Hi all,

I have been thinking about purchasing my first trials bike. Seeing as this is the first bike of its kind, I was hoping to get some direction on some good starter options.

Ideally, I am looking for something made within the past 10 years, as I assume the technology changes quite quickly. I would really love to spend less than $3,000, however, I don't even know if that realistic or not.

Also, I would like it to be a bike that is easy to work on and parts are fairly easily available.

Any information you all can give me about reliability, capability, brands, what to look for, what to avoid, etc. would be greatly appreciated.
