    I just saw a 2013 diamondback recoil in the trails today. I talked with the owner and he let me ride his bike. He was very happy with his bike. He just got it and it was his first time riding it. He...

    Yeah it is very popular during the sale. They are out of marlins and mine is the only one in the store. One of the sales guys told me that in trek's website there is a disclaimer that some components...

    Yeah got it! thank you very much!

    It is brand new from an authorized trek dealer. I was asking the mechanic and the other guys there and they were also dumbfounded with the SIS and Altus thing, so...

    Ok thanks. Don't you know of any external markings that will differentiate it from the shimano SIS found in walmart bikes?

    where exactly would I find this? I was looking for any signs that they were altus and could not find it. Thanks!
  7. New 2013 Trek Marlin with Sis crank and front derailleur?!

    I was about to purchase a new 2013 Trek Marlin and just noticed that the crank and front derailleur were Shimano SIS instead of Shimano Altus.

    Anyone with the same experience? should I be worried...

    is it good as a base bike for the frame? So even if with the better fork and shock it still isn't good for serious trails?

    thanks for the reply!
  9. I guess nobody has it?

    I guess nobody has it?
  10. Anyone has the 2013 Diamondback recoil 29er?

    I cant seem to find enough users to comment about this bike. Amazon has a handful of them but they are not really from mountain bikers.

    As for the bouncing, when I was still doing those spinning classes in the gym, bouncing means there is not enough tension in your bike, which translates into your gears are too low for you as it is...

    the only time i see myself upgrading is only in two situations:

    1. When the computer is too slow (after upgrades are done.)

    2. when it is unrepairable when it breaks down.

    Yes very true, but those who bought in BD will not know how to replace a simple BB or do upgrade for themselves. put in the cost of upgrades plus labor on your local LBS.
