    I have the 07 bobcat trail, basically the same frame as the northside. I like the geometry, and its pretty lite weight. I am a beginner and this is my first real mountain bike. But for the price it was a good starter bike. I paid 400 used last month.

    Heres a link to Marins 07 catalog.

    I have a Northsidetrail 05, the parts are crap, over the years I upgraded a lot of components. But the frame is awesome, I ride trails, and I ride pretty hard, bike takes a lot of abuse. It's not the lightest frame, my bike weights 31.4 lb, it climbs ok, and goes down even better. AXC it is.
    live fun, play hard
