Trials training gizmo

I saw a bike frame looking setup in a trials video a while ago. It had pegs, handlebars, and rubber pads where tires would touch the ground.

Can anyone point me to more details about these? Pictures or info. I'd like to build one as a winter project.





I apologize for not being able to help here, Mike, but I'm curious:

What was the point of this deal? Balance practice?



Edited by Mr. Neutron

Balance practice is the reason. I'm 6'4" and want to be able to try different geometry, mainly bump up the reach of everything until it feels right. The other option is piecing together a mod trials bicycle. I've noticed huge improvements in my mountain biking confidence and composure when i just went all out with tall bars and got the riding position to where i'm not crunched over.
