Ahhh gump...the Trimble road bike was actually the creation of Brent's Brother, James (I think?).

From what I remember, the road bike came first then the creation of the mountain bike was born unto the Trimble family.

The road bike was built to be aero...however, it was in fact plagued by the cross wind syndrome, albeit not as bad as one would expect.

Rare as hens teeth...though not as rare as the Woods Bike :roll:

cheers,

rody

Scant yet again taunts and teases :)
Had the option of buying a softtail from Fishers. It used to belong to a director they'd parted company with. Couldn't afford it at the time. It was the complete bike, full WCS kit. I know wish i'd tried a bit harder :roll:

For me I'd like to find the following:

An early (mid 90s) Turner Burner and/or aTurner Afterburner (with the straight chainstays from the BB pivit) see below.

even something with Kona stickers would be acceptable!

A couple have appeared on UK eBay but neither will send outside the UK so add a willing sender to the list too ;)

I'd love to get my hands on one of those! If you're after someone to get one delivered to & then forward it on, I'm sure I could manage (as long as I got to hold onto it for a couple of years! ;) )... :)
