Because Trimble are not made any more and i'm not interested in owning/riding lesser mtb's


Well at least you are not limiting your options then.

I bet your Litespeed rides better off road. Once i've finished i will use 'proper' off road rubber.
I have to watch my weight as the cranks only rider weight of 110kg, pedals 85 kg, bar 85 kg and the new (weighting to arrive) seat & post 85 kg rider weight.
The spokes i wanted max 75 kg rider. But i'm 75 kg so can't have them.

MTB's this light bounce down hill but are great up which suits me as i like going up hill
