19" I think, better measure it, yes 19" centre to top of seat tube.
Seat tube clamp and a black Thomson seat post with it. But no shock.
Paint not great but I would be happy with it, I would have cleaned
the clag from around the bottle bolt holes and painted those bits with
epoxy primer. I was goin to get a shock but I have to get rid of a lot of stuff.
Hope the pics are OK, I can take more if needed.

19” was the largest size Marin did in this frame (a 1998 model) I think - and it is very big. I’m 6 ft and ride a 17.5” version of the same frame and it’s spot on. I tried the 19” version in the shop back in the day (Denton Cycles Newcastle - RIP) and it was way too big and I usually take a large. Marin’s sizing didn’t quite compute with other manufacturers!

So been looking in the archive and it seems the head tube is the easiest way to tell if it’s a large, if you wouldn’t mind could you measure the head tube please, it may still be suitable?

Thanks
Tim

Thanks integerspin as I suspected (according to the archive) that makes it a “17 which is the same as I have unfortunately.
