Marin Bikes Teases New Bike for Sea Otter 2013, Also looks Carbon-y

After posting this teaser on their Facebook, it looks like Norco won’t be the only company that will be releasing a new carbon model at Sea Otter. The new Marin is either carbon, or it has a finish that is made to look like carbon – we’re guessing the former. After revealing the new 2013 bikes in August last year, it was reported that the Rift Zone XC 29er and Mount Vision XM would both have carbon versions, though it seems the bikes haven’t materialized yet. With that in mind, we wouldn’t be surprised if we’re looking at the new Mount Vision XM carbon. Who knows, maybe both bikes will be there on display. We’ll bring you the details next week!

Update: Thanks to a little birdy, we’ve heard that there is truth to the carbon Rift Zone and XM. Also, in the back of our minds we were thinking it wouldn’t be surprising to see a 650b model as well, and it looks like that may come true as well. If that wasn’t enough, there is also just a rumor that the Cornina CX bike is going carbon and may be offered as a frame set. Stay tuned!

Or, it could be a new version of the former Attack Trail…

Carbon Rift Zone? That makes sense, I just got a 2013 Rift Zone.

If ‘attack’ is a hint (what i’m almost convinced of…) it should be a new Attack Trail. And since ‘enduro’ is very popular it would be good for Marin to have a 160mm bike in their programm.
