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.
Marin bikes purchased on REI.com can only be shipped to the REI store of your choice for pickup. The bikes are fully assembled and the shipping is free!
We cannot ship Marin bikes to your home or other addresses.
I have the 2011 model, which is nearly identical. While this bike can handle moderate hills, its few gears makes it unsuitable for rides with many steep hills. I've ridden it as much as 16 miles at a time quite comfortably, but I wouldn't want to ride it much more than 20 or so. It's a perfect bike for commuting, and is lightweight enough to lift onto hooks on the train. It's also very attractive, nearly every time I ride it someone compliments its looks!
