    2002 Marin Attack Trail Pro With TARA 4,5,6" suspension - anybody own one?

    There are new old stock 2002 Marin Attack Trail Pro framesets listed for sale on ebay. (no affiliation to me). These frames have the TARA adjustable rear suspension 4,5,6" with a Fox float RL rear shock.
    FYI, the seller only has 17.5 framesets. I was thinking about building one up as an freeride/all mountain type\bike with a 120mm fork.
    Has anyone owned on? How good is the tara rear suspension.
    I like idea of being able to adjust the rear suspension travel.
    Any thoughts or feedback would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    They were good frames at the time, but pretty much any modern frame will have better geo, better suspension design, and will be more compatible with parts from today.

    Still good frames now, I ride a 2002 single pivot attack trail had one back in the day then found a new frame in a shop 4 year ago so built up a new one, my favourite frame of all time, its geometry is fine, its single pivot which IMO is still as good as any other suspension out there, running it with 150mm revelations with adjust so I can dial the whole bike between 120-150mm although generally its left in 150mm all the time anyway.

    The only bike thats ran it close was my orange 5 circa 2008 or my attack trail 2010 that I reluctantly sold last year.

    I am bidding on a 2010 attack trail at the moment on ebay as well as I want one of each again.
