      I am looking at buying a used 2009 Gary Fisher Marlin. The bike is in mint condition, only ridden a couple of times and only once on single track. Asking price is $400. My concerns are two:

      1. I am 6’4" and currently ride a 22.5" Trek 3700 while the Marlin is 21".

      2. The RockShox Dart 2 gets terrible reviews.

      I ride almost exclusively cross country and am fairly new to the sport but I want to start riding Copper Harbor Upper Michigan and do the Wisconsin Offroad Racing Series (WORS) this summer. Wondering if this is a good buy or if anyone has any suggestions for other bikes I could pick up used for under $700.

      Here are the specs on the Marlin:

      Frame Construction
      TIG-welded
      Frame Tubing Material
