'97 Marin Pine Mountain.

Came to me in a bit of a mess. Kept the original parts and added quick coat of paint.

Use it for most things now. Really comfortable.

Me too :D
It started out as a cheap(ish) parts build. But it rides like a dream, and has gradually turned into a bit of an upgrade/weight weenie project.
The latest upgrade was a set of titanium wheel skewers:

Which shaved off 68g.

My fave pic of it - taken during a retro group ride this summer by a guy riding one-handed, with a DSLR that looked as expensive as his Klein :shock:

Thanks :D
I could do without the huge logos. But other than that I'm well pleased with these tyres. They weigh about the same as Kojaks, and roll almost as well on dry asphalt. But they have a lot more grip on looser surfaces, as well as on asphalt now that it has gotten wet and greasy.
