Very nice! Not too happy with that saddle for that bike though. It looks a tad heavy IMO.
Why not ?
I am 58 and can do a solo 3 hour ride with a heart rate average of 162. Probably means I still have a max HR somewhere around 195. Has nothing to do with your fitness level, just genetics. Resting...
Riding vintage studless to work today, late shift so I could take a longer route by the fjord. It had been below freezing during the night but was dry and safe all the way. Such a relief to not hear...
Could be a Marin Team frame from ca 1993.
Taking my time reading the newspaper with a double espresso made with a semivintage Brasilia Cappuccino and a huge San Marco Grinder. Wifes brother sends some good beans from the other side of The...
There are some letters on the chainstay, what is written there ? Probably a highend frame , they would not put a number plate hanger on a bike not meant for racing.
Due to snow and darkness I take refuge in spinning rooms occasionally. I reallly dislike the aerobic lady instructors who know nothing about outdoor cycling. At my gym there are now four very good...
This is a cheap but decent JIS headset I just put on an old Marin Pine Mountain. Comes with two races, one for JIS and one for Iso.

You need studs for this:
You don't need studs for this:...

105 sucks ;), go with the Merida, very nice bike.
It seems to have been red in 1999, according to bikepedia. Decent bike and if you can get him to come down to 150 you have got yourself an OK bike for a good price. Most importantly: Is it your size ?
If that slammed seatpost is stuck you are in for some serious fun.:rolleyes:
What little snow we had is disappearing and studded tires are a must. Nice ride today on what should have been busy XC tracks and some nice riding on glaring ice on the lakes....
Why not ban anybody moving around outside unless inside a car ? So much safer for all of us.
A bit more subdued but still quite funky :
Very nice !
Just finished this 1980 Norwegian bike. Put on modern wheels and 28 mm Kenda tires and will probably use it as a commuter. Weighs in at a little under 22 pounds....
I suspect this to be a Muirwoods from ca 1990. Fun project :)
I bought "his and hers" 87 Marin Pine Mountains at a fleamarket last spring. Hers was OK but his needs quite a lot of work. Ordered a cheap JIS headset with sealed bearings , 24 $ with free shipping....
"Looks like Minnesota. "
Probably why so many Norwegians settled there:) (Love your Merckx!)
I would guess I use 30-40 % longer on my rides compared to summer as long as the snow is fairly packed.
On my way home from work today.
