Just dug out my old 1993 Marin brochure that I have owned for 20 years. I remember spending many hours looking at this back then with the delemer of only having Bear Valley money, but falling for the beautiful looking Pine Mountain with its shiny XT bits, purple parts and 24lb weight. In the end this piece of Marin marketing material made me get my credit card out and spend the extra for the Pine. As the bike was so good to ride, this was a decession that I never ever regretted.
