We have had this bike for a while now but I took some better pictures. Someone had wanted a picture of the front derailleur cable routing so I tried to show that. More pics/details @ https://www.firstflightbikes.com/1991_Trimble.htm

Very nice. Strangely it reminds me of Randy Rhoads Flying V.

Don't you at times feel greedy Jeff? How many of those gems have you got now!!??

If you ever feel guilty about hoarding them give me a call. ;)

i never quite worked out how the cable routing such as this worked...i rode a yeti in err, 1990? or so? and it was the same...but surely if the cable is bolted to the frame nothing can move? i *know* it works cos ive used it but how?
As you push that shift lever, something has got to move because you're, in effect, shortening the cable. As you say, it's not going to be the frame, so that cable housing "pushes" the front derailleur arm towards that fixed cable pinch point as that last piece of exposed cable is shortened.

Aha - I know how it works now for my Trimble. Just need to find a "stop" like that to bolt to the front mech. I think the stops are actually found on Roadie calliper brakes (So I have been informed)
