What's In The Shop 3 - Capable Commuter

Russell CuttsComment

Next up we have the Marin Lombard. Originally one of the staff favourites back in 2016, the Lombard is what you get if you cross a cyclocross bike and a dedicated tourer/commuter. This bike is the best option for the person who wants to do it all in all weathers. Or even just someone who wants as much style and versatility as possible.



Was: £950 - Now: £700!

We have 2 Marin Lombards in stock in both 52cm and 56cm frames. Act fast as the Lombard isn't making a return in 2018, making these our last two ever!

What Marin say:

"Part adventure bike, and part urban warrior. Birthed from cyclocross and touring parents, the Lombard can tackle the weekly commute as well as stretch its legs to venture out on weekend road or gravel adventures. A Shimano Sora triple 27-speed drivetrain with wide-range gearing help reduce the strain of hills while mixed-tread Schwalbe Delta Cruiser tires provide secure handling both on road and off. Promax Render R disc brakes provide all-weather performance and a unique reflective decal system on the frame helps keep you visible while riding at night."
