Trimble Monocoque

    Newer Older

    Hand built in Nattick Mass., it's a monocoque frame, built with Fibreglass and Kevlar (polyester resin). It has a serial number less than 100 (86, I think). 72 degree seat post angle, Full Campy Chorus Groupo, Look pedals, Scott Tri-bar, Specialized Tri-spoke, Tange fusion aluminum forks, Trimble Water Bottle carrier, Avenir cyclometer, Continental tubular tires, and bladed spokes on the front wheel...

    Acording to computer models, after about 20kph there was no difference between a normal front triangle and this one. The theory was that the force of the air moving around a normal frame created a "wall" that acted the same as the solid front triangle.

    stands on stilts, milon0905, and 14 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      I sold it to a collector in Calgary.

      It has/had an internal compartment that I used to store a spare tubular tire (yes, tubular), and a pump.

      It was made of Fiberglass and Kevlar. It looked a little weird, but went really fast.

      Awesome photo, where did you get that bike? My dad built them back in the day. We still race these bikes to this day.
