Those disc rear wheel covers - I dont care if Elvis did own one, they're the cycling equivalent of stone lions at the end if your driveway.
So I guess it's okay if I put one on my bikes then?

You don't have to worry about being shunned if you go with black.

Why no love for post Zolatone Marins?

I'm currently restoring a nickel plated Orange P7 and having done a 94 Team Issue previously, i can confirm that the plated finish of the Marin was massively better than the P7... In similar spec, I'm sure the P7 was more expensive BITD...

And Marins 93 colour schemes are uber cool. 93 Eldridge anyone?

I've committed a few of the faux pas mentioned... but hell - that all part of learning what works!

Absolutely!!!

Any Marin upto and including 1995 is cool in my book.
