Why are Marins so pretty??IMO

tops marks that man, how can you bear to give it away though?

Thanks for all the praise lads, and in answer to your question mate it's always hard to give them away at the end but when I just used to build them for myself it was getting a bit nuts, having 2 or 3 bikes at a time is enough for anyone.

When my friends started to show an interest I jumped at the chance to build them bikes now we're on to friends or friends etc so I'm building about one a month, the only problem is that it's hard to perswade people that aren't really into it that disc brakes aren't that important (especially when my modern rig's got them)

A really lovely build there, with some great attention to detail. Almost too pretty to ride.
A Flite would finish it off perfectly though.
