I built it last summer and would like to show it here, maybe you like it.

Cheers

Hi, very nice frame, i will watch this build with keen interest! Sorry to be picky, but i bought a new Marin Pine Mountain in 1993 and your frame and graphics look like a 1993 from that year to my eye. It may be that they sold it in 1994.

Cool frame :)

One question though - that rear end - is it supposed to be that long? It looks as if the stanchions are too far out?

Agree with this, looks like a '93 to me :?

Very nice either way, watching with interest. 8)

the rear end is ok, it's just an optical illusion! :lol:

well could also be a '93, 'm not sure. :roll:

A Marin FRS must of course always be with manitou fork, can not do otherwise.

Ok now it's about the parts. I chose the beautiful XT 730-5 group
