This blog will soon be full of 09 bikes but I had to post this one. It is Marin’s new cross country 100mm travel bike. It still uses John Whyte’s Quad Link suspension system but in a very new way, in fact it looks like a first in terms of shock position and top tube use to me. Lets just hope the top tube doesn’t brake when your stood up to hammer up a hill. Other news includes a carbon swingarm for the Mount Vision Pro (and maybe others) which looks like a direct copy of the Whyte E120 to me.
