Hey guys I just picked up a Marin San Quentin 2 recently and would love to see what other owners are doing with their San Quentin’s and what upgrades they are making with their builds!

What size tires are people running on theirs? I want to see if anyone has successfully fit a 2.8” tire. Manufacturer says it’ll fit a 2.6” but I wanted to see if anyone has pushed that limit. Thanks!

Not done much to mine yet either, Rockshox Reverb dropper post, DMR V8 pedals and DMR Deathgrips. Really need to get a new wheelset though, they are not holding up to much, having to true them up after most trail rides.

I was going to upgrade forks but tbh theres nothing wrong with the revelation, performing well once set up right. brakes and wheels could do with an upgrade

im planning also to change my brakes and tires. the stock ones just doesnt do it.

looking for maybe a sram level for brakes of the guide2 (g2). i just plan to upgrade the tires to tubeless - still thnking on which model to get from maxxis.

Sup fellas, I was interested in how you like your San Quentin's thus far. I'm strongly considering buying one and I'd like some opinions. Thanks!

So far I’ve upgraded the grips to some Ergon grips, put on a fox transfer dropper, some knockoff raceface chester pedals, and upgraded to some sram guide r brakes and I’m running tubeless.

I would like to have done more but I am severely limited on cash. I have the San Quentin 2 so it needs a fork upgrade for sure and I would like to get some bigger tires and cushcore eventually.

Personally I love my bike and the way it rides so I would recommend it to anyone. If it rides better than where it is at now with tires and fork it will be insanely good!

I've been on one for about a year and a half. Before that I was on an NS Eccentric Chromo. The SQ is a much better bike than the NS in stiffness and flickability. I am running a 150mm Z1 and love it. It still pedals fantastic and is super happy at speed and in the air. Get one if you can.

Done some more upgrades on mine with a rockshox Yari 140mm fork DT swiss wheelset. Bike is running so good, didnt have a massive problem with the original recons but after riding the yari the bike feels so solid over the rough stuff. Wheels have gave me a bit more confidence on drops as the marin rear wheel was constantly losing spoke tension. I'll be looking to upgrade the brakes to shimano XT but for now loving the bike, does everything.

I'll be looking to add an enduro full suss to the bikes soon but I'll be keeping the Quentin for riding pretty much everything apart from knarly DH
