Presidio 4 is the successor to the Fairfax SC6 and among the very best-spec'd, best-conceived, best-equipped commuter bikes on the market. It features Gates Carbon Drive (belt drive), an Alfine 11 internally geared hub, Alfine dynamo hub, Supernova lights, Tubus Racktime rack, color-matched metal fenders, and a kickstand. Compare to our Daily Grinder commute version of the Soma Wolverine, and you'll find mostly identical specs as well as a few differences: -Presidio has an aluminum frame and carbon fork, whereas the Wolverine Daily Grinder has a Tange Prestige cromoly frame and either a cromoly or carbon fork. -Presidio has Continental Sport Contact II 700 x 32 tires, while the Wolverine Daily Grinder has wider (700 x 38) Panaracer Pasela gumwall tires. --Presidio comes with higher gearing than Wolverine: 50/22 vs 46/22, although we give our customers the option of 46/22 with Presidio at no charge (just ask). How to know which ratio is for you? If you don't have steep hills to climb and/or a lot of stuff to haul around, and/or if you're a strong rider who likes to go fast, 50/22 should do well for you. If you have climbs to do like those in the West Hills of Portland, or if you're in Seattle, San Francisco, or other hilly locales, 46/22 is recommended. If you're not sure which one you'll like better, don't hesitate to ask us for guidance. This bike was very highly reviewed when it went by its previous moniker: the Fairfax SC6 DLX. Pro tip: as the 2019 Presidio 4 is just about identical to the 2018 Fairfax SC6 DLX, you should know that we have most sizes of the latter on sale for $1899, and that we can ship them. We aren't allowed to ship the Presidio. See Related Items.

Marin has given us permission to ship the SC6. We fully assemble, ride, and tune bikes before shipping them. No tax for non-Oregon residents. Oregon residents have a $15 bike tax, but we'll pay that for you just this one time. Unlike almost all other bike manufacturers, Marin seems to have paid close attention to the national "ultimate urban bike" and "ultimate utility bike" competitions that Oregon Manifest has organized in the past few years. A preponderance of those bikes share a set of attributes that we wish were on all urban-oriented bikes: Gates Carbon Drive (belt drive)--cleaner, more durable, much lower maintenance than a chain An internally geared hub such as Shimano Alfine 11--cleaner, more reliable, longer lasting, with far less maintenance, no rust, and scant or zero gunk Disc brakes, particularly hydraulic disc brakes for superior stopping power and modulation in all kinds of weather (especially rain) A dynamo hub with front and rear dynamo lights--a complete, very powerful, autonomous lighting system you pretty much never have to worry about Fenders--of course A rack--of course Now, these also happen to be the attributes that most of the bikes we sell go out the door with. That is, after we're finished rebuilding the front wheel around a dynamo hub and adding the lights, rack, fenders, and whatnot. Marin has made its own version of such a bike, right out of the box: the Fairfax SC6. This one is sold mostly in Northern Europe, with small numbers available in North America. Not skimping on the details, Marin spec'd the Fairfax SC6 with exactly the things we use on high-end custom builds: outstanding Supernova front and rear lights, which are about as good as it gets Shimano Alfine dynamo hub Super high-quality, puncture-resistant, long-lasting tires (Schwalbe Marathon Supreme, 700x32) stiff aero rims (seriously, you'll be surprised what a difference this makes to your speed) Shimano T445 hydraulic disc brakes High-quality 6061 aluminum tubing Carbon fork with alloy steerer Internal cable routing Alfine 11 internal gearing with a very wide, 409% gear range Gates Carbon Drive CenterTrack belt system with 50/22 gearing, which optimizes the Alfine 11 hub's range for spirited city riding in places without steep hills. We can adjust gearing down to 46/22 without a problem, for $65. Ergon brand ergonomic grips Fenders (alloy) powdercoated to match the stealthy, matte black frame A Racktime Custom Integrated Match-It QL3 rear rack with mounting systems for Ortlieb and Racktime bags (as well as other bags) A chainstay-mounted kickstand In short, it's like Marin gets us. For sizing information and more information, see Marin's SC6 page.
The Gestalt is for the drop bar rider that doesn’t want to stick to pavement and can’t help but get dirty no matter the route. Long distance commuters and all-weather riders will appreciate the fender and rack mounts and the sure stopping disc brakes, and the larger volume tires are right at home on that unexpected detour. An efficient 1x11 drivetrain reduces the number of moving parts while retaining a useful range of gears for cross country pursuits, and the Beyond Road Geometry offers a blend of endurance road handling with enhanced stability for off-pavement use.
