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.

Additional Information

Steerer tube hose routing is unavailable on this bike due to the clearance between the tyre and the fork.
If you purchase steerer tube hose routing it will be refunded and the bike sent with the hose routed normally.

Hi there just wondering what's the rear axle on the hex and can u modify it to take a thicker axle?

Posted by Mark sinclair

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Mark!
The Hex uses a 10mm rear axle. It's not possible to modify it to take a thicker axle.
The standard Pro build uses a 10mm hub axle with M6 axle bolts to secure it in place, whereas the Hope Pro 4 Trials rear hub on the Team build uses a 17mm axle in the hub with M10 axle bolts. If you wanted a stronger rear axle you could switch to a Hope rear hub further down the line, although the standard hubs are nice and strong!
The majority of Inspired's bikes use 10mm rear dropouts and we don't have any reports of customers having problems with them in terms of strength so it shouldn't be an issue.

Hello, Please could you let me know the stack height of this frame (vertical distance BB to top of head tube) and how it compares to the Arcade. I'm 6'4" with long legs, and always struggle to get my bars to a comfortable height. Thanks in advance for any help!

Posted by Thomas Williams

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Thomas!
The Hex has 5mm more stack height than the Arcade, and with the Hex in general being slightly scaled up compared to Inspired's 24" bikes it would probably be the way to go.
That said, the reach difference from the Arcade to the Hex isn't huge, and with the Arcade having a steeper head angle it will theoretically also open up that reach the higher you make your bars. Realistically you could ride either, but I suspect the Hex would be the way to go.
The standard bars on the Hex Pro bike are relatively low, so you may wish to look into upgrading to the Inspired Arcade risers at some stage as they will add around 15-20mm to your bar height. If you're keen to make your bars as high as possible they 'd be a good addition.
If you have any more questions, feel free to ask!


Hi, i wanted a street trials bike for christmas, but i did't get one, so i have to buy it myself. what wheel size should i use? im 187cm tall.

Posted by Fredrik

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Fredik!
At your height, the Arcade or Hex would probably be the most comfortable for you, but the Flow and Fourplay bikes would be fine for you too. To get an idea of sizing, Inspired have created this chart that will give you an idea.
If you'd prefer to keep to a tighter budget, the Flow or Flow Plus bikes will still be great to get into street trials on. If you can spend a little more then the Pro spec Arcade, Fourplay or Hex bikes would be great too! The Hex is a little more trials focused, the Arcade is a little more BMX/street-y focused (although is still capable of trials moves) with the Fourplay sitting a little more in the middle.
If you've got any more questions, feel free to ask.


Hi Iím 6.2 and weight 159 pounds also Iím new to riding trails I currently ride a menís pitch specialized and use it as a trials bike which is not easy but certainly fun Iím looking to get more technical but need a new bike I donít know much about trails but and was wondering if you guys could guide me through my first purchase.

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Joel!
It's great to hear you're interested in trials - we'll certainly do our best to help point you in the right direction.
If you're looking to do purely technical moves, a more competition-style bike like the Echo Pure would be worth a look. They'll make the comp-style moves a little easier, but the flip side is that they feel very alien compared to 'normal' bikes, and they aren't ideal for riding at skateparks, pump tracks or other locations like that.
If you're interested in riding a mix of obstacles, a street trials bike like our Inspired or Czar bikes would be a good place to start.
If you aren't totally set on a 26" bike we have a little more variety - for example, the Czar Ion or Inspired Flow Plus bikes are a little cheaper and are very popular with riders getting into the sport. The smaller wheels make them a little more agile, but without making them feel too small. 26" wheels will work a little better for trials-specific moves, but the 24" bikes can handle them fairly well too. At your height you would still fit our 24" range fine.
The Hex is Inspired's only 26" bike, and one of the only 26" street trials bikes we sell. If you're coming from a mountain bike background it will feel the most familiar to you, and it'll certainly be significantly more trials capable than your Specialized!
If you've got a certain budget in mind or have any more questions, feel free to e-mail us at tartybikes@gmail.com and we'll be happy to help give you some extra info or pointers.

