I had a large stolen and was able to get another a month later
Put a pnw 200 dropper on it
Then immediately broke my collarbone
Depending on skill I would give yourself some time to get used to the bike before jumping it
Can’t wait to get back on it

Where did you buy the bike ?
I'm thinking it may be a couple of months before we see these in stock

Hi fellas!!

Does any of you have or know someone running a Marin Alpine Trail E2 full 29' (no mullet)? Any feedback? Rear tyre clearance left?

Cheers!

Looking for another battery for mine wondering if the 504 is interchangeable with the 630 battery?

Hi.

I'm considering one of these but a little stuck on sizing, with the lack of stock trying one in the shop is difficult.

I'm 6'2", 95kg with 35" legs. Any thoughts?

^^^^ XL for sure, Depending on what your riding now, even that may feel a little small.

Yeah I’m 6’1 wish I had the xl but large is ok

Just want to say that this bike is awesome! Will try a 29 rear tyre at somepoint.

I'm running full 29 with a 2.4dhr, no issues on clearance (large frame) and looking the way it feels.

Awesome. Assume the wheel circumference difference is so minor there is no notable impact on motor/speed/performance?

It "feels" like a 29er now, and I like it. I do have a 170 fork on it too. Good article here.

Bike arrived last week, just need to find the time to sort the invisframe but can't wait to test it out.

What tyres are people running? Was always a Maxxis fan but bought a HT with Scwalbe magic mary front and hand damf rear and love it. Thinking maybe try the big betty on the back.

The bike came with Vee tyres and rear has to go, looks very fast rolling but can't imagine it'll be much use in the mud. Not sure on a 2.8 on the back. Would a smaller tyre, 2.6 or 2.4 change the geo enough to notice?
