Offering versatility at a great value, the Marin Fairfax SC2 bike is a speedy, sporty ride with an upright position for increased comfort and visibility when riding.
Triple-butted, hydroformed aluminum frame is designed to optimize efficiency and ensure a comfortable, stable ride
Upright positioning increases the rider's field of view and reduces strain on the hands, wrists and shoulders
Triple crankset and 8-speed cassette provide 24 gears for handling whatever grades you may encounter on the ride
Shimano shifters and derailleurs move you smoothly from gear to gear; trigger shifters operate intuitively for simple shifts
Linear-pull brakes are forged for strength and power modulated for controlled response
Stable, smooth-rolling 700 x 32c tires feature puncture protection to deter flats
Composite platform pedals accommodate most shoes, and feature aluminum cages for efficient power transfer to pedals

If you are interested in a bike that you can take almost anywhere - this is your bike. It is flexible enough to handle the commute to work, touring, and light/medium gravel trails. I didn't want to be restricted to paved surfaces, as would be the case with a road bike. When considering this purchase I knew I didn't want a comfort bike and was considering a hybrid, but wanted a lighter frame that I could easily transport. This bike is the perfect for the variety of rides I take and it can keep pace with a road bike. And as is always an important aspect - the price is right. I mulled over this purchase for a while and am really happy with my final decision to buy this bike.
