theres plenty of trailstars on the bay ,

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/DMR-Trailstar-Mou ... 240%3A1318

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/DMR-Trailstar-Cus ... 240%3A1318

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/DMR-Trailstar-Whi ... 240%3A1318

and those are just whats on at the moment :lol: but be aware the white one is threaded bottombracket/vertical dropouts and is regarded as a mk2 . easiest way of spotting is the APS mounts

Mmmm...ok, to continue the ramble....what new steel would you consider?


New steel I've thought about has been, cotic's, dialled bikes, charge dusters and a rather nice salsa on the bay at the moment. But TBH I'm not too aware of whats available out there today.

Litespeed. Mine has been fantastic, disc compatible, 100mm corrected (+ semi integrated headset so if you have a small frame like mine it doesnt jack the front up) light, well made, look good and they can be had for a god price too - oh, and they seem to hold their value, I have seen them go for more on eBay than I paid for mine in 2004 (same year, size, model). I love it.

Hummer's, Airbornes and Globals also seem to go for around the same price too, but, imho the Litespeeds are better made and look smarter.

one of the few 'retro' bikes that would hold up today would be the later Hei Hei's or even a score if you can find one (more aggressive geometry for the day, but about right by todays standards)


Good few for the list, would love a Litespeed and the Kona's tick alot of boxes too. :)

How about a DMR Trailstar. I've been thinking the same thing about getting shot of my susser and getting a 'do-it-all' steel hardtail. Can't afford a new one though, so I'm keeping an eye out for a good condition second hand 'un.



and perry

Not something that was even on my radar, worth looking into you think? How does the geometry stack up for 'normal' riding.

I've been looking at Cove Handjobs in the same variety as the above. Worth a look.
