Bought Trimble sales leaflest/brochure thing of Ebay the other day - Ill scan it in when I have a moment.

Interesting enough it gives the spec of what the actual frame material is made of:

"duPont kevlar, carbon fibre and fibreglass in epoxy resin matrix."


Oooh

Go to Google patents and type- trimble mountain -it has all the engineering and even tells you how to build it!
In case you Brits don't know, all US patents are public record and can be viewed on-line.
When the elastomers died on my Prolex, I went to the patent and it gives you all the engineering info. I had new ones made custom from that info.

without wanting to rain on the parade...

Surely the patent is viewable to STOP people from copying designs not to help :lol:

Just a thought you understand :wink:


BTW edan, which part of Boston are you from, I spent a lot of my childhood in Malden. Most of my family now lives in Hingham.

retrobikeguy-
how do you like the drawings of the kestrel frame showing the layers of carbon and how they're wrapped? Technogeek heaven.

sticklegs-
didn't mean to sound like I was ripping anyone off. i just meant to provide a solution when parts become obsolete. don't you hate it when the bike shops tell you to buy a new bike because parts are no longer available?
i live in the conord area- biker paradise. Malden's pretty urban.
