i quite like the drops.

At the time i thought that whole era of grey marins with a bit of bright colour was a year in year out aesthetic bore fest.

...but now I think they've aged rather well. Look quite nice.


:D

Do the STIs work well with the canti brakes?


they seem to work fine - fairly easy to adjust them....

Nice bike that.

I really like the old Marins. Happy memories of mates riding them.

I for one would love one.

(They are pretty rare to find these days too - compared with konas)

:D
