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

Ranjit

Hi Just wanted to begin by saying that I already have MTB experience and can perform trials moves on a MTB. However, I wanted to buy one of ur street trials bikes and I have one question. Will I be able to do trials on the street trials bikes as easily as I can on a MTB or will it feel weird at first. Thx in advance Ranjit

Posted by Ranjit on 03/09/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 04/09/2017

Hi Ranjit - You'll be able to do trials on an Inspired much, much more easily than on your MTB. They have shorter chainstays and a more suitable BB height so if you can do trials moves on your MTB when you get onto a street trials bike you'll be away! Thanks, Mark

Ellis Martin

Would a 13yr-old boy be able to jump high and do pro trials opn this bike or is it to heavy Thanks

Posted by Ellis Martin on 16/03/2015

Reply from TartyBikes on 17/03/2015

Hi Ellis - thanks for your question. It would depend largely on the size of the 13 year old. If he is small or average size then the bike might feel a little cumbersome to start with, though the smaller bikes would be too small. No-one makes a bike between "kids" and "adults" size unfortunately, but he would very quickly grow out of such a bike anyway. The bikes are not the lightest but that is because they are made to be very durable. The weight is not too much of an issue and wouldn't be a reason it can't be ridden well. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

Is this bike suitable for guys who are just starting trials.

Posted by dennis on 20/04/2014

Reply from TartyBikes on 22/04/2014

Hi Dennis - thanks for your question. This is a great bike for beginners who are looking to get into the streetier side of trials riding, and will continue to be a great bike to ride as they progress. It is not the best choice if you are looking to get into the more power-based move, or competition side of trials riding as it is designed with street riding in mind. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

ashley

Would this bike be okay for someone who is 6f 2? As smaller wheels are easier to move around with or would u suggest going for the 26 inch wheel flow?

Posted by ashley on 13/10/2014

Reply from TartyBikes on 13/10/2014

Hi Ashley - thanks for your question. The 24" and 26" would suit you equally well, so if you'd prefer the smaller wheels then go for that! Thanks, Flipp.

Dakota

I live in Canada and I was wondering if I were to get this bike would it be possible for you guys to ship the parts and tools so i can build it and if so would it be any cheaper i just think I can learn more about this specific type of bike

Posted by Dakota on 22/12/2014

Reply from TartyBikes on 22/12/2014

Hi Dakota - thanks for your question. Unfortunately we cannot offer a discount for not setting up the bike prior to dispatch. The bikes arrive to us semi-assembled and we could ship one to you in exactly the state it arrives to us, but we could not offer warranty or support with the bike as we would not have checked it over before it left us. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

Hi Mikey - thanks for your question. We have looked into finance options before and it worked out very expensive for everyone, so we do not offer it. We also cannot offer bikes on the ride to work scheme. Sorry about that! Thanks, Flipp.

Hi Tom - thanks for your question. The 24" Inspired bikes are aimed at riders from around 5' (150cm) upwards. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

Posted by simon on 02/02/2015

Reply from TartyBikes on 02/02/2015

Hi Simon - thanks for your question. No - you cannot fit 20" tyres to this bike. It is tailored specifically to 24". Thanks, Flipp.

tyler

Hi my name it tyler and i was wondering if this bike would be a good bike for bmx and dirt jumping plus trials? Would this be a good bike for me. Also can it do long bike rides?

