    Always enjoy your high quality vids. How's it ride compared to your previous Marin fleet?

    Well I have always had a Mt Vision and Attack Trail ( wolf Ridge) and loved them but here on the shore the steep stunts get pitted with the bigger bikes so I have always put a 150 32 fox on my mt. Vision and a 36 talus on my attack trail.

    This year I wanted one bike to cover both and so I built up this mt vision xm9 with lightweight shimano and a 36 talus. It rides so nice and the extra weight in the fork is not noticeable however is climbs wicked like the mt visions always have but now is a descending animal. Happy riding and thanks for the kind comments! dave

    The 09 wolf ridge is pretty well same geometry as the XM series. Love riding my 09 WR. It's a brilliant all rounder. We have some similar terrain to the North shore.

    But wondering if it's worth upgrading from my 09 Wolf ridge?
    Is there much weight difference and is the rear end more linear and ramp up slower[ more tree root friendly]
    Looks alone the XM series are a winner. One of the nicest looking bikes out there period. Love the pant job of my WR. Pity about the head tube junction aesthetics.
