This is my baby Marin, with a 14 1/2 frame- as the seller measured it from the wrong points and sold it as a 15 1/2- hence ordinary stays rather than "Afterburners" and the incredibly tall seat pillar. It is a bit scruffy but is the bike I always reach for first as the small size makes her a very good point and squirt kind of bike. Useful when you are as clumsy as I am.

More details to follow

Nah, The originals came with it but the skinwall bits had started to delaminate, so really they are just a pile of threads fastened to the carcass. I don't think they'd even have inflated without the inner tubes pinching out.

Have you ever tried to find any replacement 200GS bits?
