This marking is really small, and was almost gone during facing. Frame has waited for me about three years in the several bike shops, so marking is normalJerk_Chicken said:I noted some marking at the top of the headtube. What's up with that? How good does the clearcoat look?
Agree here with JC, one of my all time best bikes was my Marin Indian Fire Trail, stella frame and bike fit for me, loved it.....Jerk_Chicken said:You know, I've always been a fan of Marin hardtails, since I found out about them about eight years ago. I noted how most models (now down to a few) used really upscale Columbus tubing, some frames made in Italy. Why they were never a big splash here, I can't understand. Their FS bikes could be polarizing, but their hardtails are stunning.

This thread has really made me wonder whay DT doesn't have a Hardtail in the lineup - something like the SC Chameleon, or the Cove Handjob. Something that can be geared or SS. I know DT's had other threads about this sort of thing, and outsourcing the builds and whatnot. This isn't a thread for that, but if Turner had a Steel or Alu hardtail, that could be SS or geared (maybe in 26" and 29"), and had geometry that could handle a 100-140mm fork.. And the frame sold in the $450-700 range - I think people would buy.006_007 said:Really nice looking rig. hmmm, I think I need a hardtail......
