For 2012, Marin Bikes has redesigned two of its mountain bikes, which are the Mount Vision XM6 and XM7 models. The major change in the bikes is the brand new frameset. Both of the bikes have a 6061 aluminum main frame and swing arm.
Both models are reliable mountain bikes. Ascents and descents are both comfortably tackled by the XM6, which is a certified do-it-all machine. For those who enjoy uphill pounding, the XM7 guarantees efficient pedaling position from its supreme stability.
For speed and terrain management, the 2012 Marin Mount Vision XM6 and XM7 Mountain Bikes use Quad Link 3.0 140mm suspension system. The XM6 has Fox Float RL rear shocks with lockout and rebound adjustment while the XMS has Fox Float RP2 with rebound adjustment and dual position ProPedal lever.
