Whether you'll be racing XC or just want to ride one of the nicest hardtail mountain bikes made today, the CXR hardtail will suit your needs. Marin's 2010 Team CXR XTR is a zero-compromise, no-holds-barred, full-tilt race machine that can handle its own on epic trail rides as well. The frame is full carbon monocoque with an oversized downtube and internal cable routing. This gives you the stiffest platform from which to launch your attack for trail supremacy. Suspension is handled by one of the lightest forks out there, the 100mm SID World Cup with carbon power bulges and Black Box Motion Control. The lightweight parts continue with quick Mavic rims, silky DT Swiss 240S hubs and versatile Maxxis tires. And it keeps getting better with an Easton carbon bar, Thomson Elite stem and post as well as a WTB saddle. With such a dialed spec, would you expect anything less than a full XTR group including cranks and brakes? We didn't think so. Awesome race bike for the price!!! Parts alone would equal the cost of the whole bike!
