Visiting UK in Dec i fancied a retro MTB to scoot around on, an excuse for another bike if ever there was one :lol: . With Marin on my mind i found this Pine Mountain on ebay. Retailing in '93 for GBP715 i secured it for GBP79. My holiday bike project was underway! Many thanks to Wookiee and Unclejack for the frame sizing and UK courier advice - very helpful! After it arrived on my parent's doorstep last week my father did all the disassembly and cleaning (lucky me :wink: ) then i arrived two days ago to buy some bits and build it up. Here we go then...

Looking very nice... especially the toptube decals!!! None of mine look as good as those :?

What are your plans for the old saddle? I could use it if it's surplus to requirements.

You got yourself a good one there bud, I have the next size up and i'm surprised how crazy light they are.
