    2015 Mt Vision CXM8 - Any reason I shouldn't buy this bike???

    Iím in the market for a new ride.I want a XC / trail bike.I currently have a 2013 Mt Vision.A local shop has the 2015 CXM8 for 2700.Thatís a crazy good price for thisbuild.I want something that climbs welland descends good.Something I can takeon long mile adventures.Can anyonecomment on how this bike handles?Iímalso looking at an Intense Spider 275C, the build isnít as good, but the bikehas great reviews.I hope to ride both,but probably wonít get to do more than peddle around the parking lot.Looking for real world reviews (and donít bebiased just because you own one ).

    I have the 2015 cmx9 and love it. It climbs much better than expected and is great on decents. I find myself riding it over my Niner , even on the xc trails.

    I have the 2014 XM-8. I threw a leg over the bike for a test ride, loved it, took it home and never looked back. Great bike. At $ 2,700 take the offer and go have some fun... Hitt

    P.S. - I am biased, I think Marin is ok with that reality

    As long as it is new with warranty, I would say go for it. I broke 2 attack trail carbon frames this year.
