i grew up ridding BMX and still ride till this Day.. however i thought it was about time to change up to something a little different , im 27 and dont fit on my 20 inch as well as i used to.. so after comming on here and reding for a few days about what people say about different bikes.. i decided on a new 04 GF marlin for $350 that i found at a local shop . havent really had a chance to take it out yet because its raining tonight here in WI .. but from the little bit of a chance i have had to ride i really like it.. Whole nother world from the 20 inch Fit Series One that im used to ridding so far so good though.. looking forward to getting into some trails.. i figure itl be a good bike for starting out.. and when the time comes to buy a new one ill upgrade and pass it down to a friend who doesent have a bike , who shows intrest. but anways great forum , glad i found this before i went shopping .. helped me pick out the different bikes that i tryed out before finalizing on the Marlin. Another one i was looking at was a brandnew 96 shwin moab .. for 400 and a 98 moab for 600, i tryed some treks and giants as well .. all nice bikes .. but the marlin seems to have a better fit for me. ok ill shut up tho.. just thought i would share that with you guys.
