It looks a little small for you in this pic, have you considered a 29er.
Then again with such little legs finding the correct geometry may be an issue,

Handmade would me the way to go, but expensive.

Cheers Will, thanks for the kind words and yes it is a great ride and takes me back 20 years! Notice you have a 93 BV in your nice collection, any chance of a pic?


Hi Shaun, yes, I've got a 93 BV. Very nice to ride. At the moment it has a Manitou II fork, but the original fork is also present. More pictures are in the album.

Probably I'm able to get my hands on a similar 93 EG like yours... although without all the red parts i think..

Cheers,
Will

Nice BV Will, if my memory serves me correctly, the SE is exactly the same frame as the EG and PM, it was just the group set and wheels that changed, and of course the colour. I like the Manitous on yours, they look perfect and after using mine for a short time on ridgids, I would stick with the Manitous.

My plans are to clean up and new decals... :wink:

Then try and get it like it came from marin, With dx and lx spec...got most of the parts...just need to find some good foam grips and bottle cages.

I even have the correct wheels with the red alloy nipples :)

But it is a size too big...this is a 19" and i need 17.5" :facepalm:

Thanks
