Each move is decomposed step-by-step with numerous photos and tips that will boost both your confidence and riding ability. It all starts with balance and a few hops on the back wheel, before you start challenging yourself on new lines and obstacles, looking at new ways to push your limits while staying on your bike. Also included in this book are several chapters about the sport's evolution, bike geometry and setup, as well as preparation advice.

Endorsed by the Union Cycliste Internationale, this carefully crafted handbook features numerous photos from top riders competing at UCI's recent Trials World Cups and World Championships.

Does this book contain tricks that can be proformed on a 20" trials bike as well as a 24" as I only have a 20" bike and am only just got into trials !! Thanks

Hi Nick - thanks for your question. The focus of this book is the more traditional side of trials - navigating obstacles. This book does not feature much in the way of street trials, if that's what you mean by "a 24" bike". Each technique in this book is valid for each wheel size, though some may be easier on one than another. Hope that helps! Thanks, Flipp.

Packed with information

Posted by Jake on 28/06/2012

Bought this book a while back, and have been reading it on-off before bed. All the little information it gives you in the step by step guides to do a move helps so much, I would recommend this to any trials rider regardless of skill level. There's 100x more information in this than they have on their official website, cheers Julian for writing it and Tartybikes for shipping it to me!

Thanks for the review Jake, glad you like the book! We are also very impressed with the amount of info it contains.


The definitive handbook of bike trials

Posted by Hugh on 22/08/2012

I'm a 40yo mtn biker starting to learn trials. There is not really a trials community where I live so I am self taught. I ordered this book recently and it is simply superb. Happich greatly expands on the content from his Trashzen website. Every trials move from beginner to world championship level is categorized and explained in detail with multiple photos of him pulling the moves and detailed description of each stage of the move. Obviously a great deal of time and care was taken in producing this book and I reckon this will become the bible for bike trials techniques for many years. It might seem expensive for a small paperback but the wealth of information means it would be a bargain at twice the price. Whatever level you ride at you should check it out.

Hi Hugh - The amount of work that's gone into this book is quite incredible! I'm glad you've found it useful too. I wish I'd had access to something like this when I first got started in the trials world! Thanks for the detailed review, and good luck with your future riding.


Worthy Purchase

Posted by chris on 27/08/2012

Having been out of the trials scene for about 7 years, i decided to sell my DH bike (due to injury) and get back into trials. I bought this book to read up on whilst I was in hospital getting surgery, and its brilliant! So detailed and the photos really compliment the words, it takes you from the basics like trackstands all the way up to moves to front wheel etc. I would recommend this book to new riders, and more experienced riders alike as there really is something for everyone. Awesome read!
