This isn’t a picture of ours. It is a darker blue and doesn’t have white walls (but it could if you wanted them!). Ours is from a Holmedale family that was clearing out their family home. Cool looking bike.
Built from 1995 to 2010, there are 18 versions of the Marlin. This is an early Marlin, either the first year of production (1995, blue) or forth year (1998, ballistic blue) which is my vote, so rigid frame. The 1999 model saw the introduction of front suspension.
