Marin Pine Mountain 2
This is a bike designed for fun, not Strava records. A throwback to Marin's early days, the Pine Mountain 2 forgoes a carbon or aluminum frame in favor of Columbus steel. The 27.5+ wheels relentlessly grip the trail, especially at lower pressures. A 1x11 Shimano XT drivetrain, Fox 34 front fork, hydraulic disc brakes, and a dropper seatpost complete the 28-pound package. The Pine Mountain 2 will cost $2,700.
