I've been drooling over this bike for quite awhile now. My SO, who owns a bike shop, has seen it in person at a bike expo in Las Vegas last fall. I have been in the market for a new bike for awhile now.. a full suspension bike ~ I have a hardtail and a road bike, but finding myself in the need for a FS for certain rides.
And so yesterday we ordered a pearl pink Marin Rift Zone. Check it out.
I guess there were not a ton of these made, which appeals to me. I do not want to be riding a bike that every other person has. I love that whole unique factor. LOL I don't see myself doing a ton of immediate upgrading, which is sweet. Dave tells me that the picture does not do it justice, that it's a pretty awesome bike.
And so it'll be here Monday. And we'll build it up and see if it still totally appeals to me. I hope so.. I hope it rides as sweet as it looks. If not, it will be sold at the shop and I'll continue looking. Though I'm reasonably sure I'm going to like it.. I've ridden other Marins and found them to be very nice bikes indeed.
A ship is safe in harbor, but that's not what ships are for.