Posted by tyler on 25/02/2015

Reply from TartyBikes on 26/02/2015

Hi Tyler - thanks for your question. These bikes are designed to be as good an all-rounder as possible. If you will mostly be riding BMX or dirt jumps, then a bike tailored to that type of riding would be better suited, and if you were only wanting to ride trials then a trials bike would handle easier, but if you want to have some fun on all types of riding then these are a really great middleground! The gearing on these bikes would make long bike rides quite impractical. They are designed for acceleration and control, not cruising. The saddle is also very low, so would make all that pedalling uncomfortable. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

Oliver

Hey tartybikes. Im 14 years old and 1.62 meters high. Do you this is A good bike for me. Thank You

Posted by Oliver on 19/03/2015

Hi Oliver - thanks for your question. Yes, this would be the Inspired best suited to you. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

Jake Dominey

Is this bike ok for a 13 year old boy. Can he still do all the tricks and jumps

Posted by Jake Dominey on 21/04/2015

Reply from TartyBikes on 21/04/2015

Hi Jake - thanks for your question. This bike might feel a touch big for an average sized 13 year old, but the smaller 20" bike will already be too small. We usually advise these bikes are suitable for riders 1.5m (5ft) and over. If it does feel a bit big, it will not be long before he has grown into it, which is obviously better than having already grown out of it! Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

Jake Dominey

Is this bike more of a dirt jump bike or is it a trials bike you can jump across rocks on. What bike does Martyn Ashton use and what size tyer and what bike does Danny macascil use and what size tyer

Posted by Jake Dominey on 21/04/2015

Reply from TartyBikes on 21/04/2015

Hi Jake - thanks for your question. These bikes are designed to be as much of an all-rounder as possible. They're great for doing a bit of everything on, but as such are not specialized in any one thing. Martyn Ashton unfortunately no longer rides due to a serious injury. Danny MacAskill rides an Inspired Skye Team with 24" x 2.4" tyres. Thanks, Flipp.

Jake Dominey

What bike is better for trials riding the inspired 24 or the rip which one would u reccomend

Posted by Jake Dominey on 21/04/2015

Reply from TartyBikes on 22/04/2015

Hi Jake - that depends on the style of riding you want to do. If you want to ride competitions or a more traditional style of trials, the Rip will likely be better suited to you, though if you want to ride street trials like Danny MacAskill or Ali C then you would be better off with the Inspired. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

Kai

I am around 4 ft 6 in. Would this bike be better for me or would the Flow 20" fit me better?

Posted by Kai on 02/08/2015

Reply from TartyBikes on 03/08/2015

Hi Kai - thanks for your question. At your current height, the 20" would suit you better. The 24" bikes feel a little too big for people under 5ft. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

Cameron rogers

can this bike be painted in any other color eg red or black and how much would it cost if u can?

Posted by Cameron rogers on 02/08/2015

Reply from TartyBikes on 03/08/2015

Hi Cameron - thanks for your question. The bikes are only available as standard in the pictured colour scheme. If you wanted to paint it yourself after buying it, please note that this would invalidate the warranty. The price would vary on how you did it - buying cans of spray paint would be the cheapest way, where getting it professionally sprayed/powdercoated can be quite expensive. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

Dec Marsden

hey! Thinking of getting one off you in a few weeks! What psi would you recommend for riding this on the streets and off some drops up to a metre or so? Thanks in advance

Posted by Dec Marsden on 05/08/2015

Reply from TartyBikes on 07/08/2015

Hi Dec - thanks for your question. You should run whatever pressure feels comfortable for you. Some people prefer softer tyres, and some prefer firmer. For a bike of this style, around 25-30psi is a good starting point, and then experiment from there. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

Can you fit a bash plate too this particular model?

Hi James - You can't fit a bash plate to this bike, sorry, you can only use a bashring similar to the one fitted to the bike as standard. These tend to do the job pretty well though! Thanks, Mark

claude

dear tartybikes, i would love to dive into this awesome sport and get into the basic tricks which danny macaskill is doing. So, i´m 40yrs young beginner, 1,80meter tall, about 100kg. Would this bike be sizewise o.k. and robust enough for me? or would you suggest another bike from "inspired"? thanks.

