Speak to Wayne at Rapide ... he may be able to build you a Tigre for a similar price.

Tigre will blow the Marlin out the water i.t.o capability with far more progressive geometry and durability with a 4130 CrMo frame.

His customer service is unmatched in SA

This is the best advice I have read online in a long time. I would 100% go with the Tigre, I wouldn't even think twice.

Right so INSTANT reply from Wayne. He unfortunately can’t do a built bike due to not having any components due to this shortage ! Can however supply a frame and I build.

I guess what I’ll have to look at now is what would cost for a groupo forks and wheels and weigh that up against the cost of the trek 

I love the build process so that’s no issue it’s just weather or not I can find parts and at what cost.
