This is tough.

Old Marins I liked (1990-1993) but anything after just seemed a little undesirable.

I really dont know which way to vote. :?

Old or new. Still not cool. If it was a car it would be Kia or Ford Focus at best

Surely a better analogy would be liking Marin to a make of car, like Ford, for example?

They made a few good ones, the Team Issue for one, but overall I'm saying uncool.

As I recall, there isn't even a Marin 'factory'. Did Marin ever actually make something themselves? Aren't they like Kona and VooDoo and others who just buy from suppliers and apply decals? :?

Sorry BF, but maybe a few more punctuation marks would make that comment a little more clear? :?
