Re: Marin Titanium 1990

Hello
What a beautiful build!
I have a Marin Team Titanium from the same year in 19", which I equipped more closely to the original setup. That one is also in excellent condition, but it sadly lacks the original Litespeed titanium stem with the Marin-typical cable roller, which is so very rare and which I see on the earlier pictures of your bike. Would you trade that one?. How can I get in touch with you?
Regards Stefan

Hello Nic
So sad, but thanks for feedback! Could you give me a hint whom to adress, maybe I could negotiate another trade;-)
Where did you order your Marin 90/91 Decals from?
I do have contact with gil, but in his decal set the letter R in Marin isn't the accurate font version and the letters are also slightly more bold than with the original.
Kind regards
Stefan

I got mine from Gil - but only the top tube ones - others were OEM

Mr Ox on here has my old stem

some final shots after the Toplines removed and the Cooks added - the black balance the bike better than the silver in my mind!
