The Fairfax line of bikes has the speed of a road bike with a more comfortable upright position for meeting your weekly riding goals.
Built with weekend bike path and weekday fitness riders in mind, the Fairfax bikes are equally at home on shorter after work rides or longer weekend adventures. Disc brakes provide sure stopping power in all conditions, and all frames feature rack and fender mounts for commuter use.

Marin was one of the first brands to bring hybrid bikes to market, and the lineup of flat bar models has evolved over the decades
