Weaknesses:    wish components were better, but they are ok and I can always upgrade those.

Bottom Line:   
Fits me perfectly. I am 5'2" and feel like I have great control over this bike. Doesn't feel "big" for me like many other bikes do. Did not think I would like like a hard-tail, but like it better than my dual-suspension.

Strengths:    strong, looks amazing, fantastic geometry

Weaknesses:    no atachmnts for drings holder/tyre pump anywer on the silly i know!

Bottom Line:   
this bike is truly fantastic! at £500 from a very good bike shop (chevin cycles) in my opinion you get exactly what you pay for and more! as a christmas present for my fiance who wanted to get into riding with me it has done nothing but exell the marin brand for me. i have rode my marin for over a year and thought it only the decent thing to stick with them and buy my mrs an almost identical bike. its strong, it fills my fiance with confidence and all the parts are just perfect for your average XC cros contry femail rider. she loves it, i love it and we look spot on when out together

BUY THIS BIKE i asure you a happy ride over and over and over again!

thank you marin!
