8) I remember that Holdsworth bike too, there was an advert in a mag and I remember thinking it was one of the classiest looking racers at the time. I was still heaving about on my raliegh catalogue job :D

Mine was 19'' tig wealded version. The early one's were lugged. I would most certainly sell a Trimble for a 19'' Explorer in mint. My garage Queen :D

Anyone know what years had the chainstay mounted U-brake? Mine had one and I'm sure it was 86-87 but it was a long time ago and the memory ain't what it was! :roll:

I believe the 1987 one had a chainstay mounted rollercam and the 1988 one (pictured) had a c'stay mounted Suntour XCD 6000 u brake.

Can't remember what or indeed if, the explorer looked like in 86.
