For £50, if you've got the room, why not?

I've got a 1991 grey zolatone Muirwoods with fluro green front end. It gets more compliments (for its colour scheme) than anything I've got. One woman asked to take a photo the other day!

I keep it at work for riding around London as I don't mind leaving it locked up outside when I'm out and about. It is cromo but most if not all tubes are straight gauge and the components look smart but weigh a ton. Not for more serious riding.

I also have a silver 1999 Muirwoods frame built up with XT which is brilliant. By then frame was 4130 cromo and double butted so pretty cool actually.

I’ve always liked the zolatone Marins, I think they have real presence. I hear the response re the Muirwoods, and it’s not going to be for me.

Im trying to cull all the deadwood and, though cheap this would just add to it.

If anyone is interested in it I’ll talk to the guy in the shop and see if I can get some pics/contact info.

Rather than start a new, very similar thread, I thought I'd tack this question on at the end of this one: Has anyone had any experience of the '96 Palisades Trail? It's the first aluminium Palisades that Marin produced, with STX and GripShift adorning it. Hardly any reviews from owners online and weight estimates varying from 35lbs to 27lbs with a Quadra fork on (which would probably make the fully rigid original about 11.5kg if true).

Any info about weight, ride quality, etc. much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