Posted by claude on 01/10/2015

Reply from TartyBikes on 02/10/2015

Hi Claude - Thanks for getting in touch! It sounds like the Flow 24" would tick all the right boxes for you. The Flow frame and fork are almost identical to the ones Danny MacAskill rides in the Inspired Bicycles April 2009 video so are definitely proven to be strong enough and have the right kind of geometry to allow you to do those moves. The components specced on the rest of the bike are also nice and durable, so as long as you keep on top of minor jobs like making sure the bolts and so on are kept nice and tight I don't think you'd have any problems. For your height the bike should be a good fit too. I'm a similar height and ride one of the Inspired 24" bikes and it feels comfortable to me. If you've got any more questions, feel free to ask away! Thanks, Mark

Would this bike fit someone 6ft4''?

Posted by julien on 01/11/2015

Reply from TartyBikes on 02/11/2015

Hi Julien - This bike should fit your reasonably well, although if you found it felt a little cramped you could easily change the standard 90mm stem for something like a 110mm stem which would make the front end of the bike a little roomier. Thanks, Mark

Justin Lackner

Hey I was just wondering if it is possible to fit a front disc brake on this bike?

Posted by Justin Lackner on 12/01/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 12/01/2016

Hi Justin - Fitting a front or rear disc brake to this bike would be no problem thanks to it being fitted with a disc mount on the frame, fork and hubs as standard. You would simply need to choose the disc brake you'd like then bolt it on. Thanks, Mark

Mark

Hi guys... I'm looking to upgrade the hubs (hope pro evo 2) front and rear also I'm looking to buy hope x2 brakes but the issue I have is on my 2015 flow (purple) before I buy all that I need to know if it is possible to "adapt" the rear to disc brake by buying an adaptor and the rear disc hub i don't know if this would be possible but I have seen others try this on mountain bikes but the frame on a trials bike is specialised so i don't really know if that would work Or would I have to buy a new bike to get duel disc? Cheers guys

Posted by Mark on 14/01/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 15/01/2016

Hi Mark - Unfortunately it's not really possible to use an adaptor to make the previous generation of Flow frame disc compatible. I have seen a few different adaptors/conversions in the past, but they tend to be for mountain bike usage and I don't think they'd stand up to the stresses that trials puts through the rear brake. Unfortunately, you would need to buy a new frame and rear hub to run a rear disc on your Flow. Regarding the X2 brakes, they are more of an XC brake rather than a trials brake, so are lacking power a little. The piston size is 12% smaller than Hope's trials-orientated brakes, and the caliper itself has less reinforcement/stiffness so there would be more flex. Thanks, Mark

gideon

hey! do the flow 24 standard rims have disk mounts?

Posted by gideon on 07/02/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 08/02/2016

Hi Gideon - The hubs, frame and fork on the Flow 24" bike are all disc ready so if you wished to fit disc brakes, all you'd need to do would be to buy the brakes of your choice then bolt them on. You wouldn't need to replace any of the major components of the bike to fit them. Thanks, Mark

Justin Lackner

The Avid BB5 brake upgrade is it a rear or the front brake

Posted by Justin Lackner on 22/02/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 23/02/2016

Hi Justin - It is for both brakes. Thanks, Mark

Matt

what hydraulic disk brake upgrade would you recommend

Posted by Matt on 06/03/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 07/03/2016

Hi Matt - As brakes are a key part of a trials bike, we try to ensure we don't stock any that we don't feel are up to the job. As a result, fitting any of the ones on our site to the Flow would be a noticeable improvement over the standard V-Brakes! The Shimano SLX brakes are a great value for money option that provide a lot of power, although they don't have much adjustment. At the other end of the scale, the Hope Tech 3 Trial Zone and Magura MT7 brakes also have plenty of power, but also give you independent bite point and reach adjustment. The Shimano and Hope brakes are supplied without adaptors and rotors, so you'd also need to add them to your basket too. 180mm front and rear is the ideal size for 24" bikes. For adaptors, the 'Type F' Hope adaptors (Quick find code: 010773) are the correct model for the Flows. If you've got any more questions, feel free to ask! Thanks, Mark

Is this bike good for a 12 year old boy who weighs 40 kg and is 160cm tall?

