This is my wife's bike. And her fantastic matching shoes :)

Its a lot lighter than any of my mtbs.
I'm not sure exactly what year it is, but it had a DX/XT mix of bits on it. Its packed in a box in the states, waiting for us to have the cash to send it here to Aus.

I bought the same bike new, a old farmer in a Land Rover thought it'd look better as a wall hanging when it was a year old. :cry:

yeah, that is pretty impressive! I bought this bike for $130US BIN and its probably the biggest bargain I've ever come across. I think everything, except peds, is original in that pic. the seat was still fairly comfy too.
Thanks a heap for the compliments, the wife is very chuffed! And now thinks her marin is clearly superior to my old bridgestone that i put up on the same day :)

Don't know how it compares with other frames, but I've just stuck my mangled frame on the scales, 2305 grams. I have fond memorys of mine before it was wrecked.
