Marin Pine Mountain 2 27.5+ Mountain Bike - 2017. From Marin County, arguably the birthplace of mountain biking, comes the ultimate all-trail adventure bike, the Marin Pine Mountain 2. The clean esthetic includes a satin clear coat over the Columbus tubing, partially internal cable routing, exposed brazes and a variety of emblems containing the numbers 86 and 16, a tribute to Marin's 30-year history. But look beneath its classic style and straightforward design and you'll see decades of mountain bike innovation and input from weekend riders to professional cyclists. Start with a premium Columbus Thron Chromoly butted and formed frameset that features custom, investment-cast dropouts with rear Naild 12-3-9 quick-release thru axle and 148x12mm Boost spacing, so you're ready for the most demanding trails. Suspension duties are handled by a Fox Float 34 fork with a 3-position lever, meaning it's easy to dial in go. A new Shimano XT 1x11 drivetrain helps put the power to the ground and a KS LEV Integra dropper post allow the rider to remotely adjust the seat post when the going gets tough. Shimano Deore XT components are quick-shifting, lightweight, and supremely reliable, and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes will stop you fast and with no skidding. WTB Trail Blazer tires grip the path but still give you low rolling resistance and the extra-wide width gives you nearly the same tire contact as a more narrow 29 tire, with added maneuverability. And finally, a Marin Mountain handlebar with a gentle 9 degree sweep keeps your body forward for improved front end control. But that's not all the Pine Mount offers. Rack eyelets and triple bottle mounts make it ideal for your next bike packing adventure. Now you can ride the Pine Mountain hard all day and then pack up and head to your next campsite. Who needs four wheels when the Marin Pine Mountain 2 is waiting for you?
