MARIN 2021 Bobcat Trail 5

Availability: Out of stock

Following the incredible sales of bicycles during the pandemic 2020 bike craze, we are anticipating and seeing signs that bike suppliers will not have enough bikes for 2021. If you want one of these bikes for next season, we have them on order but they are selling before they arrive. If you would like to secure a bike for next season, a 20% deposit can secure the bike you want. Please call or email to make deposit arrangements.

Why would you pick this bike compared to a Giant Talon, Specialized Rockhopper or Trek Marlin? The Giant offers the most bang for the buck (if just looking at drivetrain), but this bike has a geometry and construction that caters to a bit more skilled rider who might be riding a bit quicker and needs a bit more capable bike. With a slacker head-angle, 120mm air sprung fork (most other bikes in this category have 100 mm travel) and a thru-axle (adds strength and stiffness to the front of the bike) it all adds up to handling a faster rider or tougher terrain better than competitors.

The NEW Shimano Deore 11 speed drivetrain offers almost the range of the 12 speed (this has 11-51 tooth cassette vs. 12 speed having 10-51 tooth) (still quite a bit more range than the 10 speed though at 11-46 tooth).
