Last year I would have been happy with a 'plain black ' trimble, whether it won BOTM or not - all trimble owners should be proud to own such a masterpiece, they are all individual and all have their own beauty :wink:

Sigh! I was suppsed to get my tiger stripe ones ready this weekend but still need a few bits (waiting for some stuff to come from states).

They do ride pretty well although my old black one (TinTins one) was built up pretty heavy with the Prostop stuff etc. Like to see how light you can get the whole build as the frame isnt mega lightweiht by any means. Whats your one weighing in like TinTin?

I'm not sure of the weight. Still looking for some scales. But it lost 1/2 pound by changing to cook bro candy ti pedals :shock: from SPD
An educated guess around 22.1/2lb - 23.1/2lb Which is an excellent weight considering the frame is 4lb.An 07 frame is nearly a 1lb lighter plus use WCS Ritchey carbon forks and lose 1/2 lb compared to pace rc31c. plus v brakes on the back and this 07 bike would be 21lb or less. Sorry i've gone off on my adiction again :shock: Off to the Doc's for some more pills :lol:
