Some days i agree with you. The red looks good. But then i see the blue and then change my mind :roll:
Also it's much much better in the 'flesh' than the pictures. Trimble's always had thin paints. But the shine they have is so good. The black frames are piano gloss.
I'd love to meet some one from the factory. And know more about the back ground of this frame. Why was it never used?? Alas the seller was an e-bay knob. So I'll never know.

Smooth. But the BB area is very stiff. So forward motion is instant. Some time it feels like a uni cycle (i've never ridden a uni-cycle) as in no top tube. So much space. Just perched up on the seat. If riding with no hands. Brent Trimble wanted to make a comfortable bike and he did.
