    Yes it was. The auctions that started at .99 had some great deals.

    Yes they did!!! Problem is it's skewed reality for me, looking to upgrade my wife's bike but having a hard time finding a new slx/xt FS bike in the $1200 range for her. I'm loving the suspension design on the Marin, What's the travel on the MV? love the colors btw has that Jedi paint scheme thing working for it!!

    Haha yeah, good luck finding that deal again. My wife rocks a hardtail that is really nice and that works for all of the riding that we do together.

    The Mount Vision uses Quad Link 3.0 and has 140mm travel front and rear and its awesome!
    I like the flat black color scheme as well. Putting on my carbon bars, dropper post, and Narrow wide ring this weekend.

    Congrats on the new ride!

    I scored a 2012 XM8 last year from the same seller and I was stupid enough to let it go last month. I'm missing it! This bike is way underrated IMHO.

    Agreed. I love the Quad link 3.0 suspension so far.

    I third that sentiment.

    I was so worried about pedal bob on the rift zone as it is my first FS, but I have nothing but high praise for the suspension design. On the trail setting, It doesnt feel any different from my hard tail until I get into the nasty stuff roots, rocks etc. I'm loving the QL 3.0.

    Moefo you had a chance to break it in yet?

    Yeah, I took it for a ride through some snow and ice trails. It was a bit sketchy, but the bike was a blast to ride.

    Thanks, mine will arrive tomorrow. Also a 16". Too bad small frames are never used for websites of catalogs.

    I am 5'9" and it is just a tad bit on the small side. I put wider bars and set the saddle back and the reach feels really nice now. I think a 17.5 would have been perfect, but oh well.

    Good to know. I'm the same length. This bike however will mostly be used by my son. For him this bike maybe a bit too big (he has a 15" bike now) and for me on the small side. I also own a 2011 MV in 17.5" which suits me perfect. Geometry isn't a lot different looking into effective toptube (less than 1"). I guess a 16" with a bigger stem (80mm compared to 60mm) will help me fit on this bike.

    I had a 2007 Mount Vision with a 17" frame and I think this one fits me better and has a little extra stand over room which is nice. Both of them are on the small side, but to me that is comfortable.

    I too had a Quad 3 MV, but a medium (17.5"). It fitted me very well with a 710mm handlebar + 50mm 10 deg rise stem (Renthal Duo) + 20mm setback seat post (KS i900). I'm 5'8" (173cm) but long torso, short leg (29.5" cycling inseam).

    Nice! Mine came with an X-Fusion hilo dropper post. I have gotten rid of the SLX crank and got a SRAM S1400 crank with a direct mount Wolftooth no drop ring. Also 1 X 10 thus.

    Yeah, I have the XFusion HILO as well, but I just havent put it on yet. How do you like the Remote for it? It looks awkward.

    I like it! Even better than my Kronolog remote. It is very smooth to use and needs low 'force' to use.

    Just weighed mine, in the new set up (1*10) and without pedals it is 29.25 pounds. I'm going to change the bar also into an Easton EC70 riser at 170gr.

    The wheelset is the heavy point on this bike. My next upgrade will be new wheels setup tubeless.

    Got to go for a couple hour ride this weekend. Still pretty muddy out there. Loved every second of it.
