Hi guys I am new to RetroBIKE. Chanced upon it when I was searching for some info on Marin to help in the refurbishment of my 1990 Pine Mountain as a SS. This is the second time in the 22 years I have taken it back to the metal. Originally purchase from Williamsons Edinburgh for £569. I remember having to take out a bank loan to buy it and the interest rates were 14%! I have a 1991 Palisades crying out for attention in the garage. I will try to upload some photos if i can work out how.

Nice looking bike, the black and white look great in that combination. I love the geometry and comfort of the early Marin frames.

Cheers I will check them out. I need to go to 1" to get the best out of the SS. A bit sluggish at the moment with the 1.5"s.
