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.



Hello Tarty I would like to swap my rear hub for a HOPE PRO 4 TRIALS / SS would that be possible? If so, which other parts would I need except the hub? Thanks in advance

Posted by Markus

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Markus!
That would be possible, but you'll need a few extra parts:
A 16t Splined Sprocket (we recommend the Trialtech Sport or Gusset DoubleSix).
A cassette lockring. A new set of 24" Spokes.

You should be able to re-use your existing rim, rim tape, tube and tyre, so getting these bits along with your new rear hub would give you the bits you'd need to re-build your back wheel with the Hope hub laced into it.
Hopefully this helps - if you have any more questions, please ask.

Anton Bugge

Is it possible to change the rear sprocket to a 12T for example if the gearing is a bit low for getting from spot to spot? In the description, it looks like the sprocket is part of the freehub. "Freewheel: Trialtech 16T, 72-click (upgrade over the standard Flow mode" Any help would be appreciated, have a nice day!.

Posted by Anton Bugge

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Anton!
Due to the Flow Plus using a rear hub that requires a screw-on freewheel, it wouldn't be possible to lower the gearing without using a totally different rear hub (specifically the Hope Pro 4 Trials/SS Rear Hub fitted to the Team spec Inspired bikes). The hub uses a standard freewheel thread size, so 16t is the lowest it's possible to go as standard. There are 14t freewheels available but they require the smaller BMX-specific 'micro drive' thread standard.
In terms of getting spot to spot, street trials bikes aren't as fast as a BMX or mountain bike but aren't much of a problem. A lot of people interested in getting hold of one of these bikes tend to be concerned about going from A to B on them, but when they get hold of a bike and start riding it realise it isn't an issue. As an example, our team rider Ben Travis did a 3 day filming trip in London that involved riding over 26 miles in a day going from spot-to-spot and that was using the standard 22:16 gearing on an Inspired Arcade (you can see more from that trip here).
The other thing to consider with changing the gear ratio is that if you make the gearing too heavy, you greatly reduce the ability to do trials moves on the bike as you lose the instant acceleration/power you need for moves like gaps and other static-based trials moves. Dropping down to something like 22:12 would make any trials-style moves extremely difficult.
Hopefully this helps - if you have any more questions, feel free to ask.

Hello. on my Flow Plus it's time to change the chainring, which chainring do i need and which tools do i need for the change? Thanks

Posted by Luca

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Luca!
To change your chainring, you'll need a Crank Removal Tool and a few allen keys (one for your crank bolt, and one for the chainring bolts).
For the chainring itself, something like the Sunrace Chainring would be an ideal replacement. That said, any 22t chainring with a 64mm BCD would work fine so if you'd prefer a different model then as long as it has those dimensions it should fit absolutely fine.
If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.


Hi TartyBikes, does the Flow fit 26" Wheels? Thanks.

Is this bike good for street and park riding ?

Posted by Chris

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Chris!
The Inspired bikes are aimed at street trials, but due to their geometry and design you can still session skateparks and street on them. The only thing to note is that they have a relatively light gearing (which makes them better for trials moves), so won't give you as much speed as you'd be able to on a dedicated street or park bike.

Hello I need a new chain for my Inspired Flow Plus which one I need? And which tools do I need to disassemble the old chain and mount the new one? Thanks -Josef Schwimmbeck

Posted by Josef Schwimmbeck

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Josef!
We would recommend the KMC Z610 HX 3/32" chain for your bike.
To trim it to length and fit it to your bike, you will need a chain tool like the Icetoolz Standard MTB Chain Tool.
Lastly, if you need help with fitting it, here's a video guide we made that should help!


Hello i am 6.2 feet tall and i would like to know if the size of the frame suits me

Posted by Nondas

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Nondas!
You should fit this bike fine at that height. We know riders of a similar height riding the bike with no problem.
If you found that it felt a little short, you could adjust the fit of the bike by changing handlebars and/or stem. This would be quite easy to do and would allow you to customise the bike to your preferences.
That said, as standard you shouldn't have any issues!


When it comes to assembling my Flow plus, does it come with the recommended torque settings? Or are they at least available online somewhere? Cheers!

