Exactly and the hubs will probably last a while but like many cheap ones they have about 18 degrees between engagement so it depends if that bothers you or not

Just bought one for the missus as well. On a huge clearance at Chain Reaction Cycles at the moment.

Be aware that the ones on Chainreaction are not covered under Marin's warranty. Chainreaction is not an authorized Marin dealer and the bikes were obtained in a sketchy way....

They are also only covered if you are the original owner. The frame is solid so I don’t think there will be many warranty issues but good to keep in mind.

That sorta explains why they're on clearance so quickly. Cheers for the info.

Mine will be the 2018 model for just over a £grand brand new from lbs. So will be original owner

Finally took delivery of the RZ2 so a few days setting her up ready for the weekend to hit the trails. Will update after hitting the trails.

Are the rims on the RZ2 taped ready for tubless setup?? I know the tyres are tubless ready and the rims are able to run tubless but just trying to figure out what I need to go tubeless

I think they come taped. The stock tires are good except that they are hard to seat tubeless. Make sure to use an air compressor.

Great advice thanks. So I just need new valves and tyre sealant? And obviously an air compressor.

yes that should be it. I weigh about 174 lbs and run 20 in the back and 18 in front. My tires are slightly wider at 2.35 and 2.4 so depending on how much you weigh you might need a bit more.

Such great looking bikes. Do you think I could get the beads to pop on with a track pump?

not sure. I bought my bike slightly used and the original owner put a tube in the rear tire because he said the bead popped off shortly after he did the tubeless conversion. with my flow rims and maxxis tires there was no issue at all.
