I had both of those stumpjumpers :) mtn cycle suspenders pop up time to time on ebay. even braves dont make massive £ when they appear. so good luck :)

I have to admit I'm not loving the trimble road bike either :(

I agree on the trimble Scant.

How can a mountain bike so different but right come from the same creator as a road bike so different but wrong :?

I've got a friend with a Fisher Prometheus - I helped him buy it a couple of years back, £400 with XTR M900, Grafton cranks etc...


My list looks something like:

61cm Merckx MX Leader

21" DeKerf of any variety

Coda Magic Motorcycle chainset

Cooks Dogbone stem (cheap!)

Pair of MMC Rims (I think it was Sun that made these?)

Clark Kent Pineapple front wheel (for amusement purposes only!)
