Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Can anyone tell me about my new marlin belvedere alps?

Found this at a local thrift store & bought it - for $69. I first bought it to resell because it looked brand new, but once I rode it...not sure I want to sell it now!
This is the easiest pedaling, smoothest shifting, nimblest turner(?) - and just a blast to ride!
But can't find much about it. Can anyone tell me what I have? Year?
I appreciate any help.

Looks like late '00s or early '10s. Fine bike for the price- around the urban and college towns I live near, it would be hard to find such a bike for under about $200. Looks like it's in fine condition, but that chain and rear cable look a little dry. It's probably just been sitting for quite some time. Might want to pedal it past a bike shop and ask about chain lube.

Will do - is it a road bike, or hybrid?
