    '17 Marin Mount Vision 6

    Looking to buy a new bike to replace my trusty but old(12yr) Giant.

    I'm wanting somewhere around 140mm travel, 27.5" wheels, & aggressive trail geometry.
    The component list for the '17 Vision 6 looks great for the price, comes with 1x11 gearing, and a dropper post(cheap, but its there). The geometry looks to be on par with most aggressive trail bikes. There is a new one listed for $1800, thatís left over from last year. Iím really liking the bike.

    I'm just looking for some first-hand experience with the Mount Vision 6, and any issues that plague the bike.

    Thanks

    An excellent choice for an aggressive trail bike. I have the 2016 model and the 2017 geo makes it all the more aggressive. I did up the travel on my fork to 150mm though cuz I felt a little imbalanced due to the progressive rear linkage, thatís personal preference however. I like plow machines. It is however a very playful bike, not the best climber, not the quickest up the hill, but definitely loads of fun.

    2017 models are all alloy rear triangles too so you wonít have to worry much about the flex zone cracking issues like on the carbon rear versions.