Posted by Malte on 27/06/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 28/06/2016

Hi Malte - 160cm is at the lower end of the height range for the Flow. If the bike felt a little long it would be possible to fit a shorter stem and bar to the bike to make it a little shorter, so that may help customise the fit of the bike to suit. Thanks, Mark

Ron

Hello guys, I plan to order this bike and upgrade it straight away with dual hydraulic brakes. I would like to order the Hope Tech 3 Trial Zone (front + rear) from your shop. But first i need to know if : 1- I need an adaptor or new rotors? 2- The original headset allows the hose to routed through the fork tube? Thank you for your answers.

Posted by Ian on 01/11/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 02/11/2016

Hi Ian - You would be able to re-use the existing adaptors from the BB5 brakes fitted to the bike, but I would recommend some Trial Zone V2 rotors to go with your new brakes as they have the right depth braking surface on them to match the bigger pad size on the Trial Zone calipers. The Avid rotors are a little narrower, so won't offer the same power. With the standard top cap on the Flow forks it's not possible to route your front brake hose through the steerer tube unfortunately. You would need a headlock kit to do this, but unfortunately the Inspired model which would be suitable is out of stock and isn't scheduled to be available again for a little while. Thanks, Mark

Harry McGarvie

Hi. What would be needed in order to allow the front brake cable to be run through the stem, and then down through and out of the headtube to the brake calliper (in order to allow bar spins/tail whips etc.)? I'm hoping to buy a Flow soon once I get the money! Thanks, Harry

Posted by Harry McGarvie on 13/04/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 13/04/2017

Hi Harry - You would need the Inspired Headlock V2 to achieve this. Due to the steerer tube design, this is the only type of top cap/headlock system that would work. Thanks, Mark

I am looking at getting into the streety side of trials riding. I am 12 and a mountain biker. At the moment I have a BMX but I think a 24 trials bike would be better. My obvious choice bike would be the Inspired flow 24, but after looking, the Onza zoot could be on the cards. Which one do you think would be better for me? James

Posted by James on 14/08/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 14/08/2017

Hi James - If you're looking to do more streety-style trials riding, I think the Flow would be a little better suited than the Zoot. Compared to the Zoot it has shorter chainstays (which improve handling on the back wheel, and help give the bike a bit more 'pop' for bunnyhops), a slightly lower BB which again helps for street riding, and a few other tweaks such as a shorter stem which improves it's ability to spin and do front wheel tricks. The Inspired frame and fork are also a bit tougher too. That said, the Zoot is still a great way to get into street trials, so if you can't stretch to the Flow then it would still be a good starting point. Thanks, Mark

Duncan Burnside

A few questions What is the maximum height? Is there a weight limit? Is it ok for beginners?

Posted by Duncan Burnside on 28/08/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 29/08/2017

Hi Duncan - There's no maximum height for this bike. We have seen riders nearer 6ft 6in/2.0m tall riding these bikes so there shouldn't be a problem. If you are very tall a longer stem can be fitted but the bike should still ride well. There is no weight limit to these bikes as they're built to be very tough. The Flow and Flow Plus were designed to be a good stepping stone into the world of street trials, so if you're just starting out it should suit you well. Thanks, Mark

Max

Is this bike suitable for a young where is 166cm tall?

Posted by Max on 06/09/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 07/09/2017

Hi Max - This bike should be suitable for someone at 166cm tall. The Flow 20" is recommended for 120-150cm, with the Flow 24" recommended for people 150cm+, so you should fit fine. There is no real upper limit to the height range for their 24" bikes - we know riders who are around 200cm tall who ride them. Thanks, Mark

Is this bike suitable for a 5feet 5inches tall boy? And how much pound does this bicycle hold?

