1991 Trimble

The Trimble was a very revolutionary bike in its day.  Pretty much all the conventional frame design was tossed out the window.  The design is reminiscent of the "cross frames" from the turn of the century.  This bike has the earlier 3 hole drop outs (pre-suspension corrected geometry) but the later external cable guides.
