There was a 'general recall' of the original seatpost (Bontrager/Titec) for this Marin (source: Team Marin review, MBI Feb 1995).

Interesting comment about the Titec seatpost recall. I guess that is why I have never seen one.

Here is the infamous White Industries Cranks

.....and the Marin lite cantis.

These photos are cool because they also show the original Marin Quake tyres and the perfect condition of the Mavic 230SBP rim sidewalls.

I remember weighing a 230 rim BITD when it got a bit taco'd and needed replacing. 370g or something as I recall. Its taken Stan quite a while to come up with anything lighter and Mavic's only seem to be getting heavier. Still, they weren't the strongest eh?

...........the middle, and finally the rear.

That is all the photos I've got for now.

Off to the garage now to get that left hand shifter case fixed!

Hope you have enjoyed these pics as much as I have!

Cheers, Matt
