The Whitehorse area is where I had the most fun riding ever. Great trails, awesome people and riding community, and incredible scenery! I spent 6 summers there and miss this place every day.

Marin bikes are definitely an awesome value and quality brand. I am really picky when it comes to small details and I inspect everything more than the average customer. The Rift Zone 1 that I had was flawless. Even if it was the lowest end model, the frame had spot-on tolerances, was straight as an arrow, had a super nice two-color paint, was well greased and assembled...I could go on.

Honestly, it would have been impressive at any price, but the fact that the complete bike was selling for the price of an alloy frame without shock made it even better. I had a blast on every ride with that bike, and since I wanted a bike with more travel, it's now in the hands of a good friend who just started to ride again after a few years' hiatus. Needless to say, he's just as impressed as I was and he loves it.

Thanks to Marin for putting so much value, quality and care in your bikes, it is really appreciated!

Hi there! They are available from DVO but I asked my suspension service centre to shorten it a bit (mine is 12mm "thick") otherwise the stock ones would have been either too short or too long. Depending on your specific shock/spring combination it can vary. Cheers!