HI Tarty Bikes, Looking to transition from a Comp (26") to a Street trials bike but I have had trouble with street trials bikes before. I had struggled because the front end was far too easy to lift. Anyway, what is the most "Compy" street trials bike? That is to say, what street trials bike will ride the closest to a comp trials bike? I would rather inspired (fourplay, arcade, hex, skye) Thanks heaps, Frank

Posted by Frank Hutton

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Frank!
If you're looking for a bike closest to your comp bike, the Hex would be the way to go.
The Hex is still an agile bike, but the larger wheel size and longer reach will mean it's a little more suitable for your needs. It's the most trials-orientated bike in Inspired's range, but as guys like Ali Clarkson show it's still very capable for more street-orientated riding too. Riders like TRA have ridden the Hex and done some massive trials lines on them so I think it would be the way to go for you.
The larger wheel size lends itself better to moves like taps and gaps, so will mean you're not restricted too much on the trials side. It's still got a short rear triangle and the mid BB height means that it's still nice and 'flicky' for doing bunnyhops, spins and so on too.
If you are more tempted by their 24" range, then either the Fourplay or Arcade would be better for you than the Skye. The Skye features the shortest reach of Inspired's range, so would have a similar feel to the one you disliked on the bike you had before. The Fourplay is a little longer so would reduce that a little, with the Arcade having a slightly longer front triangle so hopefully alleviating that too. That said, the steep head angle on the Arcade and the super short rear end do make it very responsive so it would still take some getting used to from your comp bike.
If you have any more questions or need any more help deciding, feel free to get in touch! Hopefully this has helped.

Hi, Do the Sram DB5 brakes that come with this bike come with standard Sram pads or are they any kind of trials specific pad? Thanks, Scott

Posted by Scott McLerran

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Scott!
Unless otherwise stated, the brakes on our bikes are fitted with the standard pads from their respective manufacturers.
If you'd like to upgrade your brake pads at any point, we have some pads in stock to suit the DB5s, such as the Trialtech Sport Disc Brake Pads - Product code: 12957.

Mark Philip Madera

is this bike suitable for a short guy like me (167cm) or should I look for the 24 inch bikes. I have been on mountain bike for quite a while (7 years) and never owned and ridden a 24 inch bike. Cheers! Mark

Posted by Mark Philip Madera

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Mark - If you're 167cm then you might be a touch small for the Hex, and consequently should fit the Fourplay a little better. The Fourplay and Hex are essentially 24" and 26" versions of the same model - their frame kits are very similar, and the parts kits are the same apart from the size-specific parts of the wheelset. If you're used to a mountain bike then a 24" bike won't feel too dramatically different. They still roll well, but for spins and tricks you'll find that the bike will feel a little more agile and maneuverable. Hopefully that makes sense! Thanks, Mark

What is the for and frame made of?

Hi Jacob - Both the frame and fork of the Hex are constructed from aluminium. Thanks, Mark


Do you have suitable chain tensioners for this bike?

Posted by Benni

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Benni - You would need to use the Trialtech Sport Tensioner Lower Half for this bike (Product code: 12662). These are out of stock at the moment - Trialtech expect them to be back in stock in June. Thanks, Mark


I need some spare spokes for this bike. What lenghts and type do I need exactly. I want to get black ones.

Posted by Benni

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Benni - If you're looking to order the spokes from us, simply add a set of Black 26" Spokes to your basket, then in the 'Notes' section at checkout let us know what bike they're for. We can split the spoke lengths between the different sizes you'd need for each wheel. Thanks, Mark


If I order this when would I get it

Hi Jamie - It takes 2-3 working days to build the bike in our workshop, then delivery time would depend on the country you're in and the delivery option you choose. If you click 'Add to Basket' then the 'View Basket' button, our website will calculate delivery options - and their associated delivery times - for you and display them. Thanks, Mark

Scott McLerran

Hi, I'm wondering what else has changed with the geometry on this bike other than chainstay length and slightly steeper head angle? You are showing that the reach is 15mm longer but the wheelbase 17mm shorter than the previous model. Is the wheelbase correct for sure or am I missing something? I'm only looking at these details because I am 6'2", looking for a new frame but don't want something that feels too short. Thanks!

Posted by Scott McLerran

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Scott - A few features can distort the reach measurement, in much the same way they can the wheelbase too. For example, the new Hex features a longer head tube which is also positioned a little higher on the frame relative to the old Hex frame (to accommodate the tapered head tube setup, the axle to crown measurement on the fork is a touch longer which means the frame has had to be tweaked to keep everything else where it should be). This 'grows' the reach of the bike as the top measuring point is further away from the BB. At the same time, the offset of the fork is reduced quite a lot from the previous generation Hex forks so the wheelbase becomes much shorter, especially when you factor in the steeper head angle. In terms of the feel of the bike though, I'm around the same height as you and having ridden Ali's Hex they feel like a nice compromise between being long enough to help out with trials moves, but also short enough to be a bit more nimble and agile than the older Hex. It felt roomier than the 24" Inspired bikes I've ridden, and the effects of the larger wheel size add to that too in terms of the ride characteristics. Thanks, Mark

Is it comfortable to ride 5-10 km on road?

