    there not the same, the quad trails are bigger, and have more travel.

    Looking at all these nice and clean Marins, I have to say something..... get out riding and get those guys dirty! Here is my 05 wolf ridge with a Nixon front fork that has been ridden well.

    Finally upgraded the fork on my 07 East Peak. Didn't realize how bad the OE zocchi was. Got one ride in before the rain. Love it! So much more plush and the pushloc is awesome. My new RS Reba Team 120 w/ 20mm Maxle lite. I had front wheel rebuilt w/ DT Swiss
    240s Oversize.

    That is a sweet setup Verns22. When I got my 05 Reba, it was one of the best moments of my life (I like bike stuff...a lot!) They rock!

    REBAs are great forks. I have been running mine with the moco turned on but set in the lightest setting. Works well for hitting jumps and drops. It won't dive yet is set up super plush. Verns22 search for the reba seetup thread it will give you some ideas. They are excetptionally fine tunable.

    Your east peak is sweet, looks more pimped out than a stock Mt Vision.

    thanks for the props fellas. I just had my wife read your posts. Ive put a ton of dough into it so I think your commments added to the validity of spending that money. Maybe not, she just rolled her eyes. Hahaha..anyways... real close to my dream bike. Will probably have the float R PUSHed next year. The Race Face Next carbon cranks would top it all off. But, those are ridiculously expensive right now. Maybe with the next stimulus check????

    Flboy, I will definitely look for the thread on the Reba setup. All I did was put in the air and havent messed with the tuning at all. Im 240lbs and run both the positive and negative air pressure at 150 psi.

    Verns22, you should run your - pressure 10% less than your + pressure, I think. I weigh about the same as you maybe 3 lbs. less. A over sized canaster would be a good upgrade when you get it pushed.

    people.. is it really that difficult to setup your shocks? Fill air enough to set sag and then go ride! There is even a guide on Marins website

    The marin website won't help with a shock that is not spec like the REBA. Also if you are familiar with a REBA they have a + and - air valves. The FOX shocks only have a single air valve that fills both + and - air bladders. Soooo there is a little bit more to set up a REBA, but you can fine tune the ride exactly how you want it.

    I am not bashing fox forks just stating the differnces that Flboy was reffering to.

    Look on the side of the reba forks- there is a guide

    Generally run pressures a little lower than stated. But setting SAG will tell you the pressures needed.

    it is that easy

    well after 6 weeks my wolf ridge bearings are clunking and have upwards play. My PIKES are also leaking from the motion control. Back under warranty it goes! I love this bike but hope that these bearing issues are a one off

    Marin 2006 Rock Springs. Man I love this bike. With the fork it weighs 32 lbs...but that is fine by me as I go 250 without gear. It is tough and can take more abuse than my old Sugar. The rear suspension is amazing. I run the rear at about 5.75" travel and it feels like a hard tail when climbing as long as I lock down the fork. The fork is a 2006 Marz AM 150mm with ETA.

    Picture taken at Graham Swamp in Flagler County, FL at about the 1/2 way point of the loop. I am running 2.4 WTB Mutanoraptor tires for extra float in the sugar sand on some sections of the trail.

    if anyone wants the frame --- lm looking to sell it so l can get another color.


    keeping the kit - selling just the frame.

    aside from a small scuff on the headtube (shipping related), it's in near mint condition.

    how would you classify the quad xc (mount vision)?

    It seems burly enough to be an XC bike, does it fall into the all mountain category?

    been wondering for the longest time.

    to me, the MV is more XCish with a fiar amount of travel (if you're talking about the stock bike).

    We pimp TBC's --- they have the Covert. pretty pimp bike, along the same line as the Marin MV. sure, you can also call it all mountain but that's just some silly name someone came up with to define hard-core XC bikes.

    Thanks for that! I wasn't sure how far I can push the MV. Hehe! I guess it can hold up.

    I've got an oldy but a goody. 2002 Rock Springs. Bought it from the MTBR classified in 2002 from some fella that rode it a few times then wanted to unload it for some reason. It was essentially new for me and about $500 off retail. Great deal considering I've been riding it consistently since then! Going on seven years now and only minimal complaints. Mostly just some movement in the rear at speed but his is problematic of most single pivots. Other than that, the TARA setup works great, even though I rarely use it and even at the highest travel setting it climbs like a goat as long as I've got the legs.

    Replaced the spring in the fork at about year two or three because it snapped in two and put on some other add-ons last year such as stem, headset, handlebars, and seat post but mostly just ran it stock. Love it and really have no reason to buy another bike yet other than the luxury of having something new and a bit more advanced. The rest of you seem to have some of those new fancy quad-link designs. Pretty. Next fix is the drivetrain. You could only imagine the shape its in after 7 years of punishment. Luckily I ride mostly desert so not as bad as riding in constantly muddy conditions. So without further ado, here's my baby:

    Be sure to get her some shin guards too. Flats like that can mince a shin real quick for a beginner, especially if she's the daring type. Looks good! Hopefully it doesn't do what my wife's bike does and collect dust....

    Very nice! How do you like Fox 36 with 160mm on WR? Can't tell if it's Float or TALAS. You like the tall front end?

    Its a VAN.
    The ride seems okay i was worried it was gonna corner like a chopper but it seems pretty nimble.

    I've got a pike to try on it and see how that handles.

    * Cranks: Shimano XT 36-24
    * Front Derailleur: Shimano XT
    * Rear Derailleur: Shimano XT Shadow
    * Pedals: Shimano DX
    * Stem: FSA FR230 70mm
    * Handlebar: Husselfelt DH 50mm Rise
    * Seatpost: FSA SL-280 20mm setback
    * Saddle: WTB Pure V
    * Bottom Bracket: Shimano XT
    * Cassette: Shimano XT 11-32
    * Headset: Superstar Components GTO
    * Grips: Sunline Logo Thick
    * Front Tire: Maxxis Advantage 2.4

    Crazy looking fork! Reminds me of an old Whyte design that had a similar thing in the front.

    My new frame and swapped over parts. Mount vision 5.8 frame.

    What do you guys think of the white fork? I didn't realize the frame was cream and silver. I didn't have a choice of what color frame to get anyways.

    edit: Ok, well after I posted these I can tell it is hard to see the true cream clor of the frame.

    maybe you can see the difference in this pic. You can also see how there are no "welds" on the head tube it is the same on the seat tube also, but not on the swing arm or linkage mount. From what I understand the welds aren't sanded down like on a Cannondale, but rather they are filled and smoothed. Eitherway it does look pimp. I just wish the entire bike was done like that.

    Man, I am freaking out cause I cant go ride this afternoon. The family is doing all the Mother's Day stuff. Hopefully soon enough my wife will be a MTBer too. She wants to get a bike this summer. Stoked!