Posted by maxii on 08/09/2017

Hi Max - This bike should fit you fine as Inspired recommend it for riders 5ft and above. There is no weight limit on this bike. Thanks, Mark

Gaege

Do you know if the brakes on the flow are hydraulic or not?

Posted by Gaege on 16/09/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 18/09/2017

Hi Gaege - The standard brakes on the Flow are cable operated V-Brakes. There are optional upgrades to cable operated disc brakes or hydraulic disc brakes too. Thanks, Mark

Gaege

Does the Inspired flow have an aluminum frame???

Posted by Gaege on 16/09/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 18/09/2017

Hi Gaege - The Flow uses an aluminium frame and fork. Thanks, Mark

Max

Hello, is this bike suitable for higher Drops like 2 meters, or havier tricks like 360, higher jumps, Manual, wheelie etc...And is the Frame stable enough, and are the breakes good?

Posted by Max on 17/09/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 18/09/2017

Hi Max - The Flow is a tough little bike so should be able to handle big moves fairly easily. If you're doing larger scale riding, the upgrade to disc brakes over the standard V-Brakes would be a good idea. The standard V-Brakes are up to the job for getting you into riding and improving your skills, but for advanced riding you may find the upgraded brakes give a bit more confidence. Thanks, Mark

Hi can you get this bike as just frame and forks

Hi Tom - Unfortunately, the Flow isn't available as a frame kit. Sorry! Thanks, Mark

how is this bike different from the inspired fourplay pro? is this bike okay for rough terrain like dirt BMX bumps? can this bike do footjam tail whips and wheelies or manuals and other tricks like that well? thanks

Posted by me on 06/10/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 06/10/2017

Hello - The only thing the Flow really shares with the Fourplay Pro is that they both have 24" wheels. The Fourplay has an upgraded spec all round, is stronger and lighter. The Flow is still a great way to get into trials, and is designed to be tough too, so if you're looking for your first street trials bike then this could be a good value option. The Flow should handle dirt jumps well, although as with the Fourplay it doesn't have suspension so rougher trails might not be quite so nice on it. It's possible to do the tricks you've mentioned on the Flow, although I'd recommend getting an Inspired Headlock V2 for it so you can run the front brake cable through the steerer tube - this will make multiple footjam whips possible as it'll stop your brake binding up. Thanks, Mark

Luke

I currently have a 20" trials bike and was wanting to get into street trials. I was just wondering if the 24" bikes will feel similar and I will be able to transfer the tricks I have learned on the 20" to the 24"

Posted by Luke on 13/10/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 16/10/2017

Hi Luke - No other bikes really feel much like a 20" trials bike just because of how specialised they are. You can still transfer the tricks you've got on your 20" onto your 24" though, although you may find you need to adapt some techniques ever so slightly just due to the different geometry. Having those trials skills already should give you a great head start to learning street trials moves! Thanks, Mark

Paddy

I have a question on returning if it is not the right size or never used due to breaking a leg or something like that (which is my current case, not with tarty) what is your return policy

Posted by Paddy on 14/10/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 16/10/2017

Hi Paddy - Our full returns policy is available here: https://www.tartybikes.co.uk/pages/terms_and_conditions.html#returns To summarise though, as long as the bike is still in brand-new, un-used condition then returning it should be no problem. Thanks, Mark

Cerise

Hello. I just want to ask that is this bike going to be a good size for a 168cm hight person? Thanks a lot.

Posted by Cerise on 15/10/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 16/10/2017

Hi Cerise - This bike should fit you well. The Flow 24" is recommended for riders from 150cm and upwards so covers you nicely. Thanks, Mark

Solomon B-F

I'm 150cm tall, and I have been thinking into getting into trial biking, would this be a good size bike ? Also do you have a rough idea of whet gear this bike would be on compared to a normal bike ? thanks for your time, Solomon

Posted by Solomon B-F on 25/10/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 26/10/2017

Hi Solomon - Inspired recommend the Flow for riders over 1.50m, so you'll be towards the lower end of the sizing range for it but should get to grips with it! In terms of gearing, it would probably be equivalent to the smallest chainring up front with one of the middle gears on the rear (the actual ratio is 22:16, but the smaller wheel size effectively makes the gear ratio feel a little different). Thanks, Mark

Chris

Would you be able to run a larger front chainring, say up to 36t?

