As predicted.

More bike news. The Marin is no more, well to be more accurate, it's been stripped down and is lying in state on our dining room table awaiting a new home via fleabay.

I just couldn't get used to it. As reviewers elsewhere say, it might have 6 inches travel but it is no freeride bike, and yet, it is too cumbersome to make a really good XC bike.

So in it's place I'm buying the freeride classic, a Santa Cruz Bullit. 7 inches of rear travel and a sturdy frame too. I've got a pair of Pace RC40 Fighters for up front, and I'll just swop over the other bike bits that were on the Marin for now.

Here's the frame as advertised, picking it up on Thursday.
