    1990 Marin Palisades zolatone refurb

    Yes, the one in the barn is 1991 - as well as the different Zolatone shades, the fatter, constant diameter Afterburner seat stays came out in 1991. The OP one has tapered stays. Also the decals were white in 1990, so are not faded from neon.

    1989 Marin Eldridge Grade

    Nice bike, though I am pretty sure it is a 1991. It has the constant diameter "Afterburner" seat stays which came out in 1991 and it is the "Matt Black with Neon Green Lug" colour that was offered alongside a "Neon Yellow with Neon Pink Splatter" in the US in 1991. Models from 1990 and before...

    Early 80’s Araya Muddy Fox Adventurer

    There's quite a bit on info on here and other places on the early MF's, S&G bikes. Do a search for S&G, Muddy Fox, Araya. viewtopic.php?f=1&t=290545 viewtopic.php?f=6&t=398554

    Early 80’s Araya Muddy Fox Adventurer

    Looks good. This was for sale recently here in New Zealand, went for 20 quid, but they wouldn't ship to me so I missed out. This is probably more of the original spec, silver rims etc.

    What's this?

    NZ$200 is about GBP100, so possibly worth it. I think the Sandy decal is a personal addition - the sellers ID is snady1, which could be Sandy.... It's unusual to get absolutely nothing from google, even if it a local brand etc and quite unusual to have a looptail design.

    What's this?

    Any ideas what this is? Google doesn't seem to help or maybe my Google-fu is off. "Pre" Precision Pinnacle 86x? Thanks, John ... ed5b03d9dd

    1993 (?) Marin Bear Valley SE.

    Yes, it's a 1993. Looks good, I like those cool, white/grey Exage ES cranks, only available in 1993. Enjoy it.

    Shimano STX SE FC-MC31 chain rings

    Apologies, that was something I did not realise and I quoted the link with the 95mm dimension on it :facepalm: There was previous thread on here about the same issue viewtopic.php?f=1&t=51037&start=0 It seems that in 1994 only, Alivio (MC11), STX (MC30) & STX-SE (MC31-CH) used 95mm outer BCD...

    Shimano STX SE FC-MC31 chain rings

    Shimano 5 arm compact triple BCDs are 94mm outer/middle and 58mm granny. You have to be careful though, the design was not always the same - e.g. Not all 1994 STX SE rings will fit on 1994 LX cranks. For STX MC31, the outer ring fixed to the middle ring and the granny ring connected it all to...

    Marin Bear Valley SE 1994 *New pics: page 2*

    Re: Marin Bear Valley SE 1994 I have one of those, yours looks like it is in much better nick. Great bikes, although I tend to ride mine on the road and gravel tracks rather than full on off-road.
