Marin Presidio 4
$2,349.00
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.
