Nice!

I'd like to have a go on a Trimble to see what they're like - I find it hard to imagine!

very much like a Klein. Stiff and light. The Pace rigid fork and hope hubs make the front softer that a Klein. Shame we are so far apart, other wise you could have a go. If ever in London let me know. Or if i visit Scotland.
Thanks

Its a design that will go on and never age. Compare this to a 07 Trimble. Except for the rear bike and the internal cable route. They look the same.

Yes, I had heard about the exstortionate price of just the chainrings alone.
Still - you've gotta try this new-fangled stuff just to appreciate the old stuff.

mine is STILL sat waiting for some parts but should be finished soon(money permitting)
