Yes!  Bought one last winter on sale... smoking deal for a very, very capable bike.  Have been slowly upgrading some parts as I go.  So far I've Added a Wolftooth 49t cog (basically now have eagle range), Wolftooth dropper remote (for the best value and so far fault-less Trans X dropper), upgraded rotors and pads (needed upgrade) for what are actually great brakes, and grips.  I also upgraded my stem and bar more for vanity sake just to get rid of the perfectly ride-able Norco generic parts and to make the bike a bit more "mine". I also installed the 160mm air shaft into the Yari.  I'm not got a 140mm/160mm budget beating uber-capable rock solid bike that I've started Enduro racing. There are ways to play at this sport for a lot less money than you would think if you do enough research and look hard enough... funnily enough, these Marin bikes were tops on my list until I found my Norco for sale and couldn't pass it up.
