Wow, the colours on that Marin and Fat Chance make them look like Barnet FC (or Hull City) inspired bikes. Which might not mean much since you're in the States. Sorry, I love football.


No way! Who would have suspected you were a football fan? 8) :lol:

The color is a mix of solid yellow and translucent red powdercoat. I googled the Barnet FC kit, I think this color I mixed up for a road frame is closer:

Can you tell I like orange, yellow, and black color combos? :oops:

Maxter, that Dakota is one of my favorites.

karlomax, I really like your Bertin, the stem and riding position look very similar to the Diamond Back I posted above-I was surprised how much I liked the way it felt and handled. Great find, and great thread.

Haha, traditionally our kit is more amber, but in recent times it's been more orange ... but I digress :)

I really like that Bertin, I've not seen one before. Who are the hub brakes made by?

Loving the Redlines and the Conquest. This thread perfectly shows why 'retro' should be pre 1990 8)
