One of the few frames that really acts as a canvas for the paintscheme. Without the paint its interesting, with the paint 'cool'. Does this make the bike cool, I'm not sure.
I'd like one though....
So on the basis of no sensible analysis its 'cool' for me.

Incidentally its one of the only bikes in my collection that gets the most interest (especially by non biking types) - I guess because its so insane looking!

It also makes me smile when you see it. Far removed from the black mountain bikes of todays era... :?

Also I have to add it was one of the 5 most favourite bikes on the stand at Mountain Mayhem 2009 - voted by the public.

Hmm, doesn't do it for me I'm afraid. . Like somebody else mentioned, the fat seat tube and skinny forks combo doesn't look "right" to me.
Did any of these ever snap in half?

Some of these pics of Trimbles just remind me of Dave Lee Roth in the 80s...
