Wait for 2009 Marin or not?

edited May 2008 in MTB buying advice
I am in the market for buying a new full suspension. I am certain I have narrowed it down to a Marin Mount Vision. What I am stuck on is do I cope with my old bike till the 2009 bikes come out or do I just go with the 2008 now?

Will the 2009 bike be much different/better and will I kick myself? Does anyone know of any specs/pictures yet?

Any advice would be great

Thanks

    If you wait for the '09 (dunno the release dates) you should be able to get an '08 at a reduced price ;)

    You may find on the 09 model the forks will have a maxle axle to make the front end stiffer.
    Also the rear shock maybe upgraded to.
    And the bike parts may be tweaked or changed.
    I personaly wait and see what the 09 model is and then buy that or buy the
    08 model at reduced price.

    That's what I'd do too

    Before you decide you're going to wait and buy a 2008 Mount Vision in the sales, you might want to look into their current stock levels.

    I'm sure somebody on here said there were none available.

    It's obviously one of this year's hot bikes, so don't count on getting it at a discount later in the year.

    Personally, I've always gone for discounted previous year models - but I think you have to pick wisely and go for an excellent bike which somehow hasn't become as popular as others.

    mount visions are sold out for the year! so if you can get one get it now as bike prices will be rising next year!
