:shock: WOW!

Not a huge Trimble fan but slowly but surely I'm being converted.

That's a real eye catcher 8)

Nice 8)

gotta say my next colour choice was going to be a yellowy-gold colour and I can see it would have looked good.

what are the forks ? are you keeping them on it or have you considered putting your rebound forks on it ?

Lee,

I have indeed cosidered to do that...that would look totally nuts I guess! What do you think?

Should look somehow similar to the Monolith bike I think :D

No, it's from a guy in the MTB-news board. I don't know if he still has it...It is awesome, isn't it?

At that time Mountain Bike Action stated "Lightest, tickest suspension bike ever!" I remember that frame and fork alone traded for over 5000 USD in '92-'93

Thanks, Lee! What is your opinion on putting a Manitou III on the trimble?

Cheers

I think that due to the thick and straight design Manitous will fit better than a RS1...But currently it is not easy to find one for a reasonable price! I was also thinking about a yellow MAG10 but I'm not sure that colors will match...

Jeff's Trimble looks a little bit like it should be riden by Sponge Bob :lol:
