Trials riding is a competitive sport which is totally focused on the bike handling skills of the rider. Trials bikes are specific bikes designed for one purpose; to aid the rider to negotiate their way over an obstacle course. Spain is the birth place of trials riding and most of trials riding is conducted/supported in Spain, in Australia trials riding is yet to kick off in any major way. Though trials bike frames are similar to BMX frames they differ on two points. The first is that trials bikes have no seat or a very low seat as the rider is constantly out of the saddle balancing the bike. The second is trials bikes have a fixed wheel and brakes front and rear to allow maximum low speed maneuverability.
