Marin Bolinas Ridge Hydro 29er Bike - 2013is rated4.6667out of5by3.
Rated4out of5byBajaracer86fromgood product for the priceI'm a beginner who needed an entry level bike and only one bike that could do anything I needed it to. I have put 250 miles on the bike so far without any problems. Majority of the miles were on the road but I have also used it on xc trails and rocky single track. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a bike priced under $1000. Bad reviews on the fork but it seems fine to me and I like the lock out on the road. Great bike and great price.

Rated5out of5byMrEngineerfromExcellent BikeFor the price, it really doesn't get any better. Aluminum hydroformed frame, hydrolic disc brakes, reliable components, and its a 29er. Yes, the front fork could be better, but the bike could be more expensive. All together, I have put the bike through its paces and it is very solid. It climbs well and is very stable. I'm very happy with it.

Rated5out of5bykjluedfromGreat Bang for the BuckOk, I am rating this bike based on price as it should be.
Sure, there are a few things that need upgrading on this rig but you are not going to buy a bike at this price point that doesn't.
Over all though, this bike takes me to all the places my friends are getting on their bikes that cost 5x as much.
I have taken this bike on several difficult trails here in Western NC and never once felt the bike would fail me.
