File under better late than never, our man behind the scenes at Marin just sent over this photo of the new 2011 Marin Mount Vision XM, with this note:

“spotted in Downieville recently, the Marin van was in town with Ride Guide TV crew filming for an upcoming episode with this 2011 Mount Vision, now dubbed the XM. The staff gave a few details on the bike. They said they the bike has evolved to be a better all around trail bike, with travel going up to 140mm and with a tapered 1 1/8″-1.5″ headtube up front. major change was the new Quad linkage system, which now uses a Y link up front, which slims the linkage system way down- approx 67% narrower according to the Marin guys. They also stated that even with the jump in travel the frameset is lighter than the 2010 version!”

Perhaps we’ll see these guys at Interbike and see what else they’ve been up to.


What do you think?
