Hey Perry,

Could you have a look at this for me and give me the low down?

I've a friend who fancies a Trailstar and this seems a good deal?

Anthing I should know/be aware of?

thats whats being called a generation 2 . newer than mine as it has the APS mounts ( removable cantis )

unless he wants to use bmx cranks itl need the wondercups . get the newest ones with a recess as the old ones didnt and it made the mtb bottom bracket a tad wider

it may or may not have crud mounts

they are all 14"

weigh about 6lbs

thats mine before i removed the cable guides

heres one similar to the satin silver that sold on ebay yesterday or the day before for about £75

ive been following this since brant left onone and the more i see it the more i would consider it as something for when i have money available . loadsa clearance 8)

i thought about getting some cheap old bombers earlier today :oops: got a bit sideways in the muddy downhill ( covered by trees ) and it might be a bit more fun if i didnt have to concentrate on not piling the front wheel into a rock . i guess i should replace the rear tyre first though :lol:

That Howies video is shot on a really good camera, depth of field etc is excellent and it looks like it might be HD too...I want one :cry:
