I've moved to New Zealand and left my old Palisades Trail in the UK, which I never got around to fixing up. To fill the void, I kept an eye out for old Marin's over here. Today, I bought an old Muirwoods for a tenner! Bargain!
I can't work out what year it is, as the paint job doesn't seem to match the catalogues in the archive. It has stickers saying its a Tange cro-mo butted tubes...Anyways, I'm thinking of doing the following to it:
- Strip and paint job, not sure what colour yet but its definitely going to have a lot of fluro
- New gears, crankset, cassette, etc - I'm thinking maybe Shimano LXS or XT...if that fits?
- New decals;
- New grips;
I am hoping the wheels are okay, but I've heard you sometimes need to get new wheels if the new gears need a new hub. This is the first time I've done a lot of this so if anyone has an tips I'm all ears
