What about lots of sewing equipment such as needles, cotton, reels and thimbles? It would go with the name of your frame "THIMBLE".

Errr Trimble.... :?

Groan.

Hey Jez,

I've got a copy of an old Mountain Biker at home which has your bike on it, and another with a tiger stripe...it stated that they were the first two in the country, back in 1991 - 92 I think...sorry though dude, no scanner :(

Gotta say I HATE the tier stripe. Feisian Cow hide would be good.

Wasn't there one on here a while ago?

The best mono colour has to be pearlescent white.

How about a linear split like the pink/blue Cotic Soul or the Blue/Green Fat.

You get to have two colours then!

I don't think I've helped :oops:

Jez,
Noticed your still having trouble with the whole front mech thing. couple of pics from the flyingsuperpetis auctions gives me the conclusion of a drilled pinch-bolt as a cablestop going through to a allen bolt on th back of the B/B shell (as you can see) .
hope it helps :wink:

I saw one of those seat post mast bits snap off at the MHC, I think '92? He was doing trials on it, not wise.
