This photo was just posted by a guy on anothe forum who apparently owns this Trimble.

Is the frame fork just a coincidence, or is it something that Jez has previously acquired??

I think the fat diameter of the fork legs helps balance the look of the whole bike IMHO... amusingly the only trimble I saw in the flesh back in the day (malvern hills classic, forget the year) had suspenders forks on it ;)

I've always been interested in picking up a Trimble, but have never been able to determine if the head tube angle is steep enough to truly accommodate a modern 80mm fork.

Can you guys shed any light on this for me?
