Had the same bike briefly with single crowns, but mine was labelled DH FRS. I have pics somewhere if you search readers bike 1998+
Sold mine on again as it was purchased on a whim, but I would like another if I could find it cheap enough. Mine had the original shockworks rear shock which was pretty basic, and factoring in a new shock and disc brakes (and therefore wheels) I thought it not really feasible for a cheap project.
Yours looks real nice though.
I have seen your bike thread as its one of a few threads out there regarding the frame that you had , from what i can gather tho what you had was the frame only they offered so people who wanted to race could build one up on a budget/spec they wanted .
The team DH however was different beast , a factory built race bike that had all the top end spec,hope big un hubs front and rear with mavic 521 D rims ,hope disc brakes front and rear,full xt,proper usa white industries cranks,crank chain guard mech/wheels,Triple clamp forks that cost 1300 quid alone,i was told by someone that very few was imported as a full team bike because of the cost ,anyhow i knew most of this from memory as i had one ,but what i am after is some original marin catalogue pics or press releases ?
I wouldnt sell this now ,i have did not think i would ever see another one again,especially as mint as this ether ,i was lucky to get it and it was cheap as i think it world break to more than the 260 i gave for her
