Like that a lot - nice, simple, classic - easy on the eye. My sort of bike, that - even though I've never had a Marin.

Always liked DX as a groupset, and thumbies (although I have no issues with the push-push STIs) - very nice.

Looking great really classic Marin and despite being a lover of the zolatone the black BV always a winner in my books! I changed mine to DX kit too and black rims...yeah the flag is only on the drive side but I had none on mine! :lol:...although on my other Marins the flag is between the rear cable guide and the seattube but hey thats just being picky! Oh and the "Race Bred" is only on the drive side seat stays too...

Sweet looking machine

Doug
