They ended up showing me a very fast looking Marin Fairfax that was 550. I really liked it.

I decided to not go the BD route and just buy that Marin. I went today put a hundred down on it and got sized. I don't know which one it is, it looks like an sc5 based on marin's website.

Anybody have one of these? How did it hold up etc?
Not helpful... but I know my way around Fairfax over in Marin county What I do know is Marin tends to make quality bikes that can take a lot of abuse and serve their owners well.
