Hi, Just picked up this Marin from the local tip shop.

Could someone help with the model? From the components it seems a base model.

Cheers

Wayne

I don't think it's a Pine Mountain, unless someone has swapped out a lot of components. The Pine Mountain was near top of the range at the time and had mix of Deore DX and XT components.

I think it's a 1993 Muirwoods, the stem and handlebars are the right colour as are the Altus components: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/gallery2/d/12573-2/1993.pdf

It does look like the 93 Muirwoods and the spec fits.

Benandemu here wrote a really good identification guide:

I'd have said Muirwoods too... but second letter should be a 6. Looks like a 0.

Matches the catalogue. Good find - I had to pay a fair amount for my '94 Palisades Trail in similar condition.
