What are Marin bikes famous for?
Established in 1986 in Marin County, California, Marin Bikes was founded around the same time competitive mountain biking began. They embodied the easy-going, go-with-the-flow vibe that is so synonymous with The Golden State.
It wasn’t long before Marin was making world-class frames, from titanium no less, and we’ve seen them go from strength to strength from classic Marin steel frame bikes to the ultra-sleek Marin carbon bike.
In the ‘80s, Joe Murray, one of the founders of Marin Bikes, achieved notoriety in the world of mountain biking, so Marin became a household name pretty quick as soon as they got off the ground. What cemented Marin as one of the industry leaders when it came to bike manufacturing was the win that German athlete Jürgen Beneke secured in 1993 with a Marin Titanium FRS (front and rear suspension) model bike at the inaugural UCI Downhill World Cup. They’d topped the scales with their full-suspension mountain bikes and in no time at all, they were branching out into road bikes, endurance bikes, and now electric bikes. While the Marin men's bike range is one of the most versatile and comprehensive ranges in the market right now, Marin Bikes are great no matter who you are or what your riding style or interest is.
How to choose the right Marin bike?
Marin Bikes offer their own sizing guide that’s updated regularly which will help you when it comes to choosing the right Marin bike. Choosing the right bike comes down to frame size, comfort, style, and pairing all of that with the kind of riding you want to do.
There are a lot of bike components, tools, and equipment that you might get overwhelmed with, seats, handlebars, seat posts, forks, the list goes on, particularly if you’re new to cycling and not that well-versed with all the bits and pieces of a bicycle. In this case, we recommend you buy a complete bike—wheels and all—and get a feel for what you're looking at before you decide to invest in making it personalized. This way, you don’t have to assemble it yourself and can set yourself a good baseline for any future customizations.
If, however, you’re a seasoned rider and you’re looking to add a Marin to your collection or upgrade, then you can customize it to your heart’s content. Just ensure that the components and parts you get are compatible with the Marin bike you’re interested in.
How to maintain Marin bikes?
Maintaining Marin Bikes is like maintaining any other bike; it should be done regularly, almost after every ride, especially if your bike has picked up dirt and debris. Mild soapy water, a medium bristle brush, a rag, and some degreaser will go a long way in the basic maintenance of your bike between rides. There’s also a bunch of other equipment and accessories you can buy but always remember the basics.
We recommend you get it serviced now and then if you’re not super confident doing the more technical maintenance work yourself. Keep an eye out for when things start to wear like your rims, brake pads, handlebar grips, inner tube, tires, even your chain and seat. By upgrading before things completely deteriorate, you ensure you’ll get the most out of your bike.