Posted by Daniel

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Daniel!
The recommended torque settings aren't supplied with the bike (although some of the torque settings related to the crankset/BB will be in the documentation with it).
For the most part these bikes are pretty tough and won't be quite as sensitive to torque as, say, a high end carbon road bike or mountain bike would be for strength reasons.
We have received these settings from Inspired in the pasts which may be of use to you:
Trialtech stem steerer clamp bolts: 6-8Nm
Trialtech stem handlebar clamp bolts: 5-6Nm
Inspired seat clamp: 3-4Nm
Trialtech pedals: 35-40 Nm
Trialtech hub bolts: 10-12Nm
Please note that these figures are for guidance only. The exact amount required to hold each component securely can vary depending on the condition of the parts, presence of lubricant/thread lock on the threads and any damage that may have occurred to the component, bolt or threads.

As before, they're quite tough little bikes so you shouldn't have any issues provided you aren't going over the top with tightening parts up. The key point to watch out for is if you use the Magura MT4 or MT7 brake upgrades as the bar clamps are different on those to all other brakes levers. On the rear of the bar clamp are two little arrows - the bolt they are pointing at needs to be bottomed out completely, then the tension adjusted using the other bolt. The other bolt only needs to be nipped up. If you evenly tension both bolts (as you would for other levers), the bar clamp will be much more prone to snapping.

Hi! What is the main differencies between flow plus and fourplay pro? Regards

Posted by Eric

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Eric!
The primary difference between the Flow Plus and the Fourplay Pro is the Fourplay frame kit itself.
The Fourplay frame kit is an upgrade from the Flow Plus frame and features things like:
- A tapered head tube and tapered steerer tube fork, which makes the bike stiffer and stronger.
- An integrated sprung chain tensioner.
- A 15mm front through axle that makes the forks and front wheel stiffer.
- The option to run the front brake hose through the steerer tube as it has a threaded top cap.
- A lower overall weight (the complete bike is around 0.6kg lighter) and more strength overall.

A lot of the spec is carried over between the two, such as the bar and stem, crankset and seat/post. However, the Fourplay Pro comes with Magura MT4 hydraulic disc brakes as standard, and also features upgraded Inspired hubs too.
Hopefully this helps - if you have any more questions, feel free to ask!

What about shipping. Is it free or how much does it cost if i live in Russia, Kazan.

Posted by Max Bryzgalov

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Max!
We can ship to Russia, but the customs import limit is too low for us to send a complete bike, sorry!
The limit fluctuates fairly often, so it would be worth checking with your government. We ship parts to Russia using FedEx, so if the limit is raised then getting a bike to you would be no problem.

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Denny!
The Yellow Flow Plus bikes have been discontinued so this isn't possible, sorry. We should have some more stock of the Orange Flow Plus bikes very soon though.
Once they're in stock, you would need to add the bike, an Inspired Headlock V2 and the Inspired Bike Steerer Tube Routing to your basket. Once you go to the Checkout, you will have the option to add the Magura brakes to your basket.
This will mean that you'll have the bike you're looking for! If you have any other problems or need any help, please get in touch.


Hi, I was wondering if the flow plus or the czar ion is a better first street trials bike? I’m new to the sport but would like a bike that can take me pretty far, and can be upgraded easily in the future. Thanks

Posted by Levi

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Levi!
Both the Flow Plus and the Ion would make a great starter bike, so at least you don't have a bad option!
In terms of future upgrades, the Czar is a little more limited. The BB used on the Czar is specific to Czar/Echo, and it also means that you're restricted to certain ISIS cranks. The rear hub also uses a specific spline pattern unique to Czar and their parent company Echo, so again upgrading the rear wheel or changing gear ratio would be difficult.
That said, the Czar is still a great bike and is well suited to street trials straight out of the box. You shouldn't need to change anything (except for more personal items like tyres, grips and pedals, which individual preference will come into play), so the issues of parts being proprietary/unique shouldn't be as problematic.
The Inspired is also a solid bike straight out of the box, so it should also serve you well. There is also the option to upgrade to parts like tapered forks or the mountain bike style cranksets used on the Team spec Inspired bikes.
Overall, either bike would serve you well, and I think you'd have a lot of fun whichever you choose.
If you've got any more questions, feel free to ask!

Daniel S Kleivem

Hi, i have a ECHO TRIAL MK5 and was woundering what the difference between this bike and the ECHO TRIAL MK5. I've been thinking for a while now and can't figure out anything, and i have an Moto Trials backround aswell. Best Regards, Daniel.

Posted by Daniel S Kleivem

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Daniel - The Echo Trial is aimed more at normal/competition style trials riding, whereas the Inspired bikes are aimed more at street trials riding (e.g. the type of riding Danny MacAskill, Fabio Wibmer and Ali Clarkson do). Because of this, there are some key differences to them. The geometry of the bikes are quite a lot different, so on your Echo your weight is biased over the front of the bike thanks to the high BB - on the Inspired bikes, the BB is much lower so your weight is more neutral, making it better for doing street-style tricks on. The parts kits are different, so the Inspired bikes use double wall, un-drilled rims so they hold up to spins and other tricks, rather than the lighter, single walled rims on your Echo for example. The frame and forks are also quite a lot different too. The Echo frame and fork are much lighter, but the Inspired forks are built to be extremely strong so they carry a bit of a weight penalty for this. This isn't to say you can't ride competition style trials on the Inspired and street trials on the Echo, but it will be harder than the other way around. Thanks, Mark

Daniel S Kleiven

Hi, im 1.70m tall and weights 55kg would this bike fit me? And whats the difference between this bike and the Inspired FourPlay PRO. Best Regards, Daniel.

Posted by Daniel S Kleiven

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Daniel - Inspired's 24" and 26" bikes are recommended for anyone over 1.5m tall, so you should be spot on. The primary difference between the Flow Plus and the Fourplay Pro is the Fourplay frame kit. The Fourplay frame and fork are a step above the Flow, and have a few extra features (e.g. the integrated sprung tensioner on the Fourplay vs. the chain tugs on the Flow, the tapered head tube on the Fourplay vs. the regular headtube on the Flow, the 15mm through axle front wheel on the Fourplay vs. the regular, bolt-in front hub on the Flow). The components used on the two bikes are very similar to each other, so it is primarily the frame kit that's different. The Flow Plus is a great bike so if you can't stretch to the Fourplay it will still be more than up to the job of getting you into street trials and learning some fun moves. One of Inspired's team riders (@thomtriboulat on Instagram) rides the Flow Plus and does some impressive riding so they're certainly capable bikes! Thanks, Mark

Martin Weber

Hi Tarty:) I have a few questions about Inspired Flow Plus. First, how much can the bike withstand, so how high can you jump without hesitation, without breaking the frame or fork? My second question is, is it possible to change the frame later for something higher quality like an arcade or a fourplay frame?

Posted by Martin Weber

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Martin - If you check out @thomtriboulat on Instagram you can see some clips of one of Inspired's team riders, Thom, riding a Flow Plus. He does some very big riding on his with no problems. The Flow frame is an evolution of the older generation Fourplay frames (including the Mk1 frame that Danny rode in the April 2009 video), so they're super tough! We haven't seen a customer break one yet. The forks are nice and strong too so you don't need to worry about the framekit, or really any of the other parts on the bike. We don't have any Fourplay or Arcade frames or frame kits in stock so it's not possible to switch the frame, sorry. Thanks, Mark

Peter Eberhard

Hello my question is how can I remove the freewheel from the rear hub?

Posted by Peter Eberhard

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Peter - You would need to use something like the Super B Freewheel Tool we stock (Product code: 2008). Freewheels will be extremely tight due to how they're fitted, so you may find that you need to use a vice (or an adjustable screwdriver fitted with a large extension bar) to be able to get enough torque through the tool to remove it. We've got a video in our 'Media' section that explains how to do it if you need any more help! Thanks, Mark

Harley Collins

Hello, Tartybikes. I have seen the video of "Sam Pilgrim" ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yEFaYYYJH8lk) in which he unpacked his new Inspired Flow Plus. I have noticed that he has a kind of ring on the bottom of the stem but this was not included in my Flow Plus it is possible to buy it separately because the lower part of the stem looks a bit ugly. Thanks in advance -Harley Collins

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Harley - I'm not too sure which piece you mean, sorry! If you can screen shot the particular piece you mean in the video and e-mail it to us at tartybikes@gmail.com we'll look into it for you. The only thing I can think it would be is the top cover for the headset - Sam is using an upgraded headset on his Flow Plus (which allows him to use the Inspired Tapered fork), and the top cover of the headset is a slightly differently shape to the top cover of the normal headset fitted to the Flow Plus. If it is this piece then the only way to use that would be to change the headset on your bike too. Thanks, Mark


