    Stumpjumper ST Alloy 27.5 vs Marin Hawk Hill 2 2020

    So I'm buying my first full squish bike. As you can see I'm a fan of short travel bikes (I live in the midwest). Anyway I can't decide between these two bikes. The Marin is better spec (Debon Air, Shimano brakes, SX Eagle, etc) but the thing about the stumpjumper is it has a better frame design which causes me to give it a second look. Plus its a stumpjumper so I get the name brand thing. I don't care too much about components and mostly care about getting the best ride for the money. Also do you know if the Marin's shock has a compression/lockout because I'm having trouble finding that info.

    I grabbed my daughter a 2020 StumpJumper ST. She has had it for a month. Been all over KC and went rode pretty heavy at Bentonville. This is a really good bike. It's heavy though I can't say exactly how heavy but she hasn't complained (she's 14 and in shape). We had to special order an XS. The components are quality regardless were they sit on the hierarchy of cost and I have been both surprised and impressed all around. I believe it probably brings some of the most value you can get in a bike especially for the money.

    I would sit on one if I was you. All of my bikes of various brands are medium. I have a 30 inch inseam and am 5'7. Specialized says I am a medium but that size felt too big especially compared to my current rig.
