    Looks like I've had the bike 1 year now this month. I haven't gotten in near a years worth of riding though due to an injury and a long miserable winter. It has been a lot of fun thus far though, opened up areas I stayed away from before and has made me a better rider. So far, so good!

    That looks like it was a lot of fun. People just don't realize the skills needed to do it.

    I ride a Beta Evo 300. The kids are on a Honda trail bike. When they get a bit more experienced/stronger/taller I may get them a light full sized enduro, then we could swap bikes back and forth.

    Or I could just get them a Trials bike and we would be well matched. I see some small Gas Gas Trials bikes for sale here.

    Question: how confident can we be that Gas Gas Trials parts will be available for years to come. It seems like Gas Gas as a company has had a few ups and downs in terms of being profitable.

    I have 100% confidence they will be available. You can order new and used parts from across the pond as well.
    I've ordered from a couple places in the US. trialssuperstore.com is one of them.

    Jim Snell will always get my business. Hes fantastic for ordering parts and giving advice.

    As far as small bore trials bikes; ive owned an early 2000s model Rookie. It no longer had many parts and the engines were not made by Gas Gas. I forget which company but they did not have many parts available.

    Newer ones might be different. However, they sell much smaller numbers so parts will be harder to find in the end.