Hi there, where do I buy the fork ok it’s own for this bike, and would it fit the normal flow? Thanks George

Alexander Bell

Hi, what is the difference in stopping power between the standard avid brakes and the upgrades? Also would the avid brakes be sufficient for general trials riding? Thanks

Posted by Alexander Bell

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Alex - The standard BB5 brakes fitted to the Flow Plus are fairly powerful, and can certainly handle general trials riding. The main reasons riders upgrade to hydraulic discs are the extra power you can get from them, the reduced maintenance (no need to lube cables and so on), and some riders simply prefer the feel of hydraulic brakes over cable-actuated. The standard BB5s are by no means bad brakes though, and in standard form are powerful and reliable. If you wanted to upgrade your braking performance further down the line, Trialtech make disc pads that are compatible which provide a lot more bite, and similarly there are aftermarket rotors from Magura and Shimano which are compatible with the BB5 caliper which tend to improve the performance of the brakes too. Thanks, Mark

Stewart kettley

I am thinking of getting either the Inspired flow plus 24 or the arcade fuse for my son for Christmas. He has been riding MTB for a while and wants to have a go at street trials. Which of these 2 would be better for him to start out on. He likes the look of the arcade, but only because of the colour! Thanks

Posted by Stewart kettley

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Stewart - Of the 2, the Arcade is the better bike and has arguably got better geometry, but the Flow Plus is still a great bike, and would allow him to get into street trials and progress to a high level without needing to radically change any parts on the bike. The Arcade frame and fork are a little better than the frame/fork on the Flow Plus (which is where the difference in price comes from as they largely share the same spec aside from that), so is a great basis to ugprade on, but again the Flow Plus would still work well. Inspired are well known for making nice, strong frames and speccing parts that compliment them well, so in all honesty you can't really go wrong with any of the bikes in their range. Thanks, Mark

Hello, can I ride my Inspired Flow Plus or the Inspired bikes in general also in winter at low temperatures or when it rains without getting damage issues? Thanks!

Posted by Simon

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Simon - Riding them in low temperatures shouldn't cause any problems. The only thing to be aware of with riding them in the rain is that the chain might become a little rusty if you don't keep it lubed. If you have the Avid BB5 brake option on your bike the cables might need a drop or two of lube from time to time too, although they're generally fairly fit-and-forget. Most other parts of the bike are fairly well sealed so you should be fine! The majority of components are aluminium so wouldn't have any rusting issues. Thanks, Mark

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Ben - The Truvativ Holzfeller or Hussefelt cranks would be a more suitable replacement, and can be found fairly cheaply on eBay or similar. They do a trials specific version with bashring and 22t chainring, as fitted to these bikes as standard. The standard cranks should still allow you to just fit your bashring and chainring fine though. Thanks, Mark

Hey TartyBikes. I was wondering, with the Inspired glow 24" trials bike. When it says "add disc brakes upgrade," does it come with disc brakes if I don't add that upgrade? So if I just buy it with no upgrades, will it still have disc brakes? Thanks! 👍

Posted by Rueben

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Rueben - The Flow Plus comes with cable disc brakes as standard, so if you bought the bike with no upgrades you'd receive it as shown in the images with a pair of BB5 disc brakes. The disc brake upgrades available are for various models of hydraulic disc brakes including the SRAM DB5, Hope Tech 3 Trial Zone and Magura MT7 disc brakes. Hopefully this makes sense! Thanks, Mark


Hello TartyBikes, I see that this model of the Flow has almost identical components to the Inspired Arcade Fuse, however, there is a difference in price of almost 200 pounds, I'm just curious as to why this is the case.

Posted by Yifeng

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Yifeng - The difference is primarily down to the frame kit used on the Arcade bike. The Arcade frame kit alone costs around 75% of the value of the Flow Plus, and with it costing quite a lot more than the Flow Plus frame kit it makes the price of the bike a reasonable chunk higher unfortunately. Thanks, Mark

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Marco - The Flow or Flow Plus should be about the right size for you. We recommend the Flow 20" bike for anyone from 1.20m - 1.50m, so you're out of that size range and into the size recommended for Inspired's 24" range. Either the Flow, Flow Plus or Fourplay would be a good option. If you don't want to spend as much the Flow is a great option, but if you're happy to spend a little more the Flow Plus has some nice upgrades (e.g. a high quality crankset, disc brakes as standard).

