    building on a Marlin

    Now that I upgraded the fork to a Fox Evolution CDT on my 2011 Marlin it rode real nice on some new tires too Ground CTL front, and Captain in the back.
    Any advice what to upgrade next thats worth it and not too pricey hence the fork set me back 800 bux more than the whole bike :-)
    What do different skewers do? Or should I upgrade the X4 to a X7 perhaps? Any advice thanks

    The next best modification you can do is upgrade the wheels.

    Hey Frugaltravelg, did you stick with 100mm travel? If not, did you have to change anything else?

    Thanks
