That's not a bontrager crown or legs. I'd be looking for a comp fork to match the look of the rest of the bike

here are what they look like.


They are very heavy. But very stiff.

Love this Trimble, nice score :D

I'd stick with the RS forks, and probably spec all black bits. The frame is bling enough, doesn't need anything else.

One of my favourite Trimble paint jobs for sure.

Many thanks for all the feedback and advice gents :D

No sign of similar looking Bontrager forks as far as I can see, but the eBay seller says "I'm a pretty big Bontrager fanboy, I have or had a Race, Race Light, Ti Lite, & Road Lite. And I have had 3 other switchblades. Two of them were exactly like the one I sold you. This fork also matches up with other Bontrager owners switchblades that I know locally. I have been to the Santa Cruz workshop when it was still open and they told me there were numerous variations of the switchblade."

Nonsense or ?

For now the RockShox are back on and I've learned to better research before purchasing!! :oops:
