    Sounds good. I'm heading off to brianhead for a week of riding in an hour or two, but when I get back I'll post mine. If people post picks, we need the thread stickied.

    Oh I am envious.
    I had a Marin, sold it for a Specialized, and when the '08s come out I want another Marin. I am looking into the Mt Vision but I will see what their new line offers.

    You're not too far off....it's Otis Air Force Base. Nice trails at Otis. I do want to hit up Lynn Woods soon though. I've heard good things.

    here's one of mine

    Here's my XC hardtail, built up in Feb 2007, the frame is an '06 Pine Mountain.

    I absolutely love my bike! I also have an 05 Mt Vision Pro built up with some crap parts and it serves as my Super D/freeride bike. In addition, I have an '06 Mill Valley that I use as a cyclocross/commuter bike.

    Here's a pic of mine:


    I need to get a real picture of my bike, this was taken using my phone camera. I have since taken off my crankbrothers pump and installed a topeak mini pump via the bottle cage bolts.

    I absolutely love the bike, the suspension works incredibly well.

    how much does it weigh?

    mine is around 31 lbs. i'm trying to trim some fat off my bike and i notice u have the sl's on. i'm on 819's and thinking that's a good place to start.

    My Marin weighs 28.5lbs. without the CB pump. I could probably get it down to 27++lbs. if I took off all of the clear 3M protetive sticker I used on the frame (underside of down tube, seatstay, chainstay, toptube, headtube). The new SL's are a lot lighter than the old SL's that I am currently running, for sure that could bring your weight down pretty good.

    By the way, my bike is a completely custom built QuadXC. I bought the Mount Vision Pro frame then installed all of my parts that I had coming off my Giant Anthem, except for the headset, fork, cables and hoses.

    I've just ordered a set of I9 wheelsets for my quad XC! I don't know if that will get me lighter, but it looks sooo good!! What's your weight target?

    04 Rock Springs.

    The bike has treated me well.



    Even the Manitou Black fork has worked flawlessly.

    Yes it is. I have been riding there on and off for fifteen or so years. I got back into biking after an eight year break and headed back to my favorite place, Nam. I have been eyeballing all the drops for a year and only recently got up the courage to start hitting them. It has opened up a whole new world. The active group has built some great stuff in there. I hope to join them next year and help with some trail maintenance. Hopefully I will get some riding tips in return.

    I finally have a chance to add a pick from brianhead. I moved to a new place, started two new jobs, plus school on top of that, and finally had the internet installed in our new place.
    Here's a pick of my brother in-law on his enduro , brother, and me on our tara quad links before we rode dark hollow.

    Landing after the drop was great and he landed it perfectly... but then he panicked and grabed front brake to hard... you can see the results

    Few more; They were taken in the hills which surround Pakrac - small and very nice city here in Croatia, Europe. Trails are nice and flowy, and recently there is some shore building in progress...

    My Marin

    <img src="https://216.77.188.54/coDataImages/p/Groups/356/356100/folders/272646/2308664Marin.JPG" width="470" height="352">


    <img src="https://216.77.188.54/coDataImages/p/Groups/356/356100/folders/272646/2308665DupontDust.JPG" width="470" height="352">

    Bought the frame as a closeout and built it up to around 27lbs in it's current configuration. Running the Reba at 115mm and the AMP post make it a little more trail than XC. It's a pretty capable bike but that new 140mm Wolf Ridge is definitely calling my name.

    I need to clean it and take some better pics outside sometime soon.

    Rock Springs changes

    Well, I blew apart the Black Platinum fork so it was time to upgrade the fork. I don't know if it is the fact that it is a Pike or if its the thru axle, but the improvement in handling is unbelievable. I wouldn't have believed it if someone told me. Stiff as hell and it tracks so much better. The other big change is the handlebar. 710mm; makes the ride much more stable, especially in the turns. The other surprise.. it climbs so much better with the new bar. I shortened the stem a while back and the shorter handlebars really sucked. I don't pull directly up with the added width. Wide bars are not a fad. The alpine link should be here soon as well, which will slacken things a bit more. Thrilled with the changes and it was a deal compared to buying a new bike.

    Next will be the upgrade to wider tires. The 2.1s are going to be history soon.

    FWIW, the LBS where I got the fork loved the Marin frame. Not many Marins around here in Massachusetts.

    Just got my Indian Fire Trail in last tuesday. I've already raced it in a six hour event. It handled beautifully. Still stock in the picture but I'm going to start customizing some components now.

    My Marin Alpine Trail. Soon to have a new rear shock the shox works br that came on it is a little less than what I want. Looking at a pushed fox float its real hard to find a 7.25 eye to eye shock for this frame. I have a Marzocchi triple dropoff dual crown that I run on this frame when I don't have it set for cross country. This is the cross country set up with 6 inch rotors and Marzocchi bomber mx pro 120mm.

    I had a Marin, years back, it was a 1992 Palisade Trail, hard tail hard forks, the previous owner had trashed the forks (and himself) so it had Project 2 Forks on it (Kona?)

    6 gear cluster on the back, eliptical chainring up front, it was awsome, complete with friction thumbshifter, trashed those landing in a tree, TWO bottle cages, I was unstopable!

    Changed to grip shifters after that, not much good, then I got some index gears, can't remember what, didn't matter, got me to the girl friend on the weekend just fine and riding with my mate in the week days.

    a Mate of mine made me up a rear wheel an XT hub with a Campagnola rim, nothing special but he did the spokes (both sides) in a starflake pattern, that was awsome, he reakond that if I didnt trash that it would be good enough for him to race with.

    My brother rode it some times and thought for some reason the chain needed a link removing, I didn't know he had done this, I was putting the power on in front of some cars, chaing snapped and over the bars I went.

    It never rode straight hands free after that, pulled the right badly, is was good bike. Kept it a while, changed interests, didn't ride too much. My dad rides it now, its still going, though retired,

    I remember stripping it all down, got the frame re-painted, pulled the wheels apart, there was wool right inside (used to round up sheep with it)

    It was good bike

    that was my Marin, 1992 Palisades

    07 mountain vision

    I got 07 mountain vision about a month ago. it was a good close-out deal . as soon as I receive my bike, I was out of town for a month. finally, I tested the bike about 10 min today.
    I like it .

    I changed a fork to 100mm magura durin, carbon handle bar and pedals.
    it's about 27.5 lbs
    Here is a picture

    Thanks. I try to give equal ride time to my bikes but I'm slowly discovering that the Quake can do pretty much what the Shockwave does for DH and what the San Andreas DNA does for AM while still maintaining it's flickability and cornering prowess. My only complaint is that I keep on snagging my pedals on rockgardens cuz it's BB is significantly lower than my two Mountain Cycles.

    No photos of my quake leaning against a wall...

    but a few action shocks.

    Got it a couple of months agao and have only had a handfull of oportunities to ride it - Chicksands only, a big trip to Wales is in the pipeline and there should be a day or two in the Pyrenese in August.

    Absolutely love it, handles beautifully, doesn't seem as heavy as I had expected (although I haven't really tried riding it up hill yet!), really stable in the air and seems totally bottomless.

    We were racing pretty hard on the dual track when the pictures were taken, the other bike is also mine, a Cannondale Prophet that started out as an orange 400 but has evolved as a snapped frame an some stealth upgrades.

    My old Marin - a damn good looking bike - and it rocked. I had it when I lived in Hawaii - it's still there, but, I am not. It was my urbanbike.

    First Marin

    Hi all! Brand new to the forums, to Marin bikes, and to the world of cycling in general. Well, I guess I have done some cycling in the past... As a kid I tore up my fair share of department store bikes, as I loved to ride. As a teen, I destroyed my dad;s Diamondback and ultimately purchased my first bike of my own.. Which was a frankenstein mash-up of leftover parts that the nearest LBS owner threw together and sold me for$100. Was much better than all my other bikes (I believe it was a MOTIV or some weird name like that?). Anyhow, it was my main method of transportation to school.

