Hi guys- I am looking at updating my Cannondale Flash 3 - 26 wheels to a carbon 29er bike and have narrowed the choice to the above bikes. The Marin is £1,700 and the Flash is £2,000. Both have Avid Elx brakes, and Di=ore shifters- the Flash has a mix of sram and shimano components and the Marin has shimano components, the Flash has a lefty fork and the Marin has rock shox reba forks. The Cannondale is slightly lighter (just under a kg)- guess due to the single fork. I have test ridden both and they both feel great. Unfortunately they are in different shops in different towns- so cant ride one after the other.I ride weekly on a night cross country ride with a mountain bike group for about 3 hours- all year round. Any thoughts would be greatly received- I kinda need to make a decision asap. The bikes are 2013 models and reduced in price. Thanks Nuala
