Just pop any of Jez's bikes in, they never win, but they bulk out the competition nicely ;0)

HA!

Mr Trimble is still sitting here in my living room waiting for a decision to be made about particular forks, and whether NOS Bullseye cranks are gunna make it look a tad cumbersome, whether I can ever get white SIS cables, whether rasta Pauls stuff is a good idea after all, where the proposed 3 seatposts are in the royal mail system, is the paintwork correct or should I just send it to Argos for a tiger stripe? or whether the roo stem combo is indeed made of clay and the rise on such an item will make me look like im begging as I ride along....


Yep not even 1/2 finished....but it isnt going to be sold. Just wait....

:D

Sorry for this thread hijack, but did you see the mountain cycles suspenders with disk and wheel (all nos) on ebay. Think that would look rather good and is period, you just have to bolt in a new 1"steerer and bingo!

Hijack over now....

I vote Kestrel, the white one.
