across their range is the Inspired Tripod post which is relatively short - probably too short to realistically be able to pedal sitting down.
Your best option if you'd like to achieve this would be the Gusset Long Pivotal Post along with the Pivotal Saddle of your choice.
As far as we're aware no-one makes a long version of the Tripod unfortunately.
If you have any more questions, feel free to ask!

Hey guys! Ive never owned a trials bike, and I am saving up for my first one. Im around five foot eleven inches, looking for the best bike for me. I currently ride a 26 Iron Horse hard tail mountain bike. Its fun and all, but I want to get more serious with trials riding. I would like to stick to 26s if possible, but would also be fine with a 24. Also, I live in the United States - do you guys ship here? Thanks a lot, :)

Hello!
At 5ft 11in, you would fit any of the Inspired range perfectly so you have a wide selection of bikes to choose from!
If you're looking to stick with 26" then the Hex Pro or Hex Team bikes would be the best option for you. They're a little more trials-orientated than the rest of Inspired's range though, so if you'd prefer to open up some more streety options then the Arcade or Fourplay would be better for you. The Fourplay sits between the Arcade and the Hex, with the Hex more on the trials side and the Arcade more of the street/BMX side. It just comes down to which style of riding you're most interested in, and which model will fit your budget best. The Pro spec bikes are great to ride straight out of the box, with the Team spec bikes essentially coming fitted with the upgrades most riders tend to fit to the Pro spec bikes as they go.
If the Pro spec bikes are still out of your price range, then the Flow or Flow Plus bikes would do the job nicely too. They're based around a solid framekit so you'll have a great platform to work with.
In terms of shipping, getting bikes and parts to the US is no problem at all - we send multiple orders to the US every day, and thanks to how fast FedEx are we can get parts orders shipped to you so they'll arrive the next working day using their Priority service! For bikes there is a little delay as they are all sent through our workshop and built up prior to being shipped. If you'd like to check prices for shipping, simply add a bike to your basket then click the 'View Basket' button. Our website will calculate shipping options for you and display prices and shipping time estimates.
Lastly, you don't just need to take our word for our international shipping - we have some Testimonials here.
If you have any more questions, feel free to ask! If you're also open to more competition-style seatless trials bikes then feel free to shoot us a message and we can give you some options for that type of bike too.

Hey, I'm 5 ft 8, would the arcade be a good fit or would I be better off going with the fourplay?

Posted by Declan

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Declan!
For your height you could realistically ride either bike fine. You'd be slightly more towards the lower end of the recommended height for the Arcade than the Fourplay, but still comfortably in the middle of the recommended range in any case (you can see the chart here).
The Arcade and Fourplay are designed with slightly different styles of riding in mind, so that may help you make up your mind. The Arcade is aimed slightly more towards a streety/BMX-y style of riding (which is why it is made of steel and features BMX cranks), whereas the Fourplay is a little more trials orientated.
They are both still capable of being ridden in either style, but if you know you have a preference more towards one style than the other it may help you choose.
If you have any more questions, feel free to ask!

How do I know the bike will fit me and and if it doesnt fit can I return it

Posted by Will Swope

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Will!
If you let us know some more info about you we can help work out which size bike will fit you and which won't. The Inspired bikes tend to have a fairly broad sizing range (you can see the rough sizing that Inspired provide here), and the fit can be customised by changing the stem to a longer or shorter model, but as before, if you'd like to send us some information about yourself we'll do our best to help.
Providing the bike is unused and still in brand new condition you're welcome to return it to us, although you will be liable to pay the cost of sending it back to us. You can find our full T's & C's for returns here.

Hi, are the bars the same as the Arcade Riser Bars, which i can order separately? The bars on the team arcade seem like much higher rise than the Arcade Riser Bars (apr. 105mm rise)

Posted by Jonas

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Jonas!
The bars fitted to the Team spec bikes are the exact same bars as the aftermarket Inspired Arcade Risers.
They are all supplied from the same batch of bars, so whether they come on a complete bike or as a separate bar they'll be the same spec.

Frank Hutton

Are the horizontal dropouts on the Arcade easy to use with the disc brakes? I really have issues stopping the brakes from rubbing on my ecco with the horizontal dropouts. If I would have similar issues with the Arcade I'd rather have a hex or fourplay with the vertical dropouts. Thanks

Posted by Frank Hutton

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Frank!
Several of the guys here have had the Arcade for a reasonable period of time now and haven't had issues with brake setup on them. They can be a little trickier to set up at first, but once everything is in place they work fine.
If you're having problems with your Echo that would suggest the wheel was moving. If that's the case, cleaning up the axle bolt threads and the threads inside the hub, then re-fitting your axle bolts with plenty of grease should help torque the hub up enough to stop it moving. The chain tensioners work well on the Echo so they should help you get everything lined up well in the first place.

Arcade Review

Posted by James

I have had my arcade for about 7 months now and i thought i would add my opinion on it. I dont think i can overstate how much fun this bike is i got back in to trials after a long time away and started riding a more compy bike but never really felt supper comfortable i did my research and got an arcade and haven't looked back. the frame has a lot of nice deign features like the tidy chain tugs and discrete seat clamp the welds also look immaculate on arrival final assembly was simple thanks to tarty building it up before shipping. rolling bunny hops at speed at rocks and walls feels liberating after having to rely on pedal ups on the old bike i have even been to a few skate parks and had fun carving around the bowls etc which i could never of imagined with my old bike and the arcade feels perfectly capable of more trialsy riding "ive put a slightly longer stem on mine but i am 6'4" " the steel frame seems to be a lot more resilient to dents than an alu frame which is a bonus to. If i got home and it was gone i would buy one again

Hi James!
Thanks for the detailed review. It's great to hear you're enjoying your Arcade so much.
Hopefully you'll get a lot more fun out of it on rides to come!

outstanding

Posted by Jack

i don't know where to start. I purchased this bike last week. Delivery was on time and I got an email saying exactly when the bike will be here. The bike came neatly packed into a box with loads of protection around it to stop any damage. When opening the bike it was very easy to build. After riding for a few hours today I'm in love with the bike. I've been through about 4 inspired bikes now including the old Skye and this bike is by far the best bike I've ridden. It's so smooth to ride and looks smart as well. The bike is flawless. I would recommend the bike to anybody. Beginner or pro this bike is made for every level. The bikes colour is very unique and different making the bike stand out from the crowd. Great service from tartybikes as usual. This bike is a MUST buy if your looking to buy an inspired bicycle
