this is the only model year of Marin bikes i ever liked 8)

also, if you're interested i have a mavic 231 in good condition with plenty of wear available if you want to replace the rear rim so it's all matching, it's a 32 hole i think.

:D


Thanks to you, but the 117 SUP is also an early 90's rim, so it's ok for me :)

Yes, I love that color... It's IMO the only "real" early 90's Marin color :wink: :mrgreen:

I still have to add the wires and the chain and it's ok :-)
I've changed the tyres for amberwall 90 Continental Atlanta, a NOS seatpost and changed the pedal straps. :D
