This seem like a good place to post this picture as my needs are for a Marin Mount Vision (I think)

I had this frame stripped and then I painted it with simoniz tough black and it's come out nice, I have some air forks, 319 rims and 1 x 10 set up for it but I can't find any information about the pivots and how to rebuilt/renew and fix them.

I have play in the bottom pivot and believe I have missing hardware, the bottom of the swing arm will drift side to side at the lower point.
I just have a metal rod and 2 bolts for that section. I've tried packing washers there but it stopped the swing arm moving altogether. If you can help I'd really appreciate it.
Bearings are new.

Please leave a message or pm me with what I need and if possible some pictures.

Do any Marin boinger owners know how fat a tyre can fit on the rear? I'm guessing 2.35 at the least, but it would be useful to know.

I’ve followed this thread since the beginning and eventually I’m getting around to doing a full refurb on my beloved 1998 Mount Vision. I managed to find a bloke selling a swingarm with disc tabs so on go the Vintage Hope calliper number 5s! Really struggling to make a final decision on the colour though. Pearl Black appeals. It’s going to be stealth I think. I always loved the original colour but the decals are too far gone so I’m going for a full new spray job. I’ll post some pictures when I get it back from the paint shop.

On a more hilarious note, I spotted this for sale on Facebook market. The rarely seen Orange FRS. Made in Halifax - just outside of California!!! The guy is selling it as an Orange DH bike. Oh dear....

Just bought this, not arrived yet.
I think it’s a 2000? It has aftermarket front end I think?

I think that’s a year 2000 Marin. Although I thought they’d all gone to discs on the rear swing arm by then - can’t see from the photo but it’s probably got the flat plate to add an adaptor I’d imagine.

What’s your plans for this one? Those forks look monsters!
