Marin Bikes Alpine Trail 7

We all know that Marin is back in the game with some great bikes, and are certainly not afraid to try new things. They've pushed hard into the lower end of the price spectrum while simultaneously releasing the Wolf Ridge, their head-turning, top-end trail bike. Their bikes are coming fast from all angles. Building on the success of the Rift…

It's with great sadness that my Alpine Trail is returning to Marin, having provided me with a fantastic bike for the year and a sturdy testbed for numerous parts. The Alpine Trail 8 sits one above the 7 and is the top model but still relatively amenable on the wallet. Although it was tested initially as spec, it has been…

Marin returns once more with a Naild equipped bike aiming to create the ultimate trail bike. Marin now has two R3ACT - 2 Play bikes in the range: the Wolf Ridge, which is a 160mm fast and light trail bike; and the Mount Vision we have here, a 150mm do-it-all trail bike for harder hitting applications. That's right, travel no…

Marin Bikes B17 1

For those of a certain age, the name ‘Marin B17’ will invoke fond memories of early full suspension mountain bike design, happy hardcore on the radio and probably more than a little luminous lycra. Halcyon days indeed! The original B17 was one of the first bikes designed for throwing about and having fun on; making use of a more progressive…

In recent years Marin have seriously stepped up their game. The appointment of Matt Cipes as their MTB Product Manager in 2015 putting them on a mission to bring their range back to the top level, where they belong.

Change is afoot at Marin, the long established brand with more MTB heritage than most is returning to form in a gradual and purposeful way. Those who have a keen eye for the detail may notice some subtle changes in the 2017 range, but they won't be found at the top end, rather it's happening where most riding occurs, in…

Available in 2 models, this is the Nail Trail 7 and sees a few key upgrades over the lower spec 6 including a dropper post, SLX shifting, but most notably a Yari fork to dish out…

Marin Bikes Team CXR 29er

When I opened the box from California, I instantly got delusions of grandeur; I’ve raced to a high level in several disciplines, so with a shiny white carbon steed, surely I could add another to that list! Lightweight, stiff, bolt thru front and rear and a tapered head tube, the CXR 29er certainly looked like it would fit my delusions…

Straight away it is clear that something has changed on the new Mount Vision, there is a touch of finesse about it, the almost industrial business like looks have not gone completely but the bike just looks that bit classier than previous incarnations. The changes are not just cosmetic, this years Mount Vision has received something of an overhaul with…

The Rocky Ridge has built a steady following over the past few years and it is particularly popular with heavier riders that still want light weight and performance from their tough frames. The combination of low weight, strength and value make it an attractive proposition and we were more than happy to give it a good thrashing to see if…
