Marin Lombard Road Bike - 2017
Road bikes are changing and they're changing fast, and the Marin Lombard is an excellent example of where they've evolved to. Eschewing the racer-oriented bikes of the past, the Lombard is a bike that's designed with ultimate utility in mind. Whether you're commuting to work, riding around campus, or heading out for a long ride into the country side...maybe even some light touring, the Marin Lombard is a bike that can do it all. The Series 3 6061 aluminum frame and fork are stiff, durable, and lightweight, so they deliver up a fun and predictable ride that you'll never get tired of. The geometry is a nice middle ground between performance and comfort, so your lower back will thank you, but it also rewards getting in the drops when you want to give it that little extra nudge. Massive tire clearance lets you run 35mm+ tires, like the excellent Schwalbe Road Cruiser tires it comes with. Promax Render R mechanical disc brakes slow your roll in any weather conditions, while the Shimano Sora 27-speed drivetrain gives you all the gears you need to get up and over just about anything in your path, even when you're loaded up with stuff.
