    2011 marin quad DH?

    Anyone riding one? The frame looks promising. Even though 10 inches of travel seems like overkill. Just wondering how it rides and how it compares to other bikes.

    I heard greg minnaar and steve peat both think 10 inches is overkill.

    except they run their bikes in 10 inch mode instead of 8.5.

    Yeah. I like the design. The only thing that kind of comes off weird, and it might be marketing, but it looks like the weight is high on the bike. I actualy have no idea if it matters. Keep posting the progress! Im probaby going to do the bit by bit on a frame here soon and try to get it done by spring. This frame is high on the list!!!

    yeah P-shop.... whats the status on that bad boy?? I would like to at least sit on it once before you send it away. Please keep me informed.

    Ohh and HTFR, I got a chance to see that frame that day. It really does not feel to be too heavy. When I reached for it I expected it to be a beast, but I was surprised on how much it *felt* like it weighed. There was no scale on the trail that day....

    ha ha --- no scale that day...

    that can change.

    l have that old skool grain scale -- even though it's at least 80 years old, it's pretty accurate (for stuff over 10lbs). next time l'm out there, l'll hang it somewhere (cover it with some sorta bag so it doesn't rust).

    a grain scale??? you crack me up sometimes.. anything over 10lbs?? That pretty much eliminated 95% of all DH frames I would want! I will dig though my old tackle box and see if I have something made in the last decade... haha.. I will let you know.

    oops --- edit --- anything UNDER 10lbs it doesn't read well.

    in it's day, it was measuring bags at around 100lbs l think

    anything over lbs, it's pretty good --- just as good as the digital scale that's supposed to be good to a margin of 2oz
