Strengths:    Excellent balance of climbing and descending ability.

Weaknesses:    Unconventional look may not appeal to everyone. If one is use to a free ride bike, the steering may feel a bit too quick.

Bottom Line:   
I can't say enough about my Marin Mt. Vision Pro. I got a 2008 in December of 2007. I have ridden it three days a week through two winters. I've put so much time riding in crappy conditions that I've change the chain 7 times. I am hard on bikes. I descend fast and hard. The rims are dented from blowing through rock gardens at 20mph but not one thing on the bike as has ever failed me. The 2010 Mt. Vision frame has a lower center of gravity, a longer top tube and a slightly slackened head tube. I road the 2010 on 26 miles of single track. It was a dream. Climbs like a mountain goat, descends like a bobsled.

Strengths:    Very light and seems durable.

Weaknesses:    Doesn't seem to have quite the forward momentum on climbs that the cannondale does. no room for a water bottle. can fit it on top bar but very cramped and have hit knees on it.

Bottom Line:   
Love the bike. Only reason i would change is if I end up liking 29ers better. Doesn't have disk brakes but could be upgraded with them. However; I ride silently through the forest while my disc breaked freinds squeel the entire trail.

Date Reviewed: April 12, 2007

Strengths:    Weight, Durability, Suspension, Price, Handling, Looks, Components, XTR/X.O. do I need to say more

Weaknesses:    Slightly steep head angle for steep descents, Rear Fox Shock had slight problems (warrantied with no issues), Tires that came on bike were slightly "chunky"

Bottom Line:   
This bike is just awesome, with the modifications made the bike weighs in at an unbelievable 24.5 lbs. This bike has taken everything the northeast has thrown at it and just lauphed. I use the bike for cross country and aggressive cross country races as well as endurance events. I finished 24 hours of allamuchy nearly nonstop with one bike maintenance stop that included lubing the chain and well uh, oh that's right lubing the chain (that was 100+ straight miles and anyone that knows allamuchy can attest the conditions there). I recommend this bike to anyone looking for the perfect cross country trailbike/racer/endurance machine. It has the weight of a cross country racer, the suspension of a trailbike (feels a lot more than 4 inches), and the durability to last an endurance race.

I come from a long time riding dirtbikes/motorcycles and road bikes but I have no idea where to start with the suspension settings on this Marin. My plan was to put everything back to factory setting ... Read More »

Please help to ID this Mount Vision Pro frame

I'm looking for a FRS XC frame and came across this one for sale.
