Here i present to you my latest acquisition a very original Marin Nail Trail from 1994. In the past i've used to own a Pine Mountain also from 1994 but they are hard to find.[ I've only changed the tyres cause i like the butterscotch color next to the alumininum. Bike is specced with Shimano STX SE, marin lite components and ritchey rock 440 wheels. It's not been used much. My plans for it keep it original maybe a Manitou 3 if i can find one. Anyone one on offer??

very good! clean for the year.

keep it rigid, the right manitous without flumps for elastomers can be a pain to get hold of.

hope you enjoy it 8)

Lovely. I had one the same as this but never got to use it as I discovered cracks in the drive side seat stay half way between the dropout and canti mounts. Scrap I'm afraid.

Thnx for the compliments! Think i will ride rigid then.. Since elastomers/springs are more costly than the Manitou forks on offer... :evil: :evil:
