I am really enjoying the Marin I acquired recently too, unfortunately it is making me want to ride my hardtails less!

Thanks chaps, aye the marins are super comfy aren't they, has its pros and cons like every bike, I find the slight bobbing a bit of a pain up steep hills, the shock on mine apparently has that anti bobbing magic contained inside but it still does a bit lol
