Beautiful.


Really, I liked the pink cable housing. Helped draw your eye to the stem rather than just to the frame/fork...ok, and the hubs. In the absence of all that pink, I'd normally vote for black on green (like my Santa Cruz). But you already dove into the pink end of the palette - embrace it dude.


That bike ain't never gonna be a wallflower.

Those old 120tpi Marin Lite kevlar bead tyres from around 1994 could be worth quite a bit to the owner of a serious Marin retro build. :idea:

Surely those Hugi's were the PERFECT wheels for this bike :?:

Still think it looked best with amber walls too!

Just my opinion!

after a short break has done something on grello

A San Marco will serve as a saddle, I think it fits very well with my seatpost.

I have embellished a couple of xt pedals

Image

Image

after polishing and paint look like new :wink:

Image

..and make a good figure with the Cooks, here is a comparison

with xt pd-m737
Image

and with xt pd-m735

Now waiting for onza procs tires, salsa saddle clamps, onza chill pills, true temper bar (and probably other rims, the hügi hubs will remain on it :wink: )

cheers