    Fast forward 4ish years, I haven't ridden a bike for over 3.5yrs, and I'm 270lbs and in need of some serious exercise. So I get my stimulus check in the mail and do the smart thing.. Head to the only LBS in town (Classcycle in Novato) and buy what I could afford. Thus, I acquired my first true LBS-bought mountain bike, a 2008 Marin Bolinas Ridge:



    Entry-level it may be, but I love it, and since I bought it last Friday, I havent driven my car once. Yay for infinity miles to the gallon

    As seen in the picture, I've added a headlight and a taillight, as well as a lock. Just today, I bought a Protege 9.0 bike computer, which I think is soooo cool =D Found out it was 2.4miles to get from my friend's house to home, and I did it averaging 15ish mph. Heck if I know if that's good or not, but it's cool being able to see it!

    Anyhow, this has kind of turned in to an introduction post, so I'll cut it short.

    With that, I return to lurking these forums

    EDIT: Fixed some typos.

    Your ride is a beauty! I always wanted to try a Shiver myself! How does it ride compared to your SC fork? Do you feel the extra travel up front v.s. the rear? Anyway your ride looks really sweet!

    Thanks! It's hard to compare Shiver to RC2X... but I'm glad I've traded RC2X for it. It's waaaay more plusher, it uses more of its travel and I have far more control over the front end of my bike on fast rocky/rooty sections. Yes, it is a ancor, yes it does flex, yes it is imposibble to find parts for it... but it works like an dream and it has a 'soul'. After only 3 weeks or so, I'm in love with 3 year old Shiver DC. This trade in is the smartest thing I've done in a long time...

    dirt and beer, did you happen to weigh your mount vision? Looks sweet! The white frames and white foxes are a nice combo.

    Mercury color wolf ridge? SWEET! A friend of mine rides a rift zone that color.

    I think Marin has had a real head badhe for a while. I could be wrong though.

    Finally upgraded the fork on my 07 East Peak. Didn't realize how bad the OE zocchi was. Got one ride in before the rain. Love it! So much more plush and the pushloc is awesome. My new RS Reba Team 120 w/ 20mm Maxle lite. I had front wheel rebuilt w/ DT Swiss
    240s Oversize.

    That is a sweet setup Verns22. When I got my 05 Reba, it was one of the best moments of my life (I like bike stuff...a lot!) They rock!

    REBAs are great forks. I have been running mine with the moco turned on but set in the lightest setting. Works well for hitting jumps and drops. It won't dive yet is set up super plush. Verns22 search for the reba seetup thread it will give you some ideas. They are excetptionally fine tunable.

    Your east peak is sweet, looks more pimped out than a stock Mt Vision.

    thanks for the props fellas. I just had my wife read your posts. Ive put a ton of dough into it so I think your commments added to the validity of spending that money. Maybe not, she just rolled her eyes. Hahaha..anyways... real close to my dream bike. Will probably have the float R PUSHed next year. The Race Face Next carbon cranks would top it all off. But, those are ridiculously expensive right now. Maybe with the next stimulus check????

    Flboy, I will definitely look for the thread on the Reba setup. All I did was put in the air and havent messed with the tuning at all. Im 240lbs and run both the positive and negative air pressure at 150 psi.

    Verns22, you should run your - pressure 10% less than your + pressure, I think. I weigh about the same as you maybe 3 lbs. less. A over sized canaster would be a good upgrade when you get it pushed.

    people.. is it really that difficult to setup your shocks? Fill air enough to set sag and then go ride! There is even a guide on Marins website

    The marin website won't help with a shock that is not spec like the REBA. Also if you are familiar with a REBA they have a + and - air valves. The FOX shocks only have a single air valve that fills both + and - air bladders. Soooo there is a little bit more to set up a REBA, but you can fine tune the ride exactly how you want it.

    I am not bashing fox forks just stating the differnces that Flboy was reffering to.