Posted by Joshua

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Joshua - I've ridden longer distances than that on my 24" Inspired Arcade, so with the Hex having slightly larger wheels it should be absolutely fine. Thanks, Mark


Hi guys, do you sell the new hex as a frame kit too? Best regards, Ben

Posted by Ben

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Ben - The frame kit isn't available separately yet so unfortunately not, sorry. We hope they'll be available a little later in the year. Thanks, Mark

Frank Hutton

When you purchase the hope brake upgrade, which model are they? Are the the quad piston or dual piston ones? Also does that mean they have hope rotors? And are there color options? Sorry for so many questions

Posted by Frank Hutton

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Frank - The specific brakes included are mentioned further down the spec list, but for the Hope brakes they'd be the Hope Tech 3 Trial Zone brakes (you can view these on our website by searching for product code 13041), with 180mm Trial Zone V2 rotors. The brakes are only available in the standard black/silver colourway. Thanks, Mark

Jack Butler

You say the reach is 680mm, but this cant be right. Reach is typically measured as a vertical line up from the BB, intersecting a horizontal line extending from the center of the head tube. If this were truly 680mm, that would mean that the top tube is well over 26 inches. What is the reach, as typically measured by bike manufacturers?

Posted by Jack Butler

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Jack - As the description states, we measure our reach from the centre of the BB shell to the centre top of the head tube. We do this as the unusual geometry of most trials frames means that the 'conventional' method of measuring frames doesn't really make as much sense. Unfortunately, as these bikes are out of stock we aren't able to get that measurement for you, sorry. Thanks, Mark


How suitable would this bike be for a 6'3 110kg beginner Or could you point be in the right direction of best option with no budget? Cheers

Posted by Shane

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Shane - It would be entirely suitable. The bike is large enough for your height and very strong. If you're after a bike of this style (short wheelbase, with a seat, etc.) I don't think you can beat it! Many thanks, Adam

Awesome bike!

Posted by Josh

This is my first street trials bike, having only really dabbled in cycle trials with a mod bike I bought last year. Coming from a moto trial- mtb background I should have gone 26Ē straight away! I love the new found freedom of being able to cycle to spots easily. It does back wheel stuff a lot easier than I was expecting. It feels smooth and planted on the back and in general. Upgraded to the trial zone hope brakes which I highly recommend. It didnít take me long to adjust to this bike which surprised me. The bad thing is I literally cannot ride my mod anymore. It feels far too twitchy As my balance has adjusted to this bike. The only thing I didnít like about this bike is the trial tech pedals.. Even with 5í10s on I found myself slipping off the pedals far too much. Swapped them for some nuke proofs and problem solved! Canít fault anything else! Tartybikes customer service is one of the best! 5/5

Wow! But slight irritations...

Posted by IdahoMyron

For TartyBike's ordering process, delivery, and follow-up to my delivery issue: Five Stars. I want to give the bike Five Stars but due to the tires and tubes I cannot. So Four + stars on the bike as a complete package. If I were to only rate the Inspired assembly, brakes, and drivetrain it would be Five Stars. Disclosure:. This is my first Trials Bike. At 5' 8" and 165# the bike is a great fit and the balance...I was able to track stand in about five minutes. I have never accomplished that on my enduro. Within the first hour I was able to hop onto (and off) low tabletops at the skate park. First issue was with the included Kenda tubes that cannot be filled with my floor pump. The valve-cores are too deep so my pumps cannot activate them. Pressure has to exceed 60 PSI (4bar) in the pump before any passes the valve. The tubes have been replaced with Bontraiger tubes and that issue has been resolved. On pavement the tires are fine but on Skate Park concrete they are dangerously low grip. The rear tire spins on acceleration attempts and they both slide on any cross-incline routes. Spring for some tires with more surface contact and softer rubber. I think for dirt/non-street use the included tires will be great. So in short if you want a great bike buy your Hex and change out the tires. Save the included ones for trails and street use.

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Myron - Thanks for the detailed review, we really appreciate your feedback! Regarding the tyres, when new they can be a little slippery as they'll have some release agent on them from the factory. This tends to wear off over time. It's worth noting that some skateparks will be more slippery than others too - I've ridden various concrete parks with my Inspired and they can go from being nice and grippy to like riding on ice! Hopefully you'll like your new tyres though. I'm sorry to hear about your problems with the valves on the supplied tubes - this isn't something we've heard of or experienced ourselves before. I hope you continue to enjoy your Hex none-the-less! Thanks again for your review.
