Introducing Marin Bicycles: Discover A New Side To Bikes

Marin County is probably what most of us think of when we think of California. Nestled in the Bay Area, Marin boasts some of the most beautiful and scenic landscapes in the country, as well as some of the best food, wine, and general quality of living around. It's no wonder that out of this West Coast Wonderland came one of the first production mountain bike companies.

Marin Bicycles has been making bikes for a very long time, but while they've pioneered technology in mountain bikes and sponsored professional road racing teams, they've never forgotten their roots-- which is making bikes for people who ride because it's fun.

See, Marin understands that for every rider who is going to race on one of their super high end bikes, there are dozens more who just want something fun and practical to go out and get some exercise or ride with their kids.

If this sounds like you, then Marin's got your back. Far from being a company that puts all their oats in the "serious"  bikes basket, Marin has built their reputation on trickling some of their most cutting edge technology down to even their most affordable bikes. You know, the kind of bikes that most of us pull out on sunny weekend afternoons to go ride the neighborhood with our kids, or cruise the local bike path to get some exercise.

These bikes are designed to be low on maintenance and high on fun and comfort. No matter where you like to ride-- from shredding trails on the Hawk Hill, to redefining what road riding means on a Gestalt, or just cruising the local bike path on a brand new Stinson, there's a Marin out there that will make you feel excited to get out and ride. for the big question: which Marin is right for you?
