Bottom Line:   
This is my first mountain bike and I love it! I have had no problems riding trails at Patapsco State Park and Rockburn in Maryland. I highly recommend this bike. I also highly recommend Revolution Cycles in Georgetown, DC and Rockville, MD.

Submitted by Katy a Weekend Warrior from Burlington, KY

Date Reviewed: December 5, 2007

Strengths:    Geometry, Deore shifting

Weaknesses:    Could use more aggressive tires, Handle bar grips are rough on the hands, Saddle

Bottom Line:   
I'm new to the mountain biking world and was told this would be a great beginner bike. I absolutely LOVE my bike. It handles like a dream. I think it's the geometry that works so well for me. The bike is very sturdy and feel it can handle anything I throw at it. As for the weaknesses, I think the tires could be more aggressive. I ride exclusively off road and on a few occasions felt the tires could be better. However, not bad enough for me to replace until they wear out. I think the saddle is painful but my husband as the non gs bike and says it's fine. I'll eventually swap it out. Bottom line...I'm sold on the geometry and look forward to my next ride!

GF Marlin GS or Tassajara Disc GS

This will be my first mountain bike and am leaning towards the cheaper Marlin GS unless somebody can justify spending the extra $$$ on the Tassajara Disc GS. I won't be doing technical stuff or jumps or drops and I won't be riding in very muddy conditions (too much of a girl to get dirty )Read More »
