    Marin quake 7.2

    As a satisfied owner of a slightly upgraded quake 7.2 which I use (built up some muscles lol) 4 all purposes FR/DH/Bike parks even AM and XC and even in the city just to fool around or to go to visit a friend ...just wondered are there any more owners of that bike and what s your opinion bout that bike...voila..that s all ...would appreciate any replies since where I live (Croatia-Europe) there are very few Marin bikes (mostly Trek , Specialized and Haro) and yes to buy one in my country will cost you at least 2 or 3 average wages...respect

    ..you won t be dissapointed...to say the least... btw ...is it a quke 7.2? or 7.3?...
    Anyways you ll be delighted...if you are not a pro rider, no need to upgrade in the beginning except maybe the brakes and rims-I changed the stock Hayes Nine for Avid code 5.....
    and yes...you ll be able to climb too your ride provided you re not 79 years old
    as said in the firs repy it s BADASS bike
    enjoy when you grab it...jus make sure to set the sag properly it s very important on the quake...just play a bit with all the possible combinations of a rear shock....
    p.s.give us some feed back of the setup of your quake
    respect...

    It's a leftover '09 7.8, from Pedal Shop. I think it comes with Code 5 brakes, not sure. I'm just getting into the freeride/downhill scene, and the last mtb I had was a fisher mullet which I had to sell to get my supermoto, so there might be a good deal of trial and error before I figure out how to set up the suspension. What's the sag supposed to be, a third of the total travel?

    I'll be sure to post a couple pics when I get it, I just need another 600 bucks first Can't wait!