Posted by Chris on 30/10/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 31/10/2017

Hi Chris - Unfortunately, we don't think that would work on the Flow, sorry. The Flow has relatively short chainstays, and in turn that means that clearance becomes tricky as there's basically less room to play with to make sure that the frame clears a large tyre. As such they're designed around a 22t front chainring, so fitting a 36t ring might be problematic. Sorry!

Keir

I was just wondering if it has the very easy peddling like first gear on a mountain bike Keir

Posted by Keir on 09/11/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 10/11/2017

Hi Keir - The gearing would be the equivalent of the smallest chainring at the front on a mountain bike, with a gear from around the middle of the cassette on the rear. It's fairly light so it makes it ideal for trials, but also allows you to pick up speed for streety moves too! Thanks, Mark

keir

is it possible to make the bike into a lower gear

Posted by keir on 17/11/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 20/11/2017

Hi Keir - If you wanted to make the gearing lower you could fit an 18t freewheel to the rear rather than a 16t which is fitted as standard. To make the gearing higher your options are more limited unfortunately. You may be able to increase the chainring size to a 24t without having clearance issues, but you aren't able to get a freewheel smaller than 16t. Thanks, Mark

Dylan

Hi. Just wanted to know what is the difference between the Normal Yellow Flow 24 and the upgraded version?

Posted by Dylan on 18/11/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 20/11/2017

Hi Dylan - The Flow Plus features upgraded alloy forks, upgraded Truvativ bars, upgraded Truvativ crankset, Maxxis Holy Roller tyres, metal platform pedals and disc brakes as standard. You get quite a lot more bike for your money! Thanks, Mark

Keir

Does it come with the disc brakes

Posted by Keir on 12/12/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 13/12/2017

Hi Keir - The Flow, as standard, comes with V-Brakes. Disc brakes can be added as an upgrade at the Checkout. Thanks, Mark

Frank Hutton

Hi, I have an Inspired Element (not sure which model but it is yellow and has a rear v-brake and front cable-disc brake) and I was wondering if I could put a disc brake on the rear (as the braking is terrible and is holding me back). It has two bolt holes near the rear hub which look as if I could put a rear disc on but they are quite small in diameter. If so what would be the adapter I need? I know the rear wheel can mount a rotor. Thanks very much, Frank

Posted by Frank Hutton on 25/12/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 26/12/2017

Hi Frank - If you have the yellow Element then it's not possible to fit a rear disc, sorry. The two holes on the dropout are there because the Element frame uses a standard factory dropout - the holes would typically be used for a mudguard or rack. Although there are V-Brake to Disc Brake adaptors on the market, none of them are suitable for trials use, and the frame wouldn't be likely to handle it too well as trials frames tend to be beefed up a lot around the disc mount area. Thanks, Mark

Justo

Hi there! I'm 1.85m (6.069554 ft) tall, will this frame be comfortable in me?

Posted by Justo on 30/12/2017

Hello - This bike should fit you well. I'm around your height and also ride an Inspired and find I don't have a problem with the fit of mine. If you did find it a little cramped, changing to a longer stem is a cheap and easy option that'll help customise the fit of the bike to suit you. Thanks, Mark

Benjamin

Hi my question is, what is the difference between the flow 24 an the flow 24 plus

Posted by Benjamin on 01/01/2018

Reply from TartyBikes on 02/01/2018

Hi Benjamin - The Flow Plus features disc brakes as standard, upgraded alloy forks, an upgraded crankset and upgraded tyres (as well as a few other little tweaks here and there). The frame is the same between the two bikes, but the specification of the rest of the parts is upgraded on the Flow Plus. Thanks, Mark

