29ers are for girls too
Clare borrowed our Marin Rift Zone 29er medium this weekend and didn't want to give it back! This is what she said of the bike:
"At long last there is a 29er small enough for me to try – a Marin Rift Zone for the weekend!
From the start I absolutely loved it. The effortless climbing and, for a change, riding at the front of our group. With the occasional growl of “I hate you Harrison” as I passed a male friend on the climbs, it was all good.
The Marin is so comfortable, especially over roots – you hardly notice them! Very fast downhill which, I must admit, nearly caught me out a couple of times.
Overall I cannot fault the bike. My performance seemed so enhanced on it that it seemed as if I have been in training for a few months, which did make me feel a bit of a cheat!
Better start saving….."
We have a 17, the one Clare used and a 19. The bike retails for £2,199. A full review will follow.
