OOoo exciting I too had a 97 Marin Quake it was my first full suss loved it...until I bent it some years back! Even did a London to Brighton on it and got a lot of respect from other riders for doing it retro and on a full suss downhiller!...

...I have a new man cave now a garage with a door integrated into the house with my Marin family of 4 tucked up nicely! Now I can fettle and stare as often as I like! In my last house they were in a shed 50 meters from my house...

Like the sound of the Pine FRS but you sure its a 97? I think by then it was all Mount Vision, Rift Zone and Quakes...How did you find the Y22 nearly bought one a couple of months back but it went too high on ebay...

...Have you seen this Quake on ebay at the mo? Was tempted myself!
