I have a marin rift zone... I've put many miles of riding on it, and it's just as great as ever. It's never let me down. I did upgrade a few things here and there, but the bike itself has been fantastic for me.

Used to have a '99 Marin Rift Zone, it was my 1st full suspension bike. This was the early single pivot model, loved that bike. The bearings on that bike never gave up, the pivot bearings was so well sealed from countless numbers of mud, rain and bottom bracket deep crossing I never had to do anything to it.

replaced almost everything on that frame except for the pivot bearings and it was still rolling.

Would have gotten another Marin, but the new frame geometry and sizes doesn't fit me.
