Hello all, new to RetroBike and thought I'd share my current project restoring my 1995 Marin Pine Mountain. I bought new from ShokWave in Nottingham back in 1995, it was my main bike for 5 years, then kids arrived followed by Spec StumpJumper FSR and more recently a Cube Cross Race. I've just started the strip down and since the (Marin) White Industries crank has polished up so nicely, thought I'd share some pictures.

And I have a question, in my enthusiasm to strip the crank down I didn't follow my usual methodical approach and now need to advice on reassembly, the larger ring as a locating peg which I assume lines with the crank arm, the middle ring has an obvious outside, but is there a particular alignment, the smaller ring has some writing on one side, is this the inside? All advice very welcome.

hi you will notice that the middle ring has a slightly different shape to one of the five inner edges, like a slight wave. the others are plain, i can see it on the pic but can't explain fully :oops: that lies with the arm as per the peg with the outer ring. the small ring ought to be fixed so the writing faces into the frame.

good luck mate.
