The second bike we're featuring is the the Marin Gestalt 2. This is a bike that's designed to carry on rolling when those smooth tarmac roads turn into loose, uneven back country lanes. As well as a ride for gravel, the Gestalt 2 is just as at home on your daily commute or as a tough winter steed for when the weather gets cold and wet. It's tough, fast, and it looks good. The whole package.

What Marin say:
"Looking to get Beyond Road? The Gestalt 2 can take you there, whether the road is paved or not. Our lightweight, butted aluminum Series 3 frame is matched with a lightweight, vibration-damping carbon-bladed fork. Drivetrain duties are handled by a dependable SRAM 1x10 drivetrain with a wide-range 11-42t cassette. Tektro mechanical disc brakes provide confidence-inspiring stopping power, while Schwable's sublime G-ONE folding bead, 30c tires roll smoothly on road and provide a surprising amount of grip on dirt. Integrated rack and fender mounts also help to make the Gestalt 2 an excellent choice for commuting or light touring."
What the critics say:
"The Marin Gestalt 2 is an absolute blast to ride off-road. That extra-low gear means previously unrideable slopes can be tackled with ease."
"The Marin Gestalt 2 is a clever bike with a lot of flexibility for on and off road riding. It delivers the benefits of single ring shifting without the expense."
