I noticed in your galleries pics of a mod and stock trials bike. I'm thinking of setting up a cheap
cheap trials bike. (no hydros) I want to get one to improve my balancing skills for my regular
riding and basic fooling around. What is easier to ride a mod or stock?

I use a mod because I'm a smallish human being, its easier for me to pull certain manuevers with a
bike that is lighter and smaller and only running 1 gear. I rode the stock for a while but I
couldn't seem to be able to handle it quite as well as the mod. The stock is now officially Jim's
bike, he can handle it better than I can. Each bike has its advantages/disadvantages, depending
where you ride and your style of riding, but either way, trials is the definite way of improving
your skills and gaining more confidence on the bike.

Here's a little comparison:
