The beast of the east is brilliant.

That and the dyna tech for me.

Would love to ride those bikes.

Heck of a line up!

I wonder what the BiTD retail total on them would be. Probably around $25K US or a bit north


The Marin Ti was £1896 back in 1990. Here's the receipt. The Ringle skewers and seat post clamp were added 2 days later.
Would be £3013 in today's money

Around this time I was busy flashing my flexible friend ( that's my Access card. Not a euphemism) at a Marin Pine Mountain in South Bank Cycles in London. Paid £440 for and probably still paying off the interest. The PM would be £765 today and the 2016 Pine 29r is £759. Saviiiing.

Thanks for the comments


Wowsers!!

My Kestel would have been $1100US for the Frameset, figure $800 for the XC Pro and another $800 for all the bling and I'd be at about $2700US in 1991. Luckily the 2015 cost was a lot less :D

Some lovely bike this month, It shows the amount of decent bike out there and I'm sure this is only a small amount of them.
Thanks for including mine. The DB needs a clean down but really enjoying riding her over the muddy downs.

Oh wow. I honestly wasn't sure where I'd fall. The Merlin and Fat were so well done and I wouldn't have changed a thing on that Rocky Mountain.

A humble thank you for the votes!
