The Marin

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.
