I couldn’t resist the retro inspired Pine Mountain One so bought a new one last summer.

Rode it once up the road, weighs a ton so looked to loose some weight! Ditch the SRAM 10spd and trick it up a bit. So far it’s got:

Thomson seatpost
Chris King headset
DMR magnesium V12s
11spd XT M8000 mech, shifter and cassette.
KMC chain
Blackspire chainring with aerozine orange bolts
Renthal chainstay guard

I was going to fit a new flite titanium but the original orange paneled saddle just looks right.

Looks quite retro until you look a bit closer and then it’s bang up to date. I’m inteigued as to what the “bridge” is for on the forks though??

It’s 27.5” wheels. It was strange to ride at first, the newest bike I own prior to this is a 2001 RC300. The handlebars are over a foot wider for a start!

The bridge is I think to provide a mudguard mount. I didn’t like it at first but I don’t notice it now to be honest.

Good stuff. 8)

I have been tempted by these in the past but ended up getting a P7 instead. Still look at them but have no more space.
