Marin Muirwoods 1997. 17" Tange Triple butted cromoly Frame. Should be double butted Tange for the year so not sure if it is triple butted or the wrong sticker is on it! The frame serial number is for an Eldridge Grade of same year that was tipple butted, so mibbe its that frame with Muirwoods colours. Frame Weighs 5.3 ibs. Have built it up with a Manitou Spyder 99 fork. Shimana m590 Hollowtch 2 triple chainset, Mavic 317 wheels on xt hubs,alivio rear mech, Deore DX front mech. Hg50 7 speed Cassette. Original Marin alloy seatpost and FSA Orbit XL2 Headset. Stem and Bars are alloy Halfords and nowt to right home about but light enough and no problems so far. Seat, tyres,pedals,V Brakes and 7 speed Gripshift MRX Shifters are from Rockrider 5.0 that I broke when started Marin build and all work ok. Total weight is just under 28ibs. Great all round bike unless trails get really rough. Would like a better fork cos no damping on Spyder but apart from that it's all good and works fine. If i use original cromoly forks it weighs just 26.5 ibs.
