I'm looking to purchase a new bike. I've been using my 25 year old Ridgeback hybrid but it's now feeling very tired and small, even though it's an 21 inch frame. The handlebars have always felt extremely narrow.
I'm 6' 4" and 17 stone. My commutes are for leisure where I cycle 10-20 (max)...
Finally sourced a new bike yesterday so my Marin is up for sale. Bought in 2016 new from Broadrib and used once for the London to Brighton and the garaged. Bought out during lockdown and serviced it’s in very good Nick with a couple of scuffs. I’ve replaced the pedals with the originals.
Marin nail trail 7 suit 5'4 - 5'8
Great standover height for aggressive trail riding.
Standard bike in excellent condition.
1x11 with 3 front sprocket options, 28- 32 and a 34 with 11-42 rear cassette.
Yari 120mm fork
Slx gearing with Marin chainset
Several sets of quality tyres...
Modern retro looking Marin, 19 inch aluminium alloy frame, 7 Sram x3 gears, mudguards. Comes with a rack (not pictured). In excellent condition ( bits of rust on some bolts, the odd minor mark and scratches on seat). All works as it should. Scunthorpe, £95.
Can anyone tell me is the frame (not forks) a genuine Marin,
It has some Shimano XT and other various parts,
Wheels are Shimano LX/Mavic 231 rims,
The serial number is A50JE0088,
Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you.
Picked this up on eBay yesterday for £9.99 from a guy just across town. Amazingly light bike for the age with plenty of potential for upgrade - although at the moment she is in a bit of a sorry state after being in a garage for 10 years or so...
Anyway, she gets a full stripdown and clean today...
As per heading.
Its in near mint condition.
Its got a new XT double crankset so its 36-26 11-42 gearing.
These were £1600 rrp
£600 plus a spare wheelset and some good quality tyres,
Pick up Peterborough or you can organise a courier..
Pm me if interested
Back in 2002, in a fit of offroading intending enthusiasm, the GLW and I bought two Marin Alpine Trail FRS mountain bikes. For reasons I won't bore you good folks with, it never really happened.
So, we have the two bikes taking up space, so we thought it would be sensible to sell them on to...
As in my other thread, my daughter has outgrown her 20" wheel bikes, so they are for sale.

I have been given a great offer on a Marin Nicasio 2019. I know it’s a Claris groupset but is it the new shifters with the gear cable unde the bar tape with the brake cable, or is it the ‘ugly’ one with the cable coming out of the side of the shifter?
Recent rear cassette
Schwalbe tour plus tyres with loads of life
Near Gatwick (RH19) or courier @ buyers expense (naturally I'll box etc!)
It's gotta go as N+1 means I'm outta space!
Just picked up a nice Marin Pine Mountain locally , full Shimano Deore group set .
Newer wheels , decent tyres fair enough condition considering it's age . And a great retro colour scheme .
Tange tubing so nice and light just needs a clean and some use .
Oh dear, I've done it again. I've bought another MTB!!:bicycle:
Can't seem to stop since I have retired. Still I suppose I need something to do. :laugh:
This one is a Marin Bear Valley in need of a lot of TLC.
It is basically all there but the bike has not been used for a while.
Further to my other thread
Decided on the Marin and test rode. Felt good but shop only had medium so no large to try.
I'm 5' 10.5-11" tall with 32" inside leg and positive ape index.
According to Marin's sizing chart, I should be either...
