Right, the Marin's had another little remix for winter and looks much less flashy for it I reckon. I sold the M739 brakes and reverted to Avid Single Digits which suit me just fine - still tons of power, less bling but a wee little bit lighter I think. The red-walled Panaracers have also found a new home and have been replaced by a pair of brand new Maxxis Ignitor 2.1" - a great UK all-rounder IMHO - and bought as part of a job lot so, once I'd sold off the rest, cost me a fiver! And the bike is a custom build so not bothered about period tyres anyway!
Still experimenting with stem rise
depending on how my back's feeling, and Sithlord took the recovered Avocet saddle off my hands, in place of a trusty Body Geometry which I've been using since it came with my (then) new '05 Hardrock Pro - mmm comf! And some red frame bolts to finish her off
not that you can see them on the photo! Crank bolts caps are in the post
