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.

Questions

Joel

Hi Iím looking at ordering the team hex. Iím wondering if the brake levers are set up the same in the UK and North America. The right hand controlling the rear and the left controlling the front is what Iím after. Just looking to confirm before I order.

Hi Joel!
When we set bikes up, we check the country it's being shipped to to work out which orientation the brakes need to be. If it's being shipped to the US, we'd always go for a right hand/rear setup unless requested otherwise.
At checkout you can also specify the orientation of brakes you'd prefer too, just to be doubly sure!
If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.

Its time for my hex team to get a new bottom bracket, what size do I need?

Posted by James Culcasi

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi James!
If you have the newer Hex Team with SRAM Descendant cranks, you would need this BB.
If you have the older Hex Team with Truvativ Holzfeller cranks, you would need this BB.
Hopefully this helps! If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.

Hello!
The Hex is only available in the colour shown. At present, that's Metallic Orange.

I have an inspired element as well as an echo pure sl pro (custom build). I had the element first and really struggled to learn the basics. I found that when I first hopped on the Echo, I was easily able to do many more basic skills (hopping on back wheel etc.) instantly. Would the hex be more similar to the echo or the element? Would my newfound skills on the Echo translate onto the Hex better? I am starting to think that the main issues I had with the element were that I couldn't get the rear brake to grab at all. What are your thoughts? I would love to get a hex at some stage to replace both bikes. The more detail the merrier! Thanks heaps, Frank

Hi Frank - The more trials-focused bikes out there like the Echo will make learning the basics of trials a little easier due to the geometry of the bikes. They're designed specifically for that style of riding, whereas the Inspired range are a designed to allow you to do a broader range of riding. To look at it another way, learning to do spins and BMX-inspired moves on an Echo would be harder than learning the basics of trials on an Inspired.

Comparing the Element to the Hex, the Hex would be much easier/better to ride than the Element. It sounds like you may have had a rim brake on the Element - if this is the case, the disc brake on the rear of the Hex will help out a great deal on its own! The geometry on the Hex is an improvement from the Element too. The rear triangle is more compact which makes it better on the rear wheel, and better for bunnyhops and spins too. It is the same length as the Echo, whereas depending on the year the Element would be between 5-15mm longer. The BB is a little higher than the Element which again makes it better for trials moves. The tapered head tube and front through axle mean that it's a little stiffer so more responsive. It will also be a little lighter which will help trials moves to an extent.

Now you have built up skills from riding your Echo, they will translate onto the Hex fairly easily. Initially the Hex will be harder to do the same scale of moves as you can on your Echo, but they will be easier than they would have been on the Element. Once you're used to it, you'll be able to build the size of moves back up. While you're doing that, you'll also being able to incorporate more street style moves into your riding too.

We find that many riders who have an out-and-out trials bike and something like an Inspired tend to spend more time on their Inspired, and that was certainly the case for me too! I was in a similar position, and I found that the Inspired being a much more versatile bike meant that although I couldn't go quite as big on it as I could some moves on my trials bike, it allowed me to do a lot more in general. As a result, it became my go-to bike and in the end I sold my trials bike as it wasn't being used.

If you're hoping to primarily concentrate on competition-style trials then the Echo will be the better tool for the job. If you're hoping to blend that style of trials in with some more flowing moves, riding alternative setups like skateparks or pump tracks and so on then the Inspired would be better suited to it.

Hopefully that helps! If you've got any more questions, feel free to ask.
Thanks,
Mark

What is the lightest bike in the inspired range and what are some of the most popular colours

Posted by Marik

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Marik - the lightest Inspired bike is the 20" Flow due to it's small size. The lightest Inspired designed for fully grown riders is the Flow 24", and the most popular colours depend on the type of bike you buy. Inspired make two new colours available at a time which change with each model, so it is a little difficult to compare. Thanks, Flipp.

What colour would your recommend for this bike and TELL ME THE UPS AND DOWN

Posted by Marik

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Marik - unfortunately we can't recommend a colour as it is entirely down to your personal preference. The benefits of a bigger bike is that they roll smoother than smaller bikes, and they have more room for taller riders, though they can feel a little difficult to manoeuvre if you're accustomed to smaller bikes and often work out being a little heavier. The majority of the decision lies with your preferences on how a bike should handle. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

Marik Trajkovski

What age would you recommend these bikes for and can you tell me if the bikes are any good what are the ups and downs of this bike and is the inspired hex the best out of or the other types

Posted by Marik Trajkovski

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Marik - thanks for your question. These bikes are great for most people aged around 16 and over. It is less of an age consideration and more to do with height. If you are less than 5' tall you will find these bikes quite big, and potentially difficult to manoeuvre. These are very good bikes and are the best you can buy for 26" street-trials riding. I hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

charliecar

Hi, I've been riding downhill MTB for a few years now and I would like to get into trials as many of my friend have started recently. Would you say this bike would be suitable for a guy like myself? (6ft6", 190lbs and used to riding a full suspension DH bike.)

Posted by charliecar

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Charlie - thanks for your question. This bike sounds very well suited to you. It has a much more "normal bike" feel than more competition oriented trials bikes, whilst still being more than capable of the more specialist types of riding. You will likely be most comfortable on this as it is closer to what you are familiar with. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

Best Hex Ever

Posted by Danny

Having owned the original Red coloured Hex, a Lime Green Hex and many street frames (Pashley, Megamo Radical, Ashton ET24, and Zebdi) over the past 20 years.. I can confidently say this is the BEST HEX EVER and one of the greatest street orientated trials bikes. Geometry is Dialed, the now shorter rear end and overall stiffness makes this a very responsive bike. Build Quality is absolutely top level, upon opening the box it was very reassuring how quickly and easily it all went together and parts fitted so well (in part due to the attention to detail from the Tarty Crew in pre-assembling every bike sold), amazing! When you jump on the bike for the first time - it is amazing how solid, reassuring, stiff and responsive the bike is, but that's nothing until you pick it up and realise the build is quite light too. Everything works as it should and the optional upgrade to the MT7 with the Danny Mac HC3 lever blades is a must do. The levers are solid, adjustable in reach and bite point - seperate of each other, and feel incredible. I am particularly fussy with making my levers feel just right, and this was done in just a few minutes - too easy! The new upgraded spec with Conti Tyres is a nice touch - just today I took the bike for a spin on some rocks and was instantly rewarded with a decent amount of grip. It was a change from the smooth concrete of the last few street rides but the tyres handled it perfectly. Very nice to see Continental Tyres on a stock complete! For the first time in a long time - I have got a complete that didn't require any parts being swapped out or upgraded. That is no easy achievement and something Inspired should be commended for. This is a top quality build, that looks the goods and most importantly performs even better.. All in all the bike is brilliant - even the most fussy riders would be impressed. The new paint job was something I wasnt sure I would like, but having had the bike for a bit now, I can say I love it. In the light it is very intricate and in the dark takes on a deep maroon colour. Complimented with Silver Inspired stickers, it is a winner. So, spec is a 10, looks is a 10 and performance is a 10. Inspired's have gotten better and better year on year and that's saying something as I still see a lot of the original frames still kicking on. If you want a serious 26 inch street bike that' can still handle the natty stuff, this is a proper weapon!!
