I picked up this lovely, if a little rusty Pine Mountain a good few months ago (for peanuts) and kept it in the garage. But as my other projects near completion, I need a new one.
So I plan to build this one up using, as best I can, period parts, but not catalogue correct (plus the slick tyres are likely to stay):

Hope you all like it, it’s certainly taking shape.
Not weighed it since the cranks but was at 8kg, aiming for 10.5 which is around or just under catalogue weight (which would have come with STI and LX / XT mix).
Actually the 94 catalogue had no listed weights, 93 was 10.9kg and 95 10.5kg with quite a change of components such as Whyte and Titec rather than Marin Lite

- Cabled the rear mech
- swapped the cantilevers over for “Alivio” 93 as the Tektro ones didn’t want to work, think the springs are gone.
- Fitted the chain.
- swapped the bar ends for some silver Onza L bends. The Marin purples need reanodising for sure.
- removed the bottle cage as it was also scruffy
- added grips
- weighed it.... 11.0kg :( and no front mech yet

Wonder what I can do to get 500g off?
I have some XTR cranks... and fancied an XTR rear which saves 50g.

Will add a photo later...

- Cables all done, brakes working reasonably.
- No front mech still
- Rear not indexed
- pedals are pretty terrible, and need clips
Went out for a very short test-ride, lovely :D

Final form:
Derailleurs all indexing and shifting well, I gave the shifters a good lube and of course fresh cabling.
I’d forgotten how easy thumb shifters were to operate, I quite like them! I have an M952 XTR Rear mech to fit but seems the wrong era, and the XT mech works really well, so...

Lovely bike, fast light and nimble, rides lovely too

Should be around 10.5-11kg
