It was a shame to split it up, but I can assure you the frame is going to a good home (this isn't to gloat by the way).
Having started on a Bobcat Trail in 1993 and then getting into retro bikes a couple of years ago (please see this thread http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?p=626242
) I have been riding a 1993 Marin for the last few years. Including trips with my daughters around Ashton Court and Leigh Woods, commuting into work and also taking on any bikers I see in the woods - trying my hardest to keep up with their new £3000 machines as I am barely able to hold on. The satisfaction of hitting hard lines on a rigid bike where others expect you to fall is brilliant.
Anyway the time has come for an upgrade, my Yeti and DMR are sitting neglected in the garage as I spend more time as a cross country rider and will go for a good build of this frame.
