Marin Alpine Trail 2000 First MTN Bike (Help)
Hi could anyone help with the above bike, I've just bought it and don't know much about this model, should I change any parts as it's a stock standed bike in mint condition. I should also mention I have a bad lower back due to a caving accident and haven't been on a bike for a while so any help would be great.
Get on teh bike and get a feel for it. If something doesnt work, then you should look into replacing it. If it is in mint, and doesnt need servicing, you should be alright for a bit.
Now go pedal!
oh, Welcome to the forum./
I have a 2001 alpine trail with adjustable travel 4-5-6". found head tube angle to be too slack, switched to a 90 mm stem which helped speed up steering. In the process of building her up now. Everything will be upgraded on mine. Some did have trouble with seatposts unbonding. I cracked my frame near bb & it was replaced via warranty- think it was a bad weld.
