1999 Marin Nail Trail

I needed to get off my fully rigid £180 Free Spirit Kielder and onto something with a modicum of “MTB” about it. Fortunately, a deal was struck with a mate of Dave’s who hadn’t really done much with his bike and I ended up with this near unused Nail Trail at a bargain price.

My word, that’s a long one!

Now I love my Inbred. In a manly sort of way you understand.

2003 On-one Inbred

I bought the bike to get back to the hard tail experience and haven’t really looked back, but it is very different to the East Peak.

1998 Marin Muirwoods

I feel very nostalgic about this bike as it was the first ‘proper’ MTB I owned.

Thomas bought himself a new bike after his Orange UFO committed hari kari in 2003 by chewing up its rear wheel and derailleur leaving him to look for a ‘cheap’ frame to get mobile again.

1998 Marin East Peak

This was my second Marin after a brief spell with a Muirwoods (same as Matt’s). I wanted to go full suss and loved the way the bike rode – still do.

2003 Marin Rift Zone

In January 2003 I decided it was time to find out what the fuss was all about with full suspension bikes and turned naturally enough to Marin.
