Marin Hardtail Mountain Bikes
The Marin Hardtail mountain bikes are one of our best sellers. They are a type of all-terrain mountain bike that only has suspension forks on the front and not the rear. These are incredibly versatile bikes help you tackle all different types of off-road trail, and helping you carry on when the going gets tough!
Types of Marin Hardtail Mountain Bikes
This type of mountain bikes come in different categories. Lightweight Hardtail, for example, is for the long-distance mountain biker with endurance, efficiency and comfort is paramount. There are also Hard Trail Hardtail Bikes, which is for the knarly, twisty single-track rider who wants adrenaline pumping through their veins along with technical rides.
There’s also different suspension fork travel available. The more fork travel there is on the suspension, the smoother the ride. However, fork travel increases usually along with price, so it really does depend on how much you want to spend.
These aren’t the only differences you can have within Hardtail mountain bikes. These bikes can also come in the 3 main wheel sizes; 26″, 27,”, and 29″, and each size has various advantages;
26″ wheels are not the most efficient you can get, these wheels are better for younger and smaller riders who are looking to transition from a smaller child’s bike to an adult one.
The slightly larger 27″ wheels are more efficient than the smaller size and stronger than larger wheels. These are usually ridden by the big hit crews that ride on single-track, rough trails that are really tough riding for the bikes.
The largest of the main three wheel sizes is 29″, and provides maximum efficiency and smoothness over rough ground out of the three sizes. These wheels are usually favourable by the Lightweight crew. Interestingly enough, this size of wheels came out after the 27″ size. The 29″ traverses over rough ground very efficiently, often not the chosen wheel by the technical crew due to its lack of side on strength, it’s still great for long-distance riding.
