What's In The Shop 4 - Time for Touring

Russell CuttsComment

I think the best way to imagine the Four Corners is in as a loyal pooch. Whether you're commuting, touring, adventuring, bikepacking, or just looking for something fun, the Four Corners is up for it; sat waiting patiently at the door for you with bottles filled and panniers attached (really stretching this metaphor). It's up for anything you can throw at it and, like you, will always be itching to come back for more. 

Four Corners

Four Corners

Was: £850 - Now: £650!

We have 2 Marin Four Corners in stock in both Medium and Large frames. Both bikes are in Green and Orange.

What Marin say:

"The Four Corners is perfectly suited to today's commute and tomorrow's touring adventure. The 4130 butted chromoly steel frame and fork are designed to handle fully loaded touring, with three bottle mounts, rack and fender eyelets, lowrider fork mounts, generous tire clearance and mechanical disc brakes to bring it all to a stop. The bars are set high for all-day comfort and heads-up visibility in traffic, and a Shimano 27-speed drivetrain for long-term durability and a 500% gear range to tackle any hill, with any load. Carry a laptop and change of clothes during the week, a tent and camp stove come Saturday morning. Get to work, and get out of town."

What the critics say:

"For the city dweller, it fills the niche for everyday commuting needs, and for the adventure seeker, the large tire clearance and touring capability encourages exploring on gravel and dirt. As cyclists, what tales would we have to share if everything went as planned? The Marin Four Corners is ready for a change of route and a story to tell."
