Thought I'd stick a few pictures up of my recently built old-new DMR Trailstar
Back in 1999 or so Total Mountain Bike ran a group-test of hardcore hardtails which included the Kona Chute, Spooky Metalhead, DMR Trailstar, and some scaffolding welded together in Taiwan called a Hardcore DSV. Like a numpty I bought the Hardcore and quickly wished I'd bought the Trailstar. So, 11 years too late I finally picked this one up on ebay and transferred all my old 1999-2000 bits onto it. It's got D521 CDs, Manitou X-Vert E fork, V8 pedals, DMR bashguard, generic CNC stem, couple of bits of x-lite jewellery, club roost bars, and an M570 brake. Got a bit carried away on CRC hence the modern post, tyres and cranks.
Forks lost their damping owing to an over-enthusiastic landing by Splatter Paint at Slough BMX track in 2001, but otherwise they're pretty sound. Not in the same league as Aeronaut's Trailstar I know, but I love this bike, Frame just feels great, lovely spring ride.
