Right - good spot re forks. So far I have described seatstay as chainstays and RC35s as RC36s. Tw*t. And I am PICKY about being correct about detail; don’t know why I am being so cr*p today....

Hi,
Great bike, so beautiful.
I don't think he’s welded by Gary Helfrich, dropout looks like Litespeed with two holes. Probably second batch made for Marin.
Good sale.

Thanks for the insight re series. When the frame came into the UK there was some discussion about whether GF had made it - I was pretty sure it was Litespeed-built and as you say it has the two-hole rear dropout. People often laughed at the U brake and then when they saw the power of it, plus it stopping the weeny seatstays from bowing outwards under braking...they quickly changed their minds.
