What's In The Shop 5 - Simplicity Is Key

Russell CuttsComment

The Pine Mountain is a retro-inspired modern mountain bike designed for riders who want something simple. In a world where tech fueled full suspension rigs dominate the market, the Pine Mountain brings something a little different to the table and salutes the early days of Marin's history in mountain biking.

We have 2 Marin Pine Mountains in stock both in Medium frames. 

What Marin say:

"The Pine Mountain is taking hardtail trail riding to the next level with plus-sized, tubeless ready Schwalbe 27.5+ x 2.9" tyres. These tyres roll fast, grip anything and bring a different experience to rigid trail riding.

The 4130 butted chromoly steel frame and fork have aggressive geometry for powering through rock gardens and clearing technical climbs, with rack and fender eyelets and three bottle mounts for when a backcountry expedition calls.

The SRAM GX rear derailleur is matched to an 11-42t cassette for a 380% range, 1x10 drivetrain capable of climbing figurative walls and ripping literal downhills.

It only took us 30 years of trail riding to create the Pine Mountain. Enjoy a ride like none other."

What the critics say:

"This latest Pine Mountain attempts to capture some of that original magic yet combines it with some of mountain biking’s more recent developments."

"A very important part of this bike’s spec is its plus-sized tyres, which at this price point are still a rare sight."

" Like a thorny twig, the Pine Mountain is plastered with eyelets and mounts meaning full-mudguards, racks and water bottles galore can be installed for those who want to adventure."
