The Marin Pine Mountain 1 is one of Marin’s heritage bikes celebrating their 30 years of making bikes.
The Pine Mountain series is taking hardtail trail riding to the next level with wide 27.5+ tires on tubeless-ready rims. These tires roll fast, grip anything and bring a different experience to rigid trail riding. The 4130 butted chromoly steel frame and fork have aggressive geometry for powering through rock gardens and clearing technical climbs, with rack and fender eyelets and three bottle mounts for when a backcountry expedition calls. The SRAM X7 Type 2 rear derailleur is matched to an 11-42t cassette for a 380% range, 1×10 drivetrain capable of climbing figurative walls and ripping literal downhills. It only took us 30 years of trail riding to create the Pine Mountain, enjoy a ride like none other. –
Why such big tires you may ask? Simple, in layman terms, they are designed to cushion your ride while running softer pressures offering more traction and allowing a rider to not kiss the dirt as much in mud/sand/snow and on rocks.
Fewer moving parts means less maintenance issues, less to wear out.
