Loved mine!

Super short chain stays, disc mount, V brake mounts, brushed finish, takes a seat, short wheel base, low bb = good for street.

Cons = silly big bash plate, V brake mounts (no 4 bolt) always crack at the seat tube where the top tube and seat stay meet (I can remember reading years ago, one of the reasons for it going in this place is because riders wouldn't run a saddle and seat post - The seat post would actually reduce the amount of flex in this area of the frame):unsure:

Wow, not seen a TA26 since the mid 2000's!

I always wanted one back then. Bet they're getting quite hard to find now, I'd buy it if it's a good price :)

I love those 26’s with the little seat, proper old school trials bike

Weird that you should comment on this now, I saw a TA26 at a pump track in Bristol last night... What are the chances of that?
