Here's my mid 1990s Marin Muirwoods on skinny tyres for commuting / urban riding. It's super fast and a lot of fun to ride. (It weighs 10.4 kilos if you're interested in weights).

I love this build, it just looks like a fun ride, and it's always nice to see these frames being given not just a new lease of life, but a new purpose, this build showcases the versatility of these rigid steel beauties. 80s/90s mtb really is Peak bike.
