I remember getting mine.....in 1992 strangely!

I was gutted when the chainstay cracked, however Marin were kind enough to swap-out the frame for a 96 model, and put all the kit back on, which I still have now.

Seriously, that looks like you've just bought it new. Awesome.


Thanks.. 8) Yes I like a good catalogue spec..

That’s a beaut! I found one in similar condition a year or two ago - amazing that they’re still out there.

For those who like an old Marin, and are on Facebook, there’s a retro group just for them - Marin Bikes: The Early Years.