    Look on the side of the reba forks- there is a guide

    Generally run pressures a little lower than stated. But setting SAG will tell you the pressures needed.

    it is that easy

    well after 6 weeks my wolf ridge bearings are clunking and have upwards play. My PIKES are also leaking from the motion control. Back under warranty it goes! I love this bike but hope that these bearing issues are a one off

    Marin 2006 Rock Springs. Man I love this bike. With the fork it weighs 32 lbs...but that is fine by me as I go 250 without gear. It is tough and can take more abuse than my old Sugar. The rear suspension is amazing. I run the rear at about 5.75" travel and it feels like a hard tail when climbing as long as I lock down the fork. The fork is a 2006 Marz AM 150mm with ETA.

    Picture taken at Graham Swamp in Flagler County, FL at about the 1/2 way point of the loop. I am running 2.4 WTB Mutanoraptor tires for extra float in the sugar sand on some sections of the trail.

    if anyone wants the frame --- lm looking to sell it so l can get another color.


    keeping the kit - selling just the frame.

    aside from a small scuff on the headtube (shipping related), it's in near mint condition.

    how would you classify the quad xc (mount vision)?

    It seems burly enough to be an XC bike, does it fall into the all mountain category?

    been wondering for the longest time.

    to me, the MV is more XCish with a fiar amount of travel (if you're talking about the stock bike).

    We pimp TBC's --- they have the Covert. pretty pimp bike, along the same line as the Marin MV. sure, you can also call it all mountain but that's just some silly name someone came up with to define hard-core XC bikes.

    Thanks for that! I wasn't sure how far I can push the MV. Hehe! I guess it can hold up.

    I've got an oldy but a goody. 2002 Rock Springs. Bought it from the MTBR classified in 2002 from some fella that rode it a few times then wanted to unload it for some reason. It was essentially new for me and about $500 off retail. Great deal considering I've been riding it consistently since then! Going on seven years now and only minimal complaints. Mostly just some movement in the rear at speed but his is problematic of most single pivots. Other than that, the TARA setup works great, even though I rarely use it and even at the highest travel setting it climbs like a goat as long as I've got the legs.

    Replaced the spring in the fork at about year two or three because it snapped in two and put on some other add-ons last year such as stem, headset, handlebars, and seat post but mostly just ran it stock. Love it and really have no reason to buy another bike yet other than the luxury of having something new and a bit more advanced. The rest of you seem to have some of those new fancy quad-link designs. Pretty. Next fix is the drivetrain. You could only imagine the shape its in after 7 years of punishment. Luckily I ride mostly desert so not as bad as riding in constantly muddy conditions. So without further ado, here's my baby:

    Be sure to get her some shin guards too. Flats like that can mince a shin real quick for a beginner, especially if she's the daring type. Looks good! Hopefully it doesn't do what my wife's bike does and collect dust....

    Very nice! How do you like Fox 36 with 160mm on WR? Can't tell if it's Float or TALAS. You like the tall front end?

    Crazy looking fork! Reminds me of an old Whyte design that had a similar thing in the front.

    Very nice stance to your cycle Kampfire. Looks ready for some climbing fun! The previous pics did not have the same impact. Enjoy!

    My new frame and swapped over parts. Mount vision 5.8 frame.

    What do you guys think of the white fork? I didn't realize the frame was cream and silver. I didn't have a choice of what color frame to get anyways.

    edit: Ok, well after I posted these I can tell it is hard to see the true cream clor of the frame.

    maybe you can see the difference in this pic. You can also see how there are no "welds" on the head tube it is the same on the seat tube also, but not on the swing arm or linkage mount. From what I understand the welds aren't sanded down like on a Cannondale, but rather they are filled and smoothed. Eitherway it does look pimp. I just wish the entire bike was done like that.

    Man, I am freaking out cause I cant go ride this afternoon. The family is doing all the Mother's Day stuff. Hopefully soon enough my wife will be a MTBer too. She wants to get a bike this summer. Stoked!
