Very cool 8)

I remember wanting one when they were featured in a lot of the trials articles in MBUK. Definitely a classic. Is it a 26Mhz?

Cool I really like pashleys
i also loved PACE frames bitd

these r my trials dinosaurs

gt is real retro. Its like 94-95 or something.
Monty i bought in 2000. It was radical back then..
By todays standards its normal mountain bike frame :D
I made custom magura guard that was attached to a RB brakebooster.
It prevented me from kicking off the cables all the time.

I love the monty, the frame is quite like an old brisa I have.
The GT is proper retro, I've never really rode 20' but I do have a pace trials bike but it's not built.
It's the red one but I'd quite like to get it polished, the CNC work is super cool!

"Where's Christine Keeler when you want her ? "

I know! (i must say i did have to look this cultural reference up though)

with hole in the chair this big, she might even refuse to do it :lol:
(...to sit on it!)
Monty has some nice touches. Like eccentric rear triangle. The whole wheel is moved to the right a little so it allows for almost even spoke lengths and better spoke tension in the back.
Result of an early BIU rule that "26" bikes had to have a mech and gears

In that time almost all trials companies copied what monty did. especially that curved top tube.

What "tar" are you using - roofing felt adhesive?

I didnt grind my rims back then, so i was using a lot of it.
Here in Prague there is plenty in the center around the tram tracks. patches of asphalt they repaired holes with.
