    The 280 is a bike made for experts.
    My first trials bike is a 280 pro and initially I thought it was fine but as I started to try more challenging things the instant tree climbing power got me into all sorts of bother.
    I have fitted a slow throttle head spacer and a flywheel weight but it is still not ideal and I now prefer riding my twinshock Fantic.
    On the plus side if it had not been for getting the bike cheap I would not have tried Trials and I would have missed out on something that I really enjoy.

    So a cheap 280 is OK to have a bit of a go on and see if you like it. Make sure that you fit a slow throttle with a bit of slack in the cable before you ride it.
