    Looking into a GF marlin ss any advice ?

    Hey all

    I have been debating getting either a Gf marlin ss or a redline monocog ss. both 2011 and both 29ers.

    I have been able to find good reviews on the redline but not much info on the marlin ss. Anyone have one of these or have any advice about the marlin ?

    I will be putting one of these on lay away on weds . $100 more for the marlin but i get a suspension fork and disc brakes which do not come on the redline

    any help would be great.

    Got one and I really like it. The dropout system is pretty slick and easy to use. Color scheme isn't flashy but looks good. Suprising quick for a 29er and it also has really nice components for the money. Fork is a beast, but I believe you can get Tora TK forks in G2 from Trek or get a Reba if your looking for air. I would take the Fisher over the monocog in a second. You can always make it geared with a dropout replacement, and the cable stops are already on the frame.
