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.
The Rocky Ridge 7.4 brings all of the things that aggressive trail riders need, in a simple, lightweight hardtail platform. Trail geometry by the numbers: 67.5 degree headtube angle, 420mm chainstay, 27.5″-wheels and a roomy rider compartment. Thru-axles front and rear keep the bike razor sharp in corners, while the Trail specifc angled seat tube gives the top tube extra length when the seat is up fop climbing and XC riding, and shortens the cockpit when the seat is lowered allowing you to adjust your body position during aggressive riding. Rock Shox covers the 130mm of travel up front, a 1×10-speed Shimano drivetrain, e13 chain guide, and Shimano M445 hydraulic disc brakes keep thing within limits on the up and down.
Featuring the same lightweight aluminum frame construction as our adult bikes, but with features appropriate for the smaller rider, the Bayview Trail models will be the key to your child’s freedom, and establish a lifelong love of riding a bike.
