    Arch pain when riding

    Hey all just got a 2013 Marlin 29er and notice when riding it I get pain in the arch area of my feet, any idea what can be causing this?
    Also never had an issue with this on my rockhopper or revel.

    Ok, maybe a little too obvious but have you considered putting an arch supports in your shoes?

    If I understand correctly you haven't had this problem before and now you are wondering what's going on. Maybe nothing bad is going on -- you are just sitting differently on your new bike and it triggered a different pain. If you had switched from platform to clipless then there might be a foot positioning issue. But I assume you would have mentioned this change.

    Wear well-fitting shoes, preferably made for mountain biking and get arch supports if you have arch pain.

    Yeah it's strange same shoes as i was using on my other bikes didn't know if it was because it was a 29er or not. You might be right about the bike has me in a different position I am going to try sliding my seat back some as I feel a bit crowded with where it is.
