I'm putting my Marin back together which i've had from new. I changed all the running gear 13 years ago and sold it which i now regret.

Got most of the bits I need now but cannot remember what length BB this came with (122 mm I think) or if the rear DX mech was long or short cage.

Can anyone advise please ?

Thanks

Steve
