Marin Four Corners Touring Bike - 2017
$999.99 MSRP $1,099.99
When the call of the road strikes, the Marin Four Corners is a bike that utility, durability, and reliability to keep you going on tour for as long as you want to ride. With a frame and fork crafted from double butted chromoly steel, the Four Corners is as much a work of steel art as it is a fully-functional touring bike. The comfort oriented geometry makes the going a little easier, thanks to the tall headtube and wide, stable wheel base. Full rack and fender mounts give you plenty of provisions for carrying your gear and staying dry. If you've ever been touring, you know that reliability and functionality are key with components. That's why Marin went with the bombproof reliability of a Shimano Sora 3x9 drivetrain. Shimano has a reputation for utter reliability and ease of service all over the world, so in the unlikely even something should go wrong, it'll still be easy to fix. And 3x9 drivetrains have been a standard in touring for a long time, and with good reason. The robust gearing gives you plenty of options to get a fully loaded bike over just about any mountain pass, with minimal gear overlap and easy maintenance. Mechanical disc brakes provide powerful, all-weather stopping performance, and doublewall alloy 32-spoke wheels setup with Schwalbe's amazing Silento 700x40 tires. If you have the itch for touring, the Four Corners is ready to go, right out of the box.
