Hi all,

I'm completely new to the forum so please excuse any mistakes.

I recently built up a 2006 Marin Mount Vision from scratch using a mixture of new and used parts.

Let me know what you think and also what you think it might be worth, i'm interested to know.


2006 Marin Mount Vision frame (previously silver but I had it blasted, powder coated and then added new decals)
Fox Float rear shock (replaced decals as previous was worn)
Marzocchi Marathon LR (replaced decals as the stock ones are a bit lame, ha)
FSA headset
Avid Juicy 5 front and rear
Mavic XC717 Rims
Goldtec XC front and rear hubs
9 speed Shimano Saint derailleur + Saint shifter
Bontranger Earl Crankset

Here's the finished article:

    Looks decent enough. As for value, probably not as much as you think/hope but we don't do valuations here.
    I love horses, best of all the animals. I love horses, they're my friends.
