Just got delivery of a Marin Quake 5.0 FRS.
The frame is in very good condition with only a few minor marks, scratches and a few teeny dings.
I'll get more pics up as and when I get things done.
It'll take a while I'm guessing.
I was also wondering if anyone knew if an A2Z disc adaptor would fit or if it would be safe to modify either frame or the adaptor.

edit:
a2z doesn't fit :(

None that I could see. I'll give it a really good going over later.

Updated pics.

The SiD forks and SiD rear shock are being kept for the Spesh FSR frame I'm hoping to be getting (if & when the posties ever go back to work :evil: ).

Brake & gear cable outers are white. I've used Hope cable guides for the rear brake to use a full outer.

Yes, they do need to be cut to length!!!!!!!!!!

I also have a 'Transfil Gear Cable Waterproof Kit' to keep everything nice and watertight.

Final update for the Quake. Just finished building it then it's going to a good home as I sold it to fund the Spesh FSR.
