What's In The Shop?

Russell CuttsComment

As it will soon be time for us to make room for next year's bicycles, we thought we would write a few posts letting you guys know what bikes we currently have in our shops. Grab a deal while you can!

First up is the Marin Nail Trail 6. An aggressive, all-rounder hardtail that's just as fun on technical trails as it is on all day epics.

We have 1 Marin Nail Trail 6 29er left in stock in a 19" frame.

What Marin say:

"Longer, lower, slacker is the mantra for the updated Nail Trail line this year. The advanced Series 3 double butted aluminum frame features internal cable routing and a 142x12mm rear thru-axle, along with modern trail-focused geometry. Drivetrain duties are handled by a wide-range SRAM NX 1x11 system, while the wheelset features tubeless-ready rims with 29mm inner width mated to Schwalbe performance tires. A RockShox Recon Silver fork smooths out the ride while Shimano hydraulic disc brakes help keep speed in check."

What the critics say: 

"The Marin Nail Trail 6 is has a predictable and fun ride, which is backed up by a smart component selection that will last well.

As far as we’re concerned, the measure of a great bike is how much you end up wanting to ride it – and how little you notice the actual bike when out. The Marin Nail Trail 6 fits right in there – whilst it looks great when lent up against a tree, you soon forget about it when pointed down hill.

It inspires you to get out and give anything a whirl , and is a mountain bike perfect for upgrading as you progress with the bike."
