Heresy time!
My 1990 Palisades, doing service as a tourer since 1995. It's toured in Europe, Asia, Australia and NZ, done two years as a commuter in Singapore (as well as the UK). The last bike I'll ever sell, owned since 1991 by me.
Photo at the 2010 TdF, doing what it does best!


Thats a bike...forget the money...forget the spec...its the memories that count :D

I have a Marin Team Titanium, quite a stiff ride with the Accutrax. I have a Team fork I must try one day. Love the classic looks of the early Team bikes.



Like that! On my want list!

There is no point in a light frame on a tourer, in fact often they end up too wibbly when loaded up. In fact it has lots of nice bits so is only 25lbs with racks and mudguards. It's rock steady at 40mph downhill even with 4 panniers and a barbag.

My Team Titanium! :)

Always wanted one of these when I bought my '95 Pine Mountain, so slowly built this one up over a few months and is now my ride of choice over anything else!

Room for one more?

This is my '95 Palisades Trail, which I bought new from Channels in Essex.

It's lived indoors it's whole life - and gets pampered after every offroad ride.

Quite a few bits have been replaced over the past 18 years but the cranks, chainrings, front mech and bottom bracket are the original parts.
