I looking at buying a used steel 29er hardtail and a guy offered me a Marin that is supposedly made from Reynolds 853. It has the decal on the seat tube but that doesn't mean much since they can be purchased on eBay.
I checked catalogs and I don't see that they ever used 853.
The frame details look similar to the current steel 29er, the Pine Mountain, which uses 4130 chromo.
I can try to post a picture later but can't do it from my phone.
