That's a 93 model.

Back then, the geometry was brutal, for your lumbar spine anyway.

I would stick with it and enjoy the big frame, that will help offer a decent riding position. Less exposed seat post kind of thing.

Nice marin our kid

Thanks. Amended to 93. If it's a stretch too far I'll do my thing with it. Might put some Schwalbe CX tyres on too. No expense. Zero cost shed bits build. Most of it looks serviceable.
