Marin Pine Mountain recall…what. the. flip
Well, my new forks (rebas) turned up today along with a nice new shiny hope front wheel….which was standard 100mm and not boost. Despite it saying boost on the invoice it measures at bang on 100mm. CRC have been especially useless in returning my calls or sorting anything out so no riding AGAIN this weekend.
Sick of it now, I’m off to buy something else tomorrow…Posted 11 months agorumbledethumpsMember
Thats shite Flange, hope you find something suitable. I’ve again posted a message on Marins Social Media asking about the fork recall and when can I expect it to be done. The post was deleted within 30 minutes. It wasn’t sarcastic, just a genuine question from a customer who has spent money on one of their bikes. Jesus Marin, just update us. Mine is still gathering dust with my LBS.
You’ve more chance of contacting the dead!
I hope everyone affected get their forks sorted and hopefully riding again soon. Disappointing.Posted 11 months ago
Thing is, its through cycle2work so not sure how that works? Might stick a call in to wheelies who supplied it to see what the deal is.
In other news, CRC have been monumentally shit at refunding me for the front wheel (or sending out a replacement). They now want ANOTHER set of photos as they’ve ‘lost’ the last set. 1st time ever I’ve had issues with them but won’t be using them again..Posted 11 months ago
Had them fitted. As far as I can tell the only difference is that they’ve moved the brake pipe cable-tie tabs up a bit and painted three little lines on. Apart from that . . . same. And they’re not straight – tapered as before.
Has to be said, I’m bored of the orange colour now – it’s quite visually distracting when riding. I’ll probably spray them grey to match the rest of the bike.Posted 10 months ago
scotroutes – yeah, i was thinking about exactly that, but I figure that I could always tell a potential buyer. The bike shop takes the frame number during in the process of the re-fit, so there’s some kind of paper trail somewhere if people are really that bothered.Posted 10 months ago
Well, I’ve ordered ANOTHER set of Hope’s as I haven’t had chance to send the front back yet. Hopefully they’ll do a refund on the original front non-boost one sent by mistake. So out for delivery are a pair of Hope wheels which should finally fit the new Reba that’s waiting to go on….all of which coincides with an email telling me that the new fork should be here any day….

or take a photo of it pre-respray. I’ve seen this done with custom-spray motorbikes to reassure buyers down the line that it wasn’t a crash-repair job.Posted 10 months ago
The rigid fork? It’s a standard 100mm hub isn’t it?
The suspension ones have 110/15 maxle jobbies I think.
/edit – seems to change for the 2017 models. Best check what you have.Posted 10 months ago
Results are mixed…
Loads of room for the tyre:
Now, I have a 160 rotor on my Unit so that second point may not be an issue with a 180mm but the first point is annoying. It’s only just touching but still…
(yes, I know the wheel is in the wrong way – different rotor size you see?)
exotic fork 790grams btwPosted 10 months ago
