Lots of great things coming out of this review and it dovetails into the precept review as well inasmuch as the upgrading route always appears when a lower pricepoint bike is looked at. Even Dave's column touches on this. There is a decreasing return as more upgrades are added; forks and wheels could bring the total to a point where another complete bike might be a better idea at but it sounds like the Marin is an excellent frame/bike to begin with so upgrades would accentuate not deviate. Interesting to see that the forks and shocks were not binned straight away and they worked on the same trails I ride; much of this sounds like a core element of the design. Would the same fork/shocks hold up on other bikes?
