I still like the idea of one of these done tastefully. Yes really. I do sometimes.

Well...

:lol:


Very interesting thread, really informative. Particularly the drop outs. I'd never paid any attention to those. I have a lot of love for the Whytes, I've had two Marin FRS bikes designed by JW, still got the 2005 one which looks very much like the PRST4 in the swingarm region and front end design, but obviously without the link fork.

Hope you find something suitable Jas/ :)

I was driving back from a house hunting mission in North Yorkshire today when I notice something over my shoulder.........

The new boss was slightly surprised by a detour through the middle of York with a short restrained stop. Could’ve left with far more ........ :xmas-big-grin: :?:

took a bit of a punt......... Barn find condition.

A lot of weird bike for very little money. Means I have a good budget for improvements.

What would you have paid for it?

shimmed post. Were they all 30.0mm?

On the seatpost, mine's shimmed down to 27.0mm (like a lot of Marins) branded Whyte.

All the best,

The freak is languishing in the shed of not my shed and I have no tools to tinker here.

Plus being very good is killing me.
