I really want some gallery feature on this site. I could post so many pic of builds and componentry.
Anyway - heres a load of trimble pics that I uncovered (mainly from MTBR) just as a reference. Look at all the funky paintjobs....
Hey Jez, great to see so many Trimble pics! I have 4-1 same as yours I think with the drilled drop outs. It started off life Black with the coloured decals (belomged to a mate then).
It then got stolen and was missing for a year or so. Then another mate spotted an ad in MBUK for a Trimble with (believe it or not) the exact same component spec!! We called up on the pretense that we wanted to buy it and sure enough it was his bike! Frame number (222) still intact. Called the old bill and the rest is history. The muppet that nicked it sprayed the entire bike (wheels / frame / components - everything!) PINK!!
At this point I bought the bike (for Â£200 IIRC) and set about restoring it. It now has an amazing stars and stripes paint job (front end stars / rear end stripes) and is built up with bullseye / revolver cranks / 7 speed XT etc. I'll try and get some pics sorted. Will have to dust it down, it's been stuck up in the loft for quite a while!
Really must get it fixed up and ride it!
