2017 Marin Mount Vision 5
2017 Marin Mount Vision XM 5

Sale price $1800.00

The Marin Mountain Vision 5 27.5″ mountain bike is a full suspension trail rig that has the chops to keep up with any bike on the trail…and maybe sneak its way on to the podium as well.

At the heart of the Mount Vision is a trail ready 6061 aluminum frame with a 140mm of rear suspension travel that comes courtesy of the IsoTrac suspension platform. Up front a RockShox Sektor Silver RL 27.5″ fork gives you 140mm of suspension travel to soak up whatever the trail throws at you, while a 12mm thru axle helps stiffen things up in the front end. A Shimano 1×10-speed drivetrain simplifies shifting, while still giving you plenty of gearing to get up and over any climb, thanks to a 32T chainring paired with a wide range 11-42 cassette. The bike rolls on a set of doublewall tubeless ready rims laced to Formula hubs with Centerlock disc mounts and front and rear thru axle. Stopping is handled by a set of Shimano BR-M315 hydraulic disc brakes, that slow your roll on a dime, regardless of the weather or terrain.

Need a cyclocross / gravel / winter / training bike?

More than a road bike the bikes that are in the new “Gravel Grinder” category can function very well at multiple tasks. These sport utility road bikes make excellent all purpose bikes. Ride these bikes to the end of the road and beyond.

Compared to a road bike these bikes have larger tires, greater chainstay and fork clearance, a more stable and comfortable geometry, wider gear ranges.

Larger tires give the bike more traction, a better ride on uneven surfaces, more stability overall. Tire width can range from 30mm to 48mm for the gravel grinder bikes.

Louis Garneau Garibaldi 1 Gravel Bike

Bigger clearances at the chainstays and fork allow the bikes to be fitted with full fenders. Perfect for commuting or winter road riding/training. If the roads are icy you can fit studded tires for greater traction.

In addition to wider tires, gravel bikes have geometry that favors stability and comfort. The wheelbase of a gravel bike is longer than most road bikes, thanks to longer chainstays and slacker head tube angles. Head tubes are generally taller as well, placing the rider in a more relaxed, upright position. Bottom brackets are often lower, which gives the rider the sensation of riding in, rather than on the bicycle.

The end result of these geometry differences is a more comfortable, confidence-inspiring and forgiving ride than one would find in a typical road bike.

Garneau Gravel Bike Garibaldi 3

Gearing is another area where these bikes diverge from the pack. Given the terrain, many gravel bikes feature compact or smaller gearing and wide-range cassettes. Cranksets with 50/34 or 48/32t are common. Likewise, many gravel bikes come with 1x gearing with ultra-wide 10-42t cassette.


Cross on the Commons Qualicum Oct 22

The only new event for #COTR2017 takes place in little, old Qualicum Beach at the Community Civic Centre. The course is centered around the various playing fields adjacent to the Civic Centre. Expect lots of grass (probably wet and slippery), not much elevation, sections of single track, a BMX track (ridden backwards) and some sand pits. The Ravensong Swimming Pool is only a hop-skip- and-jump away so a great family location.  Click to go to the website.

Very spectator friendly race lots of action, come out and watch.

Racing starts at 10:00am and each heat will take about an hour.

Marin Hawk Hill – Affordable Dual Suspension Fun

The Marin Hawk Hill comes with 120mm of travel in both the front RockShox Recon Silver RL fork and the X-Fusion O2 Pro R air shock in the rear. This fork and rear shock pairing brings unprecedented value to this price point. The bike comes with wide 27mm internal width rims – built asymmetrical for added strength – but Marin made sure that when they were designing the frame it would be adaptable for upgrades down the line. Things like built in fittings for internal dropper post routing and 9-12mm rear thru-axle dropouts allow for wheel and component upgrades over the lifetime of the bike. Marin wanted the Hawk Hill to not only provide great value fresh off the sales floor, but also have the flexibility for riders to bring it to the next level as they progress on the trails.
2017 Marin Hawk Hill. Trail bike built for fun!
There is no doubt that this full suspension model offers a great value to the rider, built around trail ready 27.5” wheels, and a 1×10 Shimano Deore Shadow Plus drivetrain.

Marin Fairfax SC 4 Belt Drive


The Marin Fairfax SC 4 Belt drive gives you road bike speed, urban utility and a smooth-running belt-driven, internally-geared 8-speed drivetrain. You can have it all. A lightweight Series 3 alloy frame and fork, hydraulic disc brakes and reflective sidewall, puncture-resistant Schwalbe tires will make the Fairfax SC4 Belt your go-to bike for commuting and other urban adventures.
Series 3 Frames have 3D forged dropouts with integrated post mount disc brake mounts, rear mounted kickstand attachment, and dual eyelets for quick and easy fender and rack mounting.
What are the advantages of the belt drive? The advantages are that it is clean, quiet, light and strong. Carbon Drive never requires any lubrication, and if it gets dirty you can simply hose it off with no worry of rust. Gates Carbon Drive is also lighter and stronger than most chains due to the carbon fiber cords, and users typically get two to three times the lifespan of a chain.
