The Marin Fairfax bike tackles all-season commutes, urban rides and fitness cruises with ease thanks to its upright riding position, efficient frame geometry and reliable components.
Triple-butted, hydroformed aluminum frame and carbon fiber fork work to optimize efficiency and also ensure a comfortable, stable ride
Upright positioning and adjustable stem help increase the rider's field of view and reduce strain on the hands, wrists and shoulders
Truvativ triple crankset and an 8-speed cassette provide 24 gears for handling everything from easy climbs to aggressive sprints

Linear-pull brakes are forged for strength and power modulated for controlled response
Double-wall rims and Kenda 700x28 road tires provide a sporty ride and withstand customary hard-surface abuse
Marin Alp saddle is contoured for all-day comfort and anatomic support
Composite platform pedals accommodate most athletic shoes

After its initial break-in period you might notice your bicycle performing less responsively than the day you brought it home. Not to worry, this is typical of all new bicycles and simply reflects that cables have stretched or their housings have seated themselves into final position. To keep running at peak performance, all REI bicycles come with a FREE warranty tune-up, which should be accomplished between the first 100-200 miles of riding or after the first two months if you're accumulating miles less quickly. Contact your nearest REI bike shop for details and an appointment for this important service.
