1999 Marin San Marino

Set up with a wide-range "Shimergo" configuration, with a retro all-silver component build. New powdercoat since 2012. I've tried to capture the unique frame features: ovalized top tube, down tube and stays, plus the bowed seatstays. Italian made by Billato for Marin. A distinctive look, with a slightly stiffer ride than a lot of the steel bikes I've ridden, likely owing to the shaped tubes and straight-blade fork.

Not exactly sure if this is actually a 1999 or 2000. If anyone happens to have some insight, I'd be glad to know!
