The forks are Canondale peperami alloy 1991 vintage and Trigon carbons

So your saying they made a Trimble ( The clear coated one ) in 2005? That is amazing! Maybe the lightest mountain bike in this thread! Ha

 Yes. Brent Trimble's relations started the company again from 2005-2007 with two frames 26er & 29er disc brakes only. frame weighs 3lb 2oz for 20''

But again things went wrong and stopped production. I won this 2005 V brake frame on e-bay in 2011. 

Dean bikes own the moulds now  for Trimbles and they made 20 frames with a Dean badge on back in the late 90's. Dean Luner i think it was called.

Anybody have any experience plasti-dipping bikes? Was thinking about tearing down my daily rider and dipping it matte white.

I wouldn't try.... It'd get dirty fast.

The last of the Cannondales made in America! I have a CAAD 9 w/ Dura Ace. 'Tis a fun ride. And smooth. Oh so smooth.

But I don't really know what to do with it-LA is a TERRIBLE city for biking, and once I'm old enough to get my license, well...I guess I'll still ride for fun sometimes, just no longer for "commuting."

And you won't even get dirty if you use full sized fenders.

Getting dirty is part of the fun though!

Cleaning the bike every week isn't so much fun. Theraputic in summer, but downright horrid in winter.

Don't really mind it getting dirty. And haven't been arsed to get studded tires so no winter riding for me, which kinda sucks because the winter isn't exactly short over here :(

I don't mind the rain too much, as long as it pours nonstop. I hate off and on showers.

I live on the equator so it's too hot all the time. Learning to ride in light rain is a joy. There is also a cool breeze just when it's starts to rain every afternoon in rainy season.

Though, I haven't been in the saddle most of autumn (blame it on the Egg nog! rolleyes.gif ) , I continue to be inspired by your rides and pix! Thank you.

Something shiny and biked shaped coming in 5 days....
...Ok, not that shiny, but certainly bike shaped.
If anyone guesses the model then they can have many internet points (yes this is an unreasonable challenge :p )
