So here's my new Marin Bear Valley SE. I think it's from 1995, but am not sure! Does anybody knows?

By the way, it's not completely original, but it wil be in the near future! :D

The early Marin's are lovely! I have been after one for a while but they all seem to be on the large side!

If you need any help getting original spec (1995) I should be able to help as my old man still has a pretty imaculate original spec one, only thing different maybe the inertubes, but then probably not :lol:

Can your 'old man' tell me if this one is indeed from 1995?

Cheers,

He couldn't but I could ;-)*
Catalouge is in the Gallery & Archive, http://www.retrobike.co.uk/gallery2/mai ... emId=12577
though there is a thread in here somewhere on dating Marin's from the serial (I think)



*I woudl say it is, look right, Marin light cantis and original blocks (stradle is wrong). Rear wheel wrong, SRT600(should not have blue grips though) and Diacompe SS-9 ? levers, foam handlebargrip, STX-RC groupset. Correct stem/post/QR etc.. also.
