Comments about Marin Marin Hawk Hill Trail Mountain Bike '09:
Got this bike a few weeks ago and so far it has been great. Unfortunately, I haven't gotten the chance to ride it on some really decent trails. But what I've ridden so far it has performed well.
Shifting is rather smooth and braking is very responsive. The only thing that bothers me about it is that the front brake has a loud squeal right before the bike stops. A tech at my local sun&ski tried to fix it the day I got the bike but it has started up again.
All in all its a great bike that I'm looking foward to enjoying for yrs to come.
