All the trimble talk recently made me think about S-Bike

Pretty hard to search for on this forum.

Ebay popped up this one.

I believe Anthony Quinn (the actor) son was involved.

Not cheap at all. There was a frame/frameset on eBay UK a while ago that went for about £100 - I think it may have been Jez who got it?


It was pretty fubar'd though, I was the seller and knew it had been 'repaired' a little by the previous owner but when it got to jez he noticed it was seriously damaged so I sold it off as spares or repairs for £30ish :( .
:!: It seems these bikes can be prone to snapping at the back of the seat tube stays area :!:

the one on ebay at the moment is too expensive , 200 to 300 euros is a decent price for them .

the one in eastbourne was the only full sus I ever seen on ebay .
