Very nice indeed.

If I wanted to be really picky I'd say the Z5 would look much better with a polished BAM brace than the painted Z5 job, and better internals from a Z2 would also improved their performance. That and the 2001 model year fork stickers could also be considered out of place.

But in reality it matter nowt. ;)

as it was and how it is :arrow:

http://s30.photobucket.com/remix/player.swf?videoURL=http%3A%2F%2Fvid30.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fc320%2Fretrobikeguy%2FTrimble%2520carbon%2F32de24aa.pbr&hostname=stream30.photobucket.com&t=1183621733&fs=1&os=1&ap=1

I did want a polished brace so I could use a real marzocchi cantilever hanger but I couldn't find one at a reasonable price so if anyone has a reasonably priced marzocchi polised arch up for grabs ...........pm me :wink:

I will get some better piccis up as soon as I get some batteries

:!: BTW....................front brake looking like its gonna be replaced by a gold rockshox disc caliper and the front hope by a white industries/rockshox disc hub

I think the real early frames had no frame number.
Their are only two other makes i love Klein & Merlin. But they haven't got that some thing special 8) . Plus out of my price range.
