2008 GT Marathon Pro Bike/Test Reviews

Anyone run across any good reviews of the 2008 GT Marathon Pro? I'm looking at picking one of these up, but would like input from either test reviews or from anyone on this forum who owns one.

Thanks!

I got a chance to ride one at a demo show near my uncle's house in Maryland. I gotta say it's a great ride. Really smooth, stiff, responsive and transfers great on different terrain. The drive train is awesome too. However, you cannot really use it for anything too heavy. If you are sticking to cross country and trail stuff you'll be good. If you want to go bigger, I say go with the GT Force.

MBA reviewed the team a while back.

If you hold any stock in what they say, that is.
