The small 1992 Bear Valley was stripped for spares, and replaced by one exactly the same but in a larger size. This was designed to be used for trips into town, abandoned outside the butcher etc.
However, wasn't getting on with it, and so will be selling it on at some point soon. Replaced by a 1987 Schwinn: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=302104
I'm using the 1990 Marin Team Issue fairly regularly now, absolutely love it.
