Bike Feature: Marin Pioneer Trail

We don’t know exactly what’s going on with the weather these days. As this is typed it’s about -25C outside but within a day or two it’s supposed to be close to 0C. Whatever the case we know that spring is coming and as happens every year it will be here before we know it.

That’s why we’re already receiving 2010 Marin bikes, including the Pioneer Trail pictured above. In the last few years we’ve seen a real manufacturers’ focus on base model hard tail mountain bikes and the Pioneer Trail is no exception. The components are standard fare for a bike in this price range with an entry level Shimano drivetrain and some house-brand bits. It’s nice to see some reasonably light weight butted alloy used in parts like the bars and stem.

The biggest feature of all though is the quality 6160 double butted hydroformed aluminum frame. The attention to detail with the design of the tubeset that makes up this frame is second to none in this price range and we anticipate it will make this model a hot seller. The Pioneer Trail is only $470. We have most sizes for this model in stock now so stop by anytime to check one out.