Victor

Hello! I'm thinking of getting in to trials. Do you think a pair of SHIMANO BR-M506 would work well on this bike? I have a pair at home. And in that case what brake disks would you recommend and would i need any adoptors? Thanks, Victor

Posted by Victor on 04/01/2018

Reply from TartyBikes on 05/01/2018

Hi Victor - Those brakes would be a step up from the standard V-Brakes, but that particular model of Shimano brake might feel a little under-powered. That particular caliper also has quite a lot of "pad knock", which is where the pads shift around a little in the caliper in use. If you did want to try them, some 180mm Shimano SLX rotors and the relevant Hope or Magura IS Frame/Fork to Post Mount Caliper adaptors would do the trick. In all honesty, what may be more cost effective is to go for the Avid BB5 cable upgrade option on the Flow if you purchase one. The BB5 brakes work really well, but if you wanted to switch to your Shimano brakes you could simply re-use the standard Avid rotors and adaptors. This would work out about the same price as just buying some extra rotors and adaptors yourself, but you'd end up with some spare brakes should you need them. Thanks, Mark

Joel Neumann

What does the upgrade to disc brakes cost? And can you send it to germany?

Posted by Joel Neumann on 06/01/2018

Reply from TartyBikes on 08/01/2018

Hi Joel - The Upgrade cost is £75. Shipping to Germany would be no problem (we ship internationally every day, using FedEx Priority or Economy shipping), although at present we're out of stock of Flows. We expect more in February, so I'd suggest setting up a stock reminder on the product page so you will be informed as soon as they're in stock. They tend to sell out very quickly! Thanks, Mark

Hey is the bike ever gonna be in other colors? And is there a cheaper beginner trials bike for street?

Posted by Sebastian on 15/01/2018

Reply from TartyBikes on 16/01/2018

Hi Sebastian - The Flow has only just been released in this colour so although we expect in the future it will change, we don't think it'll be any time soon. This is the cheapest street trials bike available - Onza used to make the Zoot complete bike, but that has recently been discontinued sorry! Thanks, Mark

Manny Ray

I noticed on all the inspired bikes the front brake is on right. is it for left handed people or for better routing?

Posted by Manny Ray on 30/05/2014

Reply from TartyBikes on 30/05/2014

Hi Manny - thanks for your question. That is just how brakes are set up in England. We are an English shop so we set the brakes up the way the majority of our customers would have them. If you have your brakes the other way around like most of Europe, we can change them over before sending the bike out with no problems. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

Geniy Kryvoshey

Hi, i've never been in trials and i'm really looking forward to get into it, so i think it's better to buy something for starters like me :) and i would like to know if it's better to start with onza zoot 24" 2013 or with this Inspired. I'd like to have some advice because there is a difference in price between them ... please help me .

Posted by Geniy Kryvoshey on 19/08/2014

Reply from TartyBikes on 20/08/2014

Hi Geniy - thanks for your question. Both bikes are great entry points into trials, though they are aimed at slightly different types of riding so which to get depends on how you want to ride. Both are intended to be a compromise between regular trials and street trials, but the Flow is slightly more inclined toward the street side so has the slight edge for bunnyhops and spins where the Zoot is slightly more hopping friendly so is slightly easier to sidehop and gap etc. It is quite a close call and both will allow you to do anything you want, but one will give a slight advantage over the other in each aspect of riding. Hope that helps! Thanks, Flipp.

Posted by kiran rule on 12/03/2015

Reply from TartyBikes on 13/03/2015

Hi Kiran - thanks for your question. This would be just fine for you, though the Inspired bikes are aimed at the streetier side of trials. If you mostly ride natural terrain or competitions, you might be more comfortable on a bike designed with that in mind. That's not to say you can't ride competitions on a bike like this though - it's just the trend of what people seem to prefer. Thanks, Flipp.

