    Marin b17 suitable for xc riding?

    Hi, I am in the market for a small frame and I was looking at the Marin B17 frame. Can I set this thing up for decent XC riding or should I hold out? I don't do any jumping, just trails and some mild downhill. Thanks!

    A link is nice, yes we all know how to use the internet, since you're the one asking the Q? Do some work and link us, i'm lazy.

    If I were you I would hold out for a frame designed with xc in mind. That bike looks like it would be sweet for it's intended purpose, just not for xc. The weight alone would kill you.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.
