The full Cr-moly Inspired Console offers me a good re-introduction to riding trials on a “normal-looking, normal-feeling” bike, with plenty of sweet moves and flow to enjoy.
It is like going back to the old days, but on a much more solid bike with a modern street geometry, and tons of new tricks to learn.
