Shane from Bikes at the Basin sourced this Marin for the cause. Seems that it has hardly been ridden although early 90's vintage still has the plastic over the badges. I just screwed on some pedals I had lying around, pumped the road style tires up to 60 psi and went for a spin. WOW after riding my fully suspended very plush mountian bike this thing felt like a rocket. All gears worked perfectly with a very loud "Click" for each index change fo the seven speed cassette. The Cantilever brakes where a bit dodgy but I'll sort them out.
