This is one of my new favorite bikes.
Whether or not you've been in the sport of cycling for a few weeks or years, you know that getting into it can be a costly adventure. There are always budget friendly bikes, however there are always compromises. Typically the under $2k msrp price range we usually recommend sticking to a nice hard tail with good components rather than trying to pack a lot into a dual suspension platform with sub par components. Well, in a time where the price of bikes are always increasing Marin has changed the game with the new 2017 Marin Hawk Hill. This bike has everything you would ever need in a mountain bike. All the important aspects that manufacturers leave out on their entry level full suspensions Marin covered flawlessly. Tapered headtube/steertube, air fork and rear shock, thru-axle system front and rear, nice wide bar, 1x10 wide range drivetrain, tubeless ready wheels and finally a modern geometry that most high end bikes in the market are only starting to catch up to now. As an overall package, nothing we have sold in the past few years has even come close to how well Marin set this bike up. Coming in at $1899, this is a steal.
