Marin Four Corners 2019 Bike
Marin County California is regarded as the birthplace of mountain biking. With niche communities back then shaping what it is today, and with Marin Bikes' inception coming shortly after, the company has deep roots in the sport and now offers many styles of bikes to suit off-roaders and commuters alike.
The Marin Four Corners is an epic steel workhorse that you can use for pretty much anything - Commuting, touring, group sportives, you can even get bodacious on some gravel singletrack. It's got a wide 27-speed 9x3 drivetrain to tackle all grades and long distances, plus low-maintenance cable disc brakes and fat cyclocross tyres for reassuring control on mixed terrain.
Although the chromoly steel frame and fork comes with a slight weight penalty and isn't for everybody due to how it handles, its softness and flexibility helps to reduce vibration and retain comfort over long distances in the saddle. Plus there's nothing quite like the subtle bend of a chainstay when you're railing a corner in the woods - the kind that makes the tyre buzz the frame. Then there's the spring-back - learn to expect and control this trait associated with chromoly tubing and you will become a steel wielding wizard with admirable finesse.
Also please be aware that the smaller sizes use a 650c sized wheel in order to stay proportionate to the frame, The larger sizes use a traditional 700c wheel.
