Marin Four Corners Touring Bike - 2018
When the open road calls, the Marin Four Corners is a bike with the 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 head tube and long, stable wheel base. Full rack and fender mounts give you plenty of options for carrying your gear and staying dry. Furthermore, the frames feature size-proportionate wheels with the XS and S frames utilizing 650B wheels and the M, L, and XL frames sporting 700c wheels for a proper fit.
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-speed drivetrain. Shimano has a reputation for utter reliability and ease of service all over the world, so in the unlikely event something should go wrong, it'll still be easy to fix. And 3x9-speed drivetrains have been a standard in touring for a long time, and with good reason. The wide gearing range 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 set up with stout WTB tires are the epitome of dependability and toughness.