Christian Møllerop

Hi, Can you regulate the height of the saddle on this bike?

Posted by Christian Møllerop on 30/07/2015

Reply from TartyBikes on 31/07/2015

Hi Christian - thanks for your question. Yes, the bike is fitted with a 110mm seat post, so the saddle can be raised a little if desired. The saddle and post are integrated, so if you wanted to make the seat higher than this post can allow you would need to change the saddle and post for a longer one together. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

Christian Møllerop

So would a 110mm seat post be enough, if you would like to sit on the saddle without touching the back wheel?

Posted by Christian Møllerop on 31/07/2015

Reply from TartyBikes on 31/07/2015

Hi Christian - thanks for your question. The highest position would definitely be high enough to sit on without touching the back wheel, but would not be high enough to comfortably sit down and pedal. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

Hello, I am 14 years old, I have 164cm(I'm still growing) and have 45 kg...... Which bike should I get; ECHO TRIAL MK5 or INSPIRED FLOW 24" 2017.... Which one can jump higher and farder? Tnx

Posted by Kiki on 13/05/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 15/05/2017

Hi Kiki - The Echo Trial and the Inspired Flow are two different styles of bike, so the best one for you would depend on what you're hoping to ride. The Echo is more suited to riding natural terrain or competitions, whereas the Inspired is more suited to street trials riding (similar to how Danny MacAskill, Ali Clarkson, Fabio Wibmer, etc. ride). Both are great bikes so you should be able to learn to ride well on either! I think in terms of size you might fit the Inspired a little better, but with a slightly shorter stem the Echo could work too. Thanks, Mark

Posted by Justin on 28/01/2016

Went ahead and purchased this bike early January and I think it's the second best decision I've made. The best being to buy from Tarty Bikes. I went ahead and fitted front and rear discs to the bike on day one, so I can't comment on what the standard brakes are like, but the rest of the bike is a dream to ride. The build quality is superb and everything feels so tight and planted underneath you. Really couldn't recommend this bike enough. Whichever bike you do decide to buy from here you can rest easy knowing what a team you have supplying it. Very quick response times, very informative, just uber efficient. Really, really top job and I'm super stoked with everything!

Good package with a few flaws

Posted by Lukas on 17/09/2017

Bought this bike for me early this year when it was a bit more expensive and it still had alu forks. Recently I picked up the current Flow for my brother. Good things first. Most expensive but worth it, the frame. The quality is superb. It´s very stiff, plenty light and the finish looks good. It has proper welds and a balanced geometry. The alu fork as well as the newer steel one are both equal stiffness wise with only a slight weight penelty. They have a little give to them which is nice. Another part you can only say good things about are the wheels. After month of riding they are still true, no dends and spoke tention is good. No problem with the hubs either. The cockpit is solid except of the grips. They are probably as comfortable to your hands like a handlebar wraped in skateboard griptape. I would like to see a bar with a little bit more rise but that´s personal preference. There are some downsides too. You notice most of the money your spending goes into the frame and wheels because there are some parts that are not quite up for the job. E.g. the brakes. They´re extremly loud and braking is definitely not their strength. I could see over lacking modulation but the end bite isn´t there either. So updating them with the grips is a must. I´m a bit biased about the trialtech freehub. The one on the newer bike worked flawless from the beginning. Unfortunatly on my first Flow even after lots of hours bedding it in like mentioned on the website it still skips like once every ride which is not only annoying but can get dangerous. The squaretapered bb and cranks work for a lighter person but as I´m a big guy (~95kg), I managed to bend them quite easily. So they need replacement. In the end it´s a good package for the money but if you really want a fit and forget bike, spend a bit more on the Flow Plus. Either way you will progress your riding with the Flow. (This review was longer but sadly I reached the character max.)
