Not quite as bad an insult as yours but when I have built my Univega with DX/LX/STX/Mavic goodies a neighbour thought it was a Universal Catalogue bike :)

I can’t believe you’re upset. Just shows how ahead of its time the Trimble is. Especially in the ugly department.

Now that is bad. Not a good neighbour.

''I can’t believe you’re upset. Just shows how ahead of its time the Trimble is. Especially in the ugly department.''THM

Even in the bike design dept. Had it called a 'unisex' bike. :facepalm: Don't girls/woman ride men's designed mtb now?

Nah, Trible are actually a GPS/GNSS manufacturer.

He was probably being nice. The Trimble actually looks like it was made by someone who'd read a description of a bicycle in a foreign language dictionary.

Meh.

At the first Iconoclassic, an old woman came over to ask about my lotus. She wanted to know where to get one as it looked like a great ladies bike with it's low standover height.

*facepalm*
