Marin's Attack Trail reviewed

Marin haven't done particularly well here in the US, but are a force to be reckoned with in the UK. Catering to UK-specific concerns (mud room, lifetime pivot warranties) and having fantastic distribution over there have certainly helped. While XC bikes, particularly in the mountain West, are headed toward 5in travel front & rear, the 140mm Marin Attack Trail is decidedly burlier. through-axles front & rear, a Rock Shox Pike fork and FSA Gap crankset certainly say 'trailbike' or 'I'm really hard on bikes' to us. 5/5 stars, though, despite concerns about the 08 XT discs (which have been great so far in our testing)...
