Well thats about a third of what I have just spent on my latest Marin Eldridge thats just the one model up! And about a tenth of what my Team cost me after all my fiddling! Go girl! My missus is hankering after a Marin herself after years of riding a tank of a Giant that was all of £150 10 years ago. I will find her something Zolatone and Marin as soon as I stop buying for myself!



It gets better.... she beat the seller down :facepalm:

'WE' will be selling the Palisades, now that the Bear Valley has arrived.

YUP!


Ahh the perfect retro family you must be proud! I am currently educating/brainwashing my three and a half year old son! And I think my wife is definately leaning towards the retro way!

You cannot beat a Bear Valley in my opinion - it has taken some years to prove it though, if one can ride it in a high position in one's spd slippers and plus 4's on the "big ring" up a hill on the very first outing (after a break of a good 12 - 15 years) who knows what adventures lay ahead once I get fit?! And it's got........a stand! Fancy that.

Yes, I am proud to be a trooper. The future of the Palisades could most likely be negotiated with Neil M. He paid for all the bits except the bike and delivery himself!
