If both saddles are at your height, that Trimble sure is a tall bike. :shock:
Maybe it would be interesting to measure the BB height on both, because the Trimble sure doesn't look like it's nearly as low as the Sbike.

Um, the Trimble's just higher up a slope in the garden, is it not?

Could be an optical illusion indeed. Hadn't thought of that. :oops:

the trimble is taller ,forks are longer ,but the S feels a lot lower than
most similar sized bikes there is about an inch of difference between them

Your right. A Trimble is a 'tall' ride. Never ridden an S
