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.

Questions

Hi, I am a 14 year old street trials rider who is. Looking to get into pure trials. Im 5'3" currently and was wondering if this bike would fit me. If not, do you have any suggestion on shorter stems that could help with this? Thanks.

Hi Cyrus!
If you're coming from a street trials bike then most of our trials bikes will feel quite big for you simply because competition-style frames tend to have a much longer reach than street trials frames. This benefits that style of riding, but will take a little getting used to for you.
At 5'3" you're towards the lower end of the height range we'd recommend for a 26" bike, so fitting a slightly shorter stem should help out. Something like the Jitsie Forged 135mm stem would be a good option, for example.
Hopefully this helps, but if you have any more questions feel free to ask.

Hey guys I know it's all personal preference but I'm looking at ordering this bike and I'm round 5ft 6"/7" ish do you reckon it'll be an ok size for my height? I already have a echo lite Mk6 that I ordered from you and it's a really good bike but it mainly gets used for street trials, I just really want a 26" for pure trials type riding, cheers in advance.

Hey Corey - Absolutely! Worse case scenario, you could fit a slightly shorter stem to bring the bars a touch closer to you, but with the handlebars in a 'normal' position (ie. not rolled all the way forwards) it will fit you well. Cheers!

hi there - I'm 6'2" 49 years old and trying to decide what wheel size and if seatless or not.. I've ridden bikes all my life - bmx, mtb, road, cross, gravel, and have always wanted to try trials. I'm looking for something easy to learn on and great quality/lightweight but still good entry level for a beginner. would this jitsie varial 1085 be good for me or do you recommend something else? wanna make sure I keep safe too :P thanks!!

Hi Joe!
It's great to hear you're looking at getting into trials. It should compliment your other riding disciplines well - we've found typically that riders who already have some experience with other disciplines pick trials up fairly quickly, and the extra technical skills they learn on their trials bike help them when they're out on their 'normal' bikes.
In terms of what's right, that's difficult to say. A focused bike like the Jitsie Varial is best if you're looking specifically to use it for more static, competition-style moves.
Other bikes like the Czar Neuron 26" or Inspired Hex are a good option if you're looking to get a more trials-orientated bike that's still capable of being ridden at skateparks, pump tracks, street obstacles and so on. They won't allow you to go quite as big as you could do in a strictly trials way as something like the Varial, but they'll allow you to ride a wide range of obstacles in a different style.
If you're looking to go more for the seatless, competition-style bike, you can't go wrong with the Varial. They've recently come down in price significantly so they're better value for money than ever, and come with a parts kit that features some of the most popular aftermarket parts we sell. The Varial frame and fork are proven World Cup winners too so those parts are built onto a solid foundation!
For your height, the Varial should be perfect too. As before it will feel quite a lot different to your other bikes as the BB is much higher and the stem is much longer, but once you've got the feel of things you should find that you can pick up the basics quickly, before progressing onto more of the advanced moves you'll see the top riders doing.
If you need any more help or information, feel free to ask!

Hi, Im 5,10 and Im not sure what size of bike to get, can you guys help me out

Posted by Cameron

Hi Cameron!
Luckily for you, at your height you are able to ride either a 20", 24" or 26" bike without a problem - the only problem is that it makes it harder to choose!
Most riders at your height will lean more towards a 26" bike, in which case the Varial 1085 would be a great option. The Varials were great value before, but with their recent price drop they're even better! You'd fit the bike well at 5'10" and I don't see you needing to do anything like changing the bar or stem to customise the fit of the bike to suit.
You would also be able to ride the Jitsie Varial 1010 20" bike, but it's worth considering your riding background and what other bikes you ride - if any - when choosing. If you ride or have ridden mountain bikes in the past, the 26" Varial would be the better option. This is because 20" bikes handle in a unique way compared to other bikes. The combination of small wheels, a higher bottom bracket and then a long stem with a slack head angle is good for trials, but does mean they ride completely differently to any other type of bike. Carrying over skills from your trials bike to your other bikes may be a little more difficult as a result. The 26" Varial will still feel different to other bikes due to the geometry, but as the wheel size is a little closer to most mountain bikes the skills you'll pick up will transfer across more easily.
Overall I think the 26" would be a better bet for you, but a 20" like the Echo Lite or Jitsie Varial 1010 wouldn't be a bad bike for you by any means.
If you have any more questions feel free to ask!

Hi guys, since you asked me, I just wanted to give you a little more info about my current bike. The bottom bracket rise is 35, and I have a 70mm 35° rise stem. I have inspired high rise handlebars. One of the problems I'm having is the overall weight of my bike. It's almost 24lbs and I need it to be lighter or I need a new lighter bike. I have a few original 2005 parts on it. Cranks and bashing are 2005 170 Tensile. Tires are Continental Trail King 2.4 and 2.2. I don't even know what the rims are but they are from 2005 and have fiberglass in where there would be drilled out parts in current rims. Brakes are 2010 HS33 rim brakes. I have an 2013 Echo combination fork. Front hub is 2005 Echo 28 spoke. Rear hub is also 2005 Echo. Chain tensioner is Trialtech Sport Sprung. Freewheel is Monty 135. Headset is some generic 2005 internal. So, with all of this, and me being 5' 2", what's your thought about me getting a new bike, or trying different parts to lighten up my current bike?

Hi Tess!
Thanks for the additional information.
Based on that, I think the Jitsie Varial would feel too long for you, unfortunately. The frame itself is quite a lot longer than your current frame, and if you were to use a 70mm stem on it the bike would handle in a weird way - the BB is very high on the Jitsie compared to your frame, and to counteract this you need to have your bars raised up (which is why it is fitted with such a long, high rise stem as standard). With a low stem like that it would be quite difficult to ride.
Your best option may be to have a look at some of our more trials-orientated 24" bikes, for example the Neon Wing 24" Custom Build we have available. The reach on this bike is 640mm so is a little more compact, and although it has a higher BB than the Varial this is offset by the smaller wheel size to an extent. You may need a longer stem than your 70mm stem, but the bike overall will still feel more agile than your current 26".
Alternatively, changing a few parts on your current bike could help make it feel more nimble too. Some lighter, high rise trials bars would help save a little weight. Similarly, switching to a slightly narrower front tyre would shave off some excess weight too without compromising performance. There are some slightly lighter cranks available, and some more modern rims might help take some of the weight out of the wheelset too.
The only 'risk' with that is that if the geometry of the bike is a bigger issue, it could end up being that you spend money on parts that won't necessarily help, meaning if you decide to try a new bike out you'll have sunk more money into your current build. If you are fairly happy with how it rides at the moment and would just like to try and reduce the weight then trying some new, lighter parts out should help, but that's down to how you feel on the bike!
If you'd like some specific parts suggestions, feel free to e-mail us and we'll do our best to help.

Hi, I'm only 5'2 and was wondering if this bike will fit me? I'd really like to get a new bike and I've only ridden 26". My old frame has a 1045 wheelbase and a 640mm reach. Do you think this bike could work for me or do I need to stick with my old frame if I stay with a 26"?

Posted by Tess Dunlap

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Tess!
It's hard to say if this bike will feel too big as it will come down to personal preference (and can be adjusted a little with stem length changes), but I suspect you'll feel a little stretched out due to the extra 20mm or so of reach on this frame compared to your previous frame. The change in BB height on this frame compared to your old frame might skew how it feels, as will how long your previous stem was and how much rise your bars had.
If you're able to let us know a bit more about your old setup we'll do our best to help point you in the right direction!
