2012 Gary Fisher Marlin SS
Just got back from NEMBAfest, had a great time, and got to ride this bike for about 10 miles since I've bought it. (spent most my on demo bikes, bought this just to have a bike just in case for the festival). There are a few upgrades from the pic and specs in the link as follows:
1. low quality suspension fork has been replaced with Niner rigid fork (made with reynolds 853 steel), much lighter
2. stock tires replaced with Specialized low profile knob tires, make it a little quicker on hard pack
3. cable disc brakes tossed and Shimano Deore hydraulic discs installed, much better stopping power
4. stock grips replaced with Oury Kawasaki green ODI lock on grips (nice cushion to offset the rigid front end
5. Sram pc-1 chain upgrade
BIKE HAS NO PEDALS! (cheap pedals at most decent bike shops start around 20 bucks)
MSRP is 649.99, and I have yet to see this bike available at any trek dealers around yet.
fork normally goes for $179.99, plus the hydraulic brakes, grips, and chain.
Bike is like brandy new. Size is a 17.5"
Thanks for looking!
