Look what Pete Mc has taken delivery of - hopefully get it soon for the Trimble. Should match the Trimbles lines real well!

All we need is a 1 1/4 shim so I can pop in a threaded 1" steerer and Im away!

the only trimble I ever saw in the flesh had those forks on it :)
I personally never liked the rattle of the floating disc rotor on pro-stop discs although they were pretty powerful, esp back in 91 :)

Just got my Pro Stop working fully now - It is powerful but it's damn noisy!
Sounds like it's stuck, ringing as you pedal.
There's about 5mm of float on the disc - it's mad!

Jez, I've got the necessary syringes with mine if you want a borrow.
(probably easy to knock some up though)

Who wants to guess the weight of the parcel that UPS are having to hire a military transporter to bring from Philly to Chez Hammond?

Remember, though, that cardboard and bubble wrap are fairly hefty.....

Sorry fella, guess the weight of the box that contains Jez' forks and wheel that I've just posted to him (from Philly in the US).

It's been a long day so my posts are probably a bit goobledegook
