Steel is real.
That’s what everybody says, steel is real. Really comfortable, really affordable, really smooth riding and classic looking.
The Marin Nicasio has a steel frame and fork and it may just be your next favorite bike. The Nicasio is outfitted with a Shimano Claris drivetrain, Promax mechanical disc brakes, durable 32-spoke wheels and 30mm puncture resistant (but still nice riding) tires. It has a familiar smooth ride that reminds us of road bikes from the 1980′s. Actually, the price reminds us of the ’80′s too. It’s under $800.
Bicycling magazine named the Nicasio “One of the best 17 road bikes of 2018″
