Bikes ... XC Marathon
Cross Country, the name says it: "Bike across the world". Comfort yields to a speed which is carried to extremes by the biker - all thanks to a stiff frame construction and the minimal required range of spring. Fully suspended frames allow for a design in which the suspension unit is located inside the top tube. This enables the manufacturers to not deviate from the frame geometry of the hardtail, but still create a bike which works with the biker if needed.