Hi Aiden - You certainly can. We ship orders all over the world every day, especially to the US and Canada, so paying for and shipping orders overseas is absolutely fine. Please note that our prices are shown in £GBP - if you'd like to check shipping, simply add the product you're interested in to your basket, then click on the basket icon in the top left corner of the site. This will give you your basket total, including the lowest available shipping price. For full details about international orders you can also check out our FAQ, but hopefully it'll all be fairly intuitive for you as you progress through the website. Thanks, Mark


could you swap this to hydraulic disc brakes?

Posted by JaggedJMH

Reply from TartyBikes

Hello - That's no problem at all. It's possible to do it once you've received the bike, but we also offer an upgrade to SRAM DB5, Hope Tech 3 Trial Zone or Magura MT7 brakes at the Checkout. Thanks, Mark

Hey, just wondering if it is possible to set up the tires to a tubeless setup?

Hi Giordano - We haven't tried it ourselves but it may be possible using a Stans NoTubes style DIY tubeless kit. Thanks, Mark


Hi there, I am 5.375 feet, and was wondering if this bike would fit be well?

Hi Luke - The Flow Plus should be a reasonably good fit for you straight away, although if you find the cockpit is a little too long for you you could easily fit a slightly shorter stem to help reduce the reach of the bike. It's fitted with a 90mm x 35° stem as standard, so dropping to a 70 x 35 or 80 x 40 stem would get the bike feeling a little shorter without compromising how it rides. Thanks, Mark

Will you make some more greens in the near future?

Hello - Unfortunately, the Green colour has been discontinued. Sorry!


hi, i've been having a cheeky gander at the inspired flow plus and i was wondering how you would fit a hydraulic brake setup because the photos show that it is set up for cable only, is this going to be a problem if i would like to fit hydraulic brakes. thanks james.

Hi James - We offer hydraulic brake upgrades for the Flow Plus, so fitting them is no problem. The only slight issue is that due to the cable guides being specced for cable brakes, you will need to ziptie the hose to the top tube, or use stick-on cable guides. This is a minor problem though, and doesn't affect the performance of the brakes or the bike in any way. Thanks, Mark

bridger boyd

hello my name is bridger and i was curious if there is enough cable length to allow the bike to complete either a tailwhip or a bar spin. thank you

Posted by bridger boyd

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Bridger - This is possible, although to make sure your front brake cable is protected I would recommend using an Inspired Headlock System to route it through the fork steerer tube. Thanks, Mark

Craig Mackenzie

Hi, just wondering if it is possible to route the front brake through the top cap? Thanks.

Posted by Craig Mackenzie

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Craig - It's possible, but only if you use the Inspired Headlock Kit with it. Thanks, Mark


Hello, What is the main difference between the flow and the flow plus??

Posted by Jesus

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Jesus - The entire crankset/BB and bar/stem are upgraded compared to the Flow. Thanks, Mark

Love it

Posted by David

Just built and bedded in the brakes on my new 2017 flow plus and I love it , the colour is slightly darker that the picture but I like it even more . Got the stock avid brakes as I'm a beginner and they are good enough to start on . Also had the inspired headlock fitted so I didn't have to try myself later on . Thanks to Adam who I bombarded with questions before I ordered and the people I spoke to on the phone all very helpful ( tarty bikes are the best shop I have ever dealt with ) . Just got to find a quiet place to start riding properly and get used to it . Thank you tarty bikes

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi David - It's great to hear that you like your new bike. The colour does come out a touch darker 'in real life' due to the nature of it being shot in a studio typically, but luckily it looks good in both forms. Thanks for your review - we appreciate the kind words too.


Fantastic bike & service

Posted by Robby

I bought my Flow Plus with in mind to have performance capabilities and not spend a small fortune as I haven't been on the pedals for 7 years. Shortly after receiving the bike I was impressed with the geometry and feel of the bike as well as the quality parts fitted and the color! The bike gives me confidence on the streets and I couldn't have been more pleased to be riding again. Tarty bikes your service was exceptional, you truly are the best, hands down.

Reply from TartyBikes

Thank you Robert - really glad to hear you've had a positive experience, both with us and the bike. Enjoy!


Awesome bike

Super nice bike, awesome quality. Tartybikes sent me this bike very quick (and I'm living in Spain). Bike and seller more than recommended.
