I know I already have another thread about this, but that was more for questions. Created this one for anyone interested in it, thinking about getting into it, or wants to ride.
So Sunday I got my new bike, 2010 Gary Fisher Marlin, leftover for a good price. Last year of the Gary Fishers, since Trek bought him out. Glad I got it when I did since they changed tons of things, and the bikes don't seem to be the same anymore.
Rode it 2 times so far, Yesterday told Wifey I was just going around the neighborhood for a little, then I decided to go to the front of the neighborhood, then I was like well how is this on the main roads. Then I ended up at Lums Pond, to go hit the trails. Handles and brakes pretty good. Fork seems a little spongy, but I will just have to adjust it a little. Rode today too, for a little, just around the hood though this time. Really liking this bike, only thing I hate is the seat, damn that thing hurts the kaboose! But like i heard, the reason it hurts so much is because it is not meant o be sat on...lol
Have about 5 miles on it already, and can't wait to put more on it!
So if anyone has a bike, and would like to hit some trails sometime with me, hit a brotha up! Have bike, will travel!
If you have questions ask away, since I did tons of research, and I kind of know some stuff now. Well at least I know what is going to give you some bang for your buck!
Sorry was more of a review than anything.
