We could honestly be at it for months writing about all we saw at Interbike this year. I am wrapping up my coverage with a few exceptional products that I spotted as I wandered the showroom floor:
Marin had a few bikes on display and I have to say: wow. Very simple, clean-looking bikes with some outstanding trimmings on them. The Attack Trail Carbon XT Pro was a shining example of what is in store for this year. Made from CXR 60T carbon, this 150mm-travel bike uses 27.5 e13 wheels and a mix of SRAM XO and e13 drivetrain components. Top-notch XO trail brakes and Easton Haven controls round out the build. A Rock Shox Pike up front is a killer front fork to have matched up with a Fox Float X CTD in back.
You’re looking at about $8,099 for a copy of your own. If that is a bit much for you, the Rocky Ridge 7.6 might be a bike that you may love instead. This is a hardtail that looks like a FS bike. The Ridge is based on a 6061 130mm front fork travel platform.
The Rocky ridge also runs 27.5 wheels (Formula hubs on Alex MD rims). But at a price point of $2,599 this ride is using Sram X7 throughout, with Elixir 7 Trail brakes. A Rock Shox Revelation RL and a Kind Shock Supernatural seatpost round things out.
