2000 Marin Argenta

Hello. I have a 2000 Marin Argenta and I need a part. I ran over some wire that I did not see and it wrapped around my chain and ripped my rear dérailleur off and broke my rear dérailleur hanger in half.

I have already talked with Marin and they are looking for a new rear dérailleur hanger for me, but I want to see if I could fine one also.

Does anyone know of or have a used 2000 Marin Argenta rear dérailleur hanger for sale?

I love this bike and want to salvage it.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

can I ask...

Hi- I also have a Marin Argenta and am looking for info about the wheelset and fork and the cool stem in particular, and found your thread. Mine is also from 2000, the Red/Yellow/Blue paint scheme with Daytona 9-speed.

Anyway, did Marin indicate that this was difficult for them to find parts for this bike in their warehouse/storage, and do you think they have any more derailleur hangers and other parts from this era? What was the best way to contact them - did you use the "Ask a Tech Form" on their website?

Besides wanting to replace parts, I just like to have spare parts just in case something like this might happen to me! Thanks.

First I am almost positive that I called the number on the back of the owners manual. Thad and Alex from Marin found the part in there shop. They did not indicate that they had more.

Just so happened that I broke the right shifter. I also have Campagnolo Daytona 9 speed. Do you still have the bike? And if so do you still ride it? If not I am interested in buying it.

Also, do you have a source for vintage Campy parts?

TIA,
Travis

Marin Argenta parts

Yes I do ride this bike still. It also does a lot of wall-hanging while I ride others but is really a joy to ride so I keep it. I have considered upgrading the campy 9speed many times but mine work fine; so no, I don't have parts.

You could check the usual suspects (ebay, craigslist, etc) and you might get lucky finding a replacement for that shifter. Or you should note that, perhaps depending on how broken the shifter is, that these shifters are completely rebuildable with the correct parts (unlike shimano which cannot be rebuilt). Probably any level (Record, etc) 9-speed era campy parts would work. So a local bike shop might have some springs, levers, etc. kicking around, and may have someone on staff who knows how to rebuild them. I would call around to see.

In fact, I'm always on the lookout for this model in any size so I can buy one, too, to get the spare parts. Probably the same thing you are thinking.

I'm curious since you just saw this a year after I last posted - would you like to start a new post with pictures of this bike? There is a limited amount of info about it online. Maybe there are others out there interested in this bike in this model year.

Cheers,
D
