Yeah I've seen a few on ebay around that age so just waiting for one to come up really...Is the Wolfridge/Attack trail much heavier than the Rift Zone/Mount Vision? Oh and the Orange 5 how does that compare? My mate has an Orange Patriot and to be honest its a bit of a tank!...



This is what my friend got.

It's quite heavy but could lose weight easily. He was worried it was more bike then he needed but loves it now. He had a 2005 Alpine Trail before and the WR blows that away.

I'm VERY biased towards the 5 and am on my second but they really are superb do it all bikes. Mine comes in at around 28lb with out too much effort to save weight so is fine for all the riding I do. If you do look for a 5 I'd go no earlier then 2009 if I were you. They changed the geometry to the current spec and started using Reynolds tubes in 2009. :wink:

Im 6ft 1 and its fine for me, that bike would suit anyone from 6ft to 6ft 4,
Problem with me is im bang in the middle of a med and lrg, it all boils down to TT length for me, iv put a shorter stem on it which suits me better.

Your original post says it is a 50 inch frame.

Eye i did it is cm. as far as im aware thats the lrg frame, the Marin wolfridge 2004 i had a while ago seemed to be on the small size compared to other bikes, do not know if they are the same today.
