› Affordable Chromoly touring bike
ast but not least in this fantastic range of adventure bikes from Marin is the Muirwood. It’s made from chromoly steel which Marin says should last you a lifetime and you can pretty much carry anything you want on the bike. You have mounting points at the fork, at the seatpost, at the downtube, underneath the top of the seat post and many more.
Although Marin says this is a pavement bike, the
Lmounting points beg to differ as it seems the frame is always ready to accept panniers, bags, bottle cages and much more. The frame also has 360 degree reflective strips for safe night riding as well as puncture proof tyres to keep you going no matter where you are or what ground you are on.
The 29er wheel size was chosen for the bike so that the it could have a larger and wider contact point to the ground, ensuring stability for those late night city rides when going on and off pavements are a norm. There is no internal cable routing, so maintenance is uber easy. The Muirwoods also comes with three chainrings at the front, giving the rider a wide variety of gears to play with at any given time.
