Yesterday we promised to feature a couple of great sale deals on new cyclocross bikes in anticipation of the competitive ‘cross season starting in just over a week. Well here’s the 2nd deal we have for you (actually we have many more deals in store but this is the 2nd one featured on our site this week):
It’s a Marin Cortina, size 56cm, built up and ready to move out the door. It has Marin’s top end carbon ‘cross frame and mechanical disc brakes. It also has the creative choice of a Sram XO rear derailleur which allows you to (a) run a slightly wider rear cassette than your average road derailleur will allow, which in turn will make for easier work of some of the rougher terrain found in ‘cross racing, and (b) easily modify the drivetrain to a 1x set up because the XO RD is a clutch drive that increases chain tension thus not requiring a guide near the front of the drivetrain if you’re not using a front derailleur. Holy run-on sentence.
Regularly priced at $2750 plus taxes this bike is currently on sale for just $2200 plus taxes. Check it out soon!
