While Im waiting for the garage to clear and some clarity to come back to my day to day existance, and also to stop me having a fit about how much stuff is going....


I thought I'd post this pic of the Trimble. Mighty handsome too.

I think keeping it down to a 4 bike ensemble is healthier for my sanity. :oops:

Nice bike there, just out of interest as you have many excellent bikes in your huge collection, do you ride any of them?

That's a shame, as you only live once on this planet, you should ride these bikes more often as I would, they deserve to be ridden.

You're the retrobike master Jez...


...but Trimbles and T-discs dont match. With the inverse 4, the rear end is too clustered...

Just my $.02

I actually really like the disc on the trimble. My only (slight) beef would be the trimbles always seem a bit skinny up front - at least with the higher end Kleins etc the 'beefiness' is carried through with the forks. Diffrn't strokes and all that I guess.

Still a fantastic bike though Jez :D

Only 4 bikes Jez? Can I come round your garage and take one every time you exceed that limit :wink:
