I'm actually surprised at the astonishment displayed from the board...I thought most knew that the Trimbles were infact fiberglass laid. Although some were made of actual carbon, the fabric and resin that was used turned out to be to brittle, fracturing at the bottom of the spine tube.
What amazes me more is that people who purchase Asian made "carbon" frames today still believe their frame is the real deal. The majority of these frames are glass with a single layer of carbon on the exterior lay...just enough to justify the marketing.
nar, i'm not surprised by any of that, my intional question was how the paint was removed as paintstriping nitromors is bad idea on carbon (no matter how little is actually used)... I hadnt considered the sanding option
I am surprised by the weight! there are plenty of modern 140mm travel FS bike frames that weigh less! (see my signature
cult retro frame as previously stated tho
