Yeah, Tange Chromoly, these lower end frames didn't have that much in the way of butting... Bear Valley (one up the range) had butted seat stays...

Great geometry though... my first MTB was a new 94 Palisades... had it for about two weeks before chopping it in for an Indian Fire Trail!

From memory Chris, steel Marin range was (low to high)

Hawk Hill (Gas Pipe!)
Bobcat Trail
Muirwoods
Palisades Trail
Bear Valley
Bear Valley SE (Ooooh... basically STX RC instead of plain old STX)
Eldridge Grade
Pine Mountain
Team Marin (Getting into Prestige tubing...)
Team Issue

Which all means fourth in the range - not my original punt of third! :D

:) It's a lovely frame. I'd say it feels better than anything else I've yet ridden down the Halloween Tree Dodge. I'll have to take the Zaskar down there next time I can.

I think the BV se had the forged marin lite stem as a token gesture. The team marin had/has tange ultimate tubing. Above the issue model iirc. Great year for marin though, they were all worth owning and had the nice tin head tube badge. Paintwork easily touched up with almost any chanpagne silver by holts. :)
